Default The "definitive" Bullet Button Tool

I am not the only one to come up with this idea, but I really liked it when I first saw someone post the idea and I made myself one the same day. Now that I started up my web store, I decided to go ahead and have these printed up as a promotional item and make them available to my customers.



http://riflegear.com/pc-192-15-rifle...llet-tool.aspx

This is an actual .223 round on a black, retractable badge reel printed up with my logo. It has a swivel alligator clip on the back so you can clip it to your belt or sling and you will always have a tool, no "the" tool (by CA DOJ definition - ha ha) within reach and out of the way when you drop it.

Even making the rounds myself to save money these things still cost way more than I would have liked, mostly due to the cost of screen printing such a small quantity (50 units). I was hoping I could offer these for around $2.50 each but as it is I am losing money at $4.49 each. Oh well, it was a fun project to work on. I am offering them with a Bullet Button as a combo for $28.99. Buy something else while at the store so you can justify the shipping cost

A. Commercial Sales!!

B. Just do a tax write off, with your company's name printed on it, it is a "MARKETING" item!! Just give them out!!

Awesome! Now I need an OLL AR.

I'll need to get one with a hex wrench for my FAL.

If I understand the situation correctly the bullet doesnt have to be the one chambered for the rifle. That being the case I'd get something smaller, like a 17hmr blank, and affix it to the back of a ring. Worn on the finger nearest the mage release, it should be fast, convenient and unloosable.

You should include a packet of powder and a primer. If thing gets real bad.. they can manufacture a loaded cartridge!

Nice, store it in your grip in case of emergency I was hoping to have these in hand by last weekend to give out as freebies to the Calgunners at Angeles range last Saturday. I'll keep a few in my range bag for the next time.

I definitely will be picking one of those up when I order my bullet button and lower parts kit in a few days. Looks awesome.

Just curious, for those of you that have bought the Bullet Tool have you had a chance to use it yet? Is it holding up to the rigors of abuse by the calguns commandos?
