Default Donating Single stage press

random conversation today with one of the therapists at work ended up with her asking the cost of reloading gear. she was looking at requesting to purchase a loader for the therapy dept at the hospital. i was like wtf!!???

she explained that it was an inticate tool with use of small parts requiring good dexterity to work it. i ended up offering her my rcbs single stage with carbide 9mm dies enough cases and bullets and a bullet puller so the patients can work on building and pulling empty cases.

i thought it was a fantastic idea.

Send primers and powder and have them load a basic practice type round. Great fund raiser for the facility.

Good for you Jon, that's very generous.

We do a lot of nontraditional therapy. So anytime I can make a positive difference by expanding the good things firearms can do I jump in it.

Our administrator is very pro-gun and she is a competitive shooter. Can't possibly see her turning this idea of the therapist's down.
