As anyone who owns a long barrelled pistol or revolver knows, finding a suitable way to carry it to and from the range can be a bit of a compromise between what you’d ideally want and what is available. It is not unusual to see the arm brace sticking out of the end of a gunslip holding one of these guns or a rifle case which is far too long being used. The pack on test here however seems to have all the requirements for carrying one of these guns covered.
The most obvious requirement for a bag intended to carry this type of gun is the length, including the arm brace. Also, the brace on revolvers like the Taurus has a wider section at the back at 90-degrees to the widest point of the gun, shaped to fit under your forearm. This wider section can be hard to accommodate in a lot of carry cases. The carry system needs to adequately protect the gun, and in particular the sights, and fully mask the nature of the contents for security reasons.
The main compartments is the ideal length to carry a long barrelled pistol/revolver and also wide enough to accommodate the brace. It is fully padded and also includes a removable mat which folds around the gun to give it even more protection. Two compression straps allow you to tie down the gun to stop it moving around inside the pack.
On the outside of the pack there are three compartments, ideal for carrying hearing protection, ammunition, safety glasses and other accessories. All of the compartments have good quality zips under storm flaps and one has a full panel of Velcro inside to attach small and important items securely. Large grab handles on the side and top of the pack are included as well as a fully padded and adjustable shoulder strap. Multiple attachment points on the exterior of the pack, and two side pockets with elasticated openings, add to the flexibility of the set-up.
The author came across this particular carry-solution while browsing the website of KSL Shooting Supplies and, although it is described as being a carbine sling pack, it is ideal for the LBR. It is very well made and set out and provides for a very secure carry. While there are a lot of ‘make-do’ alternatives on the market this is by far the most suitable and best quality piece of gear for carrying this type of weapon.
