SBS scabbard

I'm in the process of working on a short barrel shotgun scabbard for 12.5"-14" shotguns since everything on the market seems to be for 18"+ barrels.

The decision I need to make is if I should go with a basic design (with high quality material and made in Canada) that would retail for aprox $50 or go all out with tons of padding, padded straps, MOLLE, etc. the draw back is extra material, extra time and more wasted material which translates into higher cost (aprox $100-$125).

This is the first one we made that I am currently testing.

After talking to a bunch of people I am going to go ahead with the more basic one. There will be a few minor changes including the addition of grommets for attaching the scabbard to a bag and a more ergonomic strap placement (to sit better and more comfortable). This will also allow an 8.5" model to be made with minimal changes.

Is this just used to carry the shotgun on one's person?



Why not just use a sling?

Yup, for carrying it and also doubles as a case. Since we cannot carry handguns a lot of people carry shotguns for animal protection. The idea is that scabbards are much more comfortable while still allowing quick access.

I guess they also appeal to the mall ninjas too.

This.

Why carry a gun in a bag on a sling when you could just carry a gun on a sling?

More comfortable, especially when wearing it for an extended period of time.

It's also an easy way to carry a shotgun on a backpack
