    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    That's a winner!! We also had the cast iron "drilled out" dummy grenades that were perfect for putting bangers inside and then lighting. We stopped that one day though when one must have become a bit weak from over use and it fractured in lumps all over the place causing a few stings and bruises!! Leon.

    One point to mention also is there is no weight in foam poly type heads and any mask will pull forward every time with the weight of the filter/breath value,so basically a waste of time,my 2 cents.............

    I've found that if you paint the styrofoam with a matt textured water based enamel that seals the head there are no problems. I've had a mask on one for a few months now and no worries. I agree if you don't put something heavy like a helmet on the form it does tilt forward as correctly mentioned above.
