How do you pack your long gun(s) to the range?

Hey guys,

So far I used a multi-compartment backpack for my handgun but wonder what people do for long guns.

Does something like this make sense? https://www.harborfreight.com/9800-weatherproof-protective-rifle-case-long-black-64520.html

Thanks again! :D

That looks like excellent protection, though for local range trips I just use soft cases.  If you ever travel by air with the guns, that hard case looks like an great choice.

That would work and in my opinion is more than necessary. I use the fabric zippered cases. Much cheaper, much lighter weight and take up less space. Especially considering how many I need for various rifles and shotguns. I'd consider a hard case if I felt the need to lock them up, but since they are never out of my sight, I do not see the need. Or if I had several thousand dollars invested into the rifle.

Hard cases for air travel or if I am staying at a hotel and want to use the hard case as an improvised safes otherwise they are unnecessarily bulky and heavy.

Local range trips I have soft cases. I have used tons of different ones. My current favorites are:

Tactical Tailor Covert Case:

LaRue Improved Discreet Soft Case:

I like these because they fit inside the Pelican 1700/Storm iM3100 sized hard cases, giving me options.

I also like the  LBX 16” Rifle Case:

Holds a rifle, pistol, mags, and everything I need (minus ammo and nylon - belt, PC, etc…) for a day at the range or a competition.

For training classes I have a Tactical to Go Double Gun Case and I love it:

Thanks for the input guys! I have a soft zippered bag that fits my shotgun, so I guess that works as is too.
I actually ordered this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C2JRHY3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Which isn't exactly small but seems more practical than the case. Can hold a couple rifles and handguns, with separate compartments for ammo so everything can go in one bag. Granted, my collection doesn't really justify it yet but I'm in a buying mood :D
