It seems the latest rage in the gun-community is low-profile rifle bags. While I completely agree with the concept, I have never seen one successfully executed. Sure, on the floor of SHOT show it may look “low profile” when sitting next to “level 47” body armor, but out on the street it’s a joke. Doubt me? Toss a rife in one and walk down a street where that rifle is illegal.
Still feeling good about your odds with that rifle bag? Would disguising the rifle increase your odds? While I don’t advocate breaking gun laws, I give an extreme example to prove a point. Those bags don’t work. You WILL get nailed. Getting them by a bunch of ignoramuses who spend every waking moment looking at a smart-phone isn’t a successful test. And anyone pushing such nonsense is more interested in your money than your best interests.
Now let’s talk about what we do know. Here is a list of top readers of this blog broken down by country for the last 90 days. With the possible exception of 27 (Afghanistan — Deployed US Troops), most of these countries are 1st world, modern, and populated by semi and large urban centers.
If I needed to walk around any of these countries with a rifle, my cheap tennis bag would beat any of the “tactical” makes all day, every day. And twice on Sunday.

- United Kingdom
