My wife and I took a weekend getaway down to Staunton, VA. I found some pewter while antiquing that was smelted today for casting. We went to a gun store where I found some powder and a 405 gr mould for my new 1895. Then my wife talked me into buying a 336SC in 35 Remington that I had been eyeing. What a gal!

Congrats chsparkman on the rifle and especially the wife! Mine was with me when I picked up a couple of rifles at my local gun shop (had the local smith doing some customizing) when I saw a SBL and she encouraged me to get it! It's great when your other half helps with the marlinitis enabling....now I just need to tell her about the cowboy that I just bought!

Sounds like a great week to me, I guess I should stock up on pewter for when I eventually get my shop setup.

The pewter I melt down to cast bullets. I add just a half-pound to a full 20-pound pot. It adds just enough tin to help the moulds fill nicely.

I'll post a picture of the gun shortly.

We went to the range today but couldn't shoot the 35 since I have no ammo yet. I have 50 cases being sent to me. I did get out my new 1895 and it packs quite a punch. She liked shooting the 30-30 with light loads. The we went to the pistol range where she kicked my butt as usual.

Yep, she's pretty cool.

A good way to stave off Marlinitus with a road trip.

Hope you bought that keeper a nice dinner. ;)

Yes we had a couple of very nice high-end dinners. We also stayed in a very nice bed-and-breakfast. At one antique store she found a very nice gold dragonfly pin with a sapphire and some diamonds.

Doc if it wasn't for GoodWill I would be naked. Then I do like Pendleton, and Eddie Bauer clothing for $4 a shirt it's all good. I even get the geezer 15% discount.
