A little over five years ago, Matt Bracken wrote an article about finding a sawzall tool case in the trash. He relayed how he took it home and converted it into a carbine case, in which all but an inch of the barrel were hidden inside the tool case.
That article has always stuck with me. This morning I ended up at Walmart with an unexpected flat tire. I started walking up and down the aisles waiting. Then I saw the tool box in the top picture. 26 inches long. ~8 inches deep. This would totally hide a disassembled AR15 carbine, and a fully assemble AR15 pistol depending on the barrel length. The average 16 inch barreled upper with the A2 flash hider is right at 25 inches overall length. If you used the pick and pluck foam from here or any other kind of gun case foam, you could have a lockable gray man gun case.
Then I was at Lowes this evening and then saw this one:
The top tool box was about $26. The Kobalt one is about $30-$35. What do you all think?
Weather and distress it and no one will think anything of it.
