    My daughter and son-in-law had to work late today so 'Nono' got to babysit after school. I set 'em up in the TV room with snacks, drinks and cartoons then snuck off to the loading room to size some bullets from this weekend's casting. Wasn't long before I heard a voice from the doorway... Nono, can I help you load bullets?

    Wasn't long before 'Daddy' showed up and the granddaughter wandered in.

    The granddaughter had to have her turn... Daddy wasn't happy when the informed him they weren't leaving until all the bullets were done. Saved me a bunch of work.

    For those of you who think you might get bored with reloading... it gets more and more fun as the years go by... trust me.

    I wonder if the grandkids have any friends with good looking single mothers... okay, good looking single grandmothers,

    Jack

    :supergrin: The little things in life.





    Just curious, how many did you make them crank out before you let them leave?

    Little over 500.


    I prefer the term 'entrepreneurial spirt'. Think I'll start a sneaker company... maybe I'll call it Nike.

    That's cool "Nono"....yeah I thnik all the GT rreloading guys are gonna start callin you that. My boys help out some in the reloading room (read- garage). I often wonder if I'm passing down an art that is on the verge of being lost.
    One more thing- Jack I guarantee you in a few years those kiddos will be telling their friends how they used to or still do hang out at Nono's and load ammo and how cool it is...not many of the other kids will be able to say they had the same opprotunities. Good on you for gettn 'em started early. Have fun with it.

    hmm.. i have that same chair at home ..

    its a good chair but dont go side to side , its just press fit and will fall apart on you, if you get a chance use a little wood glue in the joints and its solid as can be

    Most importantly you are teaching them something and makeing memories that will last thier entire life. Plus you are lettting them touch, try and learn about it. Remove the mystery and you will never have to worry a moment about them with firearms, reloading or components. A plus is you know they learned it right.

    I would start buying some sewing machines and glue for the sneakers!

    my son turns 4 this week and he has helped size expand and seat bullets. i cant wait until he wants to do more like 500 instead of the 50 he does now.
