Howdy folks Two Feathers here: Not a lot to say about this one. It’s pretty straight forward.

A while back a customer from the forum asked me if I could make a .32 cal. ball starter? I never tried it, so I said “I don’t know?” As it turns out, yeah I can, so here ya.’ go.

With the Fall squirrel season fast approaching (at least here in Pa.) this little ball starter will be a real boon to you small bore Squirrel hunters. Especially when that crisp fall air numbs you fingers during those morning hunts. No more fumbling around with one of those small caliber balls. Lay the ball on the bore and ram it home.

The price is $25.00 shipped. That’s $20.00 + $5.00 s&h. It will be shipped in a padded envelope. This ball starter measures 3.5” from the traditionally fire hardened tip, to the underside of the Elk Antler handle. The Antler Handle is securely fastened to the Hickory dowel for years of hard use, however only being a .32 caliber starter, you still can’t abuse it! I hand cut a concave recess in the tip before I fire hardened it. The recess will help keep that tiny ball centered in the rod. I have not signed this one yet. I’ll try to sign it before I ship it.

I cannot ship this item to Canada, due to Canadian Wildlife conservation and border laws. All prices for anything of mine is always in USD$’s and only to the 50 actual United States. Shipping outside the US is costly. Please PM for outside the US prices.



I prefer PayPal, but I also take postal or bank money orders. MO’s will add 1 week for travel time. I ship same day as funds are received, exceptions are Federal holidays, Sundays, PO hours, and severe weather.



As always, thanks for looking. If interested, PM me here.

God bless:

Two Feathers

Howdy folks:
Where are all the guys who PM'd me about making small caliber short starters for the Tree Rat season?
Squirrel season is about here in Pa. Not sure, but I think in a week or so?
This is the traditionalists starter. NO brass end, fire hardened tip! It has a carved radius in the tip to help center that tiny ball. I have the .32 cal. ball block (bullet board) listed as well. I thought I was helping the Squirrel hunters, guess not?
God bless:
