    I have some old shot bags. While going thru them, I found an old Lawrence Shot bag that has the little figure of the "Dutch Boy" on it.

    This is the same picture used on Dutch Boy Paints.

    Does anyone know the connectiion?

    Yes, There is a connection. Dutch Boy paints were partner with Lawrence shot. Since Dutch Boy paint was a major user of lead in their paint. Lawrence shot was a sideline for the left overs.

    I asked the same question many months ago only my bags were Remington. The same relative explanation was given to me then but I believe the company was Olin. I only found three bags marked that way out of about 50.

    National Lead Industries is where you'll find the connection between Dutch Boy and Lawrence. I worked for Nation Lead of Ohio in the late 80's, but we processed uranium. And that stuff will really mushroom a target. Gary Williams

    Ha HA I get it. That was a good one!
