Liviu - I asked my son about the scale situation. He felt that you don't have to worry about what you said. A scale alone is not presumptive evidence that you have drugs, especially if the scale is in grains. Druggies prefer scales in grams, although their use of one in grains is not unknown. He is the drug identification officer for his station in the CHP. Of course, he can't speak for your state, but he said it is not quite so easy to tie a guy to drugs as what you mentioned. Evidently there are lots of legal hoops they have to jump thru which sometimes are bad but sometimes are good. He didn't feel that someone like yourself having a scale should be any problem at all. At any rate, I wouldn't be without a scale under any circumstances. I have a single-beam balance I use for reloading, and an electronic scale in my library room I use for cartridge purposes. It is a basic cartridge collecting tool, just like a magnet (actually magnets, plural, are better - at least strong and weak) magnifying glass (especially for us old guys with failing eyesight) and vernier caliper of one sort or another. An inertia bullet puller (properly used only on identified bullet types!) is another.
