He concludes using an electronic scale is too slow for loading many rounds. Sometimes a hybrid method is worth considering, which is faster than both: Set the electronic scale for your intended powder load, and set your mechanical powder dispenser at around a grain less than the intended load. Then all you have to do is drop the mechanical load into the electronic scale’s tray, put it on the electronic scale, and let it fill to the intended load. It only takes a second or two. Sometimes gray is better than black or white. Dan Becker Warminster, Penn. his toys and buy the soldiers guns and bullets. We explained that the military supplied the guns and ammo but the soldiers needed, and would appreciate, other things from home. He sold about $75 worth of toys which we matched along with both his grandmothers. He went to anysoldier.com and picked three soldiers and bought items from their lists, then mailed everything to them. He was privileged enough to meet two of the young soldiers when they came home. One was from the town next to ours and the other was from Ohio. We still talk to the soldier from Ohio and he has come to visit us several times. Both of them expressed the good feeling they get when they receive care packages from home. It lets them know that they are not forgotten. Everyone should remember that they are fighting for our freedom and deserve all of our respect and honor. Also, it’s amazing what a father can learn from his 7-year-old boy.

I always check out the on-line version while waiting for my print edition. I got my license to carry just a few years ago (I’m now almost 60) and carry a Rock Island 1911. I also own a vintage Remington M1917. Well, I’m reading the article on the SIG 2Sum and I look at the photo of Mas Ayoob and the caption that says “A happy Mas with 2SUM…” All I can says is, if that’s a happy Mas, I’d sure hate to see him when he’s unhappy! I’m still chuckling as I type. Keep up the good work, I’m getting a good education.
