We had a unique request from a long-distance runner that spends a lot of time alone in the Alaskin woods in the heart of bear country. He needed a way to defend himself just in case he ran into a bear. With an average run being over 12 miles muscle fatigue, heavy breathing and elevated heart rate makes shooting difficult. Weapon of choice was a shotgun but how would he carry it. The BCS Shotgun scabbard fit the bill. The four point harness system would hold the shotgun secure to the body over the long runs and allow the shotgun to be drawn quickly if needed.
