    western Pa,
    About a week ago I knew I was going to a local gunshow. So had some free time thought I would look over the supplies. Good shape on everything but Large Pistol primers. Only had about 1500. Well why write it down I can remember one thing for a week. Sunday I go to the show, as usual prices are higher than the gun shops, but I think, why not just pick up the primers and save a trip to the gun store. So what did I do, bought a thousand large rifle primers. So now I am still low on large pistol primer, need to make a trip to the gun store anyway, and I now have 2500 large rifle primers. They will get used. But I sure did not need the extra 1000. Guess its time to start writing everything down.

    I'm "only" 45 and I do the same things. Kinda like the old wolf on the Bugs Bunny cartoons that had to stop and remember what he was chasing. I don't know if it is a sign of old age, or just too much crap on your mind, or maybe a combination of things; but don't feel like the lone ranger, mp.

  3. Welcome to codger country. It don't get better but on the bright side when you do a thorough clean up of all your goodies and find things you forgot you had from 12 years ago its like Christmas. :D

    western Pa,
    Yea I got one of those Christmas presents in the spring, I was cleaning out under the bench and found two plastic coffee cans one of 9MM and one 45Acp bullets I had cast some time or another and forgotten about them, I still can’t remember when I cast them. I wonder if I could tell the wife I have all these extra LR primers and need to buy a M1A to use them up be for they go bad.

    a short time back--it was between hot spells; there was a rainy period.
    being that i am an adventurous spirit (at least i think i remember being one)
    i picked a corner of my basement and began excavating. on day 3 i discovered floor.
    pondering if floor is all there is to life or to keep digging; the sun returned and
    i decided to risk getting some of said sunshine on my re-discovered k1911.

    we went to the range

    there are 3 more corners to my basement and i hope to dig them soon--soon as in before the floor section gets back filled.

    I need two types of primers, I reloaded some .40S&W today and looked to see what kind I needed. That was 4 hours ago and I do not remember what I need right now. That sure is a sign of CRS.

    I think it's a sign of age and too much to remember hand in hand!
    If I dont right it down, it's gone!
    For example, the electric meter reader stops by...I'm busy with a rifle I'm trying to get zeroed in. I'm haveing all sorts of un-due problems. He and I start start talking and we have a lengthy conversation (he told me his name) and before he went to pull out, I have to ask his name again...TOO much on my mind (I keep telling myself that anyways!) Could be age...probably, maybe...
