Leather Shot Bags & Accouterments for the French & Indian War.
Welcome to my Blog! My name is Darrel Lang and I specialize in the Replication of Leather shot bags & Accouterments made in the colonies by the harness and saddle maker of the18th century. All items are hand sewn using waxed linen thread, dyed, then treated with neatsfoot oil & bee’s wax. The leather used is of veg. tanned cow hide 2-3 or 4-5 oz. weight. Other materials used are pig skin, period correct linens for the 18th century and iron or brass buckles. Please take a look at what I have to offer. Thank you!

From a long time ago





Then, 1982
This was me, at my very first event in the early fall of 1982. I spent the summer working on putting together my Mountain Man outfit and I was looking good!!
  Now 31 years later I am still try to put together a period correct outfit but, for a different place and time. I am now trying to be a early ranger of the 1750 French & Indian war, patrolling in Pennsylvanian.  And still looking good!!
Now, 2013
