    The new old, guy on the block

    Hi guys just wanted to introduce myself. I finally signed up for cast boolits after all this time. So Iím the new old guy on the block, I love to shoot and reload and make some things along the way. Now my gun forum is good but no one really gets into reloading on that site, now thankfully for this site a few years back I built my pid controller. Works great with my lead pot and also use it in the heated base for my star press. Did build a bullet feeder for the star that feeds nose down that I will put up soon.

    Welcome.
    You are at one of the few old folks homes in America that allows guns and the discussion of guns. The geriatric shooting range of cyberspace.

    Yeah, I am not that far away. I used to when I was younger shoot up at Twin S gun club which was close to you. It was a great range.

    Welcome to Harry and Rick - pull up a chair and enjoy the knowledge base, let's help each other enjoy our hobby. And when the time comes beware the PIT - where opinions run free and sometimes so do emotions.

    Thanks guys for the warm welcome, the older I get the more I want to know! It’ll take sometime to get to know folks here. I did put up my first post in The Star Equipment Corner about the bullet feeder I made. Just trying to pass on some info if anyone is interested. Hope to get to know you all.
