How about old meat in the pot? Its now on its 5th barrel, and is now just 
past a century old. And I'm always looking for the load that will put 10 
shots in one small, ragged hole.

Old meat in the pot is why I bought a 70 year old Sheldon lathe and cnc'd 
it. I needed to replace a rusty barrel that wasn't shooting at all 
accurately, chambered for the Ackley-06, with something a bit easier on 
the shoulder at the rifle range, a 6.5 Creedmoor.

There is a certain cachet to being able to say /I/ did it. Its just part 
of who I am.

I have become good enough at the electronic arts, and the mechanicals 
too, that I have occasionally claimed to be a joat. But generally, I 
leave those comments to people that have watched me work.

They've come up with some doozies a few times.

Couple of parameds the insurance company sent around to see if I was 
breathing regularly before they'd issue a $50k life policy in 1977, 
asked to see my feet at the end of a sorta physical. I asked "whats my 
flat feet got to do with this?",  "We heard you could walk on water, so 
we wanted to see if they were webbed."

And he said it with a straight face... LMAO. And remembering that
still puts a grin on my face. I expect you, Tomas, could tell similar 
tales.
