    You seem to scrounge some cool items.

    Lord, make me fast and accurate, let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who seek to destroy me, grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine, let not my last thought be - 'If I only had my gun'- and Lord if today is truly the day you call me home, let me die in a pile of warm brass,
    Amen

    Casting is fun and relaxing (unless you get a visit from the tinsel fairy) I cast my own for 45-70, 44 Mag, 35 Remington, 45ACP, 9mm, 380, 40, and shotguns
    I just had all of my lead alloy weighed and it came out to just over 2000lbs... not including the hundreds of lbs of lead bullets I already have cast.

    I have always cast outdoors, Now I am living in Oregon and it has been raining non stop since I got here 2 months ago. Looks like I will need to open the garage door and turn on a fan pointing outward.
