Long story short, I am in the market for a rifle case that does not announce to the world that it is a "rifle" case.

I have found the following two cases that I like

http://www.511tactical.com/All-Products/Bags-Backpacks/Gun-Cases/36-Gun-Case-AR15-M4.html

But then again I have not completely researched all of the available cases.

Looking for recommendations from you knowledgeable folks.

Anyone that knows much about guns would be able to identify both of those as rifle cases. The MOLLE on the 5.11(I have 2 of them) definitely stands out.

Here's the thing when it comes to discreet cases, they're always going to look like they have something expensive inside. I've seen people discussing putting music instrument brand stickers and such on pelican cases so it looks like it's holding a keyboard. That's fine, but now it just looks like it's holding an expensive keyboard. If you're simply trying to avoid having something that screams "THERE IS A GUN IN THIS CASE", it's something to consider. If you're looking to not attract thieves... like I said, any case is going to look like it has something expensive in it.

I just accepted the fact that it's going to look like it contains something expensive. The shape alone is most likely going to give it away, so I just use a Pelican case. Then again I don't take it anywhere that I mind that it looks like a rifle case. If in the car/truck, throw a blanket over it. However, there is the option of breaking down your weapon and putting it a gym bag. That should make for a good disguise.

I've seen people at the range wheel in large travel duffel bags and then pulling out their rifles. I've also seen a guy bringing his rifles in a golf bag. Not sure how that one was locked up.

I like this. Not sure how secure duffel bags will be in holding the rifle in place.

This is more along the lines of what I call descreet:

Thanks for all the suggestions folks, I think I will try out a few of the options and see which works. The problem I see with duffel/tennis bags is the lack of padding so I will have to see how to get around that problem.

Look up Field Hockey Stick Bag or Lacrosse bags. Generally the length can go to almost 41".

If your rifle disassembles easily (like an AR), you can go with a shorter case which will help disguise the contents. The Larue case is a good example of this.

Sorry I don't intend on using my rifle only at night :D

Thanks for the suggestions bender and artoaster. I will try to see the LRT case in person to get a better idea of its size.

I have the Maxpedition and love it. Padded and holds an AR and M1 Garand if you are careful.

I use a Hockey Stick bag for my long bolt action rifles and a double tennis racket case for multiple AR's broken down to Uppers/Lowers.

I wouldn't bother and just go with a standard rifle case if I wasn't currently in an apartment.

I know some consider using a keyboard case or put a keyboard logo on their gun case. I may conceal the gun a bit but may make it more a target for thieves.

I have this and like it for discrete carbine and pistol carry.
