    I picked up a cheap $15 Doskosport hardcase for my shotgun and my Savage 93r17. Neither are anything spectacular, but, they get the job done, and I'm not afraid of hurting them or beating them up.

    I prefer softcases, atleast when I'm taking multiple guns to the range its easier to get carry a couple soft cases with straps then hard cases w/o.

    The only hard case I use is for my rifles with optics on them. I think the padding helps keep the scope from getting jostled around too much. Plus, it puts less stress on scope base screws.

    It may be a bit silly of me but I put all my firearms in hard cases. Both the AR and 5R have Pelican 1750s (AR will share it's with a 590 when I buy it) and my G21 and USPc have their own shared Pelican.

    I personally like soft cases more but like to put the guns with scopes or red dot sights in hard cases just to be safer.

    There are certain guns I put in a hard case and certain I put in soft cases. Guns with optics get hard cases, any gun that is traveling further than the range (especially across state lines) gets a hard case (and sometimes a lock as well)

    For the range and back I prefer soft case, easier to handle easier to store when not in use. I've got at least 8 long guns, but if I had a hard case for all of them, I would have a whole second closet devoted to gun cases.

    I've gone almost entirely to soft cases. Just a lot easier to load in (and now under) the back seat. Since I take at least two long guns everytime I go to the ranch, the in-laws, or the golf course I just don't have the space or the patience to deal with hard cases.
    Plus I don't throw any of my guns around or mistreat them at all, even when they're in a case.
