TOO Many POSSIBLES Bags.....

I Yard Sale EVERY Saturday and, fortunately, take the pickup on my rounds. I have acquired a dozen nice, leather, possibles bags in the 50-cent to One Dollar range. I now have 19 on establishment. I also got a Deer Carrier gizmo with a bicycle wheel to the front for $2.00.

I instruct muzzleloader wannabees here on the farm and give each student a nice leather possibles bag (gratus) because the gun room is nearly full of possibles bags.

Cabela's Possibles Bags run $60-$85.00. Mine are better, cheaper and have more pockets. You ML guys: Go Yard Saleing.

buckhunter,

Well, yes and no. It depends on what is inside a nice leather shoulder bag.

You can not make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, but you can make a possibles bag out of a leather purse. Works for me and my hat off to you for introducing people to traditional muzzleloading.

popplecop,

I find the nice leather purses make great possibles bags because they have nice pockets inside for tools, etc. Regular possibles bags that I have examined were just a pocket and stuff gets comingled.
