PS Can someone please forward this to the Archers List, Missle List, and
any combat lists. Thank ya much!
Due to some quality control issues there have been some recent changes in
the production and distribution of Baldar Blunts. There have been three errors
in production, in SOME of the blunts currently in use.
1) Some blunts have been found to have a defective material used in the
production of the nylon disc. This has been solved and will no longer happen in
the future as each batch will be proofed and inspected after the run. This disc
shatters when used, thus ruining the blunt. This shatter usually happens as
soon as the blunt is seated by firing into a wall, and the blunt fails by
shoving the shaft into the rubber cone, disconnecting it from the back of the
blunt. Any reasonable inspection of the blunt after fire will reveal the
problem. I will gladly replace 2 for 1 of the blunts that have defective
discs, upon receipt of the defective blunts.
2) Some blunts have been found to have been manufactured with a lighter but
less elastic material that causes splitting of the neck upon seating the blunt.
This is a defect that appears immedialty upon installation and will be
replaced 1 for 1 upon receipt of the defective blunt.
3) Lastly, some few blunts were made that used a fiberglass neck for a wood
shaft. This caused too tight a fit and will be replaced 1 for 1.
All replacement blunts can either be exchanged for good blunts at Jolly
Sven's Bargain Pillage or directly through me.
In addition, as a result of the new quality control procedures, all future
blunts will be dated by year with a two year guarantee on the materials and
workmanship. In order to decrease storage and stock costs a limited number of
colors will be offered. Red, Blue, Black, Gold, and Green will be the only
Lastly, due to our friends at OPEC the cost of plastic and rubber has exploded.
The new cost of the blunts will be as follows:
<50 = $2.25 each
50-499 = $2.00 each
>500 = $1.75 eachI am so sorry that the cost has gone up. I have kept it the same for the
last four years, and the Arabs gave me no choice.
