I should hide under my bed, right?

edit: I'm beat right now after loading 150 45ACP.
I'm suddenly seeing the advantage of a progressive.

Good hunting. El Bee

Only if you don't trust your mailman, who is a government employee that knows (and reports) the type of 'gun culture' oriented mail, magazines, and packages that you receive and if the people that send you stuff are on any right wing watch lists. The government can't be too careful these days in their efforts to protect the people. All for your own good, you understand. [Eek!]

Yes! Understood. I have always wondered about exactly what the mail carrier thinks, in a cumulative sense: catalogs, magazines, obscure political donations, etc. They must think, will I get shot one of these days?

edit: and another thing. Tillie doesn't understand that when she barks, people interpret that as a form of aggression and she thinks it's as naturally friendly as wagging her tail; which she does at the same time.

I was all set to load some 9mm XTP's when it dawned on me that I don't have 9mm dies! WTF?

I'm going to make the rounds and see if I can find tungsten carbide dies at the various stores around town.

I need to check if I have a suitable powder, also!

Good hunting. El Bee

edit: turns out Longshot is very suitable! At 6 grains maximum, looks like one pound can load 1,166 rounds!

edit: Last night I was browsing the Natchez catalog looking at various shit. One thing I looked at was dies for pistol. But I also noticed all the super "precision" with dialed in increments in thousands! I'm sorry but this custom die shit is getting out of hand! If I want accuracy, I don't give a shit about seating a bullet to the fourth decimal point! Is there something better than my Wilson hand dies? I fucking doubt it!

Maybe you weren’t kidding about keeping an eye on my mail box!

When I looked, I had been so engrossed in working 9mm brass that I didn’t notice the mail lady but there was a package balanced on top of my standard domed mail box and it was teetering. Of course, I got there before it fell, but usually they walk up to the door with something that won’t fit inside the box.

Thank you ko ko, I will repay your thoughtfulness.

Good hunting. El Bee 🐝

PS Tillie can’t read!

Well, you'll just have to read it to her.
The author's no Micky Spillane but it's still a pretty good read.

You know, I have read every Tony Hillerman novel, and I have read the first 4 Anne Hillerman novels.

I'm also reading a series by Elizabeth Peters, I think there are 23, I have them all by I haven't read the last four yet. This is about ancient Egyptian Archeology in and around the turn of the 20th century, contemporary with Harold Carter who discovered King Tut.

My library pretty much consists of an entire bookcase of archery books, mostly 'traditional' and the last several on 'Kyudo' the Japanese style of shooting. Heavy on the mental aspects of the shot.
Then another bookcase filled with coyote calling books and trapping books.
And another bookcase full of foraging, survival, knotting & splicing, map reading and a bunch of other good stuff that is being forgotten by today's new age hunter.
The author of the book that I sent you is a local guy that can walk the walk and talk the talk.

Okay, I will work him into the lineup, probably right after the Egypt mystery. I am half way through it; Lord of the Silent. Published after her death from a bunch of manuscripts. I'm already completely into Egyptology and this angle of late 19th century, sort of Victorian England, (to me) adds interest. Imagine dressing in black tie evening kit, just for dinner. Amazing, how they made due without the iphone....or computer. For a certain ignorant segment of society, that is incomprehensible, of course. They wrote correspondence and utilized the telegraph; imagine that! How quaint! Anyway, I guess my reservations regarding our "millennium" voting segment is apparent. Can anything stop Leftists from destroying this country? Not when they are grooming the little darlings in pre-school!
