    Sell Lee.jpg I would like to give these to a youngster but I doubt if any would use something like this in today's world.

    The one in the shipping box is a 20 gauge that I bought when I was 15, the year after Dad gave me a single shot Harrington & Richards for my birthday. I got a quarter a rabbit from the old widows in town. Shot my first pheasant on the fly with that gun.

    The other is a 12 gauge after I came up in the world.

    I had a PM before you Beefy. I am going to wait a while and see if any young person can use them first.

    I collect them and use them occasionally. Not shotgun though. Shot is kinda high to buy and ship. I gave a friend my oldest 16ga set from 1956.

    I started with a .357 years ago and I’m probably lucky I’m still alive.

    My first was a 16 gauge side by side I got from my uncle for feeding his mules all winter. I think I still have 12 and 16 gauge lee hand loaders somewhere.

    I remember watching my Dad loading 16 gauge in the utility room. Primers, sizer dowel, powder, then wad, then shot, then overwads, all using the nylon hammer, .... wack, wack, wack. Great Memories!

    My son is 13 and he just asked about these the other day. He is all into trapping hunting and being self reliant. He asked about being able to carry one of these kits in his possibles bag and be able to reload hid own rounds just like how Mel Gibson was casting bullets out of toy soldiers in the patriot.

    He has bought himself a 12 guage and a 20 guage as well as a 36 cal black powder revolver and he uses his stuff to small game hunt and run traps rather than my stuff in the gun cabinet. If you havent found a home he would put them to good use. Thanks Adam
