    ThomR replied to a thread Start my new job next week in Our Town
    Thanks everyone. It's warehouse/forklift work so it shouldn't be very physically demanding. On a side note I found a nice place to shoot out in the desert today.

    It's been a very long time since I last worked four 10 hour days. I've been doing five 8's for over ten years. It is going to be nice having three days off.

    My wife will be working on my off days. That's going to kind of suck, but it just means I'll have plenty of time to go shooting.

    My family used to always get together at my grandmothers. She started to get up in age and wasn't able to host thanksgiving dinner anymore. We started going to my mom's place, and did that for a few years. My wife and I just moved to Reno, and we...

    I'll be expecting a couple thousand rounds in the mail soon. I'll send you a five gallon bucket full of lead in return.

    The gun range that I go to here has concrete benches, some of which are not on the firing line. I'm going to go to the lumber store tomorrow and get 3 two foot sections of 2x6 or 2x8. I'll bolt the reloading press and powder measure to one section...

    I'm going to stop by harbor freight tomorrow and pick up a small grinder stand that will fit in the back of my Jeep. As long as I can mount my Lee single stage press and powder thrower I'll be able to reload. I'm probably going to do my reloading...

    I might end up taking my reloading setup to the gun range and reload there. Less chance of someone freaking out.

    Up until last week I lived four hours away from Columbia, Missouri. Midway was pretty fast about getting the items shipped. The problem came when it was shipped via UPS/USPS or FedEx/USPS.

    I can't park a trailer in the parking garage. I just wish I had a truck so I could mount the reloading press to the tailgate. If I manage to make this work out in the parking garage I'm probably going to buy an inexpensive progressive press. It...

    I'll talk to some of the people at the range next weekend. Maybe I could trade one of them some lead for the use of their shed.

    My wife and I recently relocated to Reno. We are staying in a rather small apartment and I honestly don't have anywhere to keep my reloading stuff. For now all of my reloading stuff is in the back of my SUV. We park our car in a 9 level parking...

    Try Ting.com. You only pay for what you use. They use Sprint for their CDMA coverage, and I believe T-Mobile for GSM. I checked the coverage map and you are good on both of them. The last time I checked the average monthly bill was like $20.

    I bought a trigger group for a pistol build I was putting together. It was longitudinal ground. For being as cheap as it was it sure was smooth.
