One of the hardest things on guns is getting banged around during transport. The best thing for your valuable firearms, then, is a sturdy case—and you won’t find anything tougher than the Pelican 1720 Long Case. This stout plastic container has thick open-cell foam and four burly double-throw latches, with multiple stainless-steel locking holes for security. At 42” x 13.5”, the 1720 accommodates a wide range of hunting rifles, assault rifles, and short-barreled shotguns. An O-ring seal keeps out water and dust, while an automatic purge valve allows pressurized air to escape during plane travel. Foldable handles give it streamlined contours. Cutting out spaces in the foam for my rifle and accessories was quick and easy—trace outline with chalk, slice with a sharp knife, voila. To test Pelican’s claim that the case is crushproof, I dropped it from a height, kicked it and tossed it around… I even jumped up and down on the thing with my rifle inside, and never once worried about anything except spraining my ankle. These stalwart cases are made to military standards, and mine will likely outlive me—but just in case, Pelican offers a lifetime guarantee. $260; pelican.com.
