In the future I will be traveling with 2 guns to an IDPA match up there in the Carolinas via plane. I will be taking 2 guns (regular plus a back up) but since airline requires to have all guns in ONE case, I did a search for airline approved cases and came up with two nicely priced cases.
ADG Sports 31036 - Two Pistol Aluminum Range Case
SportLock 00002 - AluminumLock Double Pistol Case
Both cost the same so I am wondering if anybody has them and can give recommnedations about one or the other or both.
Get at minimum a case that will hold four guns, you may not need it now, but you'll probably need it later, I thought about the two gun thing, but most commonly I've got 4 or 5 stuffed in there...
Edited to add, the larger case will also store mags, knives, etc. more easily than the 2 gun case.
I have one of these that I just stick in my luggage, it's a good case, but I don't care for the camo...

Just to be sure it isn't notice, I cover it with an old sea bag (duffel bag to you land lubbers & grunts)....After I pick it up from baggage claim, I take the sea bag off & roll it away.
Inside the case I have riveted pad lock hasps to run cable lock thru the firearms & attach to the case. That way if the case is opened, you aren't getting the firearms with out taking the whole thing.
Heck of a loss if someone sees a gun case with several nice guns...happens all the time.
Only a consideration, but don't some airline rules limit the number of weapons and the amount of ammo...:confused:
I would certainly be making some phone calls...
There's plenty of subject matter on that topic elsewhere on the forum, IIRC there's a thread on it in the reference section.

I'll see if I can find the thread I'm thinking of...

As per Delta, you can take up to 5 guns in ONE case and 13 pounds of ammunition.
And thanks for the responses.:smile:
