    I guess this is "shooting related" although could be considered "want to buy."

    I recently purchased an RBL 20 ga I plan to hunt grouse and woodcock with. It has a splinter forearm. I have seen a "slip on" leather piece that will help fill my left hand on the side by side. I've done a Google search but nothing comes up re: where I might be able to purchase something like this.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I've tried Cabelas, Bass Pro, Orvis with no luck. I feel certain there is such a thing - apparently I'm not typing in the correct combination of words.

    Thanks in advance.

    The best handguards are made by John Bugden of Murray, Kentucky. He does not have a website, but his phone # is 270-753-0305. He attends most East Coast side by side events.

    I have a Bugden handguard and I think John has made handguards for Galazan.
