This shooter’s chess set is a must-have for any gun enthusiast who also enjoys a good game of chess.
Shooters and gun enthusiasts are a passionate bunch. They love to express their passion in whatever way they can. Incorporating that passion into other hobbies and décor is a common way of doing that.
For any gun enthusiast who enjoys the strategy of chess, it just doesn’t get any cooler than this shooter’s chess set.
Made and sold by Olde World Collectibles and Creations on Etsy, the ultimate shooter’s chess set is available in several different bullet calibers and board designs. Each one is custom made to order. The seller’s Etsy store page currently lists models available made with .223, .50, 20mm dummy rounds, and one version made from several different calibers.
This set is made with 20mm dummy rounds and features one of the most handsome boards of any of the available sets. However, the seller’s supply of 20mm dummy rounds is running low and there are only enough left for eleven of this particular board, so if you want one, now is your chance!
The attention to detail put into the sculpting of each chess piece is remarkable. Each separate piece retains the essence of a rifle cartridge while remaining loyal to traditional chess piece design. There will be no mistaking which piece is which during a game played on this shooter’s chess set.
Durability of the board won’t be a concern if you buy one of these chess sets. This particular version has an all-metal board with each square having individual welds to the main supports. These sets are definitely made to be put on display in your home or man cave.
For chess players wanting a more portable shooter’s chess set, Olde World Collectibles and Creations offers the version shown above. The set comes with an ammo can and two wooden blocks in order to store the pieces along with a camouflage bag for the board made from real military BDU desert camouflage shirt pockets.
The ultimate shooter’s chess set ranges in price from $315.00 for the .223 version up to $555.00 for the 20mm version. Pieces-only sets are also available from between $115.00 and $240.00 depending on options. Check out more pictures and order your own on the seller’s Etsy store page here.
