    Get a Pelican, they are basically indestructible and they have wheels so if you need to you can just wheel it around. I don't find it to be too heavy to carry for everyday use though.

    Go to Cabelas and do a search on BULLET PROOF GUN CASE. I have one and I love it. It has paid for its self a number of times when I have to ship a gun. Even a tester on gun cases marked it as a top of the line case. They dropped it from a buildng, and ran it over with a truck. It still protected the gun like it was suppose to do. I have one that is for 2 scoped rifes and I will in time pick one up for shotguns.

    See my post (and comments of others) on this BB regarding the Boyd case. Highly recommended.

    Do you have a web site that describes or accepts orders for your in-stock Negrini Combo Case?

    Blued-steel. No. Nothing simple like that. You are thinking in American-eze...

    I have many hours in Negrini attempting to be an American source. We (here in America) deal in understanding Windows from Microsoft. They sell across the euro empire out of choice. I order, I pay, I wait, I receive what they send, I do the best I can. I'll know what I have when my latest order gets here. When is that you ask...

    January 2012. Stay tuned.

    I'm a big fan of ysr racers soft case. I have 3 and really like them alot. The only drawback is that the lube you have on he gun wipes off when inserting it into the case. I prefer to lube my gun and be ready to assemble at the track.

    I always used a combo case like racers for my 1100 2 bbl set when I campaigned that.

    What is the brand of that soft case? A picture with no other identifying information is almost useless for those of us who haven't seen that case before.

    Sorry, it's made by Boyt for Cabelas. It's only 50 bucks.

    They have a 30" version, and a 34" inch version

    The Boyt marked ones are about $50 more, but it's the same case.

    Boyt even makes two-barrel cases, and tube cases, but Cabelas doesn't carry those.

    Buy a Negrini from MIA. It will protect the contents to and from the club and it's a LOT lighter than an Americase.
