    I just need to talk:

    I've been dating a woman named .223. But she's become increasingly difficult to please and high maintenance. Her appetites have become expensive. Dinners out used to cost $129/1000. Now they're $400/1000. I just don't know how to please her anymore.

    I'm.....going to break up with her for my new love 5.45x39 (*sniff*). There, I've said it.

    Well, 5.45's not as elegant as my last girlfriend, who clothed herself with fancy brass and came from the right side of the tracks (Lake City). But she wears a more utilitarian steely outfit and it works for her. And yes....she's a native of another country, but isn't this, in a sense, what America is all about?

    Anyway its what's inside that counts, and she's just as beautiful on the inside - delivering 52 grains of unconditional berdan primed love everytime we are together, and who's to say it matters if you have to wash a bit more after such sweet passion?

    Well, this is a big step for me. .223 hasn't changed, I still like her. But I LOVE my money, and .223 you're just gonna have to find a new sugar-daddy.

    Am I doing the right thing?

    Yes, and find a new love in 30-06 or 308. Better measurements and more versatile. Sometimes high maintenance is way worth it.

    I think there is a good chance 5.45x39 won't be such a cheap date for long. She may soon expect you to feed her at expensive domestic restaurants, because the cheap ethnic restaurants may go out of business.

    Well...

    There is durable old broad I know, 30-30.

    She can do just about anything I set her to. Pleasing to the eye, a little rough around the edges. ( I like em like that) Cheap to feed too. Doesn't need glasses either.

    She's got sister...

    I could put in a good word for ya. :D

    No, you're not. It's called an affair; it's a temporary affliction and you'll come back, licking your wounds and begging your first love for forgiveness-and your unfaithfulness will not be rewarded by the killing of a fatted calf. There's a big difference between a prodigal son and an adulterer. Shame on you! :evil:

    I don't think there's such a thing as a cheap date, but your .223 fling has more of a future than your new "love." Its at least possible to find food for your .223, I'm not sure you'll be able to feed your new girlfriend for long (importation bans and the like). You may have to take her back to Russia.

    .22LR is the only woman I can afford these days.

    You could do like me and get a threeway with .223 and .308.

    Between the fact that there's cheap Russian food to feed both of them, and I'm getting an oven to cook up my own, I get double the pleasure.

    I have to admit, neither of them know about my thing with .22LR. But she's a cheap date, and you can go for hours with her.

    Freud would have a field day. Good Post! Don't forget the 5.45 is younger by about 20 years, this matters. When it gets to be about 40 it will get more expensive and less frequent, LOL. Bill

    like others have said, that old lady named .22lr is nice, easy on the eyes, ears, and shoulder, and with with the cost of dates with her, its almost like you're going dutch, but you could also go american, romanian, czech, russian, as long as she gets fed, she'll dress however you like.

    Dear Confused :

    Why dont you 2 try cooking at home, instead of eating out all the time? Here's some nice kitchen ware you can order offline:

    http://www.leeprecision.com/html/catalog/cleeloader.html

    Or , my personal favorite:

    http://www.rcbs.com/

    Oh, here's a couple of nice markets that you can buy all her favorite foods from :

    http://www.midwayusa.com/

    http://wideners.com/index.cfm

    Need recipes, and helpfull cooking tips? Dont hesitate to ask. Thats what we're here for.

    And you know what? Her eating home cooked meals will slim her down (groups).

    Listen, we all know that eating out all the time can put a real strain on the wallet, and thats something you certainly dont need in todays economy. Money worries can put a strain on a relationship. That being said, with a little bit of work, you two can save this relationship.

    Start with the following : Start eating at home. Start cooking large meals.

    PS : Dont fall for the charms of that cheap Russian fluzzie. She can be downright corrosive.

    or, you could just get it at home (reload). Price is the same no matter the packaging.

    bullets is bullets, primers is primers, powder is powder.

    Sadly, your new love is on a temporary work visa and it's likely that in the next year or so will be refused reentry into the US. Enjoy your torrid affair while you can, because this is a relationship that is not destined to last.

    And, when your done chasing cheap dates, your old flame 223 will still be here. I'll keep her company for you while you're ignoring her. :evil:
