Okay so I'm not usually jazzed about cases, but...

 

In November I got to see a really cool pistol case (and some other cases - but) - anyway I mentioned to the creator that it was awesome.

  I did not expect him to remember - but Tyler showed up at SHOT last week and brought a case -- he said he remember what I thought of it - and wanted me to have one.

 

Tyler Grey is a former Army SOF guy (I'm not sure what he shares on his background, but lets just say its very solid...).  

 

He's selling these via GoRUCK 

 

 

Perfect stitching and the zippers are knotted and have a bonded rubber "tube"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

more to follow

I don't see them on the site, however.

 

Any links?

 

EDIT:  It took some digging, on the GORUCK site, but I finally found the page with the pistol rug cases:

Sorry got hung up bathing the kids and getting them into bed with stories etc.

 

  Yeah I was astonished when Tyler showed me some of his stuff - and frankly not to bash GoRuck will be egging him out on his own - as it's almost lost on their site - along with his training stuff etc.

Thank you for posting this. That rug is head and shoulders above the cheap crap I've been using. Looks like I'll be searching for change in the couch.

LOL -- My wife started shooting about 6 years ago - since then I have gotten her 7 different pistol bags - from $25 to $75 each -- none have survived - either velcro has torn out (not impossible to fix) or the bag has literally disintegrated.  

  So while I blinked a bit at the price, it was easy to rationalize when one looks at the cost of guns, and the fact that most cheaper bags fall apart in the space of a year or so.

 

Plus Tyler is an awesome dude.

Kevin,
The price, while a little steep, doesn't bother me too much.
My problem is that I blow the budget on the cool guy stuff and never have enough left over for stuff like this. Enter the garbage Midway bags and liberal thieving, I mean borrowing of my dad's hard cases

I have the rifle case and pistol rug. Bought it as a combo. As with all Goruck products the attention to detail and premium quality reigns supreme. You can drag their shit behind a truck, literally. With their scars program they will fix it or replace it, Lifetime. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for if it fits your needs. The modular pouches that come with everything are great for different loadouts and weapon systems.

Don't look at me in that tone of voice

 

I'll be the first to say it since everyone else seems afraid to do so....those prices are beyond ridiculous.

Nice kit though.

I thought that was client speak for a lawer's bill after a civil suit! My ass still hurts from a bill I got in 2002.

 

Back to GoRUCK the rifle cases look really good, but right now April 15th is looking me in the eye and saying bend over.

How 'bout no.

 

It's a nice case for sure, but maybe too nice.  I tend to use my Mayflower messenger bag as a pistol range bag.  It was only $185, made here, and with arguably more features to include use outside of the range.


Sorry.

For you, and your needs, perhaps.

Buy once - cry once.

 

Not everyone NEEDS top notch gear that can withstand abuse, and then get recycled or DX'd on down time between GO's.  But there are those that appreciate & utilize gear like that.

 

I don't currently NEED anything like that, as I am more in your boat BadMonkey130U.  but, if I did NEED it, it would be bought with GOV $'s and then NOT have to worry about going through supply to get it repaired/replaced.

 

It has got me thinking of other stuff I could use it for than a pistol, as I have other gear that would be nice to have such BOMB resistant protection...

It's $145. Not $245. 

At least that's what your paying currently.

Even at $245 if your as haphazard with gear as I am, it's a great deal.

That is not a bad price that all and this coming from a super cheap ass.
 I mean look  that what you get with this,

 

1 Pistol Rug Wide

1 3-Cell Pistol Mag Pouch Add-On

1 Tourniquet Attachment

1 Multi-tool Pouch

1 Tool Attachment 4B

1 Tool Attachment 4C

1 Vertical Large Caliber Ammo Pouch

 

If you don't need a pouch just take it out! no more seam ripping for a rug that works for you. Plus a lifetime fix it guarantee that bats the crappy $20 wally world case any day.

As an addendum, I hope everyone realizes that none of the pricing issues, whether real or perceived, will prevent me from  buying these.  I knew that should go without saying but I just wanted to make sure it was understood in case any new members were looking at this.  I hate disappointing the newbies.

 

Large black pistol for the 1911....cuz she's worth it.

Actually, at $145 (vs $245), it is much more understandable (especially considering the accessories, as thesupercroc mentioned).

 

At $245, I am nearly 2/3ds of the way to the Glock that would reside in the rug.  I still don't need anything that, um, capable, but it now enters the realm of possible for likely a much larger audience.

I honestly think the pistol rug was almost created for the 1911 in mind.  Do you NEED a $4500 pistol? Nope....Can everybody even afford a $4500 pistol? Nope...But if you WANT and have the means to do so in the way of funding, then you might as well get the best.  The rug is really cool because it actually is a decent bang for your buck.  Its very modular in its design and is so tough and compact that I just stick it everywhere.  Kit backs, backpacks, the Goruck rifle case was built to fit the rug, inside pelicans etc.  Also, I have used it to hold some cleaning equipment and medical supplies, with and wthout the pistol.  Truth be told sometimes I have a habit of just shoving glocks in a bag and carrying on.

GORUCK offers substantial good guy discounts for those who qualify for them....

 

This has saved me a few bucks on purchases. Their CS (and scars) folks are attentive and respond quickly to inquiries and requests for repairs. 

 

I have had good experiences with the company and products and would buy from them again.

Tyler was an operator with the Army's Special Missions Unit, before he was medically discharged for injuries sustained from an I.E.D.in Iraq. Here's a trailer for a documentary that he was apart of, the description for the documentary is below.

That Which I Love Destroys Me is a unique and powerful film by director Ric Roman Waugh. TWILDM is an uncensored look at the current epidemic of PTSD and severe mental trauma that create tremendous challenges for returning service members. A five-year labor of love, TWILDM followed two Special Operations Soldiers as they returned home after fighting in the longest combat campaign in American history only to face a new battle; the effects and stigma of PTSD and reintegration as a whole. But more importantly, the documentary addresses how they're overcoming these issues.

Yes, I just did not want to share as he's been pretty quiet about that and has often taken pains not to tell folks about his background in detail.

Super humble and a fantastic dude.

Copy Kevin, I knew and understood why you were being vague, I figured since he has talked about it in public in the past that I'd just share his background.

I have paid less for used automobiles that served me well.

 

But, the cases do look nice.

Embracing the Pink Bunny

I have the pistol case. I'll admit it's a little overkill for the purpose that it serves, but it holds everything I need for a range session besides eye and ear pro. I'm a buy once-cry-once type of person, so I was fine with the price. I do think for most people, the Rug is a better buy than the Case. I skipped the Rifle Case as I thought there are better, more feature-rich rifle bags on the market. However, I don't think there are pistol cases on the market that are as feature-rich as the GR ones. The warranty is a huge advantage too. I'm not sure how you'd jack your firearms case up, but if you do, it gets fixed ASAP.

 

In full disclosure, I'm friends with a good portion GR HQ, so I may be biased. Kevin, haven't gotten a chance to talk to Tyler for an extended period of time, but that dude is great. Really humble and hilarious.

I was waffling on whether I wanted the case or the rug, but I pulled the trigger on the pistol rug in coyote last night. I cannot wait to get it. 

 

I look at it this way. My pistol is worth about $1800- not including accessories. $145 to protect my investment and keep all those little pieces that like to disappear organized is a small price to pay.

 

People will always bitch about GoRuck and what they charge. Lots of "Who do they think they are? Are they insane?" floating around the interwebz. To them I say, "Welcome to Capitalism". No one is forcing you to spend your hard-earned cash on it. For me? It's well-designed with thoughtful features that fit my needs, executed perfectly, made in the USA, has a great warranty, and supports a great team that gives back. I'm not going to quibble amount money. If I can't afford it, I save until can. Problem solved with no bitching required.

My search is over. These are just about perfect. I will need at least a dozen or so as soon as I can get a loan from the counselor.

 

Converting a couple of the pistol cases to carry two pistols each would be the bomb. Meanwhile the rugs are perfect.

 

 

I've got one of the "rugs".

 

One thing I don't like about it is the internal Velcro/loop material is only attached at the edges. When pouches are pulled the loop material pulls away from the case, feels cheap to me. I would have liked some reinforcement so the loop material was more secure.
