    I figured it was appropriate that this was finished so close to the 4th of July. I had a fella out of Texas by the name of Danny contact me in the early part of last year. Danny wanted a rifle cuff for a Marlin rifle in 30-30 his grandad recently passed down to him made as a tribute of sorts. We talked about it off and on for a while and initially it was just some stamping work and that was that. Then he decided a few weeks later he wanted a sling. Few weeks later he called and asked if we could figure out how to put 'don't tread on me' on it right as I was finishing his first initial piece. When I got the ball rolling he decided he wanted a belt..then..and then...and then...and then again. Danny kept telling me don't send anything until it's all ready. He knew that his grandad was going to be tickled pink and didn't want him finding something without him having the chance to show it all. I finally cut Danny off on additions when he said 'oh yeah, I need a few ammo pouches and an ammo slide.' Any further ideas will go onto the next rig he decides he wants :p All of his pieces aren't shown but there are 22 in total. The belt was also a time consumer at 56" to center hole.

    So I bid you farewell old friend in form of leather and the project that I thought would never end. It was nice knowing you and fun while it lasted but you need to move along to Texas where anxious hands are a waitin.'

    "Don't Tread on Me"

    I once knew a first-class boatswain's mate that had that tattooed on his forearm.

    Fantastic work! If you don't mind me asking, how much would a gadsden sling set someone back?

    100% depends on level of intricacy. His is probably a tier 2, 3 being about the craziest thing I could think up, and that sling and cuff combo done like that ran around $300.

    He placed another order after he received it that will be a tier 3 rig.
