This post was awesome. I have a friend who manufactures ammo and he never explained it like this for me. I bet your tedious attention to detail and doing most of it yourself gives you deeper and a more profound appreciation for each round you squeeze off!
Some of the line design artwork i do can be extraordinarily tedious but i never get bored. I try to zone out and focus. You can check out a few of my older posts to see some examples if you like.
I had an idea i wanted to run by you and get your thoughts on. I know brass is not the most valuable metal... but it's not worthless. I had an idea of a humanitarian for profit charity to go into war-torn and ravaged areas. To have the expended casings of said wars collected and repurposed. To give a majority of the profits back to the regions decimated to help support the local people's with whatever their needs may be. That is the basic premise.
I don't know if it would be feasible or possible. Just an idea that has been ruminating for quite some time now in my mind. I saw a video of a firefight in Syria a long time ago. I saw how many rounds they were blowing through and thought... how much brass ends up just sitting in rubble world-wide and how could the weapons of war be reforged into plowshares so to speak. Any thoughts about why that would or wouldn't work? Thanks for the thought-provoking post!
Here is some Americana country music i highly recommend!
