I'm going to San Antonio. What shotgun case would you recommend for traveling with my DT10? I was looking at a pelican case but can't find exactly what I should buy.

Pelican/Storm 3100 with custom foam from these guys

mycasebuilder.com

Really simple, take a picture of the gun broken down and trace it in their app and bingo...custom cut foam that fits perfect to the gun and the case.

Or you can put a negrini inside the 3100 for extra safety on the plane but easily usable once on the ground.

I tried to post this earlier and it didn't go through. My apologies if it pops up later. The Americase AT-10 works great. You put your Negrini style case inside it. You have your case with you when you arrive to carry you gun. Reasonable price.

I use a Pelican 1720. I removed all the foam, put my shotgun in a soft case and than pack my range bag, shell pouch, gun sleeve, etc around it. It turns you gun case into more useful luggage. Rtic also makes hard cases now that are a little cheaper.

I like my pelican 1700. You have to breakdown the gun but fits in smaller rental car trunks. 1720 is nice too.

Pelican. Know that some airports will have it come out with regular baggage on the carousel and other will treat it like oversized luggage. I have stickers (BBQ) on mine so I can identify it from a long distance.

Pelican case is what I use for air travel. One of my pelican cases carries medical equipment I depend on for my health and the case has never let me down in 8 years. My pelican camera case has banged around the Galapagos Island, the Andes and Israel to name a few places and other being a bit banged up it has never let me down in 25 or so years. I use an America case for car transportation. I like the Negrini inside a Pelican case idea as I would never trust my Negrini case to the airline apes.

Tuffpak allows you to pack your gun and a bunch of other crap in one bag. Plus nobody ever says, WOW is that a gun case?

Made a lot of domestic trips with my Zoli in a Negrini, it's scratched up but has kept the gun secure.

I would go with something more robust if I was traveling internationally though.

For Pelican users, what’s your recommendations on locking it? I see it doesn’t have integral locks, but is “padlockable”.

For those who put their Negrini inside a Pelican or the new Americase, how handy is it to open up for the TSA or airline inspection? I don’t the Krieghoff Negrini because of the labeling all but says, “steal me”.

With non-TSA locks. The owner is the only person who is legally allowed to posses the keys to a gun case in the air travel system.

A large case will allow you to pack some extra gear inside. It is a pain to carry so wheels are essential. I have switched from a large SKB case (with wheels) to a single gun Negrini with a slip cover that includes a shoulder strap. This works very will for my 32"DT10 and a box of choke tubes.
