Bullets from car batteries. Never made that connection before.

And so when the lead-acid car battery market slows down due to hybrid cars...

There's got to be a conspiracy theory here somewhere, keep digging!

You know how when you buy a battery they charge you $7-$10 for a core charge? A few years ago my dad was buying the cores and selling them for $30-$50 each depending on size.

He ended up getting a call from an American overseas that wanted him to buy and ship batteries by the container load for him.

Yes and outdoor ranges

Loctite/paint pen/regularly check your gear. A gun falling off your belt is unacceptable
