I'm looking for ideas for making a quiver to take along on hikes, walks etc. I'd like to see some pic's of

yours? Thanks.

I bought a paintball cylinder last night. Holds 140 paintballs. It holds lots of skewers, sans cones..

As soon as I finish making my new darts and attaching some improvised broad heads, will take a picture and post it up. I'm cutting up some of those nuisance junkmail credit cards and a couple of old dvds, running them through this contraption; http://www.kfvs12.com/story/19166728/does-it-work-wednesday-edge-of-glory-knife-sharpener?clienttype=printable

Lets see how many stitches I get after this event..REMEBER TO WEAR EYE PROTECTION.

Yeah, I see that I'm a little late on this one... but here goes:

This is made from the upper 1/3 of a large snake gourd. The cord is braided hemp with a bit of twig for the toggle.
One might imagine that it dumps the darts out fairly easily... But NO! This is because I squirted a dollop of that expanding foam stuff in the bottom of the quiver. After it has firmed up, it's like a pincushion- holds the darts perfectly!

Turtle, for my wire shafted darts I use a home made necklace with a leather key fob attached without the metal key ring. I glued a 25 cent coin sized rare earth magnet to the leather with hot melt. The shafts are held by the magnet with the cones hanging down. They hold well but can't carry more than about half a dozen comfortably. More than that and the bulk of the darts push out against my shirt causing more pressure against the skin of my chest making me want to start scratching my chest after about five minutes of carry.

I have poked my fingers a couple times when grabbing a dart in haste as the points are not covered. So I think I will get a second leather key fob and glue it on top of the first leaving the bottom edge open. The magnet then will sit inside the "clamshell" like sheath and hold the dart shafts but the tips then will no longer be exposed. Hopefully that will work in a safer manor.

To remove a dart you just slide it down and off the magnet and place it into your blow gun. This works well for going on walks etc. with your BG when using it as a walking stick and you just want to have a couple darts with you just in case you run across something you want to shoot in the head like a zombie or other dead animal. grin
