Go away.

Nothing useful.

I have tried using bags like that but the ones I have aren't deep enough for a camera body unless you take off the lens. Looks like a nice little range bag though for a small match.

The concept reminds me of a bumper sticker a friend once had on his ute [pickup]:
"This car is insured by Smith and Wesson".

PLEASE limit the discussion to talking about the bag, not politics... ESPECIALLY a topic like that which is bound to fan the flames and will result in the moderators shutting off the thread!

A diaper bag and a haggard look has the same camera concealing properties.

Well, it's not big enough for my camera gear, and I don't think much of it as a concealed carry bag since you have to potentially unbuckle, lift up the flap, undo the zipper and then reach in. At a minimum you have to lift the flap. Nor does it have a dedicated sleeve/pocket to protect the barrel from getting junk in it and cover the trigger. And the strap doesn't have cut protection.


(I can't help it; Mom was a cop.)

I think a post suggesting a gun bag as a camera bag is meant to fan the flames at least a little. There's pro-gun sentiment in at least three posts already, but anti-gun posts are apparently too "political."

Well, I'm a moderator and I'm as sick of it as you.
Fortunately, we have the ability to ban individuals from threads rather than closing the thread and ruining it for everyone else.

Actually, no. I've been looking for a small camera bag for my Q and this may fit the bill so I ordered one and thought I'd share with a wink and a nod to it's original design intentions. My bad. I'm waiting to take delivery of another small bag that I thought was pretty nifty as well. I'll not be sharing.

Someone close and lock this.

I'll handle it myself

No, I won't close and lock this. There was nothing wrong with what you posted. A few members who can't seem to resist turning it ugly will no longer be participating, however.

We need a sticker that reads

I can see where that would work great for a Q.
