My Mark II doesn't fit in it's original case anymore because it has different grips on it and a scope.
Holy cow, I thought they just stuck to software!!!
I'm just kidding, I know what your talking about.
For me it doesn't really matter, as my pistol is in a holster, and the rifle is slung, in the trunk of the car, or behind the seats in my truck when it's in transport (ever try to put a MN 91/30 crosswise in a '87 Ranger? Not impossible, but not easy either). Long and short, I don't use any case as I just don't have a need for it. Now the backpack on the other hand, carrying the ammo, it has to get washed occasionally. But due to the nature of the cargo it's only been washed twice; once when a dog pissed on it, and once when I dropped it on a pile of horse manure.
