Box I got mine in because I would rather save the $50 some dollars that I would otherwise spend on a gun bag on more BB's. :)

I just put mine in my back seat. If I get pulled I don't have to worry about the cop thinking I was trying to hide it. Most people have mods that don't have the orange tip on it. Last thing you need is looking down the wrong side of the gun from the cop.

Hard sided gun case... Got mine from Wally world for $7 (was a $50 dollar case by Plano that holds 2 scoped rifles and is nearly 6' long but they had it tagged wrong. I have never run out of wally world giggling like a school girl before)

I checked other because you don't have gun case on your list.

Almost every field in my area except a couple of private ones require the gun in a case until you are in the staging area which is usually out of view of the general population of tree hugging, gun hating loonies that live in the Pacific NW.

Pelican 1750 for my more expensive guns (Barrett's, SL9, SSR, etc). I actually bolt the case down to the bed of my pickup, so it can't be stolen.

Cheap rifle case that came in a package deal that I bought for everything else.

I usually put my guns each in a Shemaugh to keep them from scratching on eachother, in the back of the good ol family mini-van. But my Sniper Rifle gets a Pelican case.

Correct definitions are important.
US Servicemen have an M4/M16 = Weapon
Paintballers have a Tippmann A5 = Marker
Airsofters have maybe a JG M4 = Gun.
We need to clairify, Airsoft "guns" are not weapons, they do not kill. They are not markers, as they do not mark. They are "guns" though.
A Rifle, has lands and grooves in the barrel that facilitate a rotation of the projectile, that are collectively known as Rifleing.

I use a yellow duffel bag and plenty of bubble wrap. It actually works pretty well because ammo, mags, etc can all go in different compartments.

Pistols, used to go in my gear most of the time in the holster in the back of the car, but now im using a pistol case
Rifle/Rifles go in either a towel or guitar case or something, need to get some proper guncases but they cost a pretty penny at 50 inch lengths that I need for my G3 and M16

I have a Dragon Missile case that I keep mine in. I got it with the original foam and instruction manual, it's pretty cool. I took the foam out (still have it if I want to put it back in. I then sprayed truck bed liner on the inside and made a custom gun cutout for my rifle. I put the gun in the bottom and my gear goes on top of it. Works great.

All of my weapons have a gun bag or gun case to put them in. I fit 3 AEG's in one bag, 2 AEG's in a case, 2 pistols in a case, and my P90 in it's own bag.

I generally only bring 2-3 AEG's with me to play.

I simply carry it in my hands or the box it came in-where I live (pretty much in the middle of no where) you don't really have to worry about getting the cops called on you or being pulled over when there's no cops and no one to call the cops.

Guys I can't stress how important it is to keep your gun in a case or bag. It doesn't matter if there are cops around or not. It shows that Airsoft players are responsible. Thats why most arenas or fields or stores require you come in with your replica in a case or bag.

1 gun bag for my gas guns, and sniper in the box it came in. They're airsoft guns, I don't need to buy anything fancy to put them in. gun bag's for my (real steel) AK... it holds my KWA MP9, GBB pistol, homemade suppressor, 6 mags for MP9 and 4 mags for pistol, holster and MP9 sling in one convenient, easy to carry case!

I have the option of taking the box the guns came in instead but I'd the to keep those in good condition... if there's no box where do I keep the documentation, receipts, spare parts?
The boxes have been thoroughly reinforced to double as gun cases, complete with a handle. not much can be done the protect the cardboard but structurally they're extremely strong now and unlikely to fall apart form heavy handling use. It's not much work to make it happen, just 15 minutes and four sticks of hot glue.

But my GBB pistol came in some flimsy vacuum formed packaging and that was thrown out years ago... if I don't feel like putting it in a pistol case I can always just toss it in the box with the BB's, gas, and other gear...

I just use the box it came in. Its not like I use accessories. I do this for both my main gun and my side arm, although I probably could put my pistol into my gear bag, I wouldn't want it getting jostled around with the radio, goggles, bbs, and other various items. I've been considering getting a gun case from Fleet Farm, but I haven't had much to put towards airsoft. I haven't been playing much with the school year, and I've been putting a good bit of my cash towards food at school. Until then, I'm going to just avoid spending much on airsoft, other than the event cost.
