One more use for plastic grocery bags
« on: October 06, 2019, 12:27:26 PM »
I got tired of cleaning the finished cartridge bin of my Dillon Super 1050 after reloading sessions, so I line the bin with a plastic grocery bag.  After reloading and dumping out the ammo the bag is thrown away.

Voila!  Clean cartidge bin.

Fvck Connecticut's plastic bag ban.

Actually it's a tax now, ban later. You both win!

 When the ban comes, I will be a outlaw with my bags saved for decades. I figured a ban would come one day here

You can have the lower bunk in our enviroNazi re-education concentration camp.  I call dibs on the upper bunk.

Hoarded a whole cabinet-full in our kitchen.
Never knew why, but now it pays off.

What a luxury.

Or a trove of treasure!

If bans now, the ongoing 'post-ban' price is about 10 cents per bag in grocery stores.

Imagine the pre-ban price of a pristine condition plastic grocery bag!... Hehe.  :wall:
