View Full Version : Discrete 36" Lockable (Double) Rifle Case - Tactical Tailor Source?

TL; DR version: 1) Looking for suggestions on a discrete rifle case ideally double and 36" long. 2) Any idea where to get Tactical Tailor in Canada? (I hate crossborder shipping and try to avoid it whenever possible.)

G'day, I'm hoping you guys can help me figure out my rifle transport situation. I now have two rifles, one came with a nice short ~36" case well suited to the rifle the other came with a one size fits all rifle case. (Read it came with a ~50 gun case for a <30" rifle. Figure that one out.) And even if I could fit both guns in the long one, I'd like something a little more discrete as I live in a townhouse complex in Ontario. Now, as one is restricted the case needs to be lockable, which unfortunately gets rid of the IM3100 field pack (or at least it does based on the IM3200 that the LGS had in store, but that one looked like it had been sitting there forever.) The other two options so far that I've found are unfortunately either really expensive or only holds one rifle.

Option A:
5.11 Tactical Shock Rifle Case 36"

That said, I kinda wonder how well know the 5.11 logo and 5.11 company is known outside of the gun community...

Option B:
Tactical Tailor Covert Carry Case Double Rifle
http://www.tacticaltailor.com/covertcarrycasedoublerifle.aspx

Seems a little more obvious (to me) than the 5.11, but holds two rifles and other stuff. The single rifle version looks less obvious but I've got two rifles... That said I'm not entirely sure where to find TT in Canada. (I hate cross border shipping)

Option C:
Voodoo Tactical 30" Case
http://www.voodootactical.net/p-1876-voodoo-tactical-40-0001-discreet-30-inch-weapons-case-gsa-compliant.aspx

While shorter, it's long enough for my current guns but the next couple might be just a touch long for the case. Seems the most discrete of them (again to me) but again no idea where to get it in Canada.

Does anyone have any experience with the above three cases? Leads on where to get option B would be appreciated and any other suggestions as to case.


As an aside, I'm also wondering if there is any real point in trying for discrete cases if I'm considering upgrading my handgun/range transport to this bag (which is covered in Molle):

I love most of that bag except it's covered in molle and there's no fullsize 8.5x11 document pocket although I suppose you could just fold them up and place them elsewhere.

Anyhow, enough rambling. Thoughts?

Not necessarily. If you can secure the case zippers with a locked padlock, you've got a locked container that is made of an opaque material and is of such strength, construction and nature that it cannot readily be broken open or into or accidentally opened during transportation (http://laws.justice.gc.ca/eng/regulations/SOR-98-209/page-2.html#h-9).

But, whereas you want the Tactical Tailor, you'll probably be unhappy with anything else.

Discrete to me is a duffle bag, guitar or a ski pole bag. Something that doesn't scream firearm. Anything tactical and the length of a rifle wouldnt be discrete IMHO

Like my range bad is a doctor style tool bag complete with tools on the outside. Also my pistol case is a alum tool box.

Don't be too discrete.

The difference between discrete and concealed may be $100,000.00 in legal fees.

Called I don't want my welfare dope smoking neighbors to know.That's why being discrete is important. Go from my apartment, down the hallway. Out the back door, into the parking lot and into my trunk. Pass one, and they ask rather be that dick, I got a job to do for a friend.

Thanks for the link. Yeah, I'm not concerned about it being soft case or zippers. But the zippers on the one that the LGS had weren't lockable. Could put a lock through the pull cords but then you could just untie the cords which defeats the purpose of the lock with no tools.

Thankfully I don't have welfare dope neighbors. My thought is discrete enough that joe public's first thought isn't "Oh he's got a gun in there." but rather "meh, guy with a case, probably sports or music." I'm not too concerned if a gunny recognizes the case.
