Very glad to hear about your triumphant, or rather "Vulcanic" return! Welcome back to real freedom, brother. Enjoy it.

I can't ride to work till it cools off. I just don't have the physical strength to hold the bike after working 16 hours in a 115 degree plant. Hopefully the rides will resume shortly. But that's awesome to hear.

I'm a scooter and a shooter! lol
as for a reloader? the only thing (as of right now!) I reload is the magazines....with factory rounds! lol
someday I would like to get into reloading though. but that would mean I'd need more time to do that too!
you know there is never enough time to do ANYTHING! blast!

Good to hear you are back on two wheels Ruger.

Don`t know how many rounds you go through at the range in a shooting session, but even with Dillons most economical progressive loader, the Square Deal "B", my friend and I can load a couple of hundred rounds of .38 Special per hour. I haven`t really kept up to date with their line for several years, but as I recall they also have automated ones that you just have to keep full of brass, powder, bullets and primers. These will crank out many hundreds of handgun rounds per hour. I`m not as familiar with their rifle reloading equiptment.

As with most things in life - it is a compromise between time, space and money for the activities in which you participate.
