With less than a week before departure to Zimbabwe for a safari, I suddenly remembered I was supposed to purchase a Flat Dog Gun Slip (I'd meant to for months & just forgot). On a Friday evening, in panic mode, I accessed the website and was disappointed to learn the color I wanted was on backorder. A frantic email was sent & I waited. Before 8 a.m. on Monday morning Christian emailed me to address my inquiry. He told me how to place the order, with comments, and assured me he would follow it in the Red Oxx system. Unbelievably the item shipped on Tuesday and arrived several days in advance of my stated deadline. What amazing customer service, support and follow-up/follow-through. Thank you so much to Red Oxx and Christian!!!!!
The Flat Dog gun slip worked perfectly for our safari and is so easy to pack. Again, thank you!!

We took three Flat Dogs to Zimbabwe July 2015 for use in the Land Cruiser gun rack. Worked perfectly keeping the rifles dust free and padded. Rifles were easily accessed when needed. Two thumbs up!

Great slip, but why not offer one a little slimmer for shotguns? Seems it would be easy to do. Present one works ok but has lots of excess material. I'd buy a shotgun slip in a second.

I've used this case a few times for a .22, but it has been mostly collecting dust since I normally shoot larger calibers where this case isn't the best fit. However, tonight I decided to see if it fits my 48" Hi-Lift jack to keep some of the oil from getting all over the inside of my Jeep (I don't have an exterior mount right now). It's not a 100% perfect fit but darn close. Some of the base is exposed, but it works well enough to breathe new life into this case. If only I bought it in red instead of olive!

Was on backorder, but still shipped very quickly. I have had one for several years, but needed another. I have used this soft case for many trips to Africa, Canada, and the U.S. The best for packing small and airline travel where I have limited luggage space. All other soft cases take up way too much room when packed. My rifles have spent many hours in this case , in the gun rack on the back of a truck, with no damage to case or gun and no dust!

Finally, a gun slip that provides basic protection of the gun on the hunting vehicle BUT which can fit with the gun in the hard gun travel case. Previously, every soft case I had considered or bought was too bulky; they would have protected the gun, but prevented the gun case closing with it inside. It's one of those highly practical things that simply makes you wonder why no one had thought of it before. I took it on hunts to Kyrgyzstan and Turkey with me the past year, and in every instance, it was perfectly functional.

Excellent product - excellent protection for a rifle when carried in a boat. Not as rugged as a hard plastic case, but very good protection nonetheless and takes up a lot less room. Love the ties on the top as opposed to zippers or velcro.

This bag is simple, sturdy and effective. Although I will also use it to tote my Winchester '73 replica, I primarily bought it to transport a replica 16th Century cut and thrust sword! Fits perfectly!

As with all Red Oxx items I have purchased, the Flat Dog Gun Slip met and exceeded all expectations. From my experience with Red Oxx, they only design and sell products that will not only outlive any comparable product but most likely the purchaser as well. The quality and craftsmanship is beyond compare and I would recommend this product to anyone considering a gun slip. Best thing about making a purchase from Red Oxx is that you will only have to buy it once. Keep up the good work.

Another extremely well made product from Red Oxx. This product is perfect for protecting the wood stock on my rifle. Highly recommended.

As with all my Red Oxx purchases, I did my research and came to the conclusion that it's worth the money to buy a high quality American product. Mind you, I found another slip that's made in the USA for 1/10th the price, but there's no way the material and quality is even comparable and I'm sure that one doesn't have this great lining. No regrets buying this. I got it mainly to transport my scoped .22 to and from the range, but I was surprised to see my Mossberg 500 with pistol-grip Knoxx Stock also fits easily in this case. Makes me think an AR without the magazine would fit too depending on the height of the optics. If I really wanted to, my 30" barrel O/U shotgun fits with just a little bit sticking out the top (but that rides safely in its take-down case). I can't imagine there are many rifles or pump or auto-loading shotguns that won't fit in here.

Obviously a great item for anything from my Winchester 94/22 and Marlin 336C (neither with a scope) to my scoped rifles.
I have a number of Boyt and Cabelas canvas cases and like them a lot...but they won't do what the FLATDOG does... for travel and packing it will also protect a couple of cased or uncased 3 and 4-pc fly rods and maybe a reel bag, or a 2-pc spinning rod with the reel attached. I don't miss the zippers because the FLATDOG is fast, light and tie-secured to just the right length.
By Mike J., Texas, June 10, 2010
Great quality and easy to pack. I will taking two of these with me next week on trip to Africa. Should be perfect for protecting my rifles in the gun rack on the Land Cruiser.

Bought a 10/22 for my wife with a purple and grey laminated stock. The amethyst gun slip is the perfect compliment. Color is dead on purple. Very well made and sized right. I'll be ordering more for my other rifles. Is there a pistol version?

Got my Flat Dog in last week and tried it out this past weekend coyote hunting. We hunt coyote with July hounds and it's in and out of the truck all day long and your rifle or shotgun takes a beating or should I say that in the past tense. The Flat Dog is thin and light and slips on and off quickly, my favorite custom rifle or shotgun will be well protected and I won't be inconvenienced taking that extra care.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between the Flat Dog Gun Slip, Gun Runner, and the Varmint Master Tactical Sniper Case
The Flat Dog is a gun slip with no padding and is primarily intended for storing rifles and shotguns. The Gun Runner is a padded rifle case for field use and the Varmint Master is designed for sniper, tactical, long range target and varmint style rifles with extra long target barrels and large long range scopes with added pockets for the extra shooting gear that comes with long range precision shooting.
Is the Flat Dog Gun Slip padded?
The Gun Runner is a padded rifle case. The Flat Dog serves merely as a protective storage rifle slip without padding.
What's the lining fabric in the Flat Dog Gun Slip?
The Flat Dog is lined with a soft industrial quality Velour upholstery that will not scratch your rifle or shotgun.
Will the Flat Dog allow for a mounted bipod?
Depends on the type of bipod. We've managed to get a 24 inch SAKO bolt action rifle with scope and bipod into a Flat Dog Gun Slip but it was a tight fit.
What is the maximum barrel length in the Flat Dog?
Full length of the gun slip is 48 inches. Measure your gun from muzzle to butt.
My zipper broke. The teeth have separated. Do I send it in for warranty repair?
No need for warranty repair, fix it yourself. Check out this video where CEO Jim Markel shows how easy it is to do it yourself.
