I like guns.

I shoot a lot.

That's the story.

Me too. Last 2 guns I bought was because I didn't have any in a particular caliber. I reload and enjoy it very much so adding a new gun/caliber just adds to my fun...

Címon dood.......you told me you buy more guns in a week than I did in two years. Thatís a store and thatís the story. If you kept up that pace just because you like guns a lot, there would be guys with black ties knocking on your door and helicopters circling your joint. Do you have escape tunnels? Batmobile?

Purchasing numerous guns....

If a person owns a lot of different handguns and rifles, he is probably a collector and a shooter.....only a few states like California, have restrictions on handguns and other weapons, and have an "approved list" for owning handguns.....

Even so, I have purchased quite a few handguns over the years, usually at a price I could not pass up, and have never lost money when I resold them a few years later....so it has been a worthwhile investment when you "buy low and sell high!" Plus, I had the enjoyment of shooting them! Fortunately, I do not live in CA!

Exactly.

I did well in the business world for 32 yrs. Retired at 55 and I'm at a stage in life where I can buy whatever I want, whenever I want and as frequently as I want.

Clearly there are some here who want to see the size of my bank account. Not gonna happen and I'm done with this thread.

Nah....not necessary, and don't get mad.
I have known a bunch of seriously crazy gun flippers in my time.
Its pretty nuts to think about an individual that buys 5 new guns every week.
I have trouble shooting what I have, I cannot fathom trying to run all that!

The only guys who seemingly get into trouble are revolver guys who play with hammer springs.

Glad you got things figured out.
I've been reloading since 1977 and had also come to the conclusion that there just wasn't much difference in primers as long as you used small pistol, magnum, large pistol or whatever for its proper application.
Last month though I'd run low on the Winchester small pistol primers I commonly use when loading for my .38 Supers. I had a thousand Remington 1 1/2 small pistol primers I'd been given, so I thought I'd try them. I was loading some 115 grain Jacketed HP bullets over 6.7 grains of Unique. Seven grains being max in my Lyman manual. I'd had zero issues with these loads using Winchester SP primers. I dropped the charge to 6.2 grains of Unique and loaded ten rounds using the Remington primers. When I test fired them I noticed quite a bit of burning powder and smoke coming out of the 4 inch barrel of my Wilson CQB. Something I'd never noticed when using Winchester SP primers, though I do get a fireball when shooting them in low light. When I looked at the primers of my ejected brass I saw that the primer dents had been flattened back out and one side of my fired cases where covered with soot from the mouth to the case rim.
I did some further research on the Remington 1 1/2's and found that they are not recommended for high pressure loads such as .357 Sig, and .357 magnum. No mention of .38 Super, but it said they were OK for .38 Special and up to 9MM +p. No more of these for me.

Weird, but probably because rounds like the 357 should be loaded with magnum primers if you do the full house loads. Slower powder = magnum primer in that case.
