Please, post only true things that have happened to you. Here is mine, happened last night:
I received my order of ammo yesterday and when I got home I opened up the box that had the loose .223 in it. I guess I missed it on the description page but it came with stripper clips and stripper clip holders (green thing with 5 pouches per). If it was thrown in for free then it made me very happy.
Anyway, I didn't like the ammo just "rolling" about so I got a beer, lit a cigg, and started to thread ammo into the clips.
I finished about 45 minutes later (750 rounds so had 75 stripper clips to load) and got a call from a "semi" friend that is local (semi-friend means that he is on probation before I invite him into my "friend" circle).
We got to talking about this and that and I mentioned that my hand was still abet sore (from reaching in and getting the pointie end of the cartriage instead of the base). He asked why and I said, "Well, I just loaded 750 rounds of .223 onto stripper clips, you know how that is".
There was a phase and then he said, "No, not really, I've never loaded stripper clips before".
And there I sat, innocently thinking that loading stripper clips was something that everyone does or has done . You know, normal everyday type activity.
It seems like a normal activity to me.
Just another day for me, except im a 7.62x39 guy.

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

Yeah, Miggy, it's here:
Here's mine. You fire a pistol with a rifle caliber (T/C in 45-70), the pistol has a small gap between the frame and grip inserts which causes your hand to bleed, and you still come out smiling.
Not as good as yours, Wayne, but it's what comes to mind.
