Thermometer Strips

Do you guys know where I can get those little plastic strips that you stick to things that tell the temperature of the thing it is stuck to?

I bought some from Midway once and put one on the barrel of my 300 Win Mag right in front of the chamber.

Was easy to tell if the barrel was getting hot and when it had cooled back down enough to fire again.

I don't think Midway carries them any more and I have no idea where to get them now.

You may want to try a local medical supply company. They may have something very similar, and probably much cheaper. The temperature range may be somewhat limited, but that depends on your application.

Let me know how this works out. It sounds like a good idea.
