Arrow Dog Tags

Hi pple,
First at all i wanna say hello because I'm new over here.

I got a question for you:do you know any web or place where to buy a good quality Dog Tag?I've seen alots of webs through the Internet,but they look so badly that I wouldn't give them my credit card number So the question is:Have you ever bought a dog tag over the internet and if the answer is yes,where from?If someone's from Spain,could he tell me a place where to buy it?
Thanks a lot.
BlackEagle.

Hello Black Eagle
the only time I got Dog Tags were the ones I was issued with, You should get two dog tags and one bead chain, with the black or sandy coloured (depending on your theatre of ops) rubber backs for the one in your boot laces and one around the neck on a bead chain. All dogtags are normal steel. Dunno about quality ones, all the same to me.. Are you not issued with any?

Thanks for the answer Exo1.

Unfortunately I'm not American so I cannot join the American Army.I just wanted the dog tags for myself,as a civilian.I might join the Spanish forces later if I have that opportunity.
Regards,
BlackEagle

Try military.com. Go to their shopping section and search for "dog tags". I don't know that vendors will ship overseas though.

Hi BlackEagle,
I am not American either, but take your point on the tags. The others have good suggestions for online purchase, but you can get standard steel ones (with no details punched onto them) at any Military Hardware Surplus store. Try [url]www.ballchain.com[/url], or google search Dogtag, and you will not be short of choices.

Go to this site, [url]http://www.actiongear.com[/url]. Type "dog tags" in the search field. They are mostly stainless steel and they stamp your info on it for you.

Dog tags are a fashion statement nowadays.... personally they were a part of my work, and I would not wear them out to the pub at home...
