If its PU , then they say Leather PU or something like that.

There is a great video by the guy who runs Saddleback Leather in San Antonio thats called something like How to Knock Off One of Our Bags. He does a great explanation of leathers in it.

Wish hed make gunslips.

The ad I saw for the 110 case clearly stated " PU Leather".

I keep kicking myself, there was a genuine Purdey's single gun motor style case in excellent condition a few months back on eBay, It sold for $540, shipped, a real steal. I like the motor case more than the traditional style flat case.
It was from Lewiston, Idaho, isn't there a dealer there?



My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

I didn't mind if it wasn't really oak underneath, but y'all scared me up talking about polyurethane "leather".

Thanks, SRH


Hope it works out for the best ,buying sight unseen is always a gamble.
I bought a tweed gunslip in the last sealed bids sale at Holts. Very thin material thin padding and no waterproofing. Fortunately it arrived torn and was returned for refund. This Summer I was in Gullane East of Edinburgh. There is a small shop there called The Black House. The lady who runs it is from Stornaway on Lewis. She travels home to pick up thick Harris tweed and then makes handbags by hand all of which are waterproof lined. She had around four or five side by side tweed gun slips she had made which are very good quality. They are not advertised on her website and she has no plans to make any more. The side by side models are suitable for long barrels and top opening only I bought one for my Parker reproduction and am very impressed with it . The over and under models ,she had about three, are side zipped but I didnt really look at them closely The side by side seemed built for much longer barrels than my 28 inch repro. I can recommend them ,they are under the 200 mark and should sell for more, postage would be reasonable to the US. I am thinking of buying another.If House of Bruar were selling them they would be half again in price but as she makes them all herself volume production is not an option.

You may have seen a different ad than the one I saw, then. Not to be picky, but it said:

GDK LEATHER PU SHOTGUN CASE, WOOD,LEATHER CASE,26-32"GUN CASE,FELT LINING 165pu

.........not PU Leather.

The above was copied directly from the ad itself. If PU means polyurethane, what does the 165pu mean in reference to the felt lining? This is why I question that it is in reference to polyurethane. Does it mean the felt is also polyurethane? I'd think not, which is why I speculate that the PU has another possible meaning.

I will message the contact person at GDK and ask him straight out.

Stan, I spent a long time in the leather (shoe) business. The use of PU in that context means it's not leather, it's polyurethane.

Replacement:

That case looks familiar to me. Its made in China, same as where Tony Galazans cases are made. I made contact with that company in China. Cases were really a deal. However they wanted an order for 250 cases. I did not have storage room for that many

Thanks John. If it's made in China I'm not interested at any price.

Yep, that Purdey case was a steal.
