I often carry my 870 or Bushmaster in a Fender Strat guitar case. Couldn't be more unobtrusive.

I went to Dick's and bought the longest sports bag i could find..i think it is a soccer bag.

I also have an old golf bag I picked up at a yard sale. I can put any kind of long gun in it then put club heads covers over the muzzle and leave it propped up on my porch all day and nobody pays a second glance

I've been thinking about having an auto upholstery shop custom build me a low-profile shotgun bag.

In my case, I'd like to have a Remington Green nylon bag to carry a 870P Police gun with the barrel and receiver in separate pockets.

This would be made up in a oval or square shaped bag instead of the usual flat envelope shape.
It would look like a pool cue, sports, or instrument case instead of the usual wide, flat bag.

I figured that the gun would be in one pocket, the barrel in another with a separate area to hold the extension, spring and a full load or two of shells.

I've given some thought to even having areas to store a custom, short cleaning rod for the 18" barrel, and some patches, brushes, and some bore solvent.
I'm not to sure about that, since the idea is to have a light weight, non-bulky case.

I like rectangular gun cases rather than the usual tapered soft cases that shout GUN! at a glance. They seem to work well enough at avoiding undue amounts of interest. Note that a recognizeable guitar case or gig bag is as apt to be stolen as anything else if unattended, maybe moreso.

I've been using one of UTG's less expensive cases ($19.95 IIRC) for a while, and it is holding up so far. They are made for airsoft stuff but do OK for the real thing too.

I've been keeping my eyes open for a ratty golf bag at thrift stores. That way when people ask, I can say I'm just headed to the range to blow off some steam. ;-)

Just strap one of these on your back for your evening stroll around town.:)

If you don't draw enough looks that way you can alway add the bow and arrows.

^^^ Nice. But hardly something one could carry on a stroll through Downtown. :)
