    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.

    I've got a pelican long case 1750 and I haven't had any issues with it.

    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.
