Best TSA-OK DR travel case?
      #303969 - 12/08/17 02:30 AM

If you have an opinion about the best TSA-compliant hard travel case for a double rifle, either assembled or disassembled, I would like to hear it. Going on a long trip abroad with an old, valuable double rifle that I do not want to see damaged. Additionally, does anyone else have experience traveling with paper patch bullets? How do you store them to protect them?
Thanks much!

I have a few suggestions that you may already be aware of. So if I am being redundant I apologize..

First I would make sure that double is "SCHEDULED" on you homeowners insurance policy for its full value. And get something in "WRITING" from your agent stating it is covered anywhere in the world. Get a copy of the endorsement and read it for yourself.

As to cased I have been using Boyt and Pelican..both have worked very well for me...back in the day on my first trip to Africa I had a stainless Cabelas cased that held the rifle vertically..worked very well as also..have never had a damaged firearm in any of my travels..they have gone missed for a period of time, but never damaged..another option is a case similar to what my Blaser come in..guessing you could customize the foam to specifically fit your firearm.

I use a Tuffpac that I modified to use a padlock.

Thanks, guys, at this point the TuffPak is the way I am leaning.

You might look at the Americase ? I've used one for years and it's made numerous trips to Africa with no problem.

I used an SKB 2 rifle case to take a .500 double and a bolt .375 overseas. It came with TSA locks but I got two lengths of heavy chain and two pad locks and put a locked chain tightly around each end of the outside of the case. Then I got some duct tape and taped the chain to the case so it wouldn't rattle or catch on things. It worked extremely well during it's journey of 8 different plane rides - 4 each way......

Now I've moved to a pelican for my next overseas jaunt but haven't had opportunity to try it on any long journeys yet.

The SKB case is what I currently use to haul expensive guns back and forth to the range in the back of the pickup. I'm none too gentle and am not above throwing the case roughly over the tailgate and my beautiful rifles don't feel a thing!!

I have had and used a Pelican Case for the last 15 years to Africa and the N.T. and have nothing but praise for the Pelican case.
