It was a truly great Father’s Day. It started with a great breakfast around the house with my family, and we decided it would be fun to go out driving country roads and hitting barn sales. The weather was beautiful, and we were far away from traffic. We didn’t see too many sales right away, but the further we got out into the countryside the more we saw. The kids bought clothes and DVDs, and I purchased some gardening tools for our cabin property. It was relaxing, and I always look forward to wheeling-and-dealing. Then it was on to lunch- a small joint named Scott’s Dairy Freeze. Good old fashioned burgers and fries enjoyed outside on a park bench. Good times!
On our way home I saw a gun shop in a small town. It was the tables out front with items on sale that caught my eye, so I stopped and perused the piles. I couldn’t believe my eyes: brass with boxes for $2./50, 40S&W brass in bags: $2./50. 500 S&W magnum brass, $3./50. Dies for $8.-ish a box. This was even better than the garage sales!
I even found a powder trickler that I’ve been looking for for $3.00. Yes, this was a great sale on a great Father’s Day. It was even more special given that we’re in such a crazy shortage on supplies right now. This was truly like a breath of fresh air. Now I have items to load with, to trade with friends, or to just give away.
What did you all do on Father’s day? Please share!
