    I've done this, kinda fun to get a package and not know what it is, kinda like my birthday. Just kidding. Sorta.

    Wow, you like to be really stimulated. Don't slip up and confuse your cocaine and your powder.
    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

    An easy "no" for me... I like to dedicate my full concentration when getting plastered.

    Was at the Texas City Municipal Shooting Range years ago when a guy blew the slide of his Ruger P91 .40SW due to a double load. Messed up his face and required a trip to the
    emergency room. He was lucky.

    He admitted later "Boy, I'll never drink and reload again".

    words to reload by.................

    Same here. I find distractions make me immediately stop loading though. Too easy to get out of step with loading if something is distracting me.

    I'm glad you mentioned this. You'd think that this would be self evident, but I can picture someone loading a batch of .45s and getting a nic attack, and just lighting up right there at his loading bench. I certainly wouldn't want to be near him when it happens!
