What did you say?? When was the last time you opened it?? I have 2. 1 is used frequently and the other not so much-that one was a challenge until i made the combos very unique rifle calibers-much easier to recall than just a bicycle lock number! (one was prev. my g/fs measurements-but she keeps changing it on me!)
@C.W. Richter
Mate my gun cases and trigger locks all have the one combination. My favourite caliber. Every one on this sigh t now probably knows it.
No @CoElkHunter and @CHB it isn't 243.

A mate of mine forgot his combination but could open his safe with a key. Only problem he had misplaced the key.
When I asked him if he had a spare key somewhere safe he replied with a stupid grain on his face.
You guessed it he had locked it in his safe so he wouldn't lose it.
Some people you have to wonder about.

I am no psycologist, but mind workings interest me a lot. For sure subconcious auto responses like you describe are very fragile and seem to be the first to go. Try not using your computer for a month and see how elusive that password becomes! I suffer exactly that with my internet banking codes, it's a buggar. You have to somehow committ the process to the cognitive side, associations are the easiest, like a little rhymes. Duh, we all know this, but we dont do it!
easiest way to deal with that is to use a password vault, like LastPass or KeePass. Both free. Then the only password you have to remember is the one to the vault. I probably have 500 online accounts. I don't know the passwords to any of them, because they're all 15 to 50 characters in length, and are random strings of gibberish.

I'm in the IT security biz, and rely on vaults heavily, both at work and for personal use.

I have no problems with online pass words and other passwords, they are ALL THE same. I always forget so if any one asks my pass word I can simply say I forget. Works all the time but I do get some funny looks until they see it on their screen.

Not my real pass word but along similar lines
Smart!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
