    I have three or four longguns that will be transported everynow and then. I was thinking of using a triple or quad gun case. Weight is important. I have a single rifle case made of thick aluminum and I never use it because it is a 6 lb. rifle inside of a 20 lb. case. It is too heavy for normal use.

    Can anyone share their opinions or experiences with these type of cases?

    I found a good deal on an SKB hard case for golf clubs, and use that with long guns inside in soft cases with further padding (clothes etc) when travelling. It locks, and it doesn't scream "GUNS!" when you roll it around. See some examples at

    This isn't where I got mine, just a source of pictures and info.

    With some rifles weighing in excess of 10 pounds, I wouldn't want to carry 4 of them at once, even without a case to add extra weight.

    Don't golf cases generally have wheels?

    I looked at one at K-Mart the other day. It's about as sturdy as a $12 Doscocil gun case and has nice latches, but it just didn't feel like $43 worth of plastic to me.

    I'm thinking maybe getting a higher quality golf case and making a nice insert for it to hold the rifles would work pretty well. Yes, it would weigh a ton, but you could roll it. Having several guns in one case would save you fighting with several cases or leaving some in the car while carrying the rest into the house/to the range and risking someone grabbing one or two while you are inside.
