Don't Know How Good We Got It!
You could say that again!!
Geeee, I was having nightmares just reading your post. No, I am not giving up my Lee Classic Turret or RCBS Rockchucker. The first thing that hit me was wondering how much a keg of black powder ran in those days (1892) and visons of little houses out back with half moons on the door. (LOL) And merchants that lived over their dry goods stores. And the reason little towns rolled up the streets at 5 pm was because Edison hadn't rolled out his electric wonder (the light bulb) or at least they didn't have them then in rural America. The Olds brothers were making horse less carages, but Heny Ford was still years away.
It's nice to reminisce about the good old days, but the good old days are today. (at least for me (LOL)).
Have fun and shoot straight and stay safe.
