    Hello, my name is...

    Hi All

    Long time lurker, (almost) first time poster.

    I picked up the reloading bug a couple of years back, right as the component shortage was kicking in. After chasing round the South Island to collect various powders at high prices and being essentially unable to source projectiles I've put my load development ambitions on hold.

    So a change of tack means I'll be spending less time on the range and more time in the hills (I need the exercise).

    Might see you out there sometime.

    Cheers
    Nigel

    Welcome aboard
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Me too need exercise, have lost lot of muscles. Two years ago I was confident to finish a 20km hike in half day, ascent & descent 800m with gears.
    earlier this year I found some solid tree logs, hardwoods in my place, diameters up to 25 cm. Since it was free then I want to use them for firewood or build a cat house. Simply work, cut them into size by axe and upload to my trunk and roof top of car, unload it, carry it to my home one by one. I did `t feel much in that day, but the next day.....I felt pains from every muscles i have used for this work, and hungry, just like my usual heavy duty workout day in gym before.
    muscle memory is there, same as trigger practice. I will gone for gym soon. How many pull up can you guys still can make? I think I can do one
    Always short of one more good fishing & hunting friend.
