i'm looking for a 2 rifle or a single M4 plus a sidearm type hard case.

there are the pelican and the hardigg cases.

i've used pelicans before. never fondled a hardigg though. are they the same?

good place to get them cheap?

would these cases handle being "buried" underground?????


thanks.

Pelican most definately can handle being buried 8 ft underground, but you must also keep a whole lot of dessicant in the case. I like the newer generations of pelicans over the hardiggs.

Pelican HAS (prompted by competition from Hardigg) solved their one weak spot -- the fingernail removing latches -- so now Pelican (local CA company) gets my nod.
But, on burying, remember...

The new Pelican latches are much better, but I still prefer Hardigg.

I've got a dozen pelican cases, and some have had issues (all on me) and their service department really does stand behind their policy of replacing parts 'no questions asked'. I recently got a 1750 from a dealer here in Fresno for $170. If you want his info, let me know. The 1750 will easily hold 2 rifles.

Since the case is rated to 1m underwater, underground should be find as long as the water table is deeper.

IP stands for 'Ingress Protection'

An IP number is used to specify the environmental protection of enclosures around electronic equipment. These ratings are determined by specific tests.

The IP number is composed of two numbers, the first referring to the protection against solid objects and the second against liquids. The higher the number, the better the protection.

Note: All pelican cases are manufactured and tested to IP67 standards.

First Number
0 - No protection (Sometimes X)
1 - Protected against solid objects up to 50mm≥
2 - Protected against solid objects up to 12mm≥
3 - Protected against solid objects up to 2.5mm≥
4 - Protected against solid objects up to 1mm≥
5 - Protected against dust, limited ingress (no harmful deposit)
6 - Totally protected against dust



Second Number
Second Number
0 - No protection (Sometimes X)
1 - Protection against vertically falling drops of water (e.g. condensation)
2 - Protection against direct sprays of water up to 15 degrees from vertical
3 - Protection against direct sprays of water up to 60 degrees from vertical
4 - Protection against water sprayed from all directions - limited ingress permitted
5 - Protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions - limited ingress permitted
6 - Protected against low pressure jets of water, limited ingress permitted (e.g. ship deck)
7 - Protected against the effect of immersion between 15cm and 1m
8 - Protected against long periods of immersion under pressure

i would love to get a couple three more cases..but the price:chris:.
i know you get's what you pay's for.

but when you are priced out of the market.
it would be nice if pelican would have a slash and burn sale some time.:eek:
