    I'm selling guns to people to give as presents. Expensive guns. Shotguns, rifles and leaver actions.

    I'm getting underwear.

    Again.

    I am going to be building a couple chassis bolt action rifles as well as picking up a few reloading components. I am building another .308 rifle, 22-250, and maybe a .204 ruger. We will see.

    I'm getting a few things.

    I ordered a second holster for my Colt 1991, a "Defcon 3" model from Simply Rugged.

    Some new 1911 recoil springs (because you gotta replace them often in a 1911).

    1,500 bullets: 1,000 45 acp 230 grain FMJ's, and 500 10mm 180 grain TMJ's.

    A "Colt Firearms" logo ballcap.

    Most importantly, I'm off from work the week of Christmas to New Years, which will give me time to handload a mountain of ammo, and do some experimentation for some new handloads, especially in 10mm, 44 mag and 5.56.

    Nothing for shooting. I got a sound bar for my new TV. I got the TV from my kids for my birthday.

    Actually, I shouldn't be so quick to dismiss my Christmas gifts. My sisters gave me a set of Go-Jacks that they got to move an old Ferrari I owned. I sold it this fall, so they had no further use for them so I got them for Christmas.

    I, too, have no use for them, so I sold them on Craigs List. Like the next day after I put up the ad. Now I have enough money to buy one of the Dillon automatic primer loaders set up for large primers. I have one set up for small primers.

    ?Why will I buy another autoloader - because I'm lazy. Changing the primer set-up from one to the other is aa PITA, so this way I will have one for each. Kind of like buying a primer feed in large and small (makes for changing calibres that much quicker).
