If your rifle is cased, only you know there's an ECI in the rifle.
Uncased, everyone can verify the rifle has an ECI in the rifle.

Since everyone on the range is a safety officer, an uncased rifle saves everyone the trouble of having to ask, got a chamber flag in that rifle?????

Good luck with that at ranges that required cased firearms.

Seriously, not all ranges have the best safety rules, not all people at the range know about or have ECIs. So the assumption is that few people bring the firearm to the range laying loose in the trunk, therefore use the case.
Just as an ECI indicates no round in the chamber and open action, a case at least indicates no finger on the trigger.

All your doing with a case is covering the problems up.

Seriously, we were only talking about a case which has the sole function of protecting a fire arm.

What other reason would there be to have a case?

Certainly we, on the CMP forum, can over-complicate this.
Think of the variations in the M1951 case, and prior versions as well. Should they be used with the ECL inserted, or should it only be added after removal? And which end should the sights face, towards or away from the zipper?

Oh, the quandary.

You mean you always ride to the range with your rifles uncased? Not a good idea.

I don't like the idea of getting grease on my horse's side as we ride into battle. He doesn't much care for the op rod handle biting in to him either.

Never, ever, whatever!
In AL we stack them like wood on the dashboard.

When I go to a new range I always go inside first to get the rules. As long as they have some system I am good; those without a plan are usualy not re-visited.
