So Mrs. Curmudgeon runs across this during an estate sale.
I'm smart enough to figure out is was for a front stuffer something and little more than that. The horn holds the powder, the wood on the right measures it and the piece of wood on the front in it's own holster measures the shot.
The gourd holds the shot. I took it to my friends home in tidewater VA. I got an expert opinion real quick! It was made out of a tire. I should have seen that! Then on to other matters.
Here is the wadding for a powder shotgun! Newspaper! In the bottom of the pouch.
Love it! Then here is the thing. I'm more scared of these than anything I have in the house.
So glad to have this piece of history here!
Anyone have a blackpowder shotgun? I have the stuff for it!
