The Lucky Bag...Unusual Items for Muzzleloading and ?
« on: June 19, 2013, 11:40:53 PM »


Since the early days of the United States Navy, every vessel in the fleet has put to sea with a locker known as the “lucky bag.”  During the voyage, any personal items lost by sailors or found adrift about the ship are stowed in the lucky bag.  Then, from time to time, unclaimed items are auctioned off to the rest of the crew.  Since sailors are consummate collectors of the unusual, the opening of the Lucky Bag is always cause for much interest aboard ship.

This site is inspired by that tradition.  The Lucky Bag is a collection of items — some useful, some beautiful, some odd — that don’t always follow a common theme.  Though at present most of our products are accouterments for muzzleloading firearms, it’s difficult to predict what might appear in this space from week to week.

Whether you are a mariner, an artisan, a muzzleloading enthusiast, or one of the simply curious,  we hope you’ll enjoy rummaging through The Lucky Bag.

"No man will be a sailor who has contrivance enough to get himself into a jail; for being in a ship is being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned... a man in a jail has more room, better food, and commonly better company."
Dr. Samuel Johnson, 1780
