    If you own the promelt then its your property. The idea that a family member won't give you back your property is rediculous at best. The law is only a phone call away.

    I always assumed that everyone sprayed their brass and walked away and gave it some time before sizing it. You made a good point that everyone should at least try. Myself I sometimes let the brass lay there for 3 or 4 hours with the lanolin mixture...

    If someone wants for example $50 for a pair of used grips then simply tell me $50 and I'll buy them. If they tell me $100 then I know what they want and I'll simply tell them its above my budget for this month and keep on looking.

    Got a Desert Eagle with scope, Ruger Super Redhawk, S&W 629-6, S&W 629-3. Saw this 629-3 with unfluted cylinder and it was love at first sight. The wife a gun lover also understood after she saw it. I am lucky.
