I had it at Ohio. You saw how long it lasted before I put it back in the car. 10 15 minutes?

RE: Scottish Targe
What is the diameter of it? And the weight? approximately?

RE: Scottish Targe
21" across and about 10? pounds.

base is 1/2" ply covered in 1/4" leather. I Used upholstery studs for the decoration and an old belt to make the straps.

It's just bulky and a bugger to tote until I figure out a better way to carry it.

If you are a member of certain groups, you'll find they have places where you can leave items and they'll be supervised... like the IWG has a hostel at many Faires and the IBRSC may have a den...

RE: Scottish Targe
It made its debut at KY and I was able to run it out to the car after awhile since the faire is so small. In Ohio I just decided was to much of a hassle (before the faire even opened) to tote as I had it set up. I'll need to figure out a better strap that balances the weight of it to counter my claymore and the mug, pouches, etc. Something that allows it to hang across the back or the like.

Make a Baldric or Bandoleer and strap it across your back. Takes it out of your hands, maintains the coolness factor, and will prevent inadvertant back stabbings.

AND you can hang a sword from it if you so desire...

That's my plan, it's just taking the time and sitting down to draw up the design before I put it it leather.

You should know you can always leave items at my booths. The only thing I ask of is that you remember to take the items home by the end of the faire season.

RE: Scottish Targe
Looks good! Ulfric's idea of the bandoleer is a great one. Creates really cool pouches for your quick access items, dresses up the front of the kilt and shows off your targe.

Thought I'd share mine with ya...

The bandoleer will also allow for pouches of shot and a powder horn for my pistol to have some place to hang.

Your targe is wicked cool, what did you use to attach the straps to the body?

I used upholstery tacks.I used contact cement to affix the hair on cow hide to the back, then I used upholstery tacks to on the wrap around of the front.

The handle is just rolled oilly, then flared out to attach.
