    I'm in an apartment in a college town where there are a lot of eyes around. What's a good bag or container to use to transport my long guns to the car without anyone raising suspicion of there being guns involved?

    Hanging clothes bag? Just get a little creative on attaching it to the hanger.

    Get one of those army duffle bags that have a strap for carry and a tie up top. Put the guns in, surround them with clothes and no one will even know guns are in it.

    Took me a little work but you can get one here:

    http://images.google.com/imgres?img...+bag&um=1&hl=en&rlz=1T4ADBF_enUS254US254&sa=N

    Halfway (edit: ok, it's only 1/4 of the way) down the page, "over the shoulder duffle bags". One of them is 50 inches long. If you've got a gun over that... take it apart man.

    Further edit: I know nothing of the quality of these bags I linked. Please shop around before buying anything, this was just the first website I found with a picture of what I was thinking of.

    +1 on the army duffle bag. They're also good camouflage for when you have to leave the guns in the car for any reason.

    I second a golf club bag, especially a hard case, with a cover....after all, if you're shooting sporting clays, it IS called "golf with a shotgun" - what could be more apropos?

    Golf bags work, as do lacrosse stick bags . . . it helps if you can "dual use" the bags with actual golf/lacrosse equipment to maintain "deep cover" in case someone asks about your driving range or lacrosse league . . . old "sea bags" could work as well for your purposes.

    i use a couple different ones

    i found a really inexpensive tent pole bag that works just great
    i put the long guns in a padded case and put the cases in the pole bag

    i have also bought a mic stand bag, which was also cheap and
    works well, since it is padded. it only fits a couple where the
    tent pole bag isnt padded and fits about 3 or 4

    best of all, they both have logos on them that arent at all
    related to what is actually inside them, so it works even better

    (i think kahr sells a violin case for their tommys...now that is cool!)

    hope this helps

    Anything that will carry them, that itself does not advertise something worth stealing.Tell people you have a second part time job, and have a long bag stencilied with "Johnsons' Portable Chemical Toilet Cleaner - We're Number 1 in the Number 2 business!" Add some artistic painted brown "stains", nobody will EVER touch it.

    I used to use a soft guitar case that the previous renter left in the closet.

    It seemed like a great idea until the girl next door asked me to play something for her.

    If the gun has any way to take it down (an AR or a shotgun, for example) short hard cases usually don't scream gun like the long ones do.

    I went to goodwill and found a guitar case for cheap. I added a little egg crate foam and it seems to work ok.

    Dry cleaning. Works great. Put the rifle in between the shirts and grip the sling with the same hand that holds the hangars (all your rifles DO have slings, dont they?)

    You could try breaking down the rifle if possible, make it a smaller package.

    I like the golf bag idea. A hard-sided golf bag without the dividers would hold several long guns. Just wrap them in something so as to protect them from dings and the like.

    Might want to put the travel hood on the bag too. Otherwise everyone will be wondering about this weirdo carrying around a golf bag with no clubs in it. ;)

    I met a guy at the range once who had exactly that. A Thompson sub in a red velvet-lined violin case. I just about wet myself it was so cool.

    Coffin. :p

    Violin cases are pretty short... Cello might work better. Guitar, too.

    Those army duffles look promising.
