    After Five Years of Renting...I'm Pleased to Show...THE MAN CAVE!

    So we haven't been on here much lately due to: New kid, new house, new job etc. but I just had to share this moment.

    Lima and I have been apartment dwellers for the last 4-5 years and this is our first house, X2 Garages and a basement are very nice changes from apartment living.

    Lima and Speedloader are out of town visiting family in Wi so I've had a little spare time on my hands to work around the house. Yesterday I picked up a bench and cleaned up the basement a little, organizing most of the "gun stuff." For once almost all of our firearm related materials are in ONE SPOT!



    And as it happens, there is a Lee progressive in that white box on top of the bench.

    Nice! It looks like you have plenty of room to expand too.

    It's nice to have an area to bug out to, should it get hostile above ground.

    yep, that wall behind the bench is just a divider, the laundry area and spare sink/shower are on the other side.

    Hey ... the Lee Progressive Press is the crib. Firm grip ... tight crimp (no leaks) ... quiet operation (for nap-time) ... and even handles a "full bomb load."

    It slices! It dices! Ba-da-bing!

    You need to mount a hammock or get one on a stand. That way, there is always work to be done in the shop. Trust me on this one.

    Maybe even a comfy broken in couch and a TV...stocked with a DVD player and some shoot em up movies.

    You got a nice wall - hang a dart board!

    I wish I had a get-a-way space like that. It would be nice to have some room to set up a reloading bench.

    Tunes, check.

    TV, check.

    Gun stuff, check.

    Just 2 things missing, a recliner and a fridge!

    Definately some sort of seating for that TV and a fridge are missing from that picture, both things critical to having a successful basement.

    Congrats on the house, now take the Lee out of the box and get goin on it.
