    What's wrong with this picture?

    My brother just turned 30 on the 19th, and a bunch of in-laws dished in to buy him a S&W 29-2. (Lucky dog! )

    So what does he do? He finds a mismatched box of strange reloads. As much as I love my brother and know he's a smart gun guy, sometimes he makes some bad decisions. If he's short on cash, all he had to do was call up his little sister and say he got this cool gun for his birthday but *cough cough hint hint* no ammo.

    Extremely bad form to give a firearm gift and no ammo to go with it. When we got capguns and bb guns for christmas we always got ammo. Heck thats like buying a battery operated gift and forgetting to get bateries for it. LOL!

    I remember being given battery operated gifts with no batteries. BIG letdown. If he wants to run with the big dawgs, he's gotta be able to feed em now

    That is why I do my priming separate, and double check each one....
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    Gave my daughter a SW 649 and 1,000 rounds to practice with for her 21's birthday. that was 4 years ago. She shot so much she bought a Dillon to reload her MT's and I got to teach her that too.

    had a few primers in backwards myself. Always caught em on the wipe down/case gauge stage of reloading though. Sure like my Dillon for reloading too.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh <laughing here> I've been guilty of the "primo rerverso" trick when I reload. It happens to the best of us.
