Well, keep it in mind for next year.

I had one question for next year. Ive flown with guns before, but how would I get my ammunition out there? Would I just arrange to buy some from another person attending or just shipped my stuff?

I finished painting the haversack, let it set overnight next to my woodstove and in the morning went over it with a stiff brush to rough up some of the shine. Im happy with how it turned out.

Here it is will my kit so far, my sack coat will be in next month. Im going for the bootees next.


Nice...is the a WPG prairie belt?

Is that a cadet rifle?

You can travel with it or you can ship it to someone out there or maybe pick up at UPS?

Its is a WPG belt, I added three lines of stitching to the end, it was my first try at sewing leather so the lines arent exactly straight. I also had to do some finishing work on the belt plate, so it would line up correctly. No it isnt a cadet, its a standard 52'' OAL rifle.

What was up with the belt plate?

The plate was rough cast and the two ends didn't line up properly but it was an easy fix.

My rifle isn't exactly perfect, it has the M79 rear sight.

Thanks for the info....how did you find the sizing?  I have bought cartridge belts on line, gone by the makers sizing recommendation and have found them a little too small.

The sizing seemed to be accurate.
