SIG SAUER - Never Settle

LaRue Cagulowa

If you’ve been looking for a handy way to carry your scope equipped rifle, then the Cagulowa from Larue Tactical is for you.

Made of leather, it features six adjustment points to balance the center of gravity.

Below, Mark LaRue explains why he created the Cagulowa:

Whelp, I blame this new product on yoga pants. Wait ! Hear me out.

While working out one day at a gym called OrangeTheory, the female yell-leader instructor must be a model for yoga pants or a LuLuLemon plant. Anyhow, the whole aura she had goin’ on caused me to lift a larger barbell behind my head than my age group (old) could handle. Bam !! Torn right elbow.

Fast forward to now. Elbow is slow to heal but I need to hike with a rifle …

“As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks.”

– Thomas Jefferson 1785 August 19.

On my ranch hikes, using my injured right arm, I couldn’t find a comfortable way to carry my scoped 10-22. My invention demon jumped onto my right shoulder and drop kicked my right ear. Bam again !! I listened to the invention demon and came up with the Cagulowa ™ – Carries Gun Long Way.

Trust me, this is nice to have. Makes carrying scoped rifles a gamechanger. Tell your gal you are sick of Valentine’s Day chocolates and you want a Cagulowa™ Carry Handle instead. And no, silly, it won’t change you rifles zero (unless you duct-taped your scope on).

Be advised, these are made by slow walking saddle makers, so put your order in and give us a few days to knock you one out.

    This has to be the stupidest accessory I have ever seen. Who in their right mind would spend hours sighting in, pairing the scope to the weapon, only to then sling it around by the scope.

      Probably a company that’s stuck in 2008.

    • Alpha2 says:

      Thinking the exact same thing. WTF? This makes absolutely NO sense at all.

      • SamHill says:

        If you guys ever watched some rifle competitions those guys grab and pin their scopes in place against barricades, rocks, towers etc. and grab and carry them, bang them, any kind of way. It may not work for your $32 optic with multi color change reticle option from academy sports, but my understanding is that quality optics, in quality mounts, don’t move when used in this manner.

        I’m not buying one, but I’m certainly not going to down this successful businessman’s latest product.

        BTW, I bet if HSGI did one with tacticool materials, or zev did one with red aluminum and carbon fiber some of these naysayers would be all over it.

    This is incredible. Most Larue products are state of the art from 2004. This is something I would expect from the wild west. Mark is really going after those red dead redemption fans!

    Can’t wait ’til they do an alligator skin pistol lanyard.

    Remarkable invention, a great untilitarian way to carry a scoped rifle. Im
    Interested to know how this would work with a scoped AR rifle

  5. Chris says:

    “If you’ve been looking for a handy way to carry your scope equipped rifle”

    You mean a sling?

  6. Kent Gooch says:

    Unbelievably stupid idea. Someone at Larue needs a piss test

  7. some other joe says:

    TL;DR: Like most things guys do, this one started with trying to impress a girl 😉

  8. rob says:

    I feel like this is a really dumb way of carrying a rifle, by it’s most fragile part.

  9. Adam Lyon says:

    Is if April 1st already?

  10. Richard Schagen says:

    I’ve heard of another revolutionary system to carry a rifle-it’s called a sling

  11. D308 says:

    But why?

    • SamHill says:

      Because ‘Merica. And capitalism.

      Don’t worry, you aren’t forced to pay for it like car Insurance, car registration, social security, Obamacare, income tax, sales tax, property tax, foreign aid to countries that hate us, bank bailouts, auto industry bailouts etc.

      With this product, you have a choice to not buy it, or to buy it if you like it. Be happy in that. He also explained in the wording of the post, why he created the product, and what its intended use is. From there, you need to be a big boy, and make informed decisions on your own regarding the usefulness of the product in your life. Good day.

    I’ll stick with my Kifaru Gun Bearer . . .

    • SamHill says:

      That sounds like a great idea. I looked that one up and it seems that one is for when you are wearing a backpack or battle belt, yes? This one appears to be intended to be hand carried, independent of packs or belts . . . (extra dramatic ellipsis).

  13. SamHill says:

    Remember that one time a great company made an American made product under our system of capitalism, that we didn’t like or have to buy, but maybe some other kids liked it and they bought it and we didn’t whine about it on the internet ?

    • SSD says:

      I’ve heard of it. It was a time before America’s sons were weened on soy milk.

    • SVGC says:

      Glad someone here has the same opinion on this. I need nothing like this, but so what? I don’t need patches or flannel combat shirts either. LaRue makes like 200 products, not everything is going to be earth shattering or for everybody.

    • Chuck says:

      This comment should be copied and pasted into the comment section of this website almost daily.


    • JW says:

      Valid point, however, in current cultures it seems to be a competition to see who can write the funniest comment on blogs/forums and get this most likes. It’s makes for a fun read, but can get annoying. I still think SSD’s more serious posts have legit comments on them though.

  14. EODMadBomb says:

    I bought one of these to impress a girl in yoga pants…didn’t work.

  15. The Hessian says:

    I’m 67 years old, a vet and a hunter who has hunted nearly everything from prairie dogs to elephant in some very rough and inhospitable places. I’ve carried my scoped rifles this way for at least a half century. Learned it from my father who was an LEO for 40 years. Not with fancy leather but in the same way. Have never had a rifle/scope combo change POI or group size and have never damaged a rifle, scope or mount because of it. Do what works for you and ignore the naysayers.

  16. Tazman66gt says:

    Eh, think you boys are being played just a little bit. Probably a SHOT Show gimmick to get the tacticool wannabe’s in a froth. “Piss and moan, piss and moan. Why would they make something like this, it’s stupid!!!!!”

  17. Thomas Stickle says:

    You know, unless your scope and rings are made out of paper this method of carry should have no effect on POA/POI. Even Econ-o scopes/rings can withstand being used this way. The truth is, its a nice way to carry a rifle. If you don’t like it keep your negative opinion, like your asshole, to yourself because no one wants to see it. Could you at least comment on the craftsmanship of a product and say something nice?

  18. Yebache says:

    So kind of like a sling, but also a briefcase?

  19. Greg K says:

    It’s be acceptable if you could replace the top half of the scope rings with a new one with integrated handles instead of straps directly around the scope itself, then the weight is going directly into the mounts.

  20. Chad says:

    Reading these comments reminded me why I stopped reading…glad to see those guys are all still alive and well.

  21. jjj0309 says:

    I don’t understand the hate. It looks great for hunting. Like, you know, people who hunts to live.

  22. Hey Mark, We met in Okla and you told me about your plane mishap in Mansfield La.
    Great idea. Been doing it for years with my cordura scope covers but yours looks to balance better in the hand.
    No wind.

  23. Jon M says:

    No wonder no one wants to buy this company. When items like this are being put out, it’s clear they have hit rock bottom and started to dig.
