  1. For most people a 1 in 100 chance of dying is unacceptable. COVID-19 is right at that threshold. Further, many victims take months to recover and may never fully recover. I've seen shooters at CAS matches tethered to an oxygen bottle. I don't want to be one of them.
  2. It might be a good time to use any SW gift cards you hold soon. When a Canadian-based company bought the SW outlets in the NW the cards became worthless. Locally our SW outlet is located near a Cabelas. I could see the SW outlet closed to drive traffic to Cabelas. That would be unfortunate as SW has a better (but unreliable) selection of reloading supplies. SW discount coupons handed out at SASS matches have subsidized my reloading purchases.
  3. When I was at the Revenge in June in Montrose, CO Colorado Cast was well-stocked. You might contact them. http://www.sanjuanshootingrange.com/colorado-cast-bullets I made my last order from Band and Clang. George's site says he's 4-weeks behind on filling orders. I also do business with Chey-Cast. There's got to be someone in the Southeast who can supply you.
  4. A fellow shooter has a niche business shopping estate and garage sales for firearms-related items that he resells at local gun shows. He sold me a MEC Jr out of his inventory to get me started in loading BP shotgun shells.
  5. I own several Stoegers. They're decent, entry level CAS shotguns. I recently bought a CZ that was worked on by Longhunters. It is a better shotgun. CZs have chrome-lined barrels that make clean-up after shooting black powder with plastic wads quite easy. Cleaning unlined barrels is more work (but not excessively so). Borrow a CZ at a match and give it a try. That will tell you whether it is worth another $500.
  6. I noticed a pop-up ad where they were selling .223 rounds for $2/each!
  7. I too have mild arthritis in my one of my hands. Protect those thumbs! Shoot light 38 Special loads with 125 grain or 105 grain bullets in your revolvers. Avoid factory ammo (as if you could buy any now) and reload for minimum recoil. You may need a separate load for your rifle.
  8. Thanks for supporting Land Run. Good job finishing 1st place Lady Gunfighter. I will load my shotgun shells for Winter Range with the BP sub I purchased from you.
  9. You will get answers pro and con regarding real BP in a conventional powder measure. BTW, Hodgdon says Triple Seven can be safely dispensed from ordinary powder measures so I do. I dispense real BP from a measure made for BP. BTW, welcome to the darkside!
  10. My wife shoots a chrome-lined SKB. I shoot a unlined Stoeger. Her SKB cleans with one pass of a wadded paper. My Stoeger sometimes needs two passes. No big deal, just a little more work.
  11. AA, Duelist1954 on YouTube has some videos how to load shotgun shells without a press. See Part 1. I load mine on a MEC Jr I bought just for reloading BP shells. Other use a Lee Load All. Yes, BP and the subs ruin the crimp on plastic shotgun shells. I mostly load Gun Club hulls I get for free and toss after one firing. I use plastic wads and have to remove the snake. It's an easy task. +1 on Ballistol though some use olive oil. Regarding the subs, APP is most popular though I use Triple Seven and the discontinued MZ. Avoid Pyrodex as SD warned.
  12. Is the CZ shotgun still for sale?  If so, I want to purchase it.
