  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.
  14. Shoulda thrown the gun into the lane next to you... I heard that works well, particularly with loaded firearms Disclaimer: dont do this... click the linky on my signature
  15. Judging from my experiences you have a 12 hour window to buy things at normal prices before hysteria takes hold in the industry and a buying panic takes hold.
  16. Just throwing it out there that kalishnikov concern owns saiga unless im reading this wrong. So saiga imports stop no? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalashnikov_Concern
  17. That article says "if you own" it says nothing about "if you want to buy
  18. I actually just got a new 21' above ground without the filter.. If your pool is of similar size id love to take it off your hands if available. Im in Monroe half the week so id be close by. Let me know
  19. You could use an online auto payment calculator but a lot of factors really rest in your court. Given the chance to upgrade options, how much are you willing to spend total on the car? Do you want just a base model? The term of loan and the financing play a huge part and is essentially 2/3rds of the payment calculation. I wouldnt expect to go to a dealer and find a bare bones model but it is possible. Stop by a dealer and see what the sticker prices are on some of the particular car you are looking at. Note that you can obviously get less than sticker price, but dont expect for them to knock 30-40% off the car. You can ball park your total car estimate and dont forget to add taxes (7% on the final cost) as well as title fees (approx $500 give or take) If you can approximate the final value of the vehicle you are buying within a grand or two, research the financing deals both Ford offers for a Mustang AS WELL AS independent car financing from say a car or a bank, and the term in which you are ok with paying for a new car you can get a pretty close figure as to your monthly payment.
  20. My hats off to you for being a owner of multiple huskies btw. I live a very active lifestyle but nothing to keep up with their desire to run. Then again im sure having more than 1 keeps them both occupied at times.
  21. That is a big difference, but then again 5 months is really too early to tell when she'll be done. Im sure she'll add a few more inches and lbs on before she tops out. Beautiful pups btw. lil edit* dont want to thread jack
  22. I hate twitter lol. but I like that term inter... "ammosexual"
  23. Glad to hear everyone is ok brother. Better off the shed than the house every day of the week. Where are you located specifically in CNJ? Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk
