    Post Count. Finally earned me a boolit.

    I've been on this site 15 years now as of this past New Years Day.

    This is my 1000th post. It's been quiet an experience to say the least. I've learned a great deal, spent a whole lot of money (some may say that's backwards, spent a lot and haven't learned a thing), made some great friends and met several of them personally down through the years.

    I still remember the evening I created my account. I logged in, and then found the chatroom. The original site owner (Ken) welcomed me, the one and only (Thank God) Waksupi was there, and a few others who are still with us. Sadly, some have passed on.

    Keep up the good work friends. It's never dull or boring around here. There is always something new to be learned here.

    Congrats Murphy. Sometimes the posts just start accumulating when there are good topics.

    Congratulations! I've been a member since March, 2005 and am almost 2/3 of the way to a boolit. At the rate I post, I may not make it...

    I've been meaning to mention how much you post crazy stuff. May as well stick around, you fit right in.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    I'm not sure yet. Might be a mint, unmolested Triple Lock 'Target Version', might be a large flat rate box of Waksupi's lube grooves. I'll keep you updated.

    While I can chat it up with the best, and most would say it took Murphy how many years to reach a 1000 posts? You don't know him in real life do ya'?

    Only 246 posts after a little over 13 years. At 72 years of age, might not be any bullets in my future!
