Valentine's Day ?

Does the Super 1050 make a good Valentine's Day present ?<br /><br />Is it better than flowers and chocolates ?<br /><br />

Of course it is! However, convincing my wife is where the problem is.:)

Convincing one's spouse should be the easy part.

Given how much time you will save by having a 1050 preset to each cartridge you load for, you will be able to save so much time and all that saved time can be devoted to helping your spouse with their loads and shoot prep.

Feb. 29 comes but once every four years, what a perfect reason and date to get a new machine! What better way to celebrate the leap year! I'm on your side, new machines for everybody! BTW, my wife got me 2 machine covers and 10 quick change covers for this past Christmas.

I'm for it.

February 29th should be declared "Dillon Day".

Every one should buy their spouse an additional Dillon machine - an upgrade - every February 29th.

If you have a 550, then your spouse buys you a 650.

If you have a 650, then your spouse buys you a 1050.

If you have a 1050, then your spouse buys you a 1050 with the other primer size.

February 29th. Mark your spouse's calendar.

RE: Valentine's Day ?

   I've got a great idea for a Dillon promotion. On Feb 29th, Dillon could offer a discount to previous Dillon owners for a second (or third) machine. "Dillon Day" Dillon never has a sale, but what would it hurt for this to happen once every FOUR years? I would promote it at the local gun store, (I work there when he needs help, like Back Friday weekend). I'm there a couple times a week anyway, but I could go the whole week leading up to Dillon Day, and demonstrate the machine at the store. What say you Dillon? The store owner wants another 1050 as well, so he would be easy to convince. I'd work for free doing demos, and we all can get a second or third machine! Dillon gets a "holiday" and exposure! It's a win-win. Let's work on this hammer, my wife is very receptive to having more ammo...

The day is here, is there any news from Hammer? Dillon never responded to the challenge, so it's full price leap day. I'm going to the range and not returning until after lunch so if FedEx/UPS/USPS shows up, I'll leave a note on the door...

I waited and waited for the big "get another Dillon" sale.

I even did my taxes as I waited.

Finally, decided that we were off by a day.

Dillon is going to do it on Super Tuesday.

It will be a Super 1050 Tuesday.

Hammer1,
It's Easter! Anything special in your basket this year? I got lots of candy, 3 chocolate bunnies, but nary a die set or press. The peeps will be great once they get stale.
Happy Easter to all on the forum,
JJ

Nothing in my Easter basket this year.

Maybe on Mother's Day...

Mother's Day is coming soon.

Does every Mother get a dozen roses with her new Super 1050 ?
