Has anyone heard of the cases by Michael Manning? Does anyone own one by him? What is his usual price range for a bari case if known?
...One night I was aboard a ship that was struck and destroyed by lightning. I managed to lash together several Mike Manning Custom Cases and created an unsinkable raft. I rode that raft all night through a terrible storm, persevering 50ft waves that ultimately smashed that brave raft and I into a rocky coast of mystery and danger. I woke in the morning to find the cases scattered about, yet their contents remained completely undamaged. I cannot stress the greatness of these cases. I've heard that Mike Manning himself has impenetrable skin and cannot be destroyed by conventional weapons and that he mixes a tiny amount of his blood into the fiberglass resin. I can't confirm this, but its the only explanation that makes sense.
