Default Best gun case?

I'm looking for a gun case for both of my ar-15s and my colt 45 that will not cause my guns to rust like my old case did to my rem 270 I think it was because of the foam. that case was hard case I'm open to all answers thanks

Inspected all the cases at my local BassPro lately. The RedHeads seemed like the best made, and cheaper than the Pelicans. I bought one, inexpensive, very high quality. Namely this one:

Really nice. No way the hinges nor the lock tabs are coming loose when the gorillas load them onto airliners.

Did you store your guns in their case? or just use the cases to transfer them to the range, etc. It is best to remove the gun from the case when storing it for unattended times

+1 for Pelican. Pricey but worth it.

Hi Swann,

The foam would not cause the firearm to rust inside of the case.

If you store it in a waterproof case like a Pelican case for long periods, the moisture gets trapped inside the case because it is airtight.

The best thing is to use a desiccant in the case which will soak up the excess moisture. Get one that you can recharge or change the disposable ones every few months.

A gun safe is for storing, a case is for transporting. A cheap gun safe that is simply bolted to the wall studs is very secure from burglary because one must open the safe to get to the bolt heads. A good lock (tumbler dial, not an electronic lock) is what is needed. The safe might go in a closet out of sight. These are not expensive if you check your local chainstore sporting goods shop regularly for a bargain. The expensive ones are fireproof which I avoided for economy sake.

A cheap large silica gel box can be recharged in the oven every few months, and will prevent rust. We're we're talking about a $5-$10 item that will last decades. The safe will last a lifetime.
