  1. This is actually an amazing alternative. Believe it or not, its cheaper than most hardware designed for leather decoration. Thank you for the link, and thank you @griz for bringing up the lead concerns. I wouldnt have thought to consider it otherwise. Going to do a little more research about these snap caps and see what theyre made of. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  2. Im not entirely sure if it would be too big of an issue. While there is certainly lead in the round, there is no skin to lead contact (about 1/4" of leather between) or cause for particulates to become airborne, but I agree its a question worth pondering if im missing other means of absorption/contamination.

  3. That would be ideal, however i'm hesitant of its effects over the course of say 10-12 years and if it could still pose a hazard. Id obviously prefer the look of an unstruck primer, but if there is still a chance of a primer ignition im not sure if id be comfortable taking the risk. Here's a few samples of previous collars. Prices really vary depending on design, cost of hardware used, etc. My collar price range varies from $75-$200. You can find some more of my work on facebook at Ridgeway Leatherworks or @ridgewayleather on instagram. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  4. So I've been doing custom leatherwork (firefighter accesories and custom dog collars) for the past few years and have had someone ask specifically for .22lr rounds to be incorporated into their dog's collar. After a little digging, ive found a few vendors actually do create decorations with inert .22. My guess is bullet pulling, dumping the powder out, setting off the primer, and finally reseating the bullet. Anyone ever do something like this before? Any special considerations to be mindful of that I am not taking into account? Thanks in advance! Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  5. I would think it would have tried to take some measures to protect it. The iver was oiled wet, triple bagged and tucked away. It was pretty wet when I took it out. I took some pics of finding the IJ. He had it tucked away in a fireplace clean out so it was kind of like a little treasure hunt. I had hopes it was the luger, as we had no idea he had this one. Thanks again! Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  6. Either would be a pretty awesome choice if I knew how to work a metal detector or if a magnet would pull through both insulation and or whatever bag/box it may be stored in. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  7. I actually was going to try a Thermal Imaging Camera to detect colder spots. Its cold in the attic, im sure a hunk of steel will show up colder than the insulation it may be tucked under... save from being bagged and boxed like this one was. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk
  8. Hello again... its been a while. I recently acquired my Grandfather's Iver Johnson Trailsman 66 .22. I know they dont have any monetary value but I was curious as to its date of manufacture. Serial is K122xx. Thank you! Next is off to find this mythical ww2 luger he allegedly hid somewhere in the attic. Only 1500 sq ft of insulation to rummage through.

  9. I remember when I called BA and asked if they had a 1911 to rent and they tactfully explained that it was currently unavailable to rent. Then found out why. While I dont think it is the rarest of the rare, it certianly isnt an epidemic. unstable people gun do unstable things.
  10. Well looking forward I hope they weigh that as a risk of keeping their firearms offsite and out of their possession. Something about 9/10ths of the law or some sort?
  11. I know. Just echoing my own experiences after witnessing how a good portion of NJGF turned on ShoreShot immediately after they discontinued their discount for members.. They were crucified as if they truly owed something to each individual member. I know we drove a lot of traffic their way but man we were childish as a group towards reacting to their change in policy. That said, BA was also a sponsor back in the day and caught a bad rep.... Any business that wants to tap into a hobby specific forum such as this would have to tread lightly between being a centerpiece of NJGF's Vendor Sponsors, vs operating a successful, profitable business.
  12. Having a trusted member from this community can go a long way with rebuilding BA's image.. then again.. take away their discount and the forums will turn on you like you just screwed their sister.
  13. Besides the ridiculous amount it takes to join.. I guess there's a meeting requirement yes? Cant think of anything else rather than that huge 800-900 dollar barrier to jump to get in.
