Given the age of that, i am surprised you were able to save it and have it end up as nice looking as it is.

After several sessions on the range, I'm now convinced that the pad is good as it is. As a result, I now have a goatskin which I don't need. I've got about $20 in it. I'll send it to you for $12

Actually, Barge Cement is a contact cement, but it’s about 100% stronger than hobby store/ craft supply contact cement. Not sure if Tandy Leather carries it any more, but (as far as I know) the ACE hardware chain lists it in their on-line catalouge. That’s where I get it. Buy 2 small tubes, more will go bad in time. It’s what shoe manufacturers use to permanently (!!!) bond uppers to lowers, soles to bottoms, etc. Follow the directions, which roughly are: Spread a THIN coat on both parts. Let dry ( I allow at least 30 minutes) Align parts EXACTLY where you want them and press together. DO NOT let the leather wrinkle, trap air pockets, or otherwise go where you don’t want it to go. Best technique is to fit everything together before applying cement. When it is ready, turn thinnest piece cement side up and slowly apply the two pieces at one edge. Check alignment as you progress. Work gradually to join the 2 pieces, “ rolling “the piece as you go. Use an leather folder to “burnish” the top (cement free) side as you go. ( The bowl of a metal spoon will serve this purpose well,too.) It’s very important to remember once Barge cemented items are joined, THEY WILL NOT COME APART! Cap tube securely between uses. It is, hands down, the best leather cement there is.

interesting - have not looked for this in years- fly fishing shops used to carry it - it was the glue to use to attach felt soles

but looking around - the original formula (red and yellow packaging) seems to be harder to find now days- even the maker's site only sells the new blue package version
