    Contender barrel carrying case

    Looking at this, if I get a couple 21" and mostly 14" barrels eventually, how do people carry it all if they want to haul it all to the range together? (for some I know, it could take a 4'x4' trailer, but I'll limit this to 20 barrels, that level of addiction I might reach eventually, dunno about more than that for some time!) Something like a 24" wide suitcase and add convoluted foam cut to fit or ??? Thanks!

    I bought a Plano case for breakdown rifle/shotguns. With the Plano, the to foam is divided up in 1/2"blocks. After some lying around, I can put in my three contenders with barrels from 10-14 and some with scopes. I also created a spot for tools. I could probably fit another barrel in.
    Good Luck

    I use an old briefcase without the dividers, etc. I lined it with foam on both sides just like any other gun case. I only carry 3 barrels with mine, though.

    My wife made me a cordura roll up case. It fits 8 bbls up to 14" scoped. The top folds down and has a snapped pocket for tools. It rolls in to a round case with ties. I gave up on internet pictures with the photobucket debacle.

    Some days I want to take 3 barrels, some days I want to take 6, some days 1 frame, some days 3. Makes it hard to have an efficient carry system. Thinking about making, well having my daughter make, some 2 layer pouches with canvas or leather on the outside and silicone gun sock on the inside. Strings sewn to the top so I can fold it over and tie it at whatever length I need. These could then be stacked in whatever works, pelican box or 5 gal bucket.
