Default Thanks folks

I just noticed on my profile that I have been a member here for 10 years this month. Thanks for spreading your wisdom and knowledge. I had a 20 gauge topper and a 223 handi rifle when I found this site (Not counting my multiple shot firearms) and I am now a certified Handi-holic that now reloads for just about every caliber I own. I didn't own a single die before I joined. My boys kids and grandkids have even more H&Rs, most of which came from this site either as a whole firearm but usually piece by piece.
You guys have been great. Thank you all.

Make it count.

Big Grin.

That's what you like to see, success story's.

Interests wide and widely varying.
Happily married 18 years. Retired on SS with lots of time to spend.
Started with .223 Ultra Bull barrel. Added .357 Talo barrel. Added an action and stock set bought here, 7.62x39 barrel. Then bought complete guns .444 Marlin and .300 Blackout. Leaving me at 4 complete rifles plus a barrel. Plus a 9mm stub job bought here, and I have been finding and buying H&R shotguns at our local pawn shop where they seem to go cheap.

I second that, other than one or two grouches, that's the reason we hang around.

When you allow a lie to go unchallenged, it becomes the truth.

A statement of fact: H&R Huntsman & Sidekick blued barrels are made of 4140 steel.

There is always a Negative Nancy or two on every site but Tim does a pretty good job of keeping folks in check and to limit trolls.
I have learned a lot on here and passed on a little useful information myself a time or two.

Make it count.

Petemi called it the way I see it. But I have no problem with either of ya. I have been known to grouch myself, trying to fix that bad habit.
