    Feeling a lot better this evening. Went down to the reloading room and resized and deprimed 448 .45Colt cases. Took about an hour and a half. My right shoulder is a bit sore from where I fell on it. No need for any Advil...just minor discomfort.

    I hear what you are saying... I would have one but my wife would freak out if I brought another puppy home.

    Hi... It's been a bit of a rough week for me so far. Sunday evening I tripped over my black Lab and fell pretty hard. Took about a day and a half to start to feel better. Then last night I tripped over my yellow Lab. Not good! Stiff and sore...

    Hi... Look for a used Virginian Dragoon. Well made, accurate, durable and able to handle any reasonable handload.

    Hi... I have had a 3" stainless .44Spl Taurus for many years. It is a fine revolver, accurate and reliable. I also owned a blued .357Mag that I traded off. It was horribly inaccurate and spit lead. Only had it a few weeks. So...50/50 on Taurus...

    Thanks for the concern and interest, gentleman. Not very happy about the expense myself but it was a necessary expense. One never realizes how attached we get to luxuries like running water until you don't have it.
