    5000 rounds of CCI .22lr Mini-mags, less than a penny more per round than the last time's purchase before the "plandemic" .
    Not bad I thought.

    Bought a S&W 66-3 2.5” a couple of days ago.
    I asked the guy if he had the box and he said “No, but I’ll throw in an old box from a Model 10
    that I picked up at a yard sale”.
    Inside the box was the original receipt for the Model 10 dated 1963, price of $51.80, sold to a captain in the U.S. Army, Advisory Team 7, APO San Francisco. FB82BEF2-C2B3-472C-A18F-329443C61145.jpeg CA76301D-188D-48B9-A8E2-558D700DF67C.jpeg
    Also in the box was the application to the U.S. Embassy in Saigon Vietnam for a gun permit.
    There were also a couple of cleaning rods that came with the gun.
    I love that kind of stuff. Wish I had that Model 10.

    Eight 20-round boxes at $10.99 a box. Ordered last week, just arrived. These are short measuring 1.16" OAL.

    Curiously the NORMA is the shortest .45 HP I have yet seen. I measured in mm with veneer caliper then converted to inches. I think the camera flash had an effect to obscure the tip of the ball ammo (Cavalry) vs the three HPs because the ball was the longest. When I line them up, you can see tht the NORMA does not exceed the curve of the ball ammo bullet, but the Ammo Inc. and Sig Sauer do.

    Large rifle primers, $125 per 1k. A good deal in these parts. Also a pound of Varget $60, and Unique $50.

    I have bottles of powder with prices of $25 on them....doubt I will ever see that again.

    Yes, an owner's manual for an obselete S&W pistol. A whopping $6.99 with free shipping.

    You sound like you're my kind of optimist!

    Growing up I dreamed of owning a Colt AR15, but being too young and not having all that much money at one time, kept me from getting one. Of course this didn't stop me from going through every Army-Navy surplus store in looking for magazines, magazine pouches, cleaning kits, web gear; just about anything and everything AR15 related.

    So don't give up on your "hunt" for your new pistol and let us know when it does come in!

    Me too. Bought during covid. Lol. Wasnt that long ago. 39/1k was the most i ever paid for non-match primers. And ever will.

    My last Purchase was a winchester sxp pump 12. Was 199 after rebate...... no picture because it's an all black plastic abomination. Lol. Will likely still be taped up new in the box when my kids inherit it.

    I know people that are just refusing to pay current prices, to the point of saying I need to find a new hobby.....and that is just what "they" want.

    I wouldn't find a new hobby if shooting is the hobby. If reloading itself is where you find the enjoyment then disregard. But people paying 10x markup for powder and bullets and primers could just buy loaded 223/5.56/7mm/300/9mm etc etc cheaper. Just 4-5 years back ammo was abundant and cheap. I was buying cases of Rangers for 130 dollars (500rd) Cheap 9mm was well under 10 bucks/ 50 at Walmart. Cases of 250 rds 12 guage for 39.99 at sams.... etc etc

    For new shooters I apologize and hate it is what it is. But anyone who has been shooting more than 10 years, seen the cycles, and is caught without is just not getting much sympathy.

    My statement that I won't pay more is based on the fact that if I shoot 5x what I've shot in the past, I won't need to reload at all for 110 years. And I have enough supplies bought for normal prices to load 5x that much. Furthermore As rough and broke down as I feel at 40 I don't think I want to live 110 more years. Lol ....(dumb youth/ sports and misadventures...and too much hay/pines/tobacco/shoveling/wood splitting and gym time)

    I think it depends on your reasons for reloading:

    If you reload for calibers that are just not available "over the counter" and you want to shoot "those old guns" you have little choice.
    If you are looking for something very specific that is just not made....I had 9mm with very heavy bullets moving very slow, I found I could knock bowling pins off the table better with a specific loading....just a tick over the edge for the gun to cycle.

    To me it really depends on how I am feeling. In the "reloading after fusion" thread that is currently going after my surgery when I still could not shoot but could reload, I reloaded quite a bit. I am still shooting that up. It gave me the feeling of "doing something". (Yes I know it is "wrong") but I had people come out and shoot my reloads while I sat there and took notes from the chrono and recorded group sizes. Again it made me feel "engaged".

    No doubt. I despise reloading. Got into for my rare cartridges . (257 wby, 257 Roberts, 338-378, 10mm was rare then, etc). At one time I enjoyed it but that shop sailed rather quickly. Lol

    Either way. My newest purchase is a new 6 inch Anaconda now. May be pictures when it arrives. Likely be a while with the holidays impacting shipping

    Today I picked up a previously purchased 9mm Springfield Armory Garrison. While there I bought 2 boxes of .357mag ammo and a .45ACP Colt Gold Cup.

    I am waiting for a Springfield Armory 1911 Operator on the Firstline program to come in stock. Someone called Springfield, they say it is a 6 to 9 month wait. Sounds like a good time to order custom leather.

    In the meantime I ordered a Ruger Mark IV 22/45, LOK grips and hex screws, and 1000 rnds of ammo. I think my next purchases with be a threaded barrel upper and suppressor for the 22/45. Another 10 months wait or so. I guess I am gluten to wait...
