    I ordered the RTIC cases. Missed out on the 53" so I got a 42" plus an 18" pistol case. Will post when they get here on Thursday.

    I believe I own every striker fired pistol in production. It is my humble opinion that the Walther PPQ is best of the bunch. Great fit and the best trigger out of the box. This price is a real steal!

    WALTHER PPQ 9MM PISTOL

    EDIT: ok, I don't own a Ruger American

    I’d buy a pelican for that type of coin. That’s crazy for a soft side case.

    those of us who are frequently moving rifles to and from range, bags get worn out quickly. pelicans are not an option unless you own 1 rifle and want to be ridiculed at the range (well at least my club).

    a pelican serves different purpose. think sneakers vs boots. $130 for a high quality 44" double rifle case is a good deal compared to what else is out there, like this garbage $88 blackhawk rifle bag:

    https://www.amazon.com/BLACKHAWK-64RC3-Black-Rifle-Case/dp/B001TIDWX4?th=1&psc=1

    maybe prefer the trash condor bag for $86?

    I got my RTIC cases in. WOW. Gorilla-proof for sure. Glad I didn't get the 52" case. The 43" comes with an end-handle. . . and wheels. MUCH more stable than I was expecting.

    Overly sufficient foam in both of them. Enough to do cut-outs if you wanted or just leave it. Both have good real estate for a lock. I'm very pleased.

    So with that case you can carry two rifles no?
    It’s no problem fitting two rifles in a pelican if you know what you’re doing with foam.

    I’m not doubting it’s a nice case. But like you said it’s like a pair of designer sneakers. They’re nice and all but you can get a pair of new balance or adidas for half the price that do the same thing.

    CPG20 is their coupon code that knocks off another 20%. I was looking for a soft case to carry two riffles to the range. Hopfully this works out.

    I use the 5.11 VTAC bag, got a good deal on it before deals on 5.11 became scarce. Certainly wouldn’t pay $180 retail, that’s crazy talk.

    That one looks similar and maybe nicer.

    Got the Rails in. Very nice fit and finish and solid lock up. Great option for someone who is looking for a slim aluminum rail that needs to be compatible with a triangular end cap

    Remember when you were bemoaning the cost and availability of .22? The stories you would tell about .03 per round? Well, if you are prime and don’t mind the rebate game here's your chance, CCI standard velocity 40 grain for fractions over $.03 per round.

    You guys are kidding, right? If anything, I'd spend maybe $5 at a yard sale for an old duffle bag, and then replace it in a couple years. Good grief.

    You can always store them in a cheap pair of Mukluks.

    These were standard issue in Alaska in the 70's. Need the liners, easy on and off, very warm, I wore mine doing snow removal for a while. The canvas tears relatively easily is the one drawback so look for fresh ones not 40 year old ones.

    New CAA MCK with stabilizing brace. $200 after 20% off code and free shipping from Glockstore.com. I have been curious about these for a long time and the new version worked out a lot of the flaws with the gen 1.

    I shot one once. Felt really awkward. I had to scrunch myself all up to shoulder it.
