Real late to the party on this, but too bad. Was a great time as always. Really wished I could have stayed later, but as I told Phil on my way out, "I'll be back next year, with more people and a tank." I shit you not, #YOLOstock will rise. See you on the field.

I guess I'll throw my 2 cents in here. Once an accurate scan is made of an external shell component is made it could be used with resin to cast a block of resin with an outer pattern on it. That could then be inserted in to pre-made fixture and spots could be machined in place relatively quickly and inexpensively. If you make the inside a blank canvas so to speak, you could drop in internals which are "self-contained" and can be swapped in place easily. At least that's one method I am thinking of. Another is injection molding. If you have a relatively simple design the mold is not nearly as expensive. It gets expensive when you need all kinds of ejector pins, super high tolerances, and fancy designs. I work in a shop that makes molds for injection molding as well as does them. From my experience, this is what creates cost very fast. I have seen pieces the size of an eraser cost 200$ each, and there are 16 of them in some molds. Bottom line is injection molding IS a possibility if you plan ahead.

In Topic: dart storage?

I got a little over 500 USCs, about 3000 #6 Slugs, about 500 #8 Slugs, a variety of Stock darts, and about 300 Glow in the Dark China Darts. All stored in bins of some kind. Loose packing is key.

I am definitely interested in patches, stickers, and shirts. Mostly the patches and stickers, to put all over my gear. I think the prices Van has said would be acceptable. I think something with the logo and "No Barrel Taps, No Mercy" underneath would be really nice. I can do some research on potential costs.

Consider me a strong maybe. It is my sisters birthday, but maybe she'll tell me to get lost, haha.
