    between my poor crimps that i don't want anybody to see and my poor shooting that everybody sees, i can't afford to keep on wasting money like this: my crimps are gonna have to improve this year! expendable income is nice, but humiliation shouldn't cost this much: i can remember when it was free. anyway, good luck with it

    You need to order my latest book: "The Perfect Crimp". it's available for only $99.95, payable to me personally and if you act within the next 15 mins, i'll double that order.S & H extra, of course. : )

    All seriousness aside, there is no way you can't come up with perfect crimps with a little patience and by reading the instruction manual. It's not rocket surgery.Even my crimps look good, not that anyone is judging them one way or the other.

    Just think you could be in the bar making a damn fool of yourself for much more. There now are you glad to be shooting or what? Bill

    My wife humiliates me every day and she doesn't charge me a dime. It gives her something to do and it seems to make her feel better. It also gives me a reason to visit the gun shops and shows more frequently so it works out good.

    As far as crimps go, I lost that aggravation when I sold that @#^! progressive MEC. Buying them off the shelf now makes me feel independently wealthy. It's all good.

    Well, we're living in America;
    We're not starving;
    And nobody's shooting at us.

    So, who worries about poor crimps?

    Don't take up golf, it is twice as expensive and the humiliation is much worse

    In 41 years I have spent a total of $405,000.00. I keep records of every dollar I have ever spent in association to trap shooting. I wouldn't trade my experiences, friendships I have made for anything. It was money well spent in my opinion. I just love this sport.

    my crimps look great
    but i honestly take credit for that
    thats all P/W's work your looking at

    and if you think this is expensive try racing
    thats 10X more expensive and time consuming
    it was like having a part time job that cost me money

    Shooting is for people who can't race any more.
