who makes the best waterproof/airtight hardcase...i work in the wilderness for three months every summer and i want a realy nice hardcase for transporting my black rifle (only taking one to camp) from base camp into the mountain shooting range. We drive trucks exclusively (two wheel drive isnt much good where im at) and i need a case that could protect my rifles from...lets say bouncing out of a truck bed, tumbling down a revine with sharp pointy rocks and landing in a creek. Not that i expect that kind of thing to happen, but if it does the softcase i have now isnt gonna be a bit of help. room for mags and optics is required and one that locks would be preferable.

Pelican cases. I travel by air with tools every week. Pelican cases are the only ones that I've seen that airline baggage monkeys can't kill. They are waterproof, and can be had with or without foam lining. They accept the padlock of your choice. BSW

Doskosport makes nice cases as well.

I'm in ATL with CBP and of all the cases I've run across, PELICAN is the best as far as durability. I was skeptical of that "purge valve" until someone from South Africa arrived and I tried to just open the case. It wouldn't open until I opened the valve and then it sucked in SO MUCH air, very impressive.

Starlight Cases are also an excellent choice!

Pelican or Starlight are your best bets.

What's funny is when you air ship a Pelican case with the old style valve closed. My big case would get all 'sucked down' like it was vacuum packed.

The new style purge valve isn't as dramatic. :{ BSW
