    Boy howdy! you guys have some sweet kit. I think the misses might be a bit upset with me when she sees the shopping list you guys have helped inspire. By the looks of it, i have some catching up to do, and in a big way.

    Find something that you're good at making, and barter.

    I love your whole set-up, but because I'm in the market for one, I'm especially drawn to that bag. It's just beautiful, and right what I'm looking for for one of my rifles. Any help with telling us who made it?

    Now, Clay, that bag needs a bit of use to truly make it your own.

    Rain is historically accurate.

    Clay, I would say $20 and it is sold to me. Seriously, I don’t have a good idea what a fair price would be but it is very nice.

    Thanks, but I will have to turn down your offer. Added info: it is machine sewn on an antique upholstery singer treddle machine (1912 Singer 31-15) using 138 nylon thread
    made to withstand some abuse. It measures 7 in. tall x 5 in. wide anda 1 in. gusset. The adjustable strap is long enough to fit the largest person. I am also finishing up on a large belt bag. I will post photos of it also.
    Thanks again for input

    Clay, I was kidding on the $20 price. It should be worth much more but I really don’t have an idea.

    If you hand stitched it, you should ask about 40 bucks. Good luck on your bags.

    Thank you. I had planned on hand stiching the next one, but I wanted to try the machine first.
    Thanks again.

    Very sharp-looking equipment, John, especially your dark bag. When I look for one, yours will be a good example.

    I don't want to take away from the OP's subject. But what also piqued my interest was your photo of those knives in sheaths (6th photo). I have a special hand-forged knife which I think might be suitable to carry. Not certain as it's from a completely different historical era than my cap & ball pistol, and also of a foreign design. Might this blade hang cool-looking next to a muzzleloader bag? Seems to me to be okay. I've not researched to learn if there are historically accurate knives, which were then used.

    Just a reminder - Rule #36 forbids asking "what is it worth?" for self-made products. It's worth hanging onto. ;-)
