    Default Selling Carbon Tet Grenades

    Getting married in a few months (bad idea I know, lol) and need some extra cash for the ceremony. So unfortunately for me, I am selling my carbon tetrachloride grenade collection.

    1 Shur Stop (hanging/fusible link)
    1 AutoFyrStop (wall mount/automatic)
    1 Red comet (wall mount)

    All 3 come with the original glass grenades INTACT with solution inside AND hanger or wall mount.

    Very rare to find these still intact with the Carbon Tet inside.

    $75 a piece or $200 for all 3 + shipping.

    Keep them and not get married.

    $200.00 isn't extra when you are getting married That will pay for the wedding night hotel room!

    Pretty cool!

    FYI, might help if you posted your location. Pretty sure you can't ship these in the mail and buyers would have to pickup.

    If I had a spare $75 around, I would love to have one. Good luck with the marriage and selling these.
    Nothing is as unimpressive as someone who is unwilling to learn.

    I'm in Jacksonville, FL. From what I understand, I can ship these under the Limited Quantity Exemption in place by the DOT. I myself received 2 of them through the mail, albeit years ago.

    She "NEEDS" this and this and ...... or the special day just won't work, you're getting high maintenance. High maintenance never goes away or gets better.

    Help her find a second job.

    Default Don't do it

    I was happily married for 3-1/2 years… 3-1/2 out of 21 isn’t a good average. And they were not all simultaneous. Those 3-1/2 years were an accumulation of a day here and a day there.

    I don't know but...

    you might want to consider keeping them handy in case one of you catches on fire before the big day.

    If you still have them after the big day, you might still need them when she lights your @$$ up one day for not paying attention to her.

    All valid points, LOL... but I'm still taking the plunge. So if you or anyone you know wants some great collector pieces, send 'em my way!

    I wasn't trying to talk you out of it...

    I think everyone should pursue things over their heads from time to time...

    Think of it as expanding your knowledge base...

    Are these the "Fit-One", "Fit-Two", "Fit-Three", and "Fit-Four"?
