    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!

    I wonder if there is lead recovery from indoor ranges.

    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
