    Anyone know a source for Shamrock Leather Magnetic Pads? I sent an order to Shamrock Leather & they told me that they weren't taking any individual orders until Sept. I have used the square ones & the round ones made of foam rubber but they tend to tip if I place the barrel near the edge.

    Make your own pad out of the same material that sign makers use for magnetic signs to stick on car doors, etc. Very inexpensive, can be cut into any shape desired, durable, flat, and will protect the end of your barrel just fine. Available at Office Depot, or online at the above website..... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    I don't think there is another outlet for that item. I have seen kids leading their parents to the Shamrock tent at the Grand and pointing to the pads so I would guess that is the demand they are filling. Every kid at the Grand had one and they part of a group, 4H,etc.

    You are right, the foam pads roll over and the barrel hits the concrete. That won't happen with the Shamrock, I have one. They will stamp you name on the pad for free.


    Dan, have you actually used one those? I haven't tried the exact item you posted but the common stick on refrigerator magnets of that material with business logo won't work.

    They will be at the Grand in August. The pads are $20 on their website so I'm sure that's what they will be at the Grand. If you can wait and you won't make it, I'll grab you one then. They are the most powerful magnetic gun pad I've ever seen. If the wind blows it off your barrel, you probably have far more to worry about anyway because you are probably in a EF5 Tornado or Hurricane. They are that strong.
