So he isn't stuck under something heavy and he isn't dead. That is the good news. Sadly, all you other jokers just aren't interesting enough for him to log on an post when he is high on pain killers. Somebody needs to come up with some interesting questions that include obscure "old timer" data that only he and perhaps Whisky and Bob even care about. Then maybe he will come back and post something interesting. So just to repeat, not dead, not fallen can't get up, not stuck under something heavy but taking heavy drugs and a little bored.

Jack, if you could only have one mold - either the H&G 130 or the H&G 68, which would you choose and why?



Is the new Unique really better than the old Unique? If there are two, how can they be unique?



Why is it when I'm in Italy nobody is in a hurry to do anything but drive and cheat on their spouse?

Jack, what is your secret for squeaky clean primer pockets?

Do you have a different strategy for small primer pockets vs. large primer pockets?

Zombie Steve

Jack, I'm confused. I want to crank out ammo so fast that money is no object. I find the tedious steps involved to really cut into my video game time. I have no idea how to approach load development, but getting all the right gear will really only cost me a few thousand. The idea of just buying factory ammo isn't an alternative. I need to shoot more... fast! Will you come over and set up my dies and tell me what the powder charge should be?

It's not polite to make an old guy with broken bones laugh, or move around, or have to go potty, reach for the remote, reach for the scotch to wash down morphine, dilauded, vicodin, etc., have your shooting buddy call and say, "The State Black Powder Championship is this weekend, you gonna be well enough to shoot it?"... or even breath.

All of your posts are very entertaining to say the least and very much appreciated, except for those posted by Zombie... they are actual questions he has that he has no idea how to answer.

Slowly getting better, at least the pain no longer makes me scream when I move... Dawg was getting tired of the noise waking her up. Worthless mutt.

This little mishap shall heal as have all the other ones but I'm really starting to get tired of going through it. Good thing I was born looking like Tom Selleck 'cause I could be the poster boy for Murphy's Law.

Ya'll take care and don't blow up anything or anyone.

No, it was my father's. Everything in our house when I was growing up came from "good enough" GE. He was an engineer for them. He fixed stuff, anything really, in the field. Paper mills, seaport cranes, power plants, turbines, there was nothing he couldn't fix as long as he had an expense account. I might have a box of 1972 dayplanners around here somewhere:supergrin:

It is an unfortunate truth about life. We all die at least once. If we are lucky, we will have had a very good run, lots of fun, lots of love, and many more good days than bad days in that time. When our time comes to an end, if we are aware of the end coming, the best I can think to hope for is to exit with as much style and class as we can muster.

I didn't figure that out on my own. I learned that from men and women with true strength of character.
