"I used a short piece of PVC pipe and a few fittings to keep our pistol grip vaccine syringes secure and clean," writes Wayne Licking of Thedford, Neb. "You can even have a needle in place."

Mr. Licking says the cost of materials was under $5. The syringe cover can be cleaned with soap and
water if needed and can even carry extra needles.

"I can carry it on my saddle or in a pick-up without fear of bending the needle or breaking the barrel."
