I started out helping my grandpa and uncle with an old Pacific press. We were loading rifles only. We always got busy before deer season. I was 10, so that was 56 years ago. That press is gone. I later got into multiple calibers and handguns, even shotguns. I've got a bench and the presses are mounted on 2x12s which I swap out clamped to the bench. I have even taken up casting over the years.
When I was in college, I had a couple of those Lee hand tools since I moved nearly every semester. Now, I have the end of my back deck walled in with a shooting slit in the back of it. I can do a load, turn around and fire it over the chrony, try another load. No more making a load and taking it to the range. It was a dream of mine I'd had for years, so we bought a house in the woods and I'm living the dream. I'm sorta glad I moved beyond those hand tools on the kitchen table.
