Default Shotgun scabard?

Does anyone own one of these? Im thinking about buying one as a case for my mossberg 500 i dont really like the traditional zipper bag or the hard cases out there and plus i can carry this with me while i go hunting and trap/skeet shooting because i don have a sling yet and i also dont want to carry an ammo box around some of the scabbards have molle webing on them so i can weave in a shotgun shell pack and my gun wont get scratched up is this a good idea? What do you guys thing? Im looking at the nc star scabbard right now does anybody here own a scabbard? If so what do you think about it do you like it? Can you fit a 28 inch barrel with a standard stock in it? What brand do you have?

My semi-educated guess would be a resounding 'no'.
Most all of the 'tactical scabbards' are made for 18ish" barrels.

If you will look at the pics you posted, and make a guesstimate at grip-to-barrel length...no way a 28" barrel fits.

I have one. Several of my guns fit fine in it. My Rem 870 Special Field with a 21" fits pretty good.

Looks kinda cool, but I would just get a sling. Looks like more of a PITA to pull the shotgun out of, and I would be worried about muzzle sweep myself.

If you look carefully, you can find longer scabbards for the longer-barrelled shotguns. They are tough to get in and out the first couple of dozen times, then it starts to shape to your gun and get smoother. If you like the idea, pick one up and try it. You can always sell it if you find it totally unworkable.

And if the 28 inch barrel dosent fit then i will cut a hole big enough for the barrel and screw in a metal gromet to prevent it from frayin ripping or opening up

Maybe ill sew in a extra piece of canvas or strong material to prevent the bare barrel from touching the ground kinda like a condom or maybe ill drop in an extension made out of steel or a polymer and screw it into the gromet.
