Someone posted this photo on Facebook. It is their suppressed FDE FN SCAR17S in a guitar case. Due to the folding stock design, it is a perfect fit in the guitar case. Perfect for discrete traveling. Do you use discrete cases for your firearms?

    Gym bag, works amazingly well.

    That awkward moment when you’re part of a Jackson Browne tribute band and you show up to the gig with the wrong guitar case.

    • Anonymoose

      It was still a good time, though.

  • Bill

    Well, if I posted a picture of it it wouldn’t be very discrete, would it? Besides, there’s a lot of hoods who’d target anything they thought might be a Strat, Les Paul, Gretsch, Rickenbacker, etc…

    I use trash cans for hauling stuff like bulk targets and mass quantities of short shotguns. I put “Medical Waste” and “Biohazard” stickers on them.

    When I spawned we did have a diaper bag that had a bottom compartment for a changing pad that I could stick a pistol in. Now that I’m older and closer to needing diapers myself I should see if we still have that somewhere.

    I use a bass soft case, but that’s mostly because I’m too cheap to buy a dedicated gun case.

  • Major Tom

    I wish I could carry a 1921 Thompson submachinegun in a violin case.

    • Riverrqt Mike

      I saw them advertised in one of the wannabe Thompson websites but it would be cheaper to just adapt a regular music case.
      One caution though, if you go shopping in a music store don’t tell them it’s for a gun. Guess how I know.

          M4 Carl Gustaf and couple of rounds……….

          • Anonymoose

            I dunno. I think you could fit a Stinger in there…maybe even a TOW…

      Barrett, or three?

        You were like 5 hours late with that one.

      Yeah, discreet all right. Looks they are going to Woodstock II.

  • tiger

    It only works if you look like Antonio Banderas…….

    Be on the look out for El Marriachi with a guitar case full of guns.

  • dan dan

    Discreet enough for you?

    • Buddy_Bizarre

      Oh, that’s a good one.

    • Midwest Marco

      Go to a second hand sports equipment store like “Play It Again Sports”. Tell them you want to buy a multi-racket tennis racket bag. I got mine used for $12. I did a cut-out of a tennis racket using foam board to give the bag the look and support of a real racket. Broken down M4’ish AR fits perfectly.

  • Mr Ed

    The word that you are looking for is “discreet.” “Discrete” means individual, separate or detached.

        Is it sad, or a sign that not all English teachers labour in vain, that what made me open this post was the mistake in the headline?

  • Badwolf

    Yes…guitar cases, tennis bags…I’ve tried them and they all work great as a disguise. Problem is durability. Non gun bags aren’t designed to carry heavy objects. So after few months the spot where the carrying handle attaches to the case or bag starts to rip off.

    And they don’t have velco and pockets inside, so your gun, mags and other stuff flops around the case.

    So a gun case that looks like guitar case or tennis bag, with inside mag pockets and Velcro to secure your gun, and rated to carry at least 30 pounds would be great.

  • I did many, many hours of research on how to carry MULTIPLE (four?) guns in a discrete manner. Hockey team stick bags are about the only cost effective method.

    That or portable keyboard hard cases. Still expensive.

    • Anton

      I’ve been thinking about this as well. the only thing that seems to be about the right size and less likely to get stolen that I can think of is a big fishing coolers. Depending on what guns you’re thinking though. No Mosins or Barretts. But should be good for some AR, AK or anything with 20″ barrel or less. Find one with wheels and you’re good to go.

  • Edeco

    Come to think of it I’ll measure a trombone case next opportunity. Maybe get a scuffed up, used one but would there be drool stains?
    Nobody else use a trombone case for guns, that’ll be my thing.

  • jerry young

    I don’t know about everyone else but when I see someone in a suit carrying a violin case I think Tommy Gun, after seeing this done with guns in guitar cases in the movies I question anyone just walking around with a guitar case too, today I always look at people to see if there is a gun hidden that I can see this gives me a heads up on who’s packing and tells me what to avoid so nobody knows I am it’s called being aware of your surroundings, really I’ve always wanted a Thompson in a violin case!

  • phauxtoe

    Being a Photographer, I use my old pelican cases from my camera equipment that had labels and stickers from travel. The Perfect cover to hide from all these NY Anti gunners around me.
    My friend is a geologist he also uses old cases. His have better labels like “Soil Samples A”. Or something Boring like that!

  • Sunshine_Shooter

    If you carry a gun in a “descrete” case, be sure to know enough about what it is you are pretending to carry. You don’t want to be carrying around a guitar case carrying a rifle and someone strikes up a conversation about guitars that you cannot keep up with because you don’t know anything about playing.

  • AHill

    It’s kind of fun thinking of subtle and ingenious ways to disguise long guns. Unfortunately for me the way the law is written (Canada) the second I carry a gun in a guitar case etc outside my door I’m now carrying a concealed weapon. The only legal options for me are (assuming a nonrestricted)
    A) openly (yes it is legal without permission for me to sling an unloaded rifle on my back in downtown Toronto as long as I am taking it to another home or legal place to shoot it – while being legal the likely police response is another matter)
    B) in a box or container that doesn’t disguise its nature ie a rifle case (MEANT for carrying firearms) or a box that identifies it as a firearm.

    Yes even the judge in sentencing said it was ridiculous that law says one thing and the police and common sense recommend another.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Looks cool but thieves are just as likely to steal a guitar case. Probably more since its easier to sell a guitar and you can get just as much or more than for a gun.

    That’s what she said. Ayooooo

  • Samael527

  • jmf552

    As a musician, I will suggest this is the wrong kind of case. If you have a guitar case, people will come up and want to talk guitars. People will want to steal it. Get a banjo case. If you are carrying in a banjo case, no one will want to talk to you. People won’t even make eye contact. The joke is that if you leave a banjo case in the back seat of a car, people will break in and leave more banjos.

  • The diy kit ones are actually a viable option! Totally forgot about this!
