    It's gone!

    I looked all over the house, my shed, range bags duffle bags, the back of my car, storage boxes, and everywhere else I could think of, and
    can't find them.

    I wanted to change the back strap of my Gen 4 model 19 to the smaller beavertail, hoping it might help with my "low and left" problem. After I see where the first round goes I can compensate, but I like to aim instead of Kentucky windage...... Maybe the LGS where I bought it has one laying around.....

    I assume your talking about the back strap and not your memory
    I can't find a box with apr 50# of coated round balls in it.
    I know that as soon as I make more the box will turn up.

    You just misplaced a small item. Don't feel bad.

    Don't feel bad, it will turn up sometime shortly after you buy another, probably in a place you already looked.

    I lost a rifle barrel a couple years ago. I bought a used heavy stainless AR barrel relatively inexpensive at a show but when I finally got around to wanting to use it, I couldn't find it anywhere. It has to be in my house somewhere and I've tore the place apart from end to end. I just have to assume that a tiny wormhole opened us at some point and sucked it into an alternate universe or something.

    That's why they invented clappers for car keys.

    I have a good friend who ( with his Father ) owned a matching pair of early Colt 25 auto Vest Pockets. His father passed away from Alzhiemers about 10 years back - And he was unable to find his fathers Vest Pocket. He turned the house upside down for 3 or 4 years and just could not find it. One day he was going through a closet and pulled out his father's bed robe - He found the gun in the pocket of said robe. Years later I asked him if he would sell me one of the pair. It took him another three years to find it. I know exactly where it is - I think . . .

    I never lose anything I always put it in a place where it will be safe. now some things are safe for a month or two some longer. some are still in that safe place but not lost.

    What's worse is when you FIND something and you can't remember ever buying it or where it came from . .. .

    Well, if you get pulled through that worm hole maybe Claudia Black (AKA Ayren Sun) will be on the other end, that would be a treat
