Check you local Walmarts... quick!http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_1_5/125614 ... _deal.html
They have these 36" gun cases (Inside dimension actually 37") on sale for $30... How long the $30 price is good for, I don't know, but the marked price of $39-something is already steal considering these exact cases are "on sale" on Amazon.com and at Optics Planet for $99. I checked five Walmarts today and only found one. I really wanted three (three carbine AR15s), but I was happy I found the one.
Well, I shot a quick email to my brother on the other side of the metroplex, and he ran down to his Walmart and found some more.
These have 5 latches, two of which are keyed. There are also two padlock tabs. It has an inset rubber gasket around the lid and a pressure release valve on the bottom. There's eggshell foam in the lid and the bottom, and there's a thick layer of pluck & pull foam in between. The handle is beefy and comfortable.
For $30, or $40, or even a bit more, I don't think you can beat this deal on a hard case.
