I'm in Iraq and I need some gun case advise

10 posts in this topic

I'm coming home soon and my parents are driving my car to North carolina for me. Trouble is my trunks on my car are small and I need to get my gold hunter down here in a case so I can fly back during Christmas with it. My trunks are 32" wide 16" tall and 8" deep

and 27" deep 16" high by 15.5" wide

Are there any travel cases that anyone can recommend for a broken down semi-auto shotgun that is small enough to fit in those trunks?-

I would assume you are looking for something like this.

This one would not be good, because of the cost. I am not sure of the size of this one.

I would recommend to break gun down and put parts in one or a couple of those silicon gun sheaths/socks that tie at the end and put into your trunk. I would think just putting gun apart in trunk is considered a case.

Good luck!

This is the gun sock I spoke of in my post! You can find at any sporting good store and Wal-fart!

First of all, Thank You for your service! laugh.gif. Glad to hear your coming home!

To me it sounds like this case that your looking for, you want to be able to fly home with as well. If this is what your looking for, I do not think that the sock will be sufficient for an airplane ride.

I will do some searching if someone doesn't chime in by the time I get home from work.

Hooks,

Thats for pointing tha out!

1) Break down gun.

2) Put parts of gun in 1 or 2 of the socks.

3) Put socks filled with gun parts in travel trunk and lock.

Now I do not know if this is legal, but hopefully hooks will find out.

Good luck!

P.S.

Thanks for serving and come home safe and have fun.

Can you just get a suit case the size you are looking for and put the broke down gun in there with something to pad it?

I guess the links I had are against forumn policy. I found some online for $80 to $150 that are similar to the one above. Do a search for gun cases on cabelas web site. (is this going to get take off too......its not a link)

( Note from admin,please read forum policy before posting again,Thank-you.)

I would assume by him saying "My trunks", he has a couple of travel trunks he would like to find a case to fit in them. Which could be impossible to find, because of the specs on his travel trunks he has given. This is were the sock idea came to my mind.

I could be wrong!

I am confused a little, I was not at first. Reading his post again, it does sound like he would like to ship gun in case down and then drive it back up. I would think he means travel trunks though, because I have no idea of what car has a trunk that small. Well, better off to wait and here back from him/> confused.gif

Jbell,

Nice work! That 2nd one that you found is pretty nice. Hopefully something like that will work for him.

Radke22, What kind of car do you have? Are your parents driving it down from MN?

Radke22 take a look a Boyt takedown shotgun case. It is 30" long and made of heavy duty canvas. It is not cheap but will do the job. I saw it in a Bass Pro catalog at work so I would think that you could find it online or at a gun shop that your parents could order it.Thanks for serving our country so we can have the freedom to hunt and fish.

If you go to Boyts website you will find the take down shotgun case and it comes in 3 sizes-28" 30" 34" and are about $120.

Well, I am having my parents drive my Porsche down from Minnesota to North Carolina. I plan on breaking it into 2 pieces, just need to find that case that is small enough to fit in the car and that I can fly back home during Christmas with.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps
