    I just use a Kolpin hard plastic case with the generic mount they sell at sportsmans. Used this style for years and seems to work just fine for me.

    Personally I just prefer to use those simple little v' s that strap the gun on the front rack. The gun boots always seem to be in my way or hangin up on something and I have mounted them on the front, back. Forwards and backwards.

    I hunt off a four wheeler a lot and have tried several different versions of the gun boot/ brackets and never found one that worked well for what I wanted. Like Bear said they were always in my way and they take a longtime to get your gun out. I use the y or v brackets with rubber straps mounted as far back on the front rack as i can get them. I keep my guns in a soft case and strap them down in the brackets and it holds great and protect my guns beautifully. I have rolled my wheeler twice with my gun in the rack and they stayed in and where protected by the rack and handlebars. Additionally, I can get to my gun in less than a minute and still have room for a bag or gear on my front rack. If I were just getting on and riding a trail from point a to b then I may consider a boot but for active, aggressive riding or the need for quick access, I prefer the simpler rubber coated finned y or v brackets. Best of luck on your drawing permits...

    All good info GD. I have been using Kolpin boots forever on all my wheelers and sleds over the years so I have gotten used to them and can access the gun very quickly. I also know how to ride so I don't roll my rigs down mountains! Just pokin fun at ya I know some folks that prefer to have the gun on their front or back when riding as well. Everyone will have their own preference and it may take a few tries to figure out which one works best for each person.

    Good luck to you as well. I need to call one of these days and catch up on stuff.
