I do. I have always had a few of them, but when I moved last year, I tried to buy enough to put most of my long guns (milsurps) in for transport. They were pretty economical when you bought them in bulk from Amazon, like 6 at a time. After the move, I left most of them in the socks, which are silicone impregnated.
It allows me to squeeze the rated number of rifles into my safes.
I have used them for guns that don't have optics on them, sure. For my scoped/ red dot equipped guns though, I prefer a hard case.
Same. Every long gun is in a sock in the safe.
The rifle socks I use stretches to fit rifles with optics of all sizes. Or are some of you guys conflating storage with transport here? Or confusing rifle socks with pistol rugs?
+1. They were a lifesaver when I was a more migratory creature and less attentive to my tools.No, but I do use these on my shotguns.
