    So what are you doing to keep your sanity while "social distancing"? I know it's different state by state and case by case, but I've been on stay at home orders since Thursday (now my whole state is). I finally got my reloading press up and running, cleaned some firearms that were past due, organized my bench, and will probably do some spring Buick prep this week. So what's keeping you guys busy? Buick stuff? Reading? Netflix? That bottle of McCallan 12 year you were saving?

    I was told that manufacturing was an essential job here, so I'm working. I better not get this sh!t :mad::(

    I wish i could be doing cool stuff like reloading, working on my car or even house/garage projects. I even got a demo bucket here so when we had no work i could keep busy. :(

    Nice dillion by the way. I have 2 550's and a 650. They are awesome.

    Thanks. This is an old 450 that was bought new by my grandfather and has a few 550 upgrades. I took possession when he passed away and have finally got to do something with it. I hope to add a 550 soon (the interchangeable tool heads sure would be nice!). Dillon's are great though and their customer service while getting this one back into fighting shape has been nothing short of extraordinary. I've never dealt with a company so unflinching in backing their product. They have a customer for life here.

    Are you loading 300 BLK?

    I set the 550's up for pistol and the 650 for rifle. I love them. Its totally relaxing just popping reloaded rds out. Kinda like candy. :p

    I still have to work, but I made sure that I got most of the supplies to work on the frame and under body of my 1986 Cutlass Salon. At least there shouldn't be anyone stopping over asking me to work on their car.

    Got my pro touring car fired up for the first time yesterday, hoping to get it road worthy by this time next week.

    cleaned out the basement in the house and painted our spare room. More “home improvement” items to come.

    fun thread- thanks for posting Shawn

    Still working, elevator/escalator tech considered essential employee’s. Managed to stay clear of the layoffs, more may be coming.
    Just ordered the rest of the materials I need for Sniper install. Had a vacation coming up that’s canceled, but I’m sure my employer won’t cancel it. Stay safe my Buick brethren.

    I will be preparing three camp pads for 3 14×32 cabins on 4 ft ICF crawl space.
    These will be the first cabins of our Active Duty Military camps.
    Lots to do.

    Working on organizing and cleaning small parts for the 66 GS project car. Got the side trim polished and need to put the black stripes on the pieces now. Also reclaiming a room in the house that was used for storing stuff/junk.

    Still working though that may change later this week. I’ve got the engine and transmission out of the California. Was hoping to drive it to the GS Nationals, still hoping!

    Our office is open, but not in the traditional sense. We are in the office, all staff, but the door is locked. I don't need anyone bringing in something nasty to one of my employees that I could never forgive myself for. So, we answer phones, take payments over phones, send and receive DocuSign's and conduct business at "arms length". I am an insurance agency owner and yes, we are part of the permitted necessary businesses so passed by the government. Like I said, we're open, but not to greet you with open arms.

    BTW, I own and operate an insurance agency in central Ohio.

    You Sir have a keen eye! 220gr at just under mach1 (~1050fps). Suppressed is a lot of fun with them.

    John, I've had to step away from a Lapua a time or two. I want one so bad, but that's a big money round to shoot!

    Brad, I guess that means I'll be receiving my yearly premium in the mail any day now.

    All great posts guys, keep em coming. Helps tame the cabin fever to see what everybody is up to.
