  • Publication number: 20190086180
    Abstract: A thin, flexible protective firearm cover is disclosed. The firearm cover can comprise a narrow barrel portion to receive and enclose a muzzle end of a firearm, a butt portion to receive and enclose a butt end of the firearm, and an intermediate portion between the barrel portion and the butt portion. The intermediate portion can have a size-adjustable opening that flexibly expands to allow the firearm to pass through. Reducing the size of the opening draws the butt portion and the barrel portion toward one another to secure the firearm cover about the firearm when the firearm is disposed in the cover. The firearm cover is thin and flexible to provide for compact storage of the firearm cover when the cover is not in use.
