e-mail from Marty Ter Weeme
« on: February 24, 2011, 09:15:50 AM »
"Got your little black sunshine sitting next to me. I will be overseas again early March so when I get back I will send sunshine your way"

My reply: "Gah! I'll send you the $500 now! I'm putting it in the mail today. Take some pics and post it on ARF.com and lemme know which subform. Again, my check is going in the mail today!!!"

So basically my chronograph (was going to order it this morning) and reloading press are put on hold until I get my year end bonus which should be paying out on March 4th. I was planning on getting Marty's check out then but I didn't realize he was taking another trip. And he's usually gone for a couple of weeks at a time.

I don't want to wait anymore!!!

Of course my ammo source for .44 AMP sold the 450 empty cases the week before I placed my order.  :bash So he currently can't make me any. I ordered 500 cases from Starline which will be here Friday but I have no reloading press.  :banghead But just to HAVE the upper in my possession will be good enough for now. I'm also sending the bolt and other guts to get Slipstreamed shortly after I receive it.

But it's almost here. The last few days are gonna seem like years.

How do you think I feel???  :devillol

What's worse is that he doesn't check his e-mails every day. So who knows when he'll see my reply. I bet he gets my check first!  :facepalm

Ha! Like my dad. "Dad, did you get that email?"

"I don't know."

Pretty brutal wait for you now, though.

This is very simple - if it has to be TAKEN from someone else, to GIVE to you, it is not a right. To force another to work, so that you may reap the reward, is called slavery. All the other talk is just obfuscation.

In honor of this good news:



Iggy Pop has the voice of a god... and it's likely a mean god, having to do with warfare or vengeance.

Damn, anyone got a black Mustang and a zombie apocalypse to do a drive-by on?  That song lights a spark in my soul!

Current Mustangs have 412 horse. I'd like to get one but then I'd have to lower it to 400 somehow. ;)

But then again it wouldn't be the 2nd 'Stang dubbed Black Sunshine. Probably a hundred or so since La Sexorcisto came out.

HVS, were you the one that was forming .44 brass from .308 brass some time ago here?

I was thinking about it. And will be eventually. My 500 cases of Starline arrived today. Still don't have a press yet but I know someone that does. Might just get the loading plate, dies etc for his press, learn on his until I get mine.

And THEN I will start cutting down .308 brass. Because $3.04 per case is quite ridiculous.

LOL, No. And yes, for me "math hard".  :doh

It was $164+ tax for 500 cases. I divided 500 by 164.00 so yeah. Math was never my strong suit. LOL

But I'm still going to cut .308 eventually. I've a friend that has a bunch that was given to him and he in turn is giving it to me. Free brass is free brass. It's unfired too.

Suddenly I don't feel so bad about buying more .303 and possibly some 30-06...

Anytime someone mentions .303 it makes me want an Enfield.  :devillol
