Almost like stepping off the plane in Dubai, Bagram or Baghdad, wham!! it hits you square in the kisser and takes your breath away. (just no humidity.. only the heat!) The humidity on our farm gets so bad, my wife sits on the porch swing and looks out across the field watching the birds fly around and drink the air!
I called a gunsmith buddy of mine in Suffolk, he said to get in contact with Mac's Reloading. He's local also and does the Hampton Roads gun shows. He also made remark of the shortages and how long it's taking for supplies to return. It's almost like all ammunition and reloading components are being kept off the market as a means of back door gun control. Wouldn't put it past Holder and the boys.
My wife and I really aren't crazy about hunting in Va either. Send a bunch of starving dogs out chasing a scared to death, adrenaline filled deer towards a line of power poles with a slug gun and a 6 pack on every pole. It sounds like downtown Ramadii when the poor deer shows itself! That ain't hunting in my book. That's just 'deer-acide!'.
No offense Va hunters. I was just brought up to stalk and hunt, respect the animal and to kill with one precision shot.
Welcome to Tidewater lloydsmale. It's a nice place to live and tons of great places to visit near by. Busch Gardens and Water Country are great fun the military gets an awesome discount. If you are in to American history, you are in the center of it. Just up 460 is the Petersburg/Richmond battlefield, on the peninsula is Yorktown where the 1st Revolution was won, awesome concerts at the amphitheater, and Tides Baseball at Harbor Park can't be beat. I hope that you get out and enjoy the area when you get the chance.
Hope to meet up with you guys when I get home.
