Vermont - Governor Phil Scott held a very public signing of  S. 55 on the front steps of the capitol building which bans Bump Stocks, raises age to purchase firearms, Universal Background Checks, Magazine Bans for long guns and handguns and more. Except for the ban on Bump Stocks the rest of the bill took effect upon the Governorís signature. You can read the bill here: https://legislature.vermont.gov/assets/Documents/2018/Docs/BILLS/S-0055/S-0055%20House%20proposal%20of%20amendment%20Official.pdf         Or at

Michigan Ė Effective Immediately HB 5220 now states you can carry up to 18% Oleoresin Capsicum Sprays and they can have Ultraviolet Dyes in them. Old law only allowed 10% and no other ingredients.  You can read the new statute here.                        http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2017-2018/billconcurred/House/pdf/2017-HCB-5220.pdf

Wisconsin -  The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that a permit Wisconsin issues or honors is required to carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle in Wisconsin.  Wisconsin Statute 167.31     
 http://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/statutes/statutes/167/31   section (c) states:    (c) Except as provided in sub. (4), no person may load a firearm, other than a handgun, in a vehicle or discharge a firearm or shoot a bolt or an arrow from a bow or crossbow in or from a vehicle.
(End Statute)   The court stated that section was added when Wisconsin started their concealed carry permits and that it only pertained to those with a permit. Pro-Gun groups took it to the upper court when lower courts ruled against a man for carrying a loaded handgun in his glove box without a permit and the upper court agreed with the lower court rulings.

I'll see about taking some more pics, and this time with a frame of reference like yardstick and perhaps a closeup or two.

Maybe it's for a single-barrel trap gun?
Or a break-action, single-shot rifle?
Or a .410 double?

If it is home-made, as I conjecture, maybe it was made by a kid to house his own very first gun.
It's the sort of thing that I would've done, when I was a kid.

Yes, helps.
Length is about 30"

At the widest point it's about 8.5"

I tried to put my side by side double 12ga in it, but the place where barrels would go is really too narrow for a comfortable fit.
I believe a single barrel, single shot 12ga would fit nicely in it, but hard to imagine anyone going to that much trouble for a relatively cheap long gun, but who knows?

It looks like a soft case for a take-down side-by-side shotgun (or maybe an over-under).

It kinda looks home-made, but maybe not.

The smaller side compartment would usually be for a jointed cleaning-rod, the top compartment for the buttstock/receiver, and the lower, longer compartment for the barrels/fore-end.

But it's hard to tell, since I can't get a size reference from your picture.

Does that help?

Hello to all! A few years back, some friends of ours were selling their store, that included a gun shop upstairs.
While rummaging through the stuff they were selling off, I came across the leather case in the photo.
I'm quite sure it is for some type of long gun, but no clue just which long gun it is intended for.

I'm sure someone here knows. Please enlighten me!
Thank you, in advance!

When it comes down to it, Facebook is a danger.

I am afraid that it is already to late. The damage has been done.
The younger generation has already been hooked, line and sinker, so to speak.
Just stand on any street in any city and look around.
