    New uses for gun-related equipment?

    I'm sure there are other people who have found second uses for some of their "gun stuff"...

    This morning I needed to weight down a project while the glue dried, so used several boxes of cartridges. They're heavier & easier to handle than cans of soup. Small project, concentrated weight, seems to be working fine.

    I've also used boxes of ammo as weights for bookbinding projects, like gluing up covers, and attaching boards to signatures...

    There's a lot of lead in 200 rounds of .45acp...

    I used to use microphone bags filled with .44 semi-wad-cutters to counterweight my boom microphones for my drum kit back when I was still a gigging musician!

    I use my Hi-Point to crack walnuts.
