Labeling cases

My guns are kept in locked cases. The cases are not marked as to contents, so I have to check to make sure what I am taking to the range. Does anyone mark or label their cases?

I will occasionally label something with a "phone number." If numbers don't make sense, I will use an address. Works for me.

Use 1,2,3 or A,B,C or a,b,c or I,II,III

The differents in format (Arabic, capital letters, small letters, Roman Numerials) could differentiate types of weapons.

An index (in your computer, PDA, or in a folder near the weapon storage area) would give the details.

Do you buy all the same cases?

I have about 15 or 16 firearms and I know what is in ever case within 3 seconds of looking at it....and thats only the two leather cases that had Model 70's in for years and when i mounted a bigger scope on one, had to swap the two to make everything work out.

Using diffirent colored cases or different brands/shaped cases also helps with quick ID

which I write on what is in the sock so I don't have to unwrap it to see. I only take 2 rifles at a time to the range in a double case so no problem there......chris3

Even if I take all of my long guns to the range (8), there aren't enough to get 'em confused. All of my cases are different. I do have identical handgun cases but then I just remember the order in which I loaded 'em into the range box.

Wish I had enough that I could confuse myself :uhoh:

Why not mark them?

You could always give each gun a name and then mark the name on the case. "This here's my favorite gun, I call her Vera..." :D

You need to be very carefull about what you say...

If your "signifigant other" overhears you saying "I am going camping and am bringing Vera," you may have <heck> to pay:neener:
