Been doing a lot of reloading recently. Currently working on 6.5x55mm Mauser. The trusty old XL650 started having a problem with the case-feeding mechanism. It’s just a couple of piece of plastic, and it looks sort of like it’s getting old and worn out. Their customer service is getting hammered, so I scheduled a call-back. A guy from Dillon called about an hour later. I described the problem, and he just said “I can just mail you a replacement mechanism. Should do the trick. It’ll be in the mail tomorrow. Can I confirm your mailing address?” Total call length was maybe three minutes. Not the cheapest presses on the market, but I absolutely love their true “No BS lifetime warranty.” They don’t even sell the XL 650 any more.
Brothers in Arms
Brother Libra sat alone in the officer’s mess, quietly saying a prayer over a middle-of-the-night meal of warmed something, the result of Kwon’s experiments. “… and please let this be a reward for a hard day’s work, not a penitence for some forgotten uncharitable thought, like the last one. Amen.” Around him, the ship vibrated faintly as it flew silently through the watery depths back to hopefully useful territory. As he finished his prayer Moffett walked in looking worn out and sleepless, carrying a mug of soup with a spoon sticking out of it. Libra waved him to a seat and waited for him to take it. Moffett looked across the table at him uncertainly and vaguely crossed himself, as if he half expected to be asked to, making Libra smile and nod in acknowledgment and approval of the gesture. Once again it could be observed that there are few atheists in a foxhole.
terrorists protesters are suing the City of Seattle for the cost of their “forced” upgrading of protesting gear. Yeah, totally idiotic, not based in reality, right? What if they win?
What?! You say, shocked at the notion, the absurdity of it. Think: the left has a long history of “sue and settle” with cooperative government agencies as a way to do and end-run around laws and pols via the courts, particularly in the realm of environmental issues. So consider: they are running out of funding as their socialists backers are feeling the squeeze of Trump’s actions. So they sue the (amenable) city of Seattle, the city settles and hands them a bunch of taxpayer dollars so they can continue to
riot protest “safely.” If that happens, then YOU, the taxpayer, are helping fund the people trying to burn your business and kill you.
So, if that happens, who’s the chump? and will any normies hear about it?
