    Anyone have a recommendation for a good (not too expensive) locking pistol case that can hold two pistols? I'd like to get one for transporting a couple of pistols in my checked baggage when traveling by air. It would be nice to have room for a box or two of ammo too. It has to be a hard case to meet the guidelines for air travel.
    The pistols would be 9mm with approx 4" barrels and a spare mag for each.
    The more compact the better since I only check one bag.
    Here's one I found:
    CASE-075 - Armortek Portable Locking Double Pistol Case 10x20x4" Steel Reinforced 8 Gauge Steel Cable to Lock in Place
    Anyone have experience with it?
    Thanks.

    10x20x4 seems large for 2 4" guns. Look as Pelican and Hardigg for great cases---but they ain't cheap, and they are heavy.
    Doskicil makes some that are OK for not much money. I use the hard case that my Springfield Armory 1911 came in, with
    the foam re-arranged a bit. Has holes in it for a couple of padlocks, holds 2 guns, magazines easily. I've also used a no-name
    black plastic case from Wally-World. Same deal, no built in lock but holes for padlocks. Probably didn't cost $10.

    I am going to be doing some air traveling soon and was wondering the best way to attach my single pistol GunVault safe to the inside of my suitcase. It comes with a cable but where might be the best place to drill holes or whatever it takes to secure it inside my suitcase. Any ideas?

    Brickman,
    I think you'd have to unzip the liner of your suitcase to find a good connection point. When I've traveled with a gun case in my checked bag it was not tethered.

    Ive got a like new Plano Gunguard Deluxe 4 pistol lockable plastic hardcase with key I'd give you a good deal on. You would just need to put some foam it it. . These retail for around $50-$75. get ahold of me if you want pics
