    We are haveing a two day registerd shoot here in S.E.Michigan and we want to give away buckles as trophys. I was wondering you would you use to get them at a real reasonable price. This is our first real registers shoot and im not sure how good the turn out will be. I do not want to bankrupt our club for these buckles and then not make enuff money to cover thier cost. any suggestions would be very helpful. Curt DuVall Brest Bay S.C.

    Curt, we have used Jim Beasley from Tilden Trophies several times. Take a look at http://www.tildentrophies.com. Prices were very reasonable & work was top notch. Harv.

    Curt, Shamrock Leathers have some nice belt buckles we get them for National Trapshooting Day and sometimes for our Club Championships. I think they are around $19.00 or so. They are nice leather buckles. MJ

    john,
    i am glad you got a good one maybe that Montana weather is not as hard on recycled pepsi cans as the fl weather is. And again you might have got one that had only been recycled once. I think we here in fl get those that pepsi recycles 3 or 4 times then of course theres not much left.....and thats what we get NOT MUCH

    I have been dealing with Anacortes Brass Works 360 293-4515 for very nice brass buckles/key fobs/money clips that the shooters enjoy. The buckles are not the big rodeo style, some shooters overhangs prevent use of! Mike

    Spray you trophy belt buckles with clear laquire (sp) paint. they will never tarnish or turn green.

    Only problem with Tilden is that they mostly use that German Silver - which is nothing more than a hunk of copper, nickel and zinc - it has NO silver in it. My main complaint with cheap German Silver buckles is that they do not wear well - just not the same as silver.

    Don't get me wrong - Tilden makes absolutely fabulous buckles - as long as they stay with Sterling Silver. However, Bill Mains get my vote. His work is outstanding.

    Isee why you have not had any green............ you have yours in a air tight box and only look at it every 2 and 1/2 years and i guess that would work............BUT dont try using it or your done.... some of that german silver will start showing and i guess what can one expect for 3 bucks....keep that box closed
