Trying to load some pics for Homerifle.  Will load more , for some reason all my pics are loading  to downloads, not to pics.  Homerifle can chime in  and explain photos.

I got this bag from Marcruger to go with the rifle I finished up last year. Thought you guys might want to see it with Marc's great bag. Inspired from the brass barrel rifle that most everyone knows about and the sister rifle. I guess this is the redheaded stepchild!

Fascinating carving John. Now I see why you wanted the Join or Die bag to go with it. Very nice sir. God Bless, Marc

John,  You now need a Tim Crosby snake horn.  They are amazing.

Homerifle, man you need one of those snake horns. The one with the lighter color snake is a close match to the snake on your rifle.
Dig deep buddy and add that horn to your package, have Tim add a little scrimshaw to the base stating your ownership.
Man I have visions of that outfit being displayed.....!
Great outfit....

Another Crosby snake horn.  BTW, the horn with the light colored snake will never be for sale.   :D

Marc, that's very tempting. I like this one over the other two however I'll probably use an original antique horn.

Guys, only the second of those snake horns lives at my house.  Tim is quite prolific in the snake field, even making a snake cane not long ago.  Quite the talent that Mr. Crosby.
