    I just want a simple nondescript bag for carrying a shotgun around.
    What should I look for, what should I avoid? What kind of features (if any) are important, and what are just bells and whistles?
    thanks!

    If you plan to travel on an airplane, you'll need a lockable hard case.

    For running back and forth to the range I just use an el-cheapo $15 foam lined plastic hardcase. If I did A LOT of traveling with a particular long gun then I'd look at something along the lines of a Hardig Storm Case.

    IMO fancy cases are an item a lot of people over spend on... I'll admit a Pelican or Storm with perfectly trimmed foam looks cool as fuck, but $200 for a case that rides in a car a couple of times a month is overkill.
