Stay discreet with a guitar gun case
Why would you need a guitar gun case for your rifle you
As a kid, I grew up in North Idaho where guys would go out deer hunting before school and park in the high school parking lot with their rifle in the back window and a dead deer in the bed of their truck. Living now in an anti-gun coastal city where the mere mention of an AR, or any gun for that matter, makes you an enemy of mankind, More discretion is required.
If you are in the suburbs it is fairly easy to be discrete about loading up your rifle when you are headed out for some range time, but if you are in the city, living in an apartment and taking mass transit, packing standard rifle cases around is going to raise some eyebrows. The last thing any of us need is getting trapped on a bus with an ultra-liberal anti-gun nut hassling us about what we have in our gun case. It is best to stick to the Gray Man Concept and just blend into the background of all the people going by.
How do you do that when you want to haul your rifle around you ask. The simple and fun answer is a guitar gun case. Slap some stickers on one of these bad boys and no one will blink when you drag it onto the bus or onto the subway. I’ve done some looking around and here are a couple of guitar gun cases that might be a good choice for you if you are trying to stay discreet while hauling your AR around.

If your budget allows it, the Cedar Mills Guitar Gun Case is your best choice for carrying that one special rifle around. This is built to last. With a full foam insert that is pick-and-pluck ready in one-inch increments, you can tailor your gun case to securely hold any of your rifles and accessories.
Soft Sided Rifle Case
Like the soft side look a little more? The HAZARD 4 guitar rifle case is padded & organized for carbines up to AK47 lengths. This would be a good choice if you are carrying different rifles around, unlike the Cedar Mill case that is more designed for carrying one gun around very securely.

One thing I particularly like about this case is that it can be locked. Now they aren’t high-security locks, but they will prevent someone from casually opening your case ‘accidentally’ on the bus or subway.
The peak cases tend to be more custom-built for what you are carrying, but they have a nice array of guitar and violin gun cases available that you might want to check out.
