Great product holds up exceptionally well. This is my second case the first one was one of the first ones made, and it was a slightly smaller form factor. Didn't hesitate to buy a new one. Hi Rib gun fits perfectly!!!

My son and I had been looking for cases after we bought our Blasers and Briley tubes. None seem to fit what we were looking for. They were too big and bulky or they would not protect the tubes. My son did added research online and found this case. It sounded good so we ordered one for each of us. We are very pleased; they are much better to handle and carry than hard cases of a similar size. The case design is very good. I would suggest dividers in the side pocket to keep the various items separate. We use zipper bags for organization.

The thought process in making this case is top notch. It is a very strong case and protects my Kolar's 2 barrels and tubes I put in it. I highly recommend this case. It seems whatever Red Oxx makes comes out beautifully and again top quality.

I bought this case as a birthday gift for my son who shoots skeet competitively. I asked him for his thoughts after having used it in his most recent match. "I love it!" was his net summary.

Ordered this gun case after seeing one that a friend of mine had, the craftsmanship and quality is outstanding and it fits in my Tuff pak travel case perfectly.

You asked for input on this order. Your service was fantastic! This product had one QC issue, and the manufacturer scrambled to correct it and your team scrambled to provide an interim solution (PVC tube holders that come with the case), and then shipped everything to me overnight to a hotel I was staying just so I'd have it with me for a competitive shooting clinic I was attending over Labor Day weekend. Couldn't have asked for more, or better, service all-around. And Mike Schmidt gets A+ (A3, really) for design and effort.
However, after two tries at correction/replacement, one of the PVC inserts for the .410 tubes still doesn't fit correctly. The custom sized PVC pipes fit all other sub-guage tubes perfectly, and one of the .410 tubes, but the one continues to be so tight around the chamber/extractor end on my Briley tubes I have to pull the PVC and knock the .410 tube out from the other end to remove it from the case. Not a biggie, and easily solved with some sandpaper and Dremel tool, but one of the slick little advantages of this bag is the fit of those tube protectors, and left uncorrected a hassle that reduces the usefulness of the product. When breaking out the tubes to change at shoot-offs, it definitely takes an extra effort and time to pop that one little .410 tube out, which isn't what you want to be focusing on in the 5 minutes to change tubes, grab the right boxes of ammo and report to your field. Seems to be solely an issue for the .410 tubes, so if you're seeing any other comments like this, something to examine. The only other quality issue I'd mention is that, when I got the PVC tube protectors, they hadn't been washed or cleaned out, and my tubes came out with PVC dust from the fabrication process (I assume), which I had to clean off my tubes and swab out. I didn't notice it until I had malfunctions with my extractors and found the dust deposits at all the contact points down the length of the tubes after pulling them from the PVC. Again, no biggie, and you were rushing to get me the tubes overnight, so probably not typical.
The only design improvement I could suggest would be to stitch in some compartments/loops or holders in the big side-pouch for gear (knock-out tools and mallet, choke cases, spare spring and firing pin kits, etc.). It would help to keep the accessories organized and handy rather than having to "root around" for the particular tool needed. It's a great bag, and this is just another upgrade that would make it "more perfect".
Otherwise, I love this bag and have happily dragged it around for 4 months and counting to countless sessions on the practice field and 5 competitions including the World Skeet Championships. It is a huge improvement over the weight and bulk of my Americases, works great with my TruckVault, actually leaves some doubt in peoples' minds what I'm hauling back and forth from my car through hotel lobbies, and has done a fine job of protecting my guns and gear. Looks good, and has drawn quite a few comments and compliments. A much better piece of gear than the Boyt counterpart in my opinion. My Americases are permanently retired. Rather than post these comments, if you'll confirm the .410 PVC tube fit thing is fixed, I'll post a well-deserved favorable review on your website.
I was hoping you might be represented at the World Championships by someone on Vendor's Row. If I'd seen you there, I'd have bought a second bag already! There were a lot of folks walking the Row looking for soft bags to replace their Americases. If you can find a distributor for the Briley shoot at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio scheduled for March my guess is you'd sell quite a few of these bags.
Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between the Gun Runner, Flat Dog and the ReddiCase?
The Flat Dog
is a rifle and shotgun slip with a soft lining but no padding, Gun Runner
is a fully padded rifle or shotgun soft sided case and the ReddiCase is designed for professional competition shot-gunners shooting Wing-shooting, Skeet and Trap and Sporting Clays using a variety of gauges with a take-down shotgun. The ReddiCase Competition Shotgun Case allows you to take your various competition shotgun barrels with you in one bag.
What is the maximum barrel length in the ReddiCase?
Full length of the shotgun case is 34 inches. Measure the entire length of your shotgun from muzzle to chamber, and from chamber to butt. The take-down pieces will fit into individual lined pockets inside the case.
What are the six tube pockets for?
Each pocket holds a competition barrel tube such as 410, 20, or 28 guage at two of each kind of barrel.
What is the long side pocket for?
You can store your barrel changing and choke tube tools in the long flat pocket and a couple boxes of ammo.
Is there a way to securely lock the pockets on my Shotgun Case?
Sure, you cans use any TSA approved bag lock
or try our Cable Lock
for a simple, semi-secure solution. Watch this video where CEO Jim Markel demonstrates how you can use the cable that comes with the product Dog Tag
price tag to secure your bag
. Keep in mind, any determined thief can still cut open a soft sided bag with a sharp knife.
My zipper broke. The teeth have separated. Do I send it in for warranty repair?
No need for warranty repair, try fixing it yourself. Check out this video where CEO Jim Markel shows how easy it is to do it yourself.
What shotguns will fit the ReddiCase?

DESIGNED BY AN AMERICAN SKEET SHOOTER.
Montana Skeet Competition Shooter Mike Schmidt Jr. worked with us to develop this custom personal proprietary design. The Red Oxx ReddiCase is the only wingshooting competition shotgun case that is endorsed by Mike. Any other case you may see with this similar layout and design is a cheap imported knock-off, and it will NOT protect your shotguns nor will it last forever like the ReddiCase!
Said Mike, "I got tired of a competitor's shotgun case constantly falling apart from the abuse of handlers at airports. I knew Perry at Red Oxx would build me up a new case that held both my shotgun and all my competition barrels. It works perfect for take down shotguns up to 34 inches. The PVC pipes that come with the case are beveled so you don't ream your finger's cuticles pulling them out, and of course, the pipe is high quality industrial grade.
There's more padding than other cases and I really like the "Euro" rubber tube carry handle. My ReddiCase Shotgun Case can weigh up to 50 pounds when I have all my competition barrels and my take down shotgun packed in there. Guys at the range always ask me about it when they see it and they all want one. I even had one guy just hand ME a check! I'm glad this take down shotgun case is now available for competition Skeet and Sporting Clays shooters."
A COMPETITION SHOTGUN BAG BUILT LIKE A TANK?
Our customers like to define our gear as "built like a tank". While obviously you're not going to be toting around competition breakdown shotgun cases that weigh 100 tons and have three inches of armor plate, still the comparison is valid. For a soft sided shotgun bag, the ReddiCase is built tough. Starting with the most durable textile material available, 1050 weight CORDURA® Ballistic Fabric Nylon, we use a proprietary super strong UV resistant thread that is double stitched into every seam.
BOUND AND BAGGED.
Places where two separate pieces of fabric are stitched together are then bound, that is, we take a long piece of one inch wide nylon webbing and fold it over the edges of the two pieces and stitch them together, this creates a strong seam, or binding, that prevents the pieces from unraveling on the inside of the bag, or gives it a clean finished look if on the outside of the bag.
BINDING INSIDE / BINDING OUTSIDE.
In addition, each exposed fabric edge, such as on a pocket flap, is also bound using a thicker binding material. Inside edges typically receive a thinner nylon webbing, whereas outside corner edges that are exposed to wear will have a thicker nylon binding. All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in less expensive imported shotgun cases that brag of "binding" their edges.
WHY DOUBLE BOX STITCHING?
Each stress point, such as where the handles attach to the case, is double box stitched - which is where we get the "double xx" in our name, Red OXX; a stitching practice we adopted from our service as parachute riggers.
MY, WHAT BIG ZIPPERS YOU HAVE!
The reason Red Oxx uses the largest zipper we can afford, the #10 YKK VISLON® zipper, is that they are easily repairable, even in the field; they will hold their place, that is, they "lock"; they are difficult to penetrate, thereby increasing the security of your shotgun and accessories; they function smoothly in inclement weather and they can be yanked from a variety of angles without losing teeth or becoming separated.
PUTTING THE HARD IN HARDWARE.
Red Oxx has occasionally been accused of "overdoing" our hardware. But once you've had a cheap piece of plastic hardware break in the middle of a Skeet shooting competition, airport or other inconvenient locale, dumping your beautiful precious shotgun and all your shooting acessories all over the filthy ground, having a heavy-duty nickel-plated or stainless steel D ring or attachment swivel that weighs just a little more, is a shotgun competitor's confidence builder and peace-of-mind maker. After all, you want to enjoy your shooting tournament and not fear damaging your high-end shotgun. Why worry about having your competition shotgun case break down? You want a breakdown case, not a broken down one.
