Packing Heat

Last Sunday some friends and I went paintballing.  The largest game we have ever put together with 22 players in total.  In the past whenever I went paintballing I had to pull the barrel of my gun off to fit it into a bag.  I have always found this annoying, because I have to also pull off my sling, and then putting it all back together is always a pain.  So this time I searched for a convenient alternative

I found it in my guitar case.  It fits the gun perfectly and this does make sense, because guitar cases are shaped almost exactly the same as rifle cases.  Since I am already posting about my paintball gun, I might as well give a good pictures of my setup.

For those of you who know something about paintball.  I have a Tippmann 98 Custom (pre anti-chop), a five point adjustable stock, a weaver rail with red dot scope, a barrel mounted rail with bi-pod, a three point tactical sling, in this picture I have my 14 inch barrel mounted, but I also use a 21 inch and I run a remote line.  For those of you who don't know anything about paintball, Blah blah blah blah gun blah blah.


  1. The musical instrument case has a rich tradition with mobsters - recall the violin case of the Al Capone era.

    I didn't know you played guitar! I have the same Fender Strat!

  2. It's actually a Fernandes (Japanese)I used to play guitar back in the 5th grade (so around 13 years ago), I haven't played in years.

  3. I don't know anything about paintball, and to be precise, it sounded more like:

    I have a Blah 98 Custom (pre Blah-Blah), a five Blah adjustable Blah, a Blah Blah with Blah Blah Blah, a Blah Blah rail with Blah-Blah, a three point Blah Blah, in this picture I have my Blah Blah Blah mounted, but I also use a Blah Blah and I run a Blah Blah.

  4. and right- very nice of you to embrace the "rich tradition" of using musical instrument case, thanks for pointing that out Eebie!
