    Ryan at the start of this thread you talked about solid S.S. mig rod. That animal just doesn't weld pretty no matter what you do tri mix is the right gas it's just an ugly process. We switched over to flux core S.S. much better penetration and way nicer beads using pure CO2. This is the brand rod we use not sure where it's made but it works great.

    Nice! I would have still bought both rolls off you at even $45 each!

    You should have bought some at that price. I just checked it to see if it was still there at that price and it is $80.03 now. Too bad I didn't see your post back in December. I would have for sure bought a 33# roll.

    they have a 33# roll of .063 flux core for $14 on Amazon. How is that even possible?

    I made few leather holsters, but I've hand sewn them. Used to drill the holes for the stitches on a mini drill press, but now prefer to use a hand punch. Looks like a miniature pitch fork. First holster I made was in the mid 90s, for an HK USP .40. It was a friend's. I've only made them for myself or friends because I'd either need the gun or a dummy of the gun to make it. And since I don't happen to have a full stock of plastic guns laying around, I wrap the gun in plastic wrap and it works pretty well. <br />

    If you're gonna make holsters Bob, I'm interested in a few.

I know better now.So I sold all of my stuff and got into reloading. Then it sat for 20 years while I ran around the country working and now I am loading again. Well playing with sewing machines now. Going to make holsters ...Bob
    I reload also. I got into it thinking that I would save some money. Didn't happen. Probably cost me untold more money. Just started shooting way, way more.

    I don't cast many myself anymore. To be honest by the time you fiqure in alloy cost and time, it's cheaper to just buy bullets from Berry's or Xtreme. Most of the people I sell alloy to are cowboy action shooter who are trying to be 100% authentic or hobbyist who soon realize it's cheaper to buy. I still cast my own for all my black powder and 45-70's but I have enough stocked for thousands of rounds now.

    I fiqure ill I'll hold on to my equipment though. If the world ever comes to an end, it will be a hot commodity.

    I kind of fell into it. I have made decoy weights for quite some time. There not much demand for them but a few months a year. You can shoot year round.

    Then you get a TV show for the rest of the year. Just sit around and chew the fat on TV while someone else makes the real parts ...Bob

    Tell me about it. I custom mix lead alloys for bullet casting as a little side gig. I routinely put the 70 pound limit in those flat rate padded envelopes and mail them anywhere for $6.10 using my commercial rate. I am very friendly with my mail guy but I'm sure he hates me nevertheless on shipping day.
