Small Bag for a Small Rifle and Horn

Kangaroo leather with a handmade brass buckle after a Virginia dug original in my collection. The little bag has a gusset and a rear internal pocket.

I posted this elsewhere but thought I should re-post it here as well....

Busy these days.....haven't had much time to work on any of this.  However, James Rogers just sent the little kangaroo leather bag he made to go with my grandson's rifle.  I can't tell you all how perfect it is !!!! ( As is all of James' work  :) ;) ) I need to come up with a strap for the little horn and do the scrimshaw work yet.  For scale, here is a picture of a bag James made for me (also of 'roo leather) with one of my horns and one of my rifles.  Also shown are the little horn, the new little bag, and the scaled down rifle.  The second picture is a closer view of the beautiful little bag and the little horn. 

When I opened the box that James sent the bag to me in, my wife immediately asked if I could hire James to make another copy of the little bag for her !!!!

Thank you again, James !!!

The pictures of the bags, horns and rifles side by side shows how stunning they are and is sure to be a gift to be remembered for both grandfather and grandson. Once the horns are scrimshawed I hope there will be more photos and perhaps the owners wearing and holding the gear and rifles too?
