a Kingly gift
So, please excuse my obvious LOTR reference, but when it is revealed that Bilbo Baggins was given a Mithril shirt while on his origininal expedition as cataloged in The Hobbit, it was said that he was given a Kingly gift.
Well, considering the current cost of Ammo and the difficulty man people are having coming up with in their areas, I was given a truely kingly gift.
Last week, a good friend of mine gave me about 850 rounds of once fired 9mm brass. A truly kingly gift. In addition to that, I spent about 3 hours with him learning the fine art of reloading.
That being said, I'm now weighed down with a whole bunch more ammo than I was a week ago. More importantly, I have learned a very necessary skill which will remain useful for a lifetime.
I got the LOTR reference, and IMO their adventure would have gone much smoother if they would of had CCWs with them. I think the dwarves would have gone with Glocks, wizards with 1911's and hobbits seem like revolver guys to me... ANYWAY, good deal on the brass. :smile:
Have you shot any of your reloads yet? How'd they do?
A kingly gift indeed! Unless this ammunition supply situation improves soon then all of us may be into reloading sooner than we think.:zeit:
nice gift my buddy gave me about 20 lbs of spent brass 45, 9mm 40 and some 38 spec and of cource any time i go to my dads house to shoot out back i am always crawling around on the ground looking for my spent casings on the ground
I could see Samwise Gamgee with a Ruger Super Redhawk .454... would work wonders against the Orcs in Mordor...
