People within the gun community are always finding ways to blend in and try to never be noticed. We buy several holsters just to see which one is more concealable as well as comfortable. The need to be unseen stems from several “concerned citizens” practicing what is called “swatting” in other words they constantly make false calls in order to harass law-abiding citizens. So, in order to keep an edge without being pestered for exercising our rights, we simply try not to be noticed.
In comes the Savior Equipment Ultimate Guitar Case, a gun storage option that is much less conspicuous with it shaped like an actual guitar case. It works almost as an active camouflage to dispel any sense of worry regardless of what you actually have inside the case. The guitar case has been memorialized eternally by the movie “Desperado” featuring Antonia Banderas and will go onto to live forever. The tactical bags sometimes work for a while but if you live in a suburban area odds are you are being noticed every range trip. As much as I wish we were in the “wild, wild, west” days where everyone carried a firearm openly, sadly the climate has changed into almost a taboo type situation.
Back to the ultimate guitar case itself, it is actually very stoutly built! It doesn’t have any type of flimsy feel to it at all. The construction is absolutely top-notch in my opinion, the latches are made of good thick polymer as is the shell of the case itself. The latches actually go one step above most others I have seen as when you open them they actually have a spring that pops them out and out of the way so they don’t fall and prevent the opening of the case like some other cases do. Now, this case does not come with low grade “pluck-foam” all of them foam included it very rigid and has a better quality feel to it to retain your gear without worry. Luckily it has 3 layers of it in case if you are like me and have never used a “hot-knife” to cut out the foam so if you mess up you have other chances.
When it comes to configuring the case for what you choose to put inside it the sky is not the limit so you will have to be a bit choosey per se or lay out several configurations. It will hold what I would call a standard duty rifle meaning the rifle and an average size red dot sight or an SBR or AR pistol just fine. Myself, I chose to lay it out with a pistol braced MP5K with 4 magazines and a CZ-75 omega with 4 magazines and that I felt very comfortable with that load as it’s my most often range toys. I would highly recommend messing (moving things around) with your desired content and working the best angles to fit what you would like in it. However, with 3 layers of foam, you can have two actual setups at the same time or chose when one suits your use for the day and still have a solid layer separating them.
Size & Dimensions,
Full Size: 46”H x 18” L x 6” W
Internal: 45” H x 17” L x 5” W
3X Interior Foam: 45” H x 1.5” W
The versatility is amazing as well as it has both a drag handle with wheels to make it super easy and a side carrying handle depending on your contents you are covered whether its light or heavy. I personally decided to put on a bunch of band and music related stickers to further my suburban active camouflage. It blends in great! I had to give it a few test runs and did not even have anyone look at me twice or raise any suspicions. I call that an absolute success and Savior Equipment sells these for around $160 I would call that a cheap way for peace of mind. Cannot recommend the Ultimate Guitar Case enough to you guys! In these current times, we just need to adapt and overcome to avoid being pestered.
