    Be cheap and it will cost you. Just go out and buy a proper gun case. Cabela's has a great case for your needs.

    The Tuff Pak is a super hard case. The baggage gorillas do not seem to be able to break them. I bought one for my up comming hunting trip to Africa on a reccomendation from a hunter that has been there 4 times. They lock securely and really protect the guns (he uses it for his $18,000 double rifle) so your trap guns should be well protected.

    I've taken Tuff-Paks to Africa multiple times,taking one to Zimbabwe next month.....
    I use a shorter version to carry my Break action shotguns on hunting or shooting trips here and abroad, cased inside in break down Boyt cases,they are about as tough and protected as you can get.....
    Have the benefit of not looking much like a gun case....

    Putting them inside a golf club case sounds like heartbreak waiting to happen. Even if its lockable, I doubt its tamper resistant enough to secure your gun properly.

    If your on a budget, get a boyt takedown case, and transport inside a pelican or storm gun case. Plenty of room for it and some clothes, gear, ect.

    Golf clubs have the highest theft rate of everything stolen out of airline baggage. Why would you want your guns to look like golf clubs???

    just a thot

    these guys make the best gun cases on the planet. If there is not a stock size that fits you they will make anything

    I have six of tehm and they will prolly be around after the zombies are gone.
    Some of my bud's guns went to Africa and back in one of these and they didn't even lose zero w/ the scopes.

    you'll be happy you tried them

    Gary, I have run all over with an SKB case and Boyt takedown soft cases.

    It's very protective and as baggage monkey proof as anything else. I have a plumbing company name and biohazard stickers on mine, tho. :)

    Do NOT use a TSA lock, tho. I think that advice is on their website, even.

    You might be setting yourself up for disappointment at the airport...

    Firearms can only be shipped in airline approved cases - they mean approved for the shipping of firearms.

    I do not think a golf club case will satisfy all airline personell...

    Food for thought.

    Let me suggest you have some of your gear, including your shotguns by either the Post Office or FedX so they will be waiting for you when you get there.

    From your description of your physical conditon you don't want to be keeping track of a lot of different bags -- make it easy on yourself.

    TSA


    The firearm must be in a hard-sided container.


    The container must be locked. A locked container is defined as one that completely secures the firearm from access by anyone other than you. Cases that can be pulled open with little effort do not meet this criterion.
