Why is it that some kind of apparatus for the cure of erectile dysfynction comes to mind when sensitive big guys talk about their advanced laser controlled electro/hydraulic reloading systems with pneumatic auto functions. Warp speed, Scotty!

I wish I had stayed with you and yours, Weatherby, but I did get some good practice in on a Trap field I had all to myself.

K-Law, the first 4-gun hydro Mec set up I ever saw belonged to All-American/Hall-of-Fame Skeet shooter Grey Silva. He was a diminutive man and almost 80 years old at the time -- not quite out of the Big Jim mould.

Grey was one of Skeet's true gentlemen and I consider myself fortunate to have known him. He was at the club shooting every day. One of the members fondly commented, "When does he find time to reload?" Perhaps Grey's hydro system made his high volume shooting possible.

I am just funning BigJim. If I start shooting much more I am going to wish I went with a Grabber lilke he suggested. For now, I want a handle like on the beer tap behind a nice bar.

I know you were Klawman ....

I'm just happy to be the "coolest grandpa around" for awhile ...at least when it comes to guns, reloading, and woodworking .../ of course with my wife feeding them and letting them do their laundry here ...she's probably cooler than I am ...but a guy can dream....

Hey BigJim. When you are in college getting Mom or GM to do the laundry is the best, but who says you can't do it? You might like prancing around in a laundry apron (that mean over your regular clothes; not by itself (disregarding boundaries of decency, those bleach stains can really hurt).

Zippy. What is more reasonable if the handle is attached to a beer keg under the loading bench.

I think the more wise thing to do would be to have KlawMan smack me when I blow a straight by missing an easy target...
