Small leather ball bag
« on: April 18, 2022, 11:45:08 AM »
I just bid and won on Ebay for a small leather ball bag. Believe it a pocket bag for pistol. Anyone know anything about it. Seems to be in good condition with a pick attached.
Figure I will use for .32 (.310).  (See Pics)

I like it, but I don't think I've never seen anything like it before.
With that pick attached, I'm not so sure it would been a bag for a pistol. Perhaps more so for a rifle in a small caliber, or any caliber for that matter....I just don't know.
I'm sure there's others where who recognize it....like Beaverman, who makes a beautiful Ball Bag himself. And I'm guessing there's several others who know a lot more than myself about such things.
Anyway, I would personally use it for my .45 Longrifle and use the pick for the flash hole.

Congratulations on your new Ball Bag!

It looks like a LOT of thought & work went into making that - I wonder who the maker was.....  :)
