I'm buying a fusil which has an OAL length just shy of 58".

This will not fit in any of my soft or hard cases. What do people here do for transporting their long guns?

My longest rifles are 38" and not that tough to find suitable soft cases. Also had a friend make me one out of thick camo flannel.

Silicone-treated gunsocks from Midway. Old-school naugahyde gunsocks as well sometimes. Gunsocks are longer than the gun, fold over and ties the strings. Even a caveman can do it.

I have one soft case from Unique Cases -got it in the longest length to be able to transport anything I may need to the range or field. Highly recommend Unique -may not be HC, but good protection, function and price.
Like many others, I use silicone gun socks (Midway USA has a 72" length and Allen has a 66") to keep them from bumping together in storage.

I use a soft case made from fleece. Simply fold over and sew. Then turn sewn side in. Works quite well. Softer and slightly more protective than canvas ones. Make it long enough to fold the end over with a tie.
I do the same but incorporate an outside layer of a more durable material such as pillow ticking, canvas, or upholstery material.

the log cabin shop sells padded zipper cases that are meant for long guns. They are made by Ace. Cheaper through log cabin than Ace

My Virginia rifle is 58" too, I bought a soft case from Unique Cases. Very nice soft case with a pouch for the range rod. They are available in several lengths.

I use some leather cases that were made at home. Put together just for my long rifles. They fit nicely in the bed of the pickup truck. I haven't figured out a way to safely carry them on the motorcycle yet.

The Log Cabin Shop. Heavy lined fabric with zipper for Longrifles. Affordable. I have several. You will not wear these out.
