Thread: Any New Year Resolutions/goals?

  1. #1

    Any New Year Resolutions/goals?

    I have two, one is to get in better shape (realistic goal) and the other is to load up every piece of brass I own (yeah right!). They are pretty cliché, but I’d like to accomplish both.

    I might stick to my normal, which is, to be fatter, lazier and harder to be around!

    Yours?

    I want to play with some alloys and work on pouring some hunting bullets. Also want to develop a good subsonic 300 blk load for my ar. And get a few car projects finished. But my big plan is to buy some property in Montana so I can get out of western Washington! We'll see how it all plays out...

    Many years ago, I resolved to quit making resolutions.
    I've been successful!

    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
    But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,

    To buy and pay for a new chevy duramax LTZ or high country truck. My daily driver is a 79 chevy C20 pickup and my other one mainly gets used to go to the range or run around town....an 88 Chevy K5 Blazer.

    So far, I have around $32,000 set aside as a down payment but with the prevailing job I will start next week may be able to stay busy through June and possibly pay cash for the truck. With neck and back problems, the need to tow my toy hauler camping trailer and the need for better fuel mileage, combined with how far trucks have come, it is a great time to buy a new truck to last me another 10-20 years or more.

    Me to! I try to do what I need to do and what is right and I found that most resolutions are short lived. I've made them about most of the normal stuff like loose weight, work out more, shoot more, ect.

    I got up this morning to a new day, new month, new year, new decade. Then I looked out the window and it looks just like yesterday. Maybe I'll make a resolution to not look out the window?

    My resolution is to not spend as much money on guns and gun related accessories.
    Due to the price of primers, warning shots will no longer be given!

    I’d like to start out by killing a deer. As soon as I finish this granola bar and my second cup of coffee I’ll go look. I resolve to try to be pleasant to all as I continue the allotted time I’ve been given in this life. God Bless you All- Cheers to 20/20!

    Lose most of my extra weight and get in shape for a long distance hike I’ve been wanting to do for years.

    Reduce the amount of clutter in the basement and garage by 10%.

    First thing is to move my rifle and pistol reloading setup from the outdoor shop to my basement. It is getting too costly to heat the shop and it will be nice to be able to walk to the basement to load a few hundred rounds instead of bundling up and walking 50 yards.

    Then, in the spring, extend my outdoor range to 200 yards. I have 65 yards of bush to clear to get that done.

    Exercise more. Probably in the form of walking.
    Play more golf. Last two years have been a drought.
