    Teaching my 3 year old how to reload...we made some .44 mags for the Ruger Redhawk and the Marlin 1894.

    He had a blast and was very proud to be a, "Reloader Man".

    And here I thought my watching several episodes of Dirty Jobs was the best way to spend the evening.

    I was certainly mistaken! :D Good pics, looks like good times were had. He certainly appears to be a happy boy.

    Awesomely cute kid - this thread does a heart good. I too went and did something else - better than watching the train wreck unfold on tee-vee.

    Good job for getting that nice young man involved in 'rolling his own' ammo. With the way ammo prices have been going lately, reloading is certainly an art/science that SHOULD be learned by all.

    I spent election might by cleaning and lubeing everything in "Foggy's Artillery Locker".

    It always warms my heart to see a youngster that has been exposed to firearms outside of movies and videogames. Well done.

    Good job. I reloaded a few rounds myself. It just made me feel better somehow.

    One other thing, ECVMatt....


    You ARE teaching that young man how to make the raw materials for reloading, right? ? ? :D :evil: :p :D

    As in turning that nice freshly loaded ammo into empty brass again :D :p :D
