SUBJECT: A Little History On Saint Louis' Shot Towers.


You folks are shooting lead projectiles. Did you ever wonder about how or who got such a business started in the New World and who pushed the business all over the World.

I read this information by my good friend Charles E. Hanson, Jr. Gave it a little thought and decided to make some shot bags and see how they sold off my blanket at the rendezvous. Surprising they went over big along with the Shot Tower lead bars (stamped with five of the original names in each bar (cast from antique original molds of each firm).

In those days we were always trying to come up with some product that the other traders didn't have. In time we would sell wholesale to the others at a fair price. Fun times that finally ended with the Chinese invading the market.
