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!

Shot Bag #66

With the cancellation of events and some down time I decided I would make a new shot bag for myself.
I made the bag to look the same as my old one, the only difference is I added a gusset 1" wide tapering down to 1/8 “and made it deeper about 1”. The strap is 1/4” wider because a friend gave me a hand made brass buckle to use on my bag. It’s a nice little bag. I’m just not sure on the size, it looks BIG! Well turkey season is coming up fast so I will give it some woods time and see if I like it.
