How about a GlockTalk Challenge Coin?

Hey, Eric.. As if you didn't have enough to do..

I've found that over time, and from various sources (like NRA, several Gun Clubs, SAR, American Sniper etc.,) I have accumulated a nifty Challenge Coins Collection.

It would be very nice to add a GlockTalk coin..

If anybody else is interested, and has the resources, perhaps Eric could get some of these minted? They ought to be worth $25 or more..

Thoughts??

I had to shift to a metal tackle box for my coins. The plastic one broke from the weight

I'd be interested in one. If enough sell, they're generally $10-$20/each, though.

I've seen some very creative artwork from GlockTalk Members..

Perhaps somebody'd be willing to take a shot at a design..

Ten bucks, twenty or $25 doesn't really matter, since it's for a good cause.. eh?

First we gotta get Eric interested in the idea..

Or agree to at least the prototype to start

Since Challenge Coins have a somewhat Military background, I would have thought there would be more support (considering we do have a number of Miltary folks on Board)..

Chime in..

Even negative thoughts are welcome..

Maybe.. but this Thread's not gettin much..

OK, Eric.. time for your unbiased, considering your Military background, input on this..

Good idea, or bad idea?




I just know that if Eric likes it, everyone will like it.. kinda works that way..

Eh, not such a great idea. I'd put it along the lines of the CCW badge, aka useless trinket...

Besides, who really cares about "proving" membership on an internet board?

I think it's a good idea. I'd get one.

The only negative comment so far is from someone who signed up today and managed to get a thread deleted, not just locked, but erased.

So what do we need to do to get this ball rolling?

Thanks for adding your Support guys..

But I think we need to give Eric a chance to catch up on his work, and when he's ready, I'm sure he'll chime in..

No matter what, if this is gonna happen, it will require Erics support, and approval..

So..

Keep those suggestions coming..

Dog Pile this thread with ideas on what should be on the Coins..
