    Carrying Your AR15

    So the wife and I will be picking up her AR15 today and I was looking for ideas on carrying them and transporting them. I think the pelican case is probably the obvious one but are there any others out there? Also how easy/hard was it cutting the foam out to securely hold on to your rifle?

    Thanks.

    -Kyle

    If you are into the slick presentation of the cut out foam you are prob right, (I love it) but I soon found I when I took my AR out I wanted to take more stuff than I had cut outs for. That meant another bag for the rest of the stuff.

    I ended up with a 2 rifle soft case with LOTS of pockets.

    Things gun forums have taught me:
    -Some people shoot guns other "run" them.
    -I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
    -Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
    -Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!

    I keep my rifle (WASR AK) in just a cheap-o $20 soft case. Its soft inside, light weight, zips up, is the right length, and has good handles. Does the trick just fine for my needs. If it was an extremely high end rifle, or something that was of significant value, Id definitely invest in a better case with more features.

    If you are just looking for something to transport it back and forth to the range in, a cheap soft case would be fine. If you want some tactical assassin looking case that will attract attention, go with a high end case.

    Does this need to be airline approved? If so the Pelican is an excellent case! If you don't need airline approved I like the soft side cases they sell at Wallyworld (Blackhawk & Fieldline) they are both great and are about $20. Good luck!

    All depends. For airline/locked travel I have a Pelican 1650 and love it. It came with the 'pick and pluck' foam so no cutting necessary, you just pinch out little cubes. It'll hold a couple uppers, lower, magazines, pistol, suppressor, magazines, ammo. Pic from when I was in the middle of configuring.


    When it's not in there it's in my sneakybag. Fits a broken down carbine or a complete SBR up to 11.5". Front pocket has molle velcro webbing where I store suppressor, 2x mags, TQ, and IFAK. Zippered pocket holds lube, batteries, lights, pistol mags.

    It would definitely pull a double duty as an airline/traveling case and then just a transportation/safe keeping case.

    I like that pelican "remove as you use" case but think I would want the long slender one

    I had the long slender ones (1700 series). I found them pointless because they only hold a rifle. The 1600s can fit guns and support stuff. No sense traveling and having gun in one case, ammo in another, pistol in another. IMO anyway.

    Don't store the gun in there though. It'll rust quick.

    This here is a handy AR15 / M16 case that won't scare your dainty sheeple neighbors:

    They make foam inserts that are precut. You just have to cut the squares out. It's very nice for this type of stuff. Guitar cases also work well as you can see ;)

    Edit: sorry munch already mentioned this. Carry on.

    Unless it's some kind of precision AR or you're looking for TSA approved case, I'd just get a cheap soft case. It's not going to spend much time in it and they're not delicate rifles. Less than $30 at walmart.

    There are as many different firearms cases as there are other accessories. And you can pay as little as you can afford or as much as you want too spend on a case. Hard, soft, no pockets, lots ah pockets. Itís like going into an ice-cream parlor, whatís YOUR favorite flavor?

    Just look around and find one YOU like. A good place to shop is at the LGShows for a wide variety to compare too one another and find a good price.

    Well, you are all to way advance for me. I just cut the ................ back seat...stuff out ............ and only have them there when it is LEGAL. I am very careful about being legal.

    Also if airlines packing, I recommend Strong Case by TnB Enterprises, Inc. - Reno Nevada - Home Page

    I do not even know the owners or have any $$ involvement in the business they run. All I know is the TSA always complements me on the particular 'Box' I have my firearms in, when 'checking baggage' when the TSA is involved. It varies on where you are flying if the TSA is involved on checked baggage and firearms.

    Note: The specific Air Carrier has the final say on your firearm in 'checked' luggage, not the TSA, unless you use a cheap plastic firearms case that can be pried open............
