The Versa Mount is a attractive, durable, innovative means of mounting your sword scabbard to your belt. The Versa Mount
is available in both a right-hand and left-hand versions. The Versa Mount allows you to position the sword scabbard at any angle.
The Versa Mount consists of two parts, an upper portion which connects to your belt and a lower portion which connects to
your scabbard(see pictureat left).
Both parts contain a circular pattern of metal eyelets. To adjust the angle of the scabbard just overlay the two halves at the
desired angle and secure the two halves together by lacing through the eyelets with the included laces. It is no more difficult than
lacing a shoe.
This mount is not only flexible but it provides for more stability than a traditional mounts. Traditional mounts often include a series
of straps from which the scabbard hangs. The straps allow the scabbard to swing as you move. The Versa Mount minimizes that swing. This provides
for a quicker sword draw and is also more comfortable to wear.
The Versa Mount is specifically designed to work with the SPBT series scabbards for foam swords but it will work with most scabbards for foam or steel swords.

The flintlock pistol was the greatest advance in pirating since the wooden leg. The concept was fairly simple: gunpowder was stuffed into the barrel. A lead ball, usually wrapped in some sort of fabric, was stuffed in. A hammer was then pulled back half-way and left that way until the gun was ready to fire. The pistol technically was not meant to fire in this position, although sometimes they were known to go off half-cocked (and yes, that is the origin of that expression). When the gun was ready to be fired, the hammer was pulled back all the way and the trigger was squeezed.
