Dennis that press should serve you well. Not sure which one your friend had that you used but I believe they make two different kit's. One with the safety prime ( on press primer ) and one with the hand prime. I prefer the safety prime but I am loading on a classic turret.
I see you are located in my old stomping grounds, I grew up in Hayward. Moved out in 1996.
I don't ever remember being absent minded.
