A Step In The Right Direction - Rifle Case/scabbard

Recommended Posts

There are the things we do because we need to pay the bills, and things we do that we love. When we're really lucky, we get to do them both. I'm fortunate that I get to do what I love for my day job, but this runs a close second. And one day may, this may just pay the bills.

This is my first post like this in the forum. I've never taken any formal classes in leather, just what I've learned here, youtube, books, videos, etc. And a lot of trial and error. So I figured it was time to show what I've learned. I have been sewing together portfolios, knife rolls, etc., to pay for my tools and leather, but this is really where my heart lies.

Based on the will ghormley scabbard pattern, modified to let the saddle attachment straps serve as a shoulder strap/carry handle. All hand stitched and solid brass hardware. Fully lined with 3 oz veg tan.

Wow that looks like a lot of work. I'm not sure I have the attention span to handle a project that big. Great work, I'd love to see more.

Thanks all, it really came together. There are a couple things I'd already change but for the most part I'm very happy with the results.

Well done. I especially like the the fact that you can use it for storing as well as on the saddle.
