Firearm Bags

Have gun, will travel. For nearly as long as there have been guns, there has been a need to carry and store them. Some of the earliest firearms bags were protective cases for storing weapons sewn from fabric, made from pieces of hide and fashioned from wood. Later came velvet-lined presentation-style boxes, wood-framed storage cases, and hard- and soft-sided luggage-style bags.

Both antique and contemporary bags for carrying weapons come in myriad forms limited only by the creator's imagination and the gun owner's needs. They range from simple zippered bags to custom carryalls for specific tasks like target, trap, and skeet shooting.

Among the most appreciated firearms bags are stitched and riveted scabbard-style leather cases such as the once-popular mutton leg-shaped carriers. Others have a romantic appeal, like coffin-style violin cases outfitted to carry gangsters' Thompson submachine guns. Then there are decades-old leather-trimmed duck canvas hunting and military cases crafted for long guns.

More recently, portable bags for the task of carrying guns have taken the shape of everything from lunch boxes to airport carryons. Some are made to take serious abuse or to be watertight, airtight, and corrosion proof. Others provide easy accessibility, such as concealed carry purses. Many modern firearms bags are equipped with built-in handgun or long arm holders, magazine pockets, dedicated ammo cases, and hydration gear pouches.

Whether seeking a piece of history or a practical bag for transporting a firearm, auctions are the ideal source for firearms bags.
