    I would avoid sticker.com I ordered two rolls of the release stickers on DEC. 18 2008, and have not seen them yet. I have made several phone calls and had to leave a message, I also sent numerous emails. I have received no response to either.

    I agree with "Big Dave". I ordered a roll of stickers from sticker.com and after e-mail inquiry and several phone calls filed a dispute claim with my credit card company. No response by e-mail or phone from the vendor. They charge for priority mail shipping which is 2-3 days and after the attempts to resolve the status of the order I filed the non-receipt of merchandise claim with Mastercard. Avoid this vendor.

    I make my own. I use 1 1/2" orange Tardots and a black ballpoint pen to write a big, bold "R" on it. They work fine.

    Just a question and not trying to be a smart a$$ but why do you need a RELEASE sticker anyway ?? I would think you could remember it was a release ?

    So OTHERS who handle the shotgun will know that. It may be required by some club regulations or by some state laws.

    Ricky The only others that handle my gun are close friends and they shoot a release . If I don,t know you and you have my gun the least of your problem is the trigger . Ask and I will let you shoot my stuff but I will let you know it,s a release trigger .

    Reason why?........I, along with several others, who all shoot the same guns, are teaching young shooters at various clubs, how to shoot and when I replace a pull trigger with a release, I want to be able to be sure, from a safety perspective, the new shooter is taught how to properly handle the gun, by identifying the gun from looking at the sticker. There a eight of these guns, and they all have same exterior features, even pull triggers versus release triggers are not always that easlily identified through a training course without extra safety measures taken, besides keeping the gun open at all times when not shooting, etc, etc,etc........ Thanks, Rob G.

    ALF-99 & FlaLagarto:

    Certain guns (Bt-99, M-12, TM1, 1100, etc.) are a dime a dozen. It isn't uncommon to have several in the same rack at the same time.

    Anybody that's spent much time around gun clubs has seen someone pick up the wrong gun and take the line with it. It's more than a little interesting when the offender 'sets' a pull trigger or pulls a release only to have it go off at the wrong time.

    I expect someone to jump in at this point and protest, "that should never happen!" I agree. Such things shouldn't happen. They wouldn't if everyone paid attention to what they were doing. But... they don't and it does.

    A release sticker doesn't guarantee someone won't pick up the wrong gun but it helps.

    ALF-99,I have seen people pick up a gun they thought was theirs and was not.

    I think this is a let's be safe issue.

    I have stickers on my gun to warn the other person.

    "At my club an elderly shooter picked up the wrong gun put a shell in it and to his surprise it went off"

    He would have had to pull the trigger before he released it. What's the big deal? Why was he pulling on a trigger with a shell in the gun if he didn't want the gun to fire?

    Send me a sase and I will send you a couple that say release. You will need to add your own adhesive to them.

    I had some stickers made at a sign shop. They are very good quality and vinyl laminated.They are orange and 1 inch in diameter with a large "R" and the word release on them. I need $1.50 each to get my money back. Contact me at the above web site and I'll give you my address. I sure you will like them. Make sure you put release stickers in the subject line.
