I'm purchasing chamber safety flags for all of my guns at home. Just wondering if there is any forum favorites (or least favorites).

Thanks,

why buy chamber flags....when for the same price...you can buy a pack of zip ties, and make 10 of them

just take 2 ties and zip them together as shown.......work great and cost pennies.


either that or a spool of weed whacker line cut into 12" lengths also work great.

I like the slide release.

Oh, and teaching everyone around you to check if a gun is loaded before they pick it up.

Twice.

Kleen-Bore makes some nice flags if you're purchasing.

Unless you have a falling-block (Ruger No. 1, Browning High Wall, or similar) I'm not sure there is much difference between the flags with the straight vs. those with bent inserts.

These work with falling-block actions -

Chamber safety flag (http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=16651/Product/AR_15_CHAMBER_SAFETY_FLAG)

while the style with the straight insert just fall out if you have to stand the rifle on its butt with the action open.

I use these for my pistol shooting (flags are required at a bullseye match)

I like the one that I got with my carbine from the CMP. Never use it though. Here's their link:

Zip Ties are the simple, cheap, easy, replaceable, available, visible, and fast way to have chamber flags.

You can even fold over the tip of the barrel-inserting zippy and have it not fall out easily.

I like the zip tie idea! I'll try that.

They come in all colors and you can toss a handful under the foam in all your gun cases and make a flag OR tamper-seal a gun/case on the spot.

I cut lengths of weed whacker cord and make a "flag" at one end with orange duct tape. I use these in my pistol courses as they are easily visible.

I also made dozens of these for use at the rifle range of the local boy scout camp.
