Yeah, already running into this bullshit AGAIN.
I actually live near where the (or a? Not sure) Goodyear blimp parks, so every once in a while I’ll be going somewhere on the highway and see it just tied down in a field. It’s weird seeing airships on the ground.
Another northeast Ohioan, right? I lived in the Akron area for three years before moving down to TX.
Small typo: “Mistern” in Heidi’s dialog
Not a typo.
Perhaps not, but there *is* one in panel 2 — “let’s” should be “lets”.
Grateful for yesterday’s strip, because I was wondering where the hell you were going with the Cheese Shop parody. Now all is clear.
Er. Panel 1, I mean.
Any one who didn’t stock up over the last four years is pathetic.
Didn’t get the end of the cheese shop–what did Rick Perry do?
I have often viewed Gov. Goodhair as little more than a self-entitled windbag who’s a puppet for special interests. Also, he’s fucking ridiculous about how much he likes to pray.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight because soooo many people have had lots and lots of extra cash lying around over the past four years to spend on overpriced crates of ammo the price of which is artificially inflated because of tools willing to rack up thousands in credit card debt in order to have 10,000 rounds of 5.56 and 9mm ready for the frikken ‘zombie apocalypse.’
Handloading is not only a relaxing, money saving hobby, it lets you tailor a load to a specific purpose.
Of course, I’m not only an engineer, I’m mildly OCD, so take that with a grain of salt.
Seconded, you don’t need a gigantic rig to do what you need either, it can be something to do while bored, listening to music, killing time, or if you want to experiment. Subsonic Mosin-Nagants? Sure! On the other hand… doing it for pistol calibers could get tedious without a progressive press.
Just so I’m clear, by “grain of salt,” did you mean 64.79891 milligrams of sodium chloride? Or did you have a different salt, different definition of grain, or both in mind?
I’m pretty sure all engineers are OCD. All the good ones, at least.
This rig is slow, but reloading while sitting on the couch watching TV is a plus. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/650614/lee-breech-lock-hand-press-kit
It’s also nice as a starter kit, you can be reloading your favorite caliber for $100 (plus materials).
Hey is Micks name a pun on Berdan primed brass?
Mick is one of two characters whose names are references to primers.
Alex I presume?
i too, am a reloader.
although i mainly do it to make stuff to feed the old russian when we go to the range (no magnetic ammo allowed)
just once, i would LOVE to find a box of 7.62x54r, on the shelf, that didn’t cost as much as match grade .308.
its getting ridiculous.
i also have my piles of .38 special i load so i can practice for cowboy action shooting, hope to get into a competition soon if time and money allow.
Yawn, I’ll just wait until the panic subsides and rational prices return, just like they did 4 years ago. What, you don’t remember? We were supposed to have lost our guns by now, according to some. But the reality is that even universal background checks, which the NRA supported back in 1999 (and which I support), are going to have a hard time getting passed, much less any actual bans.
I started reloading when -for example- small pistol primers were $6 a thousand, and no tax. It’s a great hobby, and very satisfying. (Note: music in the background, but not TV).
Now Primers are $43/1000, with 13% tax (Ontario), and it’s still a good hobby. I load for a couple of guys at the Club, as well as myself, and they help pay the freight. But price doesn’t matter if the shops are sold out. On the other hand, I get to experiment with powders I’ve never used before.
Anybody who insists on factory ammo is a prima donna.
My biggest pain in the ass, before this recent panic was realizing Federal had apparently discontinued their Nyclad .38 Special again, or they were only selling to LEO distributors in pallets so most retailers wouldn’t bother with it, or whatever, who knows the truth because I certainly don’t, which I fortunately stockpiled because it’s the self-defense round I’ve come to prefer for my old Colt Agent. And now this…poop…again. It got so bad awhile back I was looking for some more Hornady Critical Defense .45 that was out of stock at my local sporting shops, that when I came across a few leftover boxes of some store’s discounted…Zombie-Max…I felt a little dirty but it’s the same damn thing, the tips are just green instead of red. Don’t look at me, DON’T LOOK AT ME.
Never ration condoms. Also, get tested because they rubbers do not protect against the herpes. Listen to loveline if you think your life is shit listen to some other people’s lives that are real shit and feel better that you are not them. Seriously, their mom’s are actual crack whores and it gets a little dark but good.
