After many years of wear, tear and discolorations on my old el-cheapie soft rifle cases, I finally broke down the other day and bought me a black 53" Pelican double scoped rifle hard case w/ some wheels on it!
 
Unless you shoot at it, this thing appears and feels as though it`s indestructable!!
 
Anyone else have a Pelican hard case?? 
 
I even jumped up and came down very hard on it!Yippee............No affect!

I have one, an old travel vault that's 15+ years old. Back then they didn't come with the wheels and fold down handles the current ones have but it definitely does the job. Your right, it's pretty tough!! Thunbs%20Up

That's gonna be my next case.  I made the mistake of purchasing a 100 dollar double rifle case and now it needs to be replaced cause it broke.  Should of spent the money the first time.

I don't have a Pelican rifle case, but I have a couple of smaller Pelican cases for my optics.  They are indeed extremely tough, and they protect the contents very well!

use pelicans for transporting the high dollar stuff, another really good case are SKB and especially the lower costing Freedom model.

I called Pelican today and apparently these cases have the strength to withstand a Hummer running over them!!Shocked......And I thought that I @ 240lbs., could give it a REAL good test by jumping up and down on it??..Laugh

We use them to ship almost all of our test equipment around.  Have never had a piece of equipment shipped in a Pelican damaged.  They are well worth the money.
