    I got a whiff of two things today that make me smile.
    One for many years-the smell of fired shotgun shell hulls.
    The other is a newer smell.
    Walking in the garage and smelling melting lead in the production pot.

    I probably shouldn't have eaten paint chips as a kid.

    No, but you should look out for Stomachaches, cramping, constipation, or diarrhea,
    Nausea, vomiting, Persistent, unexplained fatigue, Headaches, and Muscle weakness.

    Eating a little mercury will cure the lead-smell craving.

    The first one just makes you normal, not freaky! Not sure about the second one though...I don't even know what that smells like:embarassed:.

    My wife prefers the smell of Hoppes #9, the gunner's cologne.

    No, I think if you were to pour out a couple thousand just tumbled .45 casings out onto your workbench and roll around in them only wearing your Superman underoos you might be considered freaky. :whistling:

    I can relate to the smell of fired shotgun shells. Reminds me of a nice cool fall day of upland bird hunting. The lead pot is gonna kill you.

    Melting lead stinks. I find the need to wash away its smell with some barley and hops.

    I love the smell of fired 22lr, shotgun shells, and 45lc casings that were loaded with Unique.

    Has anyone seen the government used brass sales where you can get dumptruck loads of 9mm, 223, or 50cal casings. I thought of getting a few truck loads and making a giant jump-house/ball pit (like they have for kids at indoor playgrounds) but with shell casings (for men to use).

    I love the smell of fired .357 magnims with w296 or h110, I actually wiff the cases before I put them in the holder for the box. Or when you cut the grass and hit a spot of mint. YUM.
