    Finally I came up with a plan how to utilize backskins from earlier safaris in Africa, a gun case for my Merkel double in 470ne. The case is created by plywood and wood, and covered inside and outside with backskins from blue wildebeast, blesbok and kudu, where the inside lid are covered with the more fluffy neck skin of Norwegian red deer.

    Love it!
    I'd be afraid to travel internationally with it in case I get the wrong customs guy and he demands a DNA test to ensure I am not trying to bring an endangered species back into the US.

    Thanks!
    Please feel free to copy it. The case will only be used locally travelling by car and at the range.
