If you are writing about an object that might not be commonly know outside the genre what do you guys do. For my specific example: I'm writing about a pommel bag. Everyone here who knows what a pommel bag is say "me".*sound of crickets* Right?

The bag contained some spare ammo for his guns, one change of underwear and socks, one hundred and sixty seven dollars, a small cooking pot and half a dozen disposable lighters.[/blockquote] I don't really want this critiqued, I haven't even proofed it yet (for what that's worth) and I suspect I'll end up splitting it into at least two seperate sentences. But anyways, I'm just curious of you guy's opinion of whether I should add more of a description of what one is? I guess the same question for lariat too?
