    I am looking for a case that is airline approved, fits 2 scoped rifle, around $150. What say you? I am also switching over to a duffle bag from suitcases; any suggestions?

    Airlines are hard on luggage...and they don't discriminate even if your package is marked "Delicate Instruments" or similar. SKB builds a few hard cases that fit your needs and your budget. Some even come with built in TSA approved locks (IIRC these cannot be standard TSA-style luggage locks...as they are not to be opened without you present).

    For a more costly rifle, I would go with a Pelican/Hardigg Storm, SKB Mil-Standard case (not to be confused with their "homeowner grade" cases mentioned above), or even a used Zero-Haliburton (don't believe they make rifle-sized cases anymore) despite the added cost.

    :)
