So I went to the gun show at UAF yesterday. Not really looking for much. I just bought a couple new guns but was looking for some odds and ends. Anyway, a guy had 2 Linotype Lead Pigs. 21lbs each. He wanted 25 bucks apiece for them. Well, I've been collecting lead and just got a hold of one Linotype Lead Pig so I passed on them. A few minutes later I saw a guy walking out with them with a very satisfied look on his face. So, naturally I felt the knife through the gut and heard the ol "what were you thinking!?" running through my brain. All total I could be sitting on about 65lbs of Linotype that when mixed with lead or ww lead would cast a lot of bullets for a long time.
A buddy of mine passed on a nice little Alaska Backpacker 3 inch S&W 44 mag and was going to go back today to buy it. I haven't heard from him so I suspect he's wondering also... "what were you thinking!?"
