How to store my O/U

When buying a case for my O/U, should I buy a case to hold the full length of the gun or is it better to store the gun broken in half in a smaller case?

If you are talking about a travel case, for hunting or trips to the range, I prefer a case that holds the gun in assembled condition. And I like the soft cases. I've tried a number of hardcases and don't really like them. Too bulky and hard to store. And soft-cases will provide ample protection from all but the most extreme damage.

A break down case would be fine if it is fitted for your gun. But, they will be spendy to get a good one. Otherwise I feel there is too much chance that parts can rattle around and get dinged a little. I really don't like the fitted factory cases like you get from Remington or others. I've seen on an 11-87 my buddy had, were it wore some of the bluing off the barrel from rubbing in the case.
