Big case! lots of room

This case is BIG. The pictures don't do it justice. When its standing up, its few inches short of me (I'm 5'9). My rock river AR fits with plenty of room to spare for a couple hand guns or whatever. There's just a lot of space, and while I didn't think it was super heavy when I first got the package, It (obviously) became a lot heavier with my equipment loaded in it. Anything more than a walk from the car to the shooting gallery, and you're going to want to put it down and use the wheels. The first time I took it shooting with me, my buddy drove. He has a hyundai tiburon, and I ended up in the back seat with this case going from the truck, over my lap up to the drivers seat. Point being maybe keep a smaller case around for local adventures and leave this one for travel. Or, you know, have a car bigger than a hyundai tiburon, which I imagine is most of the people buying this case. Benefits of the size and weight are added security. I'm particularly happy with the bulky latches and multiple places to put locks. Nothing is going to harm your equipment inside this case. As for cutting the foam insert, I outlined my equipment with black sharpie, used a new exacto blade to cut the top inch and a half or so (it cut through the foam like butter) and finished the cut with my sheath knife, which required a little bit of sawing but worked okay. My results were good, not professional by any means, but good. Took me about twenty five minutes for the rifle, and about ten when I finally put in my ears and mags. Like anything, slow down for better results. Eventually I'll buy the replacement foam inserts and have a more modular system for different equipment, but that's a ways off for me.

I have had this case for a couple of months now. Damn this this is a long case. But thats what I wanted. I have 4 guns in mine. 2 pistols. a 18'' AR-15. I also have 23 inch mossberg JM 930. They all fit with room to spare. I have 4 mags for my ar and 3 mags for hand guns and some other miss. stuff. I bought a black and decker kitchen carving knife to cut my foam. I am so happy did. It took time to get it perfect. But man it is so nice to have them in this case. And now worries of throwing it around in a truck or on the ground. It is also water proof. It is also really had to be able to pull the top foam out to put targets in behind it. Buy this case. Not the lesser brand. It is worth it to have this one.

Pelican vs. Plano

I own both a Plano and a Pelican now. If you're looking for a simple, inexpensive case for transport go with a Plano. They're fine. If you want a rolling vault of the highest quality, go with a Pelican. The Plano could be cut open with a good pair of kitchen shears and some muscle. The Pelican looks and feels like a blow torch and an industrial drill/saw would be needed. One is comparing a gently used Toyota Prius to a brand new Supercharged Range Rover. Both good cars but two entirely different animals. Also, the four suggested brass colored Masterlocks are small but beefy and high quality. They add to the safety and the fortress like appearance of the case. Not to mention a not so subtle 'Don't even think about touching me' appearance. I would reccomend them. No child will ever be able to open this case with these locks on it making it a good, cost effective alternative to a Safe for keeping children out.

Why buy anything other than a Pelican??

To start with, I live by the saying ''you get what you pay for''. YES, Pelican brand cases are expensive. YES, you can find similar cases much cheaper. NO, they aren't the same! I own MANY different brands of cases, and if you're just transporting a gun or two from your home to the range, ok fine. A Plano or similar case will ''work''. If you plan on transporting your gun on a plane somewhere, or you have a high quality expensive firearm (or camera equipment, computer parts, etc), then just ''works'' doesn't work for me. I have purchased other Pelican cases in the past, and with good reason. They have the highest quality, the most durable materials, and stand behind their products 100%. Pros:Durable, high impact case with 4 latches AND lock eyelets with steel rings for securityhigh quality foam inserts, not the cheap egg crate foamautomatic pressure release valveTSA approved for airline travel (NOTE, not ALL cases can be carried on a plane!high impact wheels for easy transport, also has a top carry handle to give you optionsCons:the case itself is very heavy. you could drive a car or truck over the case and it wouldn't break. Once you load a 10-15lb rifle (or in my case, a 35lb rifle) it's a bit of a chore regardless. price is high - yes, but again you can't expect high quality AND a cheap price. That's not how it worksfoam is somewhat difficult to work with. Plan on spending some time PREPARING to do your cutouts. You don't want to mess it up, since replacement foam is upwards of $30. Plan, draw, review, THEN cut!That's my review in a nutshell. Hope it helps!

Nice case. I put a DPMS LR308 with 24in.

Nice case. I put a DPMS LR308 with 24in fluted barrel and scope along with a 22in AR. It was a tight fit, and I had to glue the cut foam to the bottom layer of foam in order for it to retain its shape. I also sprayed the foam with plastidip to reinforce it.

Excellent gun case

My husband and I are avid Benchrest shooters and need a good durable case to protect our custom rifles. I stumbled across Pelican cases and was shocked at the price however, when looking at the cost of the rifle it's protecting, it's a drop in the bucket. These cases have wheels on one end and a handle on the other so you can tote them around without a lot of effort and they roll on just about anything. They do pretty good at our rifle range in the dirt and sand. They are waterproof. I've left mine outside our RV in a rainstorm and the insides were nice and dry. I've not tried running one over although I do believe the case would withstand our truck driving over it. The foam inside is very durable and it's easy to cut out what you need. The only thing I truly don't like about this case are the snaps. I've pinched my fingers in them a couple times when closing the case. Pelican has a different gun case we use as well, IM3300 and it uses a push button/snap closure which is much easier to use.

I watched DELTA airlines finest drop this case with 2 rifles off the tallest conveyer belt in Texas and slam the ground like rosie o'donnel slipping on a banana peel. Got to my destination and wanted to check zero. BOTH rifles were dead on. no problems, case showed minimal impact. I only use pelican products now!
