Anyone know of a US made discreet rifle case?

Want something that has backpack straps, holds an AR (or two), other gear and doesn't scream: "GUN!"

Something like this:

Search turned up nothing.

Thanks,

This may work for you....

Nicely constructed case and I'm pretty sure they're made in the US. I got mine from Area 51 (site sponsor), but I'm not sure they carry them anymore.

Thanks for all the help folks.

I really like this one, but want back pack type straps, for when I want to carry it while on two wheels or snow shoes.

HaHaHaHa..............Sweet. They should really make a true bat bag look'a'like case for guns. With a padded divider and tie down straps. I'd buy one (Sox fan, love anything base ball,)

Now you are talking, all of these 'discreet' gun cases that have been posted are more tactical than 5.11 tactical pants. They stand out really bad. You need to look at tennis racket cases, guitar cases, large brief cases, ect.

guitar cases tennis cases and briefcases stand out just as bad in 99% of environments where you would want to "discretely" transport your rifle.

The one that looks like a folding chair/pop up canopy case is the slickest I've seen yet for real world use.


Example: I look like a hillbilly. There is a half inch of ice falling tonight. Just where the hell does someone suppose I am taking my tennis racket? draws attention.

He does bring up a good point. You have to use a case that fits in with your dress and lifestyle. If you look like Axlnut, in the weather conditions he describes, you'll stand out. If you are 5'4" and 300 lbs, with a racket case, you'll stand out. If you are wearing slacks and a nice shirt, either a button down with or without a tie, or a polo and carrying a ratty guitar case you'll stand out most likely. Carry a good quality one and people will think you're on the church band. Wear some jeans instead and people might think you're just a hobbyist guitar player. Nice weather, or lots of large indoor gyms and that racket case fits in better, especially if you are somewhat athletic looking.

all depends on your attire and how you present yourself....I wear slacks and dress shirts to work all week and right now I wear a calf length dress coat for winter...., a briefcase would make perfect sense for me to be carrying. I would rarely look "normal" carrying any of the other options, or any of the "discreet" cases being sold if I were in the attire I wear 75% or more of the time.

If I had tennis shoes, shorts, and a sleeveless shirt on.....tennis bag would be perfect.

If I had longer hair, a shaved head, or a rock band t-shirt on.....a discreet guitar case would be perfect.

I cant really find a great use for the so called "discreet" cases that are rectangular in shape......with the material used and overall size, I would suspect either an AR or some smaller pistol caliber sub gun like an MP5 or the likes.

Just my personal opinion, but if your goal is to be discreet....perhaps having a few different options for discreet cases to match your attire would be the best route? I mean, if I were walking around last spring at almost 280 lbs, how many people would have thought it was a tennis racket in my tennis case when walking from my vehicle into work?



ETA......my typing is SLOW I guess! haha

Well i live in Phoenix....We can play tennis year around, and they asked for a discreet case. If you run across me im just another blondy going out to play tennis, with massive firepower!
edit: im not a hillbilly, nor do i look like one. So my tennis bag fits me. When i leave my home, i like the fact that people see me carrying a tennis bag versus all the "covert" obvious rifle bags available. Guarantee nobody knows. Like previous post have said use what fits you. p.s. how often does one carry a folding chair/pop up canopy around a city?

I believe some of their products are and some are not. I saw a tv show that said some product that had been made in China was again made in the U.S. to have better QC.
