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!

Weekend at Pricketts Fort

I spent this past weekend at Pricketts Fort for the 2014 School of the Longhunter, where I enjoyed listen to presentations given by Matt Wulff, Michael Galban, Mark Hersee, Suzanne Larner, and others and also Mark Baker. They all did a great job, and I came away with some great info on the 18th century.
I met Mark Baker this past August at he CLA show but only briefly due to the large amount of people there to see him. This weekend I got to camp and spend time around the fire with him and Ehrin Ehlert, and Steve Gengelbach all a great bunch of woodsmen.
