    That is awsome I think I may just have to get me one. I’m a class 3 copper fetishist so this makes me a tad hot under the collar.

    Hmmm, copper is in short supply these days along with ammuntion components. But hey, let’s make trinkets instead. Good call!

  • Mystick

    Copper is currently selling for about $3 a POUND, making this a horrible investment.

    Less trinkets more ammo production!
