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. :mrgreen:

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.

I would like one for my WIN M70 but that looks very official.

Picked one up today in anticicpation of the gun fund maturing by June. Pretty nice case. Definitely a step up from what I normally buy.

They were tucked down on the bottom corner of the shelf in West Branch Wally World, 2 left yesterday. If I wasn't looking for it, I'd have walked on by.
