The city was throwing things away today, and Dad's Rule was in full effect.
You don't know Dad's Rule? That's the rule that states that if you throw away more than two items in my dad's presence, he will inevitably know someone who would be willing to pay money for at least one of the items being tossed.
Today, one of the items being tossed was a large cardboard box full to the brim of 50-round .38 Special ammunition boxes. Each of the ammo boxes (mostly Winchester white box) is full of .38 Special brass apparently saved long ago by the Police Department. Not 50 rounds per box, but full. I don't know how much is in there, but the whole thing is surprisingly heavy altogether. I wouldn't be shocked if it were 2-3,000 rounds.
Dad has a .38 Special, and I don't, but I have a reloading setup, and he doesn't. I tried to tell My Bride that we now need a .38, but she exercised her veto powers. Still, I think we can have a lot of fun shooting wadcutters through dad's revolver . . . . and what was the alternative?
Throw it away?
