View Full Version : Overall Length w/SpecOps

September 16, 2005, 10:00 AM
Hello all,

I have a specOps on order, I'm need to get a carrying bag and am interested in the :

Galati 35"


Galati 44"


Could someone with a Moss 20" Barrel and SpecOps give me an opinion if the 35" Bag would do? Anyone have the overall length with SpecOps set to shortest length?

Also, any recommendations on Carrying cases is appreciated, I'm looking for something that is low profile, hence doesn't make it obvious you are carrying a firearm..

I dont mean to offend - Why do you need to "sneak" a long gun into or out of anywhere. I hope your arent taking up into a high tower some where... :D
I would go for the longer of the two. Personaly, I am looking into a hard plastic case for both my Shotguns and extra ammo.

Maybe his range is like mine...the rule is that all firearms must be holstered or cased until you are on firing line.

First off, here in NY State by law all firearms regardless of permit/licensing for private citizens must be concealed. The transport of SG/Rifle must be done with the weapon in a enclosed case separate from ammo. I suspect this doesn't apply in your state where it is common for folks to mount SG's visable in the back windows of their trucks like in the dukes of hazard. :rolleyes:

With that said, I personally feel it is a gun owner's responsibility to protect the firearm from getting into the wrong hands. Therefore I prefer not to make it obvious when I go to and from the range. As to not make the firearm a target for burglary or theft. This is just being a responsible owner.. :barf:

Also, the ranges around here are often run by ex and current LEO's that require all firearms being brought in be encased, and actions properly secured by a lock.

Yeah round these parts, we shoot skeet in the parking lot of the range ;)
It just sounded odd when I read your first post out loud. I was envisioning a guitar case or something with an arsenal in it...
I agree 10000% that to own any weapon is to be 100000% responsible for that weapon. I keep my weapons in a safe in my garage with cable locks on them in the safe.
Things are so liberal anymore in here Vancouver, WA that a gun rack in a truck is punishable by catapault. Think of the children!
