    Does anyone transport/store their spotting scope and accessories in a Pelican type case?

    I just bought a Vortex Viper HD 20-60x85 and was wondering if I could get a case to keep it from getting dirty and safe from other things when not in use.

    I use my Leupold's 12 - 40 x 60 spotter's plastic hard case BUT I have a Cordura cover from Anarchy Outdoors that stays on all the time. It's padding in case the scope would fall over while on the tripod.

    I carry mine in a pelican case when transporting into a hunting campground as the terrain is very rugged and about 25 miles from the main road. At home I keep mine in the safe. When I go to the range I just placed it in the back seed in the cover it has but not the case.

    Jason, found a nice Pelican at a govt auction. Used an electric knife to cut out foam for a scope and binos for the grandson. The electric knife works great if you take your time.

    Thank you for all the reply’s. Yes the electric knife does work if a person takes their time. That is the way I cut the foam in my Pelican case for one of my rifles.

    here are a few pics . the case is a MTM case-gard . it's for 4 pistols . I don't see a part number on it . P9200002.JPG P9200003.JPG P9200004.JPG P9200005.JPG I have a small table top tripod I carry . I put the scope in a sock to protect it in my pack . I could measure the case ,if you'd like . I'm guessing it cost $20 .
