How does that work if TSA wants to pull the rifle out and inspect it to make sure it's unloaded?

Another vote for the double SKB case here. To fit two rifles I've found that it helps if you remove the bolts from a bolt action rifle.

Same as a gun case, just with clothes instead of foam.

From what I saw and read, you put the rifle in a soft case and slip it in the top loading hard case. Tuffpak makes a duffle that unzips horizontally and fits in the case. Load the duffle and drop it in the hard case. Thinking the duffle should fit the top load SKB case too. Don't know if SKB makes one?

You trust TSA to pack it back the same way you had it arranged?

I have two travel cases from Impact Case, a single and a double version. Both of these cases have carried my firearms all over the world, with no damage whatsoever to my guns. The double case has wheels, and both cases use either a single or two rods to go thru the holes in the latches to securely lock the case. Good, high quality cases, if you prefer aluminum over polymer.

I cancelled my order for the SKB Tuffpack clone and bought the SKB double rifle case that stacks the rifles. Very pleased with it!

I put two rifles in it that both have McM Gamescout stocks, 26" barrels and big scopes. They fit great. I pointed the muzzles in different directions when bunking them. No problem closing the lid.

It has integrated locks in addition to slots for padlocks.

Very heavy duty case with great wheels and a self folding handle.

I highly recommend it.

I have used Pelicans quite a bit, traveling for vacation as well as for work. Never an issue.
