There are several ways to carry one of these while traveling, or just going to the Range.

I do not wish to draw attention to myself while carrying, especially with any of the so called Assault Type weapons. The Extar Exp will fit inside most medium size back packs. I modified a Wilson Tennis Racket cover to carry my modified Carbine Pistol. I added a sheet of plastic between the 2 layers of the back, and added straps to it to secure the carbine inside. It is easy too carry, and my neighbors think I am into fitness, going to play Tennis a few times each weekl. :)

I will fix one up for my Extar in the Fall, when I get it.

Harbor Freight has several nice hard cases for items that you want to protect. I use there model 3800 for a couple hand guns, ammo, etc. These are very well built.

The below one is bigger, and the Extar Exp will fit, along with several magazines, and other accessories. These meet Air Travel laws for sending you guns on a commercial aircraft

Harbor Frieght has Sales regulary, Coupons, and 20% Off Coupons.

This is the Apachy case I have for my tradional hand guns.
I Love It.
