    Reloading is a waste of money

    Reloading is a waste of money


    THIS is what you should be doing with your brass...making fashion accessoires to sell for $100 a pop!

    I had a .45 ACP dummy round keychain a long time ago..... now that I Carry, I think it would be a bad idea to advertise.....

    I bet most / all of those items would get you arrested in some countries, and kicked out of the "zero tolerance" schools in most U.S. states.

    It reminds me of how much more scrabble tiles are suddenly worth when someone sticks a cuff-link pin on the back of 'em

    That ring is ugly.
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    What a bunch of overpriced crap...
    Even with a sucker being born every minute, if he sells one of each I'm surprised.

    I think that it's the brass that makes the jewelery worth $300-$450 and not the Amythest or Rubys.

    P.S. A + vote for the (9mm Luger ring).

    I had that pic by rondog as my wallpaper at work (ultra-lib outfit) and a couple of positive comments were made on it. When asked, I told them it was an abstract sculpture of a flower. Tee-hee, smirk-smirk, giggle-giggle!

    I wouldn't be surprised at all. I've long maintained that if you sprinkled confectioners' glitter on a road apple or a cowpie and put a bow on either, you could sell it to Americans.

    It would certainly appeal to their "Inner Magpie." Jizzle and Glitter and Shinies appeal to Magpies. Just look at our recent election.... Ooops! Who said that?

    And that ring would be eminently suitable for a Texas Barbecue... if I understand what is worn at Texas Barbecues. (Superb pic, BTW.)

    I've got a nice ball-point pen made out of a .308 and a .44 mag cartridge.

    Some guy in Billings makes them. He owns some land up here in the hills and gave pens to all of us that were fighting a wildfire on his land.

    I just noticed. That's a pretty nice soldering job on that ring. Can you describe the process?

    re: soldering job. Pretty standard fare for anyone in the jewelry business.

    From shop class ring fabrication experience-

    - Fit pieces
    - flux
    - clamp
    - heat workpiece with acetylene or propane flame.
    - judiciously apply solder to joint
    - let cool
    - pickle in acid bath, which also removes excess flux
    - buff w/fine abrasive

    Silver solder or similar hard would be a good choice.

    ^ Thanks. My soldering experience is with pipes and wires. I do pretty good with copper tubing.

    Except one time I installed an outside hosecock but hooked it to the hot water line instead of the cold.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid!

    Great for washing the car, but the hose got all limp and flaccid from the hot water going through it.

    And burst.

    What fun! My backyard looked like those pix of the Old Faithful Geyser. All steamy and squirty.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid!

    But I was drinking back then.

    Here's a much better use for brass:

    My uncle makes these from .38 and .32 brass.

    I bought one of these and use it almost daily.
