That is never my intent, my intent will always be to stop the threat.

I would actually hope that when my gun comes out of my holster the bad guy drops his gun/bat/wrench/two by four and turns and runs away from me. At that moment the threat is no longer there....

Everyone I have known that have actually killed a human being (no matter how bad he/she was or how threatening the situation was) has had regrets and wishes that it did not have to happen.


In Virginia, there is no castle doctrine, so the only reason to shoot someone is that you believe (and that a reasonable person would believe) that you are in imminent danger to your life or limb, or for somebody's else's life..

Shooting in the triangle formed by his neck and his nipples is the best way to stop the threat (fast, and so is a head shot in the spot right above his nose) but once the threat is stopped, I am done with the shooting.

Just my two cents

p.s. here is but one article about what that is like... I have been told similar tales by a few friends who went thru this ordeal

No one wants to have to take another human life, but in certain life or death situations it may have to be necessary in order to not yourself be killed. Also, you may stop the threat, but the battle may not be over. More often than not a criminal will recover in the hospital only to then testify later that he only intended to steal your DVD player.....Then you go on trial for assault......

Default reloaders

I use Dillon RL550, you can view it at http://www.dillonprecision.com/
Dillon has a lifetime guarantee. I have several toolheads set for different calibers. For shotgun I use a Mec, its a workhorse: http://www.mecreloaders.com. Watch reloading videos at: http://www.ammosmith.com/ammosmith-c...-library.phpto get an Idea of the process.
Have fun but be SAFE!

Welcome.

Dillons are nice, but a little pricey for me.

If I was gonna re-load 9 mm, .45 APC or such, I would spend the money...
I load too many different rounds, and only small batches ....20 to 200 at a time, so the old single stage presses are just fine with me.

I like slow and double check each operation.

Hello mikew85120, I also use a Dillion RL550B reloader. I shoot competition with a AR15 and use redding reloading Dies on my RL550B. An like you say Dillion come with a no BS guarantee on there Reloader and other equipment. There are cheaper reloader out there like a Lee reloader and there is nothing wrong with a Lee, I started on a Lee but once I started getting better I bought a Dillion.

This thread has been kinda sticking with me for a while......

When some one wants to get started in re-loading, (original post)is like a 16 year old getting his drivers license.
I for one would not suggest buy a Lamborghini as the first wheels......Nor would I suggest a Dillon until one is off and running with some experience.

Learn first, slowly and safely then move on when it is time.

Carry on, JMHO

Agree...... Learn to fly the 2 seat Cessna before you solo the 747.... There is a time and a place for the Dillon, but not on day 1....

KnowwhatImean......
Enjoy
