I cried a little today when someone called us to dispose of a gorgeous Walther PPK.... It made me sick having such a cool little gun in my hand and having to send it off to be melted down.

Aww man, that sucks. Makes you wish you worked for Philly or Detroit sometimes.;) j/k. Still sucks though. No chance of that one making it to GT?

I remember when primers were .69 cents a hundred back in 1975. I was in high school and had to buy them by the hundred because I couldn't afford a thousand at time back then
besides I only had about 150 rounds of .38 brass to reload back then
