    Hello Everyone,

    Every so often you will see an operational photo or a movie depiction of a soldier or SWAT member carrying a shotgun in a back scabbard (mounted to a backpack of vest) in lieu of a rifle or submachine gun carried conventionally with a sling of some sort. Even the current Blackhawk catalog has an image like this in one of their posters for sale, but they do not sell such a unit as far as I can tell.

    I've seen such a scabbard for sale only once. It was a standalone unit with straps like a backpack. It was designed to carry a short shotgun or carbine for defense against bears. I think Tex Shoemaker put it out. Not sure though.

    Can anyone shed any light where such scabbards, stand alone or for attachment, can be bought?

    Thanks for the help.

    - Anthony

    BHI makes a breaching tool scabbard, which is for hooligan tools, wrecking bars and shotguns.

    Akrady: no I am looking for something to attach or already be mounted to a backpack.

    Andrew: Looked at their website but it has too many pockets. Looking for a dedicated scabbard.

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    I'd stick with Eberlestock packs and their scabbards. Their quality is excellent, they are very supportive of the military, and when comments have come in to him from down range, he has actually listened to suggestions and upgraded his designs accordingly. Sportsman's Guide has some cool stuff once in a while but unless it's actual military surplus, I think the stuff they mainly deal in is designed for the airsoft crowd as far as quality goes. Cheaper and if your butt doesn't depend on it, it's good enough but not something I would trust my life with.

    Google shotgun scabbard and there's about a dozen sources that pop up.

    We have two differnat models. One is made by Bulldog Equipment, the other is from Eagle. The Bulldog is good for mounting on your ruck. I haven't stocked any of the Eagles yet, but they seem to more designed for mounting on your belt.

    Contact info to purchase "bulldog"?

    That picture of the "bulldog" looks about just the right fit for my pistol grip Mossberg 500.

    I cannot find it anywhere else on the web by google, amazon, or other vendor sites.

    Could you provide contact information or who to seek to purchase the bulldog scabbard, DMR?

    Thanks.

    get the Eagle Industries. Lifetime warranty, very high quality. I am not sure about the Bulldog though.

    i have one of the UTGs from cheaper than dirt and honestly it cant be any better or worse built than whatever the "pros" are useing it will hold my mossberg nicely but what i usualy use it for is my dads old glenfield 30-30 seeing as how it doesnt have sling studs

    the UTG model has a shoulder strap and can be attatched to any MOLLE device like a backpack or tactical vest
