    Hi gooser and welcome. I'm new to this forum too, but have really enjoyed being here. Gonna stick around a while. You really gotta look into reloading for the handguns. Shooting them will move into a new dimension - you can shoot cheaper, with loads that are not readily available (or at all), in greater volume, and can tailor the load to the specific firearm. This makes sweet music at the range and can only enhance your experiences in shooting. I got married in 1970 and got my first press (RCBS JR) that same year. Liked both hobbies and am still busy with both. Had to buy cast boolits for the first 3 years, then bought a used Lyman pot, several molds and a sizer all in a package. Have been casting pistol boolits since then. In spite of all that time casting and shooting, this site ahs advanced my knowledge and skills a couple of notches above where I was even a year ago. A note of caution - beware of the Group Buys! A guy can go broke real fast by lusting over those offerings. Glad to have you here.

    Dave I can't seem to catch anybody up on the chat. I left it on almost all day and I heard nobody. I am doing something wrong, I am sure. Oh well that's me to a tee. I take my meds and I am in my own little world.

    Cool White tail

    Have been down to Stewart Is, at the bottom of N.Z. White tail deer were liberated by some forward thiking people probably 100 years ago. Any how it was blowing 50 knots+horizontal rain couldnot get inflatable ashore had to watch the little blighters eating seaweed on the shore.Is this normal for these fellows or is it a bad habit they have picked up overhere:
