    Is there a company that makes a Gun case similar to, or exactly like the "JOHN HALL" Gun Case?
    I am looking for a small one gun carry case for a weapon w/34" barrel.
    Any one know of such an animal???
    Thanks.

    HI
    I am in the process to get a quote from Kerry@bfcases to make me a 3 barrel 2 receiver case based on the John Hall case. Kerry's cases are ply wood/aluminum with steel corners and aluminum or plastic panels.

    His e-mail address and website is above.

    I think John sold the business to Tom Nickols (sp), owner of Guns Unlimited, in Omaha.

    I bet the molds are sitting around somewhere, but there must have been an impediment to going back into business. Raw materials, maybe.

    I'd sure be interested in buying another one though!

    Last people to have John Hall Case molds etc. were the Hastings Barrel people and then they went out of business it was all sold at auction.

    So far from what I see on the market there is nothing I like.

    Guess I will make my own case, the way I wish it too be.

    I salvaged the hardware from my old John Hall case which American Airlines destroyed a couple of years back.

    To be continued.........

    I like the compactness of a motor style case also. Americase has the compact style motorcase still in production. I do not think the Standard one will hold 34 inch barrels. If you call them, they can make a longer one for a pretty nominal charge. 1-800-972-2737
