    I was looking for an ammo cuff for my .44 magnum Chiappa Takedown. Found a guy, (facebook) messaged him, and sent him my payment. Weeks, and weeks, go by... nothing. I get impatient, message him back. Nothing... Then he says he's down with covid.

    I start looking elsewhere. (Did I mention I was a bit impatient?) Come to find out those "shotgun card" style ammo holders can be had in other calibers. Ordered me up a couple, and they were here in a few days. Kinda digging how I can do my lever gun like my shotgun... rip off the empty, and slap on 10 more rounds. Way cheaper than leather too...

    I have looked at the leather ones. Really like the look, but not the price tag. Especially since I would need one for .30-30, .44M, .45C and
    .45-70.

    I have a nylon / elastic one for 12ga and it is handy.

    My belt leather ammo covered carrier will be 42 years old this deer season and I've made them for most of my hunting party. No one has ever dropped or lost a cartridge from them. The ammo doesn't get wet, full of snow, mud, or anything else. I bought the pattern and supplies from Tandy leather. I suppose you might find them complete at a gun shop or on the internet, but it was fun making them and every one likes a keepsake as time goes on.

    The one I liked was a lace on, combo butt cover, cheek pad, shell holder for $125.

    Never thought about looking for a pattern.

    I bought a leather holster kit that had been discounted (I'm a tightward cheapskate) because of open package. I believe it was purchased and returned. Was missing the lacings and part of instructions. I did enjoy making the holster. It turned out pretty good. Grandson uses it for Cowboy Action.

    I may have to look into this for a retirement craft.
