Tactical Cue Case - 09-19-2013, 10:07 PM

It seems that all I see are leather cases out there. I love them, and as a Harley guy am no stranger to leather, but I'd kind of like something different. I'm interested in perhaps having a case made to resemble a tactical rifle case. It would be something I'd never seen and would be kind of cool to have all of my shooting gear, wether pool room or firing range, match in style. I'm thinking something along the lines of this:

Would be kind of cool to have the MOLLE attachments to be able to change pouches as I saw fit too.


What do you guys think? Know of anyone who could make something like this?

Have you tried contacting John Barton? I think he would have the knowledge and the resources to pull this off.

Tactical pool gear would be awesome. Those leather cases are old fashioned. We need something new or something that represents a case that holds sporting equipment.

A functional cue case that is sporty like a modern day golf bag. I have old school brown leather golf bag and they are just outdated.

I always wished Nike got into the billiard industry. Think of great cues and cases. They have a fantastic R/D department.

This is fairly tactical if you ask me. I believe you can get this case in tan and green as well.

I was thinking the same thing. I like the leather look as well, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of other options. Sometimes its nice to have something a little different.

I almost bought a pelican to fly out to Vegas with my cues. Decided just to drive instead. I have a few for other things and they are nice, but I want something that is built much like most cases out there, but instead of leather, I'd like one made of ACU Nylon with MOLLE straps. Just think it would look cool.

I guess if I had a cue case like this I'd have to make sure I was grabbing the right bag on the way out the door. It would be a bit embarrassing to pull out a pool cue at the range and a bit frightening to pull out an AR at the pool hall.

Plus you could swap pockets around to reconfigure it any way you want. A detachable 1X2 sleeve or smaller Jump butt pocket would rock, too! Make the whole thing modular. You could also sew on VELCRO swatches to put VELCRO patches/nametapes, logos, etc. Make mine digital camo!

I think you have something there. I hate todays cases like Justis cases. That design has been done to death and copied to death. Your idea is really fresh. If quality made and selling somewhere around the $100.00 to 150.00 range so anyone could afford one, once you got a few pros to carry them you could not keep them in stock.

Definitely a quad rail somewhere too, for 32 lbs of lasers, flashlights, bipods, and aiming devices.

This was one of the big things that gave me this idea. I have a ton of MOLLE pouches for my packs and range bags. Everything has its spot, and if I want to change something, I just swap it out. Would be great to be able to do that with my cue case. I dig the velcro idea too.

Maybe you're right. I may just try to find a custom military pack maker and see if they could do this. Rifle cases go for the price range you had and that takes twice the material a cue case would so I don't see how one would cost much more after a prototype.

Agreed! I own this golf bag and its amazing, tons of functionality and super light/comfortable. Easy carry around bag.

I think changes like these could bring in new players from younger generations, because pool would start to look more "sporty". Instead of lugging grandpas old leather cue case.

I actually used my Voodoo Tactical case recently to take my AR and my cues on a trip to visit a buddy that shoots pool and guns. Put my 2x4 butterfly case on one side and the AR on the other. Worked perfect!
