    So Fla-- NO place to Shoot AKA "TFF" Posting Clo
    I Love this forum Because
    Today I took a run down to Pro Bass Shops with my Plinker (Model 60 Marlin)
    & my 30-30 to Relax & pop off a few rounds.
    ( I allways feel better after Shooting & well :D ) LOL

    So I set my target load up & "NUTT'IN" I was like W T F ??????

    Well I had torn it down a month or so ago after the last time there,
    & had thought I was "Right"

    Well I OOOOOPPPPPPP"SSSS But I remembered talking to my Newest Best buddy Terry "Fuzebox" & he told me if you have any problems to look him up!

    Well today I shot him a PM & LOL
    Since I'm a one finger typer I asked if he could call Me.

    This man sat on the phone with me better than an hour. :eek:
    LOL & I'm just a F.N.G. (Freaking New Guy)
    (NO one I know Now-a-days) woulda went THIS far!

    HE Took out His model 60 & tore it down just so he could see what I was asking!

    I thought a little bar in there broke
    (I could see next to the hammer a piece that just diden't look right)

    Well with his HELP we figured out the Problem!

    Everything I did was right in my break down (EXCEPT)
    the little Spring I never saw fall out :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

    He even helped me find the part @ Numrich (I just ordered it)

    TERRY your the MAN!!!!:bow::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow::bow:

    Good bunch on here. Some forums, half the people think they are experts, act like wise azz, and give their site a bad name; luckily not here and I thank everybody who has helped me in the past too.

    It took me forever to convince my wife to let me get a big screen (only 50 inches). Once we got it, she decided we need to update the play room in the basement so the kids (now at college) will want to bring their friends over occasionally. So, we bought a new couch, TV stand (for the DVD, TIVo, and game boxes), and new LCD TV.

    This has been almost a year ago. The kids use it occasionally when they come for a visit and we use it to watch movies every now and then.

    She would've shot me if I brought home a new TV without asking and getting her approval!

    Now she's talking about replacing the furniture in the living room...:eek:

    Geds,
    The Fact that I have not had a "Real" job in over 3 years is what kills me.
    I made a good living as a Captain of several motor Yachts over my career.
    Now I'm reduced to being called by 2 differant boat yards when there affrade
    of an "OOOPPPPSSS".. It can cost 20K or MORE just by bumping a piling.
    I guess I should be happy they call me they pay Very good & most times I'm outta there in 1-2 hours & payed 4 the hole day.
    BUT there paying for the Expertice (I have 40 + years @ the Helm)
    And the fact that I rairly have any problems.
    They put 2 or 3 guys aboard with me there, There only to cast me off & Tie me up when set in new slip.

    So with that in mind spending 4-5K @ this point in time,
    (I think is just DUM)

    I am now Disabled / Retired
    (Back & knees are shot from 40 years of Pounding over ruff seas)
    My Goverment check bearly covers the Morage.
    I'm realy scared of the times this country is seeing And
    (I'm SURE I'm not the ONLY one that feels this way!)

    Everyone here is super helpful which is great.
    I am sure I will have a lot of questions when I start getting into reloading.

    I don't think I've helped here more than a couple times. But I've learned a lot!
    I'd like to be able to contribute more, but I'm just not as firearm savvy as most here.

    Thanks to all of you for the info, advice, sharing, and friendship.

    Means a lot to me.:cool:
