    I am moving to Alaska tomorrow, and part of my journey will be by train. I am planning on bringing my firearms along, but my rifle case is apparently not up to snuff for rail travel. So I need to buy a hard sided locking rifle case today, and if possible I hope not to break the bank.

    Where in town would you recommend I shop for this particular item?

    Thank you for your time.

    You can also look at Fishermans on McLoughlin in Oregon City.

    +1 on both Wholesales Sports and Fisherman's. I've seen the type case you are looking for at both stores.

    Yup, they all sell Pelican cases. It's going to cost you $250 -/+

    Be careful if traveling through Canada with guns. Make sure you know the laws in advance.

    No traveling through Canada, luckily. I take the Amtrak up to Bellingham, and from there I ride the Alaska Marine Highway System all the way to Juneau with no stops on Canadian soil. I have checked with the AMHS people and with the Amtrak people and as long as I have all my guns unloaded in a locked, hard sided case I am in the clear.

    Amtrak's policy on firearms is much more strict than the ferry. On the boat, they only told me that you have to check them with your baggage, and I am not allowed to carry more than 65lbs of ammunition with me. Amtrak has a several page PDF file outlining the finer points of their firearms policies.

    Plano Protector double scoped rifle case at Dick's for $40. Not too shabby! OK, it's off to Alaska now, wish me luck.
