    Is it a scorpion? That'd be so cool.

    I already owned my own weight in 9mmx19 brass, and started to give it away :)

    (btw, my guess was 1500)

    Some months back i was perusing a used brass site and laughed right out loud. For 4600 bucks i think it was you could dispense with the formalities and just get a 55 gallon drum of 9mm brass shipped to you although some arrangements had to be made with a terminal. It worked out to about 4 cents a case i think.

    Needless to say..... my bucket list just got a little longer.

    Wednesday I contacted a certain firearms related company, and told them about the thread. I asked if they had any stickers for another giveaway, and they said "Yea! Sounds like fun, give us your address". So I smell another contest. :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Oh, I bet! If it's anything like 4 year old Twinkies from my father's tackle box that still taste like new, I'm definitely in.:thumbup:

    Cat found a scorpion in the kitchen last night, and alerted us. Just found this f****r in my shorts after it stung my leg.

    They are coming in because this is the hottest summer on record, and it hasn't rained in months. God I hate these things.

    I hate 8 legged creatures. 8 legs and claws and a stinger!? Flamethrower time! :evil:

    Well, aerosol spray and a lighter but to them it’s a flamethrower. ;)

    The yellow one, middle right, is hard to see in my photos. It’s a cool sticker from “We The People” Holsters.

    Looks like I have more decorations for my gunsmithing box. :)

    Thanks again, peeplwtchr :cool:

    If the average kernel of Varget weighs .02 grains, there would be around 350,000 kernels in a pound.

    But there would still be only 7,000 grains in that pound.:)
