BlackWhiteGrey posted interesting pics of his tripod case which he uses as a discreet carrying case for shotgun. Very clever idea!
Gun sock is a popular and inexpensive way to protect your shotgun during transportation and storage. I’ve bough two socks on Brownells. They are made by SACK UPS company which makes gun socks since 1985.
So, why do you need both long and short socks. I use long sock to transport my gun. Gun sock protects finish of my shotgun and also protects internal parts from dust, sand and dirt. Another good feature is that cotton cloth is treated with silicone and oil that helps inhibit rust. Gun sock will wick moisture away if your shotgun is wet. That is also important in cold weather when you can see condensate on your firearm when you bring it indoors.
Shotgun carrying cases are good to have when carrying your shotgun and shells around with you. There are all different kinds of cases available. There are cases that look like other kinds of cases, such as guitar cases, in order to conceal the fact that you are carrying a shotgun. But if you don’t want to conceal the shotgun then you could get a case that is shaped just like it, so that it can easily fit inside of the case. This is used more commonly for hunters or people who don’t care to show off the fact that they have a shotgun. If you want to hide it then you will either need a bigger case that doesn’t look like a shotgun or a case that is shaped differently on the outside in order to fool people.
Here is review of the New Voodoo Tactical Shotgun Case from Chief Brody from Remington 870 Forum:
Hey guys, I wanted to show you a new soft case I just got from Midway. This is the Voodoo Tactical Enlarged Shotgun Case (Item no. 15-0083). After sitting on the fence for a while about ordering one, I am very impressed with the case. It is very sturdily built with 900D poly, large heavy duty zippers, lots of MOLLE, four shell pouches, another larger zippered pocket, more shell storage inside…Lots of well-thought out and nicely-executed features.
