Wonder how many of these ammo hoarders still have 22 lr the bought in 2008-2009?   Probably a lot stored with several hundred rolls of toilet paper.

Would not think I'd qualify as a hoarder, but I do have a brick of Wildcat 22 LR that is at least 20 years old , probably older :-\
Course when the 22 shortage ended, a year or so ago.... I bought CCI Clean-22 High Velocity , Standard Velocity, Aguila Extra
and CCI 22 shorts stocking up.... but I won't sell it , just wanted to not sweat the next big shortage.

In other news ,( I had not mention not to dash my luck  ) the shoe box of primers ( estate sale ) was not to be.
There this lady (widow) who is selling her late husbands guns, some very nice guns indeed
3 Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk Bisley Single Action revolvers ( two with True Ivory grips )
A 458 Winchester and a 308 on Mauser actions with scopes
A Shiloh Sharps in 45 -110  with Tang sight ( $3000 ) still available BTW ( no dog in the fight )

and a shoe box of primers ( unknown quantity) , a Dillon 550 , a Rock Crusher , Misc. Brass in 458win & 308 + 44 mag. brass 
which she had later decided to sell as a LOT .

I wanted the primers,  but they went with the LOT above.... @ $2000 - 2500  :-\
I did not get the opportunity to view or bid....though I was interested in the primers , but it was not to be  :(

I'm talking about the ones that buy everything in site that they really don't need because it's scarce.  What I've been hearing from gun shows I'm surprised some dare to take a piss for fear of being beat for scalping.

Morning y'all.
Coffee and tea are hot.

First full sunny day in a while here.
Seen a few Robins, however the starlings are still in swarms here in the morning. The cats and our big dog run them off in the morning. Sending them to Slim.


Thanks for the coffee - glad all made it thru the big freeze
Don't need starlings, yet or ever.

Not going to pay $.06/primer. Not that hard up, yet.  ::)
But did pick up another Colt Police Positive. This one in .32-20.

'Tis 17 and overcast. "Cloudy with snow showers this morning and steady snow likely this afternoon. High 31F. Winds SE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow 90%. 1 to 3 inches of snow expected."

32℉ with wet, heavy snow. Expect up to 8" by the end today.

Bacon and slabs of fried banana bread, with coffee, for breakfast.

All the tree limbs and telephone lines decorated with a snow frosting.
Wife & I scheduled for first vaccine shot Tuesday, with second just before my leaving for the 2021 NCOWS Congress and Convention in latter March.

Morning all.

30 degrees as of 10am. We’re looking at more snow later on.

Plans so far are to take the dog out, vacuum the house, and then be lazy.

Stopped snowing here and is melting some, 35F.

Corned beef, taters and cabbage for supper, Cosco had some good looking ones at a good price Friday, second one sometime as Rueben's.   
Bubble and squeak tomorrow, maybe some to freeze.

The new-to-me pistol is shooting left. I found the barrel is slightly turned to the right.

Morning all.

Currently 13 with 3 fresh inches of white. Not sure where it came from, as it was 40 degrees when I went to bed.

On the docket at work today, I have poop to pump, per usual.  ::)
