Our testing procedure was to shoot, swap barrels, shoot, and swap barrels again. We were able to get good accuracy out of these rifles, perhaps as good as rifles that are not takedown models. The DRD and Windham came in Plano hard cases, the Ruger came in a soft case. For regular transport, we acquired a VooDoo Tactical Discreet Level III Assault Pack, which is a discreet looking knapsack-size pack (17 by 8 by 3 inches) you would carry gym clothes in. The Ruger carry case is slightly larger (22.5 by 7 by 7.5 inches) and has Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE, pronounced Molly) straps, definitely making it look more tactical and less discreet. Also, a removable patch with the Ruger logo is on the bag. The padding in both knapsacks hides any outlines the rifle might make. The main section of the VooDoo pack holds the complete lower assembly with an optic mounted and the barrel assembly. The second compartment holds the handguard. Two smaller outside pockets could hold a total of six 30-round magazines. The Ruger knapsack has three pockets, one of which holds the lower, while the other two pockets hold the upper/rail in one pocket and the barrel in the other.
