Hey all, I need help on a new case purchase. When I fly with firearms it has always been long guns and sometimes I'll throw a pistol or two in my Pelican Storm 3220. Soon I'll be flying just with handguns and would like a recommendation on a Pelican case that nicely fits 2 - 4 handguns with a little room for mags and the like. I would rather have it deeper than wider but am open to anything. Pictures of yours would be great as well. Thanks in advance. -Ben

1470 is a nice one. However, it's like an attache style so it's wider than deeper.

I like Seahorse also. Check this one (http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=691596) and here's a link (http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/search/search.aspx?r=MainHeader+KW+Box&s=&a=browse&k=seahorse) to all of them. I had also considered a Pelican 1450, which is not as wide or tall but is deeper than the 1470 so probably more like what you want.

Storm iM2200 with Custom Foam (http://pelican.com/cases_detail_mobile_military.php?Case=472-PWC-M9-2). I just flew round trip with the case. It has cutouts for 4 handguns and 4 magazines.

The Pelican 1470 would fit 2 pistols, if they're not both Desert Eagles ;-). You might also look at the 1490 and 1495. The 1470/1490/1495 are laptop cases, but are also very nice for pistols. Very heavy duty and extremely well built. BTW, I had the 1450 prior to buying the 1470. The 1450 is not desirable as a pistol case, imo, because it is too deep. More suitable for photo/video/instument gear.

Thanks again for more input, I looked around more last night and decided that the 1470 might be a better option for me. I'm glad I didn't purchase immediately. -Ben

I have an SKB handgun case that I'm VERY pleased with. It's lockable, has 3 layers of removable foam, so that you can fit multiple handguns, magazines, tools, etc.

I can some photos of mine when I get a chance, but if you want a deep case that gives you some options, check them out.

If you like that style case, check Seahorse 'cuz they're extremely high quality like Pelican but less than half the price: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=691602
