    Have you noticed that we are getting longer barreled guns and with extended choke tubes but you can't find long enough cases for them?

    I got the Cabelas case too. Very sturdy and a pocket on the side perfect for choke tubes. gyrine

    Merlyn who is owner of Merlyn's Guns has some extra long cases. I believe they are $20 but don't hold me to it. His number is 636-456-1012.

    The Gun Boy made my Wild Hare has a 54" case which is long enough for a Beretta 391 with a 30" barrel and extra long extended chokes. It's about $30 or so. Beretta sells that case under their own name.

    Another soft case style that's hard to find is one that clears high mounted scopes or very long scopes. These used to be common, but my guess is the marketing bean counters simply said they could save money making a "one size doesn't fits all" case to save material and other costs.

    I recently bought a longer soft case from Midway USA for a custom rifle I had built.

    Midway USA has 54" Boyt cases which have plenty of room for a 34" SBT with extended choke.

    Try finding a soft case for a 1100 with a 34 inch barrel. Haven't had any luck at all.

    Try finding a case for a 35" barrel and 15 1/2" LOP! Cabelas, Gander Mount, Bass Pro, no luck.

    Here a link to one that Ballistic Products carries.

    http://www.ballisticproducts.com/prodinfo.asp?number=1311508

    It is designed for the "Old" Ithaca Mag-10. It says 58 inches and should fit whatever you have.

    I have a 56" Browning case that has a couple inches left on my 32" Mag-10.

    Good Luck,

    Will Gurton
