    I'm considering purchasing an Americase. I want something I can use on the weekends and when I fly out for a few shoots a year. Does anyone have any experience with that brand of case?

    Thanks

    Go with a Warwick. I have one that is about 8 years old and a ton of air miles. Still in great shape. Paul makes them to last. Paul is a good guy and a good shooter on top of it. Support the shooters. Buy Warwick. Use the link above and check out the cases.

    Gavin, our group travel often enough to say something about AIRLINE PROOF
    TRAVEL CASES. We have had other cases and sad to say we have not lost any
    guns by using ANERICASE, we had a few other cases got damaged to where the airline had to replace the stock, straighten the vent rib, replace a few
    other name brand cases(paid off the owners). I`m not telling what to buy
    but just our experiences with Americase.
    Good luck. pineapple

    Cabella's sells a double, with wheels for $160.00. I have one and it is plenty heavy duty.

    I have a browning gun vault that was built by Pelican and is the same as http://www.casesbypelican.com/pelican_1700.htm without the wheels.

    It is orange which makes it pretty easy to find on a luggage carousel. It is in excellent condition. Foam has not been cut.

    Asking $ 120

    I use a Rhino Case. They are heavy but the airlines can't break them up. The ARMY MTU has used them for years without problems.

    Gavin: go with either a Pelican, Browning Travel Vault (one in the same, see todays post on TS.com) or the new Storm case which is similar but lighter than the Pelican. USA Shooting, US Army Marksmanship unit and many international shooting teams choose these. Nearly indestructable, even by the airlines, weather & water tight. Caz
