Had buddy once that carried his Galil around in a guitar case that he customized inside with cut foam padding.

I'd actually agree with JD on this one. A 16" barrel CAR-15 can be broken down fast and quicky into two separate halves and stored in all sorts of inconspicuous cases.

An FAL breaks down fairly decently also, as does a G3.

That's how Mad Mike Hoare and his crew of mercs got into the sh^t when they tried to stage a takeover of the Seychelles Islands back in '81.

Hoare, a merc of some repute and notoriety, had 53 mercs and tried to infiltrate 43 of them into the country through the airport as a rugby team and members of a beer-drinking group called the Ancient Order of Frothblowers. An advance unit was landed ahead of time and was waiting for them.

At the airport one of the customs inspectors pulled an AKM out of a golf bag.

Oops....

Since they were already at the airport, after a brief firefight they 'commandeered' an airliner belonging to Air India and immediately booked themselves a flight back to South Africa to keep from disappearing in a Seychelles prison or worse.

Back in South Africa they stood trial and a few of them went to prison for 1 to 5 years - not for the mercenary action but for hijacking an airliner. Hoare (already in his 60's at the time) was sentenced to 10 years but got out in 2-1/2. To pay for his lawyer, his wife sold off the 1 million plus rounds of ammo he had in the basement of their South African home.
