Default How do you pack your Shotgun Concealed into Dangerous Country?

Hi, all! I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to this question (perferably those with some experience or insight):

For country that you deem necessary to carry your shotgun with you (not for hunting, except if you decide you have to take out something out of sheer opprotunity), and want to keep it concealed (fully covered), what kind of pack/other do you use? Does it fit in an existing Hiking/other bag?

^Though I prefer someone to answer the above question, let me ask also how you would pack the shotgun with something that won't necesarily conceal it 100%. I know there are scabbards available, but I also saw a picture of some kind of tube shaped pack with a lid that will fit a Cruiser Shotgun in it (saw this one time on the internet, but don't remember what it's called and where to buy it). The one I saw that was tube shaped looked particualiry good and useful (sorry about the mispelling...I hope I'm ready for College Composition 2, LOL).

Is it legal to carry a concealed shotgun? You do mean with a concealed carry permit, right?

I've not tried this, but the pole bag from your tent might serve the purpose & should be easy to attach to your backpack.

Are you writing a book?

I can't think of one instance where I would A) Deem a shotgun as necessary and then B) Deem it necessary to conceal same.

The purpose of a shotgun is many fold, but "concealment" isn't even on the list.

If I need concealed firepower of that size, I am going to carry my .460 Rowland with a couple of hundred rounds...

If .410 counts you could stuff a Taurus Judge in your bag.

Never felt the need, myself. I suppose appropriate-diameter PVC would do as a "scabbard" but I expect that may fracture a law or two in many areas.

Carry open or don't carry. Unless the S has HTF, in which case all bets are off.

Only time I have felt the need, was doing personal security with a senior officer. He liked to play golf.

Ya know, with a pistol grip, a short barreled shotgun fits into one of those golf bags very nicely.

I believe you're referring to the Mossberg J.I.C (Just In Case)

J.I.C.

The JIC is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

I used a guitar case to trasnsport one 12 g mossberg 500 18.5 full stock and a ar15 16" from one side of town to another. Didn't lift any suspicion or never got detained. I highly recommended it.
