Lucky round, round in pocket idea?

So my brother carries a lucky round his coat pocket for last resort emergency situation on hypothetical speaking terms of a shootout and empty gun laying on the floor situation, I know I know what a kook haha

Is there such an item that is made to hold a single round? Like a paracord necklace that just has enough tension holding it in place to remove with a slight tug?

Could make for a cool accessory for a key chain?

Anyone?

Interesting, i carry a bullet pulled from a 7.62x54 cartridge in my pocket mostly just something to play with.

2 questions come to mind.

First- If you just happen to pick up an empty firearm up off the floor what are the chances that its the same caliber as his lucky round?

Second- If it is his empty handgun what is he hoping to accomplish with one round that an entire magazine couldnt?

I have seen small pill containers that could hold a single round but they screw together.

Tarant your thinking too far into the what if factor haha it's a 9mm round so good chance it could fit, and as you know all you need is one good placed shot to do the job.
It's also like you say, to fiddle with.

Does your brother carry a firearm, or just a round?

Only time I ever do that is when hunting, have never got to use my lucky round though. A friend of my dad that use to hunt with us had a buckle that was made to put cash in, he store his round in there with 3/4 of a cigarette. He said them 2 things could save his life.

Get an empty mini Altoids tin. Then advise him to read my sig line and think about it some.

"accessory for a key chain" ...Nope!

5 "Lucky" ones works well wrapped up in one`s wallet and more useful.
(9mm)

Well if a person is foolish enough to carry a round but no gun I sure hope they don't reproduce.
