    I was at the Depot today with the tragically named Cinnamon buying a new gerage door opener. The Whorehouse is right next door so we moseyed on over to get a new leash and poke around (Sportsmans Wearhouse). Cinnamon makes a bee-line for the gun counter and they are ready with a jerky treat. We pursue the clearance section of the cammo dept, grab a leash and look over the reloading stuff. And then it happens......... I don't need anymore primers, powder or bullets but after the famine of last 8 years I can't resist! 1000 large pistol primers and a 250 round box of Berrys Bullets .45acp ball along with a née leash and we head for the checkout (& another treat)

    And it gets worse.

    $175 delivered for 500 rounds of Winchester 230g GI Ball from Ammoman, showed up today. ........do I need more brass? NO! Hell, I can reload for <$9/box! But it was a good deal these days for 45acp

    Impulse buying it's a sign on depression! Just saying! A lot of us here are depressed! :)

    You need to shoot more and shop less.

    But I really can't say anything, I still have 9mm that I bought for $5 a box

    Yep, I've still got WWB 100ct 9MM from Walmart when it was $9.99. Probably the smartest financial decision I've made. :D

    Yeah, I used to buy a lot of that ...
    Unfortunately, I've shot it all up, and need to pay the current 20c a round price ... :frown:

    lol, this reminds me of shooting with my Son on Saturday. He just picked up a Walther PPK, and I said I may have some reloads for it in the basement. I thought I had one partial box. Nope, 6+ boxes. Date on the boxes? 1997. I don't own a 380auto, the reloads were for a friend and he didn't end up needing them.

    And.... they shoot great!

    And... I need to pickup some more reloading supplies...

    At least you can blame the tragically named dog.

    Obviously it was a set up.
