Snap caps are expensive, and they always get lost, and you don't want to store your .22 cocked.
Solution, number #4, dry wall anchors. About $4 per 100.

Hey Trap - its good to know an o dog can still learn new tricks. Gives me hope.

They work well even if their edges deform easier than a snap cap. But for the price in bulk, who cares?

I'm out a priceless family heirloom, and I'm sickened by it.

Hope you get your gun back. You sent the stock to him.. i suggest taking a road trip to the adress you sent it to...

Don't know the story here....but I'm pretty sure there are probably two sides....

I would also guess that this is not the format or a proper use of forum rules to call someone out like this...at least I hope not....

So before someone asks to move this to the C&R forum so we can choose seconds and have a duel, maybe the aggrieved party can send a letter, ask for arbitration, go to small claims court or ?????????????

You probably should start a separate thread in general gun discussion. There has been various threads there about gunsmithing gone wrong. One involved being "chazzed" if you want to look that up.

Or that gunsmith I think called like Gunsmith Dan where a CGNer actually went to his house and banged on the doors and windows and threatened his family!

I agree, wrong place to bring this up. Go through the courts or go see him personally, but we don't need to know all of this.

Lets hope this turns out well. The OP seems to have been a respected member here. I know some of his post on the "Winchester" thread have been very helpful to me.
