This project is almost two years in the making and is my interpretation of a modern-day London Best matched set of custom 9mm 2011 pistols. As you know, any matched pair must come with a case that would nestle the pistols and proper tools for what any gentleman/woman would need
to show up fully prepared for their duel or shooting range trip. I have always liked the historical idea of designing a matched pair of pistols; additionally, there is a reason why the practice started in the first place. I uniquely chose each feature to adapt best
to my disabilities, design sensibility, and intended uses. It made sense to have one carry version and one external training option/backup. The bag itself was a labor of love with Michael Noelle Leatherworx, who helps make the designs in my head manifest themselves into reality.
Over several months the bag design evolved and took its final shape. As shown, the case is made with 10-12oz harness leather, the handle has an alligator strap handle, a 2” AustriAlpin cobra buckle secures the flap, and the front panel unzips to more easily access the interior.
The interior has the reversed holsters that hold the 2011s as configured; the zipped-down panel has my SilencerCo Omega9K and then uses the Esstac Kydex inserts covered in leather to secure four spare magazines. Inside there is room for 300 rounds of ammo, shooting glasses..
a Multitasker multitool with bits, MSA hearing protection, an Otis cleaning kit, elephant leather cigar case, & a pewter flask. If you are heading to a duel, it might be for a traditional bit of liquid courage before the duel or just an after-range trip nip to enjoy with cigars
(Disclaimer: never mix guns and alcohol). Believe it or not, this is a highly condensed description. If you want the full 3000-word nerd version, it’ll be on my substack along with way more photos, including many in-process ones in the next day or two. #craftsmeninamerica
In case there are new people that haven’t seen a million pictures of the matched pair of 2011s here’s a shot of them
