You know you have ADD when...you begin to start a small task that should take only a few minutes to complete, and the phone the rings. As you stand no more you slam the phone down on telamarketer. Managing to get back on focus with the task, your completely oblivious as to where the tool is you need to complete the task. You then franticly search for something you just had in your hands just 3 minutes ago. You begin looking and relooking and looking and relooking every possible place you can imageine. Agonizing in your unorganized environment, you come across other items you had lost in the same way, just the day before. Fighting to stay on track and find this object only get's more difficult, as you are constantly reminded to finish other tasks now that you have found the needed tools. Enraged you can no longer control your emotions, anyone within your screaming voice is a victim of blame and profanity. Your neighbors go inside and your wife decides it may be a good time to take the kids to the park. Frustrated and exhausted after hours of torment you can stand no more. Collapsing down where you started, tears begin to swell in your eyes, hopelessness takes over, but you manage to continue as you find what your looking for staring at you in plain view. Wiping the tears from your eyes, you can't help but wonder the meaning of it all, as if God had nothing better to do than play games with your mind.

(c) You finally get a Dillon 600 progressive press and a precision lab scale to check charge weights without pulling bullets. (d) You still use IMR 4064 powder because a medium charge completely fills the case so you can't accidentally overload a round.
