 NEW !

I have added a new Pistol holster shoulder rig that allows our PH-1001 muzzle loader pistol holster to be worn by means of a strap over the shoulder instead of on a belt. I have seen an increase of orders on my pistol holster over the last few years and have had requests to make this product. If you have ever worn a 3 pound pistol on your hip holster you know that it feels like a 10 pound pistol in short order. It is also hard to carry a pistol on a belt holster when wearing a heavy long winter coat. This rig allows you to attach our pistol holster and many other pistol holsters  by removing one chicago screw. The strap is adjustable to fit your liking and the pistol can be tucked up under you arm to keep it safely out of the elements and out of your way. 



I have a new strap on Cheek Raiser designed to fill the needs of the long distance Black Powder 

Cartridge shooters using scopes on their period BP rifles and for the Scoped Military rifles such as 

M1A and M-14 or the Henry lever action rifles which require huge amounts of adjustment of the comb height.

This new cheek pad fills that need with adjustment from 3/4" up to 2". The base of this cheek pad with the soft

velcro loop material, laces securely to the butt and can be left attached for shooting with conventional open 

peep sights when the upper pad is removed. The upper pad is  Leather and Velcro Hook sandwiched with a proprietary material

and molded into a hard comb that once attached to the base by velcro becomes a solid rest. On the rear edge

of the pads base  is a graduated 1/8" reference gauge to adjust the bottom edge of the top pad to. This gives

the shooter a quick reference to make adjustments to the height of the top pad in conjunction with the height of

scopes when adjusting for distances or when going from open sights to using a scope. The top pad can also be

adjusted for CAST ON or CAST OFF which works great for early Winchester model 94's with offset mounted scopes.   There is no other cheek Pad on the market like this one.

  We are now offering our muzzle loading and shooting products in new leather that has a distinct primitive look and  we have teamed up with a tannery to produce this custom tanned  to our specifications to give our products the real look of primitive tanned and colored leathers more commonly found in hand tanned and constructed custom bags which bring much higher prices. We invite you to compare our quality of materials and construction with anyone making custom leather Hunting and possible bags and you will see our products are the best value and the best selection.

 Please click on the video link at the top of page to see an overview of some of my Traditional Leather Gear. Video is 21 minutes long and was made around 2014 so some of the products like knives and forged tools are no longer available due to those who made them for me have gone out of business. I have also dropped some of the products .


  Our line of muzzle loading leather Possibles Bags and muzzle loading accessories is our main business and continues to grow with the continued interest in the arts and crafts of the Pennsylvania Long rifle and associated accoutrements of the 17th, 18th and 19th century’s. We have supplied countless hunters, re-enactors and collectors since 1997 with authentic representations of this American and European art form. We have our leather custom tanned to our specifications then each bag is hand antiqued to give the look and feel of the products as they were made back when so they look the part when worn in period cloths. We use a custom tanned cowhide to our specifications in our products and machine sew them with heavy nylon thread so the product can be used and will last a life time to pass on to another generation. Our customers tell us their bags get better looking with age. All hardware is solid brass or solid iron.  See our activities page to see what trade fairs and shoots we will be attending as a vendor.  Send us a picture of you using one of our products and we will post it in the gallery page.

                                              SHOTGUN LEATHER BAGS





 We have been traveling to skeet, trap and Shotgun Sporting Clay events the last six years to develop a line of shotgun shooting bags and shotgun leather accessories. This is an ongoing project to come up with our own distinct product line, unlike the products found in the sport today. We are encouraged to find a customer base who appreciates fine leather products in a market dominated by nylon and canvas. We have developed our line from suggestions from shooters like you using our custom tanned leathers which truly sets them apart from the average commercial offerings. We offer custom labeling for corporate leagues and personalized initials on most of our shell bags.  Please come back to our website as we definitely will be adding more to this category in the future. Click on the Shotgun category on the left to see all our shotgun related products. 


We offer our products with company or club  LOGOS and personalized INITIALS for event prizes or giveaways. Contact Gary for information on how we can make your event prizes special.




We have the most complete and diverse line of copyrighted Cheek pads and Comb risers to cover most applications for the hunter, target shooter and tactical user. A proper cheek weld when sighting through a scope is critical to properly align your eye with the center of the scope to allow for a clear field of view and eliminate any parallax as most scopes parallax is set at one given distance. Having a proper fitting stock allows one to always have the same sighting alignment which allows for a correct sight alignment for precision shooting whether it be on the bench or out in the field. Having a proper cheek weld to the stock also eliminates creeping on the stock which results in scope to head contact on heavy recoiling rifles. There are too many variables when fitting a rifle / scope combination to an individual as not all scopes, rifles, mounts and people have the same dimensions. Mounting the proper height cheek pad to obtain the correct line of sight will greatly improve your shooting without expensive alterations to your guns stock. Our line of copyrighted fixed and adjustable versions of cheek pads to allow you to get the proper height you need on your particular gun. Click on the Accu-Riser cheek pad category on left side of page to see all our cheek pads we have to offer.




 Our neoprene cheek pad has been a winner in the shotgun shooting sport helping many people needing just a little more height to get a proper fit to their shotgun. Helps cushion the recoil too for a day’s toll of clay bird shooting with a heavy recoiling gun. We are also selling a tactical version to law enforcement agencies to help their officers in training and qualifying with heavy recoiling shotguns. Take a look at the gallery for applications on different rifles and shotguns. Send us your pictures of our pads on your gun and we will post it.
