A Pennsylvania couple is combining their love of crafting with their commitment to the Second Amendment.

Visitors to this weekend’s 55th annual Catoctin Colorfest in Thurmont, Md., will be hard-pressed not to notice a large American flag made entirely from red, white and blue shotgun shells.

It is the work of Zach and Janelle James, owners at Ready Aim Craft in Fawn Grove, York Township.

Ready Aim Craft is a member of the NRA Business Alliance, and every item in the shop is designed and created to show support for the Second Amendment and to celebrate American pride and patriotism. The shop’s most popular item online and at Colorfest is their American Flag made from spent 12 gauge shotgun shells.

“We’ve always done things a little differently, which I think our customers appreciate,” Janelle James said.

Colorfest, will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 13-14 at the base of the Catoctin Mountains in Thurmont. Admission is free. For more information, visit the Colorfest website.
