Excellent. Nice job.

Timely post. I'm working on a new low profile PDW set up that shares similar ideas here.

Hopefully this makes up for the man purse thread you guys all mocked me for.

Don't worry... we will find another reason to mock you. :beer:

Is that a portfolio case?

In all honesty, it looks like a pistol case, to me. If you're going for grey, that one might still get some second glances.

An Obama sticker will solve that.

I am not grey in any sense, it is too late for that.

Tucked under the arm it looks like a portfolio until you realize it sticks out both sides. I don't need it as an out-and-about case because I carry. Just a better tool in case things turn proactive, in certain circumstances.

what holster is that and where did you pick up the case? Custom job on the velcro inside of it?

If it were me id look at getting a surefire light for it just to round out all the options.

As has been said, slick setup! I`ve always been a fan of camera bags for smaller blasters and instrument cases for larger. Guitar or keyboard cases with a few band stickers are just about perfect.

If you really want to go gray, drop that case into one of these: 49313

you have enough room there to get one of the UZI mag clamps and have a second mag ready plus the one on the shockwave. That and a light, and you GTG!

I want a light but cannot find a flat velcro backed holster made for lights.

A camera bag is a great idea, especially the backpack type. I use one for my AR9mm K gun. They typically have lots of padded sections that can be arranged as up like. They conceal in public like a backpack and some even have camera logos to add to the cover. I do like guitar cases for longer guns and smaller musical instrument cases for smaller guns BUT the days of walking around with a violin case are somewhat limited UNLESS youre AO supports that, such as a college area or maybe some hippie zones in the city.

HA!! That's funny.

Now, my whimsical example is to show another way of thinking about camouflaging in plain sight. I bet you could walk anywhere holding a SpongeBob or Dora pillow and never get two looks. Guitar cases, camera cases, racket cases, etc. are great for walking around, but you can't leave something like that in a vehicle. To a thief, they look valuable. I know we don't EVER want to leave anything in a vehicle, but there are times...

No one is going to break a window and steal a Dora pillow. Just something to think about.

Now, if this idea of a TACTICAL PILLOW CASE takes off I think this might be in the works..

Dora would be statistically better. It fits into anywhere the Rainbow coalition might be hanging better than a guy with a Sponge Bob bag. :lol:

Maybe won't get made on being armed... But I assure you a grown man of warrior build would be 10 looks holding a pillow of Dora or sponge bob unless it's supplemented by a stroller and a EDC toddler.

I found velcro backed holsters to use in my setup that accommodate lights. I am considering either the Crimson Trace LTG-736:

50628

or the Surefire XC1

50629

My question is whether anyone has a recommendation on the two styles of lights, grip activated versus offhand activation? The grip activated seems simpler but then I think there could be times I would not want to inadvertently activate the light as might happen with that.

When I saw the title of "truck gun" I was really hoping to see a technical. This is more practical in the CONUS, I guess..... Whatever.

I still think twin fifties in the bed would be a good time.
