A 250 count box of Berrys Plated .357 148 grain hollow base wadcutters makes one HELL of a racket when dropped down a hardwood staircase.

    That’s nothing, try dropping a 30 + drawer cabinet full of different calibers and weights down a flight of stairs.  :s

    I would like to say that as there is only a couple inch drop to the living room. BUT  all of my gun stuff is up a ships ladder in the loft.

    This all reminds me of the time I woke my wife up when I came home from dancing at the club. At 0200. I was really trying to be quiet, but things were a'jingling! I get this very sleepy "Make the tinkle go away..." from the direction of the bed.

    I need to have my custom holster maker make a new holster for my SpeedBeez speed loader.  The one I have is from SpeedBeez.  The problem is that if I lean up against something too hard (sometimes the chair back) the plunger on the speed loader gets pressed, releasing the rounds.  The design of the holster allows the rounds to then fall out and in my wife's words, I start pooping bullets.  :D

    Fives, preferably. 10 and 20s if we can get them. But Belly Dancers have coins ON their costumes - they tend to jingle/tinkle with every slight movement. Sometimes those little clamshell bells too. I even have tinkly coins on some of my earings!

    I was a regular at a very old club on "Cannery Row" for several years, until it was closed. There had been Belly Dancing there for 50 years every Friday nite - I was there about 2/3rds of the time. It was interesting, we never knew what the situation was going to be. Sometimes we had little to no audience, sometimes the place was packed. Sometimes there were only 2 or 3 dancers, sometimes we were lined up hipscarf to hipscarf!
    Show started at 2100, and ran until "whenever", usually well past midnite. I remember a couple of times getting in a bit late, walking into the dressing room and basically being run right through it onto the stage because there were 2 other dancers there and they'd already danced once: "Thank Goddess you're here, where's your music? Need a veil? Stage, NOW."
