Two days ago I despaired of finding any ammunition for my new rifle. Online I went to find reloading presses and dies, but I located only one in stock - an RCBS turret loader kit at Cabelas. I finally decided today to order the set, after much waffling about spending the money right now. Would you believe that today, Cabelas is out of stock, and the manufacturer has discontinued that set. Grrr....
So, a bit more searching, dodging my way around our nanny firewall at work that blocks any sites that mention weapons for some reason, I found another dealer with the same set, in stock, and $50 cheaper! It's ordered, and on the way. Better yet, the set comes with a certificate for 500 free bullets!
This made me think of a line from Justified[^]. Main character is asked why he threw a bullet at a bad guy. He responds, "To send a message." When asked what message he could possibly be sending by throwing a bullet, he says, "I told him the next one will come faster."
