WooHoo!,,, I smell a new firearm in my future.

You know those contest flyers you get in the mail,,,
The ones from a car dealership that have some scratch off's and a key to try?

Well, I scratched off the dots and just won $500.00,,,
I didn't believe it at first so I called the toll-free number and verified it.

Now I firmly believe that windfall money should be spent wisely,,,
I currently have all the rifles I want/need,,,
I really don't need a new handgun,,,
Ammo seems to be appropriate.

1,000 rounds of 9mm and .38 Special,,,
And 500 rounds of .357 & .44 Magnum should fix me up.

I'm like a little kid in a candy store.

Aarond

Congradulatons, but don't forget you will have to pay tax on your winnings.

Sounds like what you REALLY need is a reloading setup.

Reloading set-up?,,,

That isn't a bad idea at all,,,
Can I get set up for 4 cartridges for $500.00

I have the Lee Classic Reloaders for .38, .357 Mag, & .44 Mag,,,
Maybe it's time to learn to use them.

Thanks for the idea Brian.

Aarond

You can come really close to $500. Getting started on the Lee Loaders to familiarize yourself with the process before upgrading to a press system would be beneficial, IMO.

I recently put together an equipment list for my cousin that added to around $550. It included everything needed for 3 or 4 different cartridges. The press was a Lee Classic Turret (HIGHLY recommended). (No, don't have the list anymore. . Really should make one to keep)

Check the reloading forum. Many, many threads on beginning the journey.

My thoughts exactly! Congratulations.

Congratulations, Aarond. Remember me next time.

Too bad, but someone probably has one over on the reloading forum. I need to start my list, as I'll be ordering in the next 2-3 weeks.
