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

Recommended Posts

radke22

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.

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.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.
