Pelican case or alternative for flight...

Also, when I flew out of PDX, they (tsa) pulled the foam from the top, inspected, closed the case and flipped it over and then pulled the bottom foam to inspect as well; they were very thorough. I think that everything having its cutout helped in this situation.

What is keeping you from cutting the foam for a glove-like fit?

I buy an empty pelican hard case, and put a soft case inside. No foam to cut out and you can change what you carry. I've got one up for sale I bought as a set (not trying to sell you on it) but take a look for reference. I slip soft pistol cases inside where there is room.

Some companies make their cases specifically to fit Pelican cases like the SERT TCC series.

Don’t laugh, but Apache branded gun cases at Harbor Freight are looking more and more legit these days...

Make sure to check the coupon database before you buy anything from HF, an employee there told me about it once and it'll save you a lot of money! Just show them the barcode from your phone and they can apply
Sorry op to take this off course, hope it helps

Pelican case...buy once, cry once. You'll have it for the rest of your life.

But, buy an empty pelican case and use a soft case inside. They're far more versatile and flexible than foam. And you don't have to screw with cutting foam...which essentially makes the case unusable for any other guns unless you buy more foam.

We used Pelican cases in the military and seeing the abuse they can take first hand is the reason we stock pelican cases in store. We currently have the vault line up: V800 V300, and V100. Have had quite a few very happy clients with them. You can also buy replacement foam if you ever change out guns.

I have a smaller Apache that holds several pistols and its has proven very durable. For the $45 I paid I am very very satisfied. Flown with it close to a dozen times now.
