3 Firearms. 1 Case. The Safariland 3-Gun Competition Bag.

I love my GORUCK Firearms gear. A lot (don’t judge me). My only current issue with it is for 3-Gun. The Discreet Rifle Case is useless for the shotgun, and necessitates that I carry another bag. It would be nice to have a single carry solution.

The Safariland 3-Gun Competition Bag retains all of your gear together in one place for range day. This rugged competition case, made from nylon ballistic pack cloth, features closed-cell protective foam padding on the interior pockets to keep your equipment in place and safe from impacts and wear. The features of the 3-Gun Competition Bag include:

  • All Your Competition Gear In 1 Case: Large separate pouches to carry a rifle, shotgun, handgun, and assorted accessories.
  • 3 Methods Of Carry: Adjustable straps to carry like a backpack, over the shoulder, or with luggage-style handles.
  • Zippered Barrel Extension Slot: Pop-out slot on the side of the case allows for use of longer firearms up to 51″.

I realize that this is a much older product from Safariland (looks like it was featured at SHOT in 2011), but they are still selling it and I’ve seen it pop up around the internet (and just in my inbox today). The price isn’t really that terrible for what all they are advertising it does: $169.

Does anyone here have any experience with this case? If so, what are your thoughts? Good case? Bad case? Anything you wished it had?

    Convenient for thieves. I'll stick with softball bat bags and hockey bags - I can literally cram all my SRT gear into one 90 pound package that looks like I'm headed for the playoffs and requires a rookie to get in and out of the trunk.

    This is a great piece of equipment. I'm always struggling to get everything to the range in a convenient way; it's usually case of multiple bags hacked together with straps and tape.
