Re: Weapons bag
If you really need to protect your iaito while travelling, consider using a plastic rifle case. You have Big 5 Sporting Goods in your area and they sell one for around $25 that will carry all your weapons, sports a solid handle, and is lockable. Hard plastic on the outside and an egg crate foam interior. I have several and have carried both my swords and scoped rifles in them without incident. They aren't elegant, but they are really tough and excellent at protecting the contents.
