I've certainly retrieved many primers I've dropped on the floor, but if I can't see it, using a flashlite, from my chair, it stays on the floor until I stumble into it a day or three later.
We might should start a 12- step support program for all of us!
you got me rolling on the ground laughing... because I did the same!
Yep, remember when “stash” meant what a doper had squirreled away somewhere? I’m glad I had a pretty good “stash” of primers “squirreled away” when this thing started.
I’d still look pretty hard for a dropped primer though. “Waste not, want not” is what I always tell myself when I'm looking for something I've dropped.
Cue me on my knees with a flashlight and tweezers sorting through them the first and only time this happened.
Not worth removing the seating die and installing the de- capper when I have bricks of primers.
I would have been hunting for it even without the shortage. Years back before we moved to the sticks we had a city condo. I reloaded in the living room mostly - mostly cause there was only the bedroom, bathroom or kitchen as alternatives. One time my wife vacuumed up a primer and it popped. Scared the krap out of her and she promised me what would happen if I ever lost another primer where she might vacuum it up. It’s not pleasant so I make sure it doesn’t ever happen again.
But some of us could......
I threw a perfectly good small primer in the trash the other day because I couldn’t ID what type it was.
It’s still bothering me
Its good when a woman finds it with a vacuum and you know its there
It’s not a problem till you find yourself stuffing a piece of kitty litter in the primer pocket and hitting it with a lighter.
