Cowboy mounted shooting ballon sticks.
If anyone is interested. I am making the ballon sticks to practice mounted shooting. I have extra stuff to make them with as I got what I needed in bulk. So if anyone wants a set (10) or more let me know.

$25 plus shipping. That is $10 less then what you can buy them on line.

Hey, great! I'd like 20 if possible, they are a Christmas gift if you can get them done before then. If not, we'll it's winter, not like we can ride much. :)
Can you tell me what size PVC pipe to buy to fit them in? We're pretty much new to this but need to practice.

Thanks. email is pnthorse at gmail dot com
What are the paper wads for?

Can you post a pic? I may be interested in getting my husband some.

If you go to the store and look at the 1/2 in PVC and the end plugs for the 1/2 anything larger then that would work. Then you take the poles that you are going to fit the sticks down into to and drill a hole and put a screw through with a nut on the other side so they will not fall down once the balloon is popped.

Will see if I can find a picture of them. Will take about a week or so to get them out.

Also my paypal account is If you can do the personal transfer and do not indicate you are buying something so I do not have the big paypal fees that would be great. Also get me your zip so I can figure out what postage will be. There is a couple different ways to send them and depending on where you are will depend on the cost.

My zip is 58503
What are the paper wads used for?

nrhareiner 11-26-2012 02:03 PM

The paper wads are for the banks. They are over powder wads so you can reload your brass. A lot less then buying blanks from people. Although if you are interested in buying blanks I can figure out what it costs and get you some. LC brass is expensive.

As fore shipping a flat rate box is probable the lest expensive which is $15 if I remember correctly. If you want so wads there would be no extra shipping as it is on rate for what ever you can get into the box. just let me know.
