Re: Gun Cases

This case is bullet proof and the one I used to haul two rifles to Wyoming from VA. Flew to Chicago and changed planes - this means the case probably took a beating.....

I've got one too, but the roto-molded one they make is better.
As noted, if I ever fly with rifles instead of drive I'll upgrade.
The extra $100 is worth it.

Re: Gun Cases

FYI - just had a price drop on the black one here:

http://www.amazon.com/SKB-Military-Standard-Double-Weapons/dp/B001B92GO2/ref%3dsr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1318275486&sr=8-1
I notice that the price does fluctuate a bit on Amazon.

Re: Gun Cases

My Russian telescope, worth more than any of my rifles, lives in a Pelican case.

My bass guitar lives in an SKB case.

My best rifles cases are ADG Sports, but they aren't going to Africa, they just ride around in my truck. The ADG case is much lighter than Pelican or SKB, but not as strong. It is airline rated, and looks better than Pelican or SKB.

If you can afford a trip to Africa, you can at least afford a Pelican or SKB case. Your porter/guide will be hauling your gear around, so the extra weight shouldn't bother you.

I'm sure there is something lighter and stronger out there at an astronomical price, such as kevlar or something.
