    Gun Case

    I am looking for a hard case for my rifle that can withstand the abuse dished out by airline baggage handlers. I have personally seen rifle cases thrown/dropped 10-20 feet onto the concrete tarmac. Does anyone have any suggestions good or bad?

    I haven't had any probs out of mine. It's the Boyt H51 model. I can't say the same for all the wheels on my luggage though.

    I think most airline approved cases are built pretty well.
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    Hard to beat a pelican case.
    I've got half a dozen from binocular sized up to a 1630 and 1750.
    Only had one lock break and they fixed asap

    I've got an SKB, that has survived me for a few years now.. That's no easy task.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
