Why don't you just stick with Charlie?  He sells em for pretty close to
his cost.  You can't get a better deal anywhere.  I bet even if you get
'em made, you won't get 'em so cheap.  I suppose if Charlie isn't making
anymore, then you'll have to find a new source.  I still think the
Schrapnelknobben is the best alternative. Email Paul Timmerman
