I thought that the case looked well designed and constructed until I tried to check it on a flight from San Antonio to Dallas. The TSA inspector proceeded to pry open the ends of the locked case with his bare hands.
The TSA inspector said it was too easy for a baggage handler to steal the shotgun, thus he refused to allow the bag on the flight. Fortunately a hunting buddy had extra room in his 25-year old cheapo generic gun case otherwise I would have missed my flight. The TSA inspector said that the TSA now requires that the latches on each end of the case must lock, even if with just a universal luggage key type of built-in lock. I am looking for a new case after the TSA inspector cracked my case with his bare hands. I had an earlier version of the same case that worked fine for 20+ years, but the world has changed... Beware!
