Yeah, the other hobbies. When I retired my home office became my reloading area. I could even open the window behind the desk and test loads out to 50 yards. This was my wintertime sanity keeper. This time every year we'd set up two presses and start loading Christmas presents for one son. He likes to unload 30 rd mags as fast as he can on his AR when he comes to visit so each year he gets 500 rds of .223 for Christmas. Not this year, I'm afraid. My primer supply is down to 6,000 split evenly between small rifle and large rifle. Problem is I use small rifle primers much more often than the large. I even use the CCI 400s for the 9mm. For 22LR, I'm good for busting up dirt clods and tin cans but my target ammo is almost gone. I was just about to get another case of CCI Standard Velocity when the SHTF so I'm down to about a brick of that. One of my 9mm has a 22 conversion kit so I'm able to keep somewhat in practice. You know what's sad is if asked, many of us would say we don't have the ammo reserves we'd like to have but if the media found out a quarter of what many of us had on hand they would flip their lid and call us all sorts of unpopular names.
Last month the reloading equipment got boxed up and put away for better days. Another hobby I've had for many years is remote control aircraft and building plastic models. Since some of the quad flyers have ruined the RC hobby for anyone that flies anything I don't fly my planes as much as I used to so it's back to building plastic airplane models for a winter pastime.
This week is gun season in Ohio so 4wheeling in the woods isn't the nicest thing to do to the hunters on adjoining lands so that's out this week.
This is a concern as much as catching this virus. Our original plan was to sell this outpost in spring 2020 and move to a condo on the island of Moloka'i. Now staying isolated in an area with an abundance of wildlife and flowing good water is more important that abundant sunshine and warm temperatures.
