Grey Ghost Rifle Case

If you’re in Nashville for the NRA show this week/week-end, then you’ll probably have a chance to see these first-hand.  The Grey Ghost Gear Rifle Case is something a little different from the cheap rifle bags you see elsewhere.

For a start, its lined with hook and loop so you can infinitely customize rifle ride positions, and add additional patches, pouches, or holsters.  Of course, Grey Ghost’s own line of Orange Diamond Concealment pouches can be fully integrated. There is also a set of generous zippered mesh pouches on the inner lid to secure loose items such as range cards, magazines, notepads, and other shooting accoutrement.

The Grey Ghost Rifle Bag is versatile too.  Rifles up to 38” long can fit without issue and larger rifles can easily be secured if broken down, leaving plenty of space for a spotting scope, NVGs, or a handgun or two.
