Application filed August 11, 1916.
To @ZZ whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, RICHARD A. Lawaai?.- MAN, a citizen of the United States of America, and resident of Louisville, in the county of Jefferson and State of Kentucky, have invented certain new and useful lmpro-vements in Ammunition -Pockets for hinting-Coats and the like, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to hunting coats, jackets and the like and particularly to ammunition or cartridge pockets for such garments, the said invention having for its object the provision of novel means whereby cartridges are stored and readily accessible for use, the storing being done in such a manner as to cause the cartridges to gravitateJ in the containers or holders when one of the bottom cartridges is removed. rlhus when one cartridge is removed, a clearance is created which will permit the descent of all the cartridges in the column from which the one is removed.
A still further object of this invention is to provide novel means for guarding or holding the lowermost cartridge of each series so that the descent is limited while at the same time means are afforded to permit the ready removal of any one of the lowermost cartridges from the container.
With the foregoing and other objects in view, the invention consists in the details of construction, and in the arrangement and combination of parts to be hereinafter more fully set forth and claimed.
ln describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification wherein like characters denote corresponding parts in the several views, and in which-- Figure l illustrates a View in elevation of a garment showing the cartridge holders as a part thereof; Fig. 2 illustrates a vertical sectional view of the garment through the holders; and Fig. 3 illustrates a view in elevation of the holders on an enlarged scale.
ln these drawings il denotes the garment and 5 illustrates the guards which are of Specification of Letters Patent.

cup-like formation and are secured to the garment under the lower ends of the chutes or pouches G through which cartridges are allowed to gravitate from the top. Flaps 7 are also provided and they have securing ieans 8 by which they are held closed over the upper ends of the chutes or pouches in which the cartridges are stored and through which they descend.
1fn formino' the pouches or chutes, l pre fer to employ a strip of material for each series of such pockets or chutes and by parallel rows of stitching 9 secure the said strip to the garment at equi-distant orapproXimately equi-distant points or rows, so that the material between the rows of stitching may, with the body of the garment itself, constitute the chutes or pouches which receive the cartridges 10. lit is to be undern stood that cartridges, shells or other ammunition may be successfully carried in a device of this kind and that by inserting the hand of an operator in the cup 5, one of the lowermost of the series of shells or cartridges may be removed, thus permitting the descent of the column of ammunition thereabove until the next succeeding cartridge comes to rest on the bottom of the cup.
A clearance is created between the upper edge 1l of the cup and the pouches for the insertion of the fingers of an operator so that the cartridges may be removed.
l claim- 1. ln a hunting coat or jacket, a bod)T portion, a strip of material secured to the said garment by parallel fastenings, spaced apart and the material between the fastenings being loose and forming loops, said loops with the garment constituting pouches for the reception of ammunition, covers for the upper ends of said pouches, and a cup inclosing or embracing the lower ends of said pouches and in spaced relation to the lower ends of said pouches and to the sides to permit the removal of ammunition from the bottom of said pouches, said cup constituting supporting means for the ammunition.
2. ln a hunting coat or jacket, a body portion, a strip of material secured to the said the garment and embracing the lower ends garment by parallel astenings, spaced apart of the said pouches, said cup having its upand the material between the fastenings beper edge standing away from the ends and ing loose and forming loops, said loops With surfaces of the said pouches and forming a the garment constituting pouches for the clearance for the insertion of the handy of an reception of ammunition, covers for the upoperator.
per ends of said pouches, a cup secured to RICHARD A. LANGERMAN.
