    I need a softshell case for a 870 with a pistol grip WITH the stock (like the specops stock) that doesn't scream firearm.
    Please share your experience with some of the available cases. Thanks.

    Go to a music store and buy a guitar case. Get some music-brand stickers and place them prominently on the sides.

    Pawnshop - guitar cases $5. Lots of character, too.

    A guitar case can become a conversation starter...If you're like me and musically challenged, that's not a good thing to carry around.

    I like gym bags. With baseball season starting up, the bags designed to hold bats, helmets, mitts and the rest of the kit are commonly available at sporting goods stores and WalMart, the right size and shape, and generic enough to blend in.

    Hi All-

    My suggestions are for the W.Waller & Son Soft Safe or the Maxpedition Sliver Streamline two-gun case. They're both available in discreet colors that don't have to shout "tacticool" all the time. My favorite for a real sleeper color is gray. That color just disappears to the human eye and simply doesn't attract attention or shadow the way black does. They have closed-cell padding that enables them to float and the Waller model even has a metallic coating sandwiched inside to temporarily protect the firearm inside from heat or flames.

    An important consideration when selecting a case for your rifle or shotgun is to avoid exterior pouches. Exterior pouches can accidentally catch on things and are what make people believe there might be a gun inside. You'll notice these two fantastic cases have everything inside where it belongs.

    Good luck with your search. Let us know on what you finally decide.

    Thanks for the replies. Tac-force transport cases (http://www.tac-force.com) seem ok and cost quite a bit less than others like it.
    Does anyone have any experiences with these?

    The Bagmaster Defender cases work well for a pistol gripped shotgun.

    We discount our Bagmaster products, and they're made in sunny St. Louis. :)

    Here's a link:

    Good luck.

    I would stay away from leather (because of the tanning salts/acids) and vinyl (breathability). Cheaper than dirt used to sell a suplus heavy canvas paratrooper weapon case that works great for AR, Mini14, AK, SKS (anything short). I use one for my Mini14 and it is sturdy, nondescript, has straps for wearing on your back like a pack, and unfolded makes a verry functional shooting mat.
