Meh, maybe overkill, maybe just cheap insurance against damage. The case is "crush proof" and waterproof. Sure made me feel better when throwing the case into my snowy truck bed on the way to the range with some friends last weekend...
Honestly I just think they look completely BA and my new 15-22 didn't come with a case and I wanted something. $200 for a good case for most of my guns was not really that bad IMO.
