I think that you are looking for something similar to what is used at Martin's Station. You can contact Billy Heck and see if he has any suggestions.

This is one of those things I wish I had done when I was young enough to do it. I am afraid that time has passed. It must have been great.

Another thing to consider is the way people used the internet now. Less and less are sitting in front of a computer and typing in messages. Now people use their iPhones or Androids. I was at a meet ...

You might try the L&R replacement locks. I had good luck with one on a Traditions gun some years ago.

I use a leather belt about 1" wide. I have worn it 24/7 many times and never had a problem. Others use a silk sash rolled into sort of a rope. I imagine a strip of wool would work but I think ...

That's a strange one. Sort of sounds like she is validating exactly what was said about her site. And complaining that it was said.

I use the same material. But it sort of depends on the size of the buttons. A 3/4 inch or larger should be no problem. But there can come a time when the wool may be just too thick. Then the threa ...
