    Were putting on a car show in May to benefit the Wounded Warrior Program...

    Im not a big on trophys, but I know some people will be expecting them. Last year we just gave out plaques. I have some old 20mm dummy shells laying around and thought they would make a cool/unique trophy. Any Ideas on how to make them one (no I dont want to weld them to a cam gear, etc...) I was thinking about getting some stickers/engraving done on these.....

    or maybe just polishing them (see the bottom one)

    any ideas?

    or am I just being difficult?

    They are cool, but I have to agree maybe not the best choice for this venue.

    Polish them up and drill a hole thur the back of the casing and make key chains out of them as long as theres no gunpowder in them.

    Godspeed
