    Take measurements of your firearm and order the best sized case for that particular gun. Pelican cases are awesome.

    As a pelican distributer & custom case insert fabricator, I love these questions.

    Here's a few things to take into account.

    What all are you putting in the case?

    Just the pistol & a mag(or2)?

    Will you store the mags separate from the gun in the case?(ie-each in its own slot)?

    Are you looking to put a box if ammo in the case?

    Are you putting a silica pack in the case?

    Pelican cases have a rubber sealing valve so you can get it open if you change altitude or the case heats up. Cheap watertight cases that dont have that feature can be very hard to open. I have about 4 small Pelican boxes for use on our kayaks. You should love this post Tex.

    Yup, Automatic Pressure Release valves. Standard on almost all pelican & pelican storm cases and another great feature

    A general rule of thumb when fitting a case with foam is that you want minimum 1" of foam around the edges for added protection.

    I'd recommend any of the following cases for your needs.

    Pelican 1400
    Pelican 1450
    Pelican Storm iM2100
    Pelican Storm iM2200

    All are available with pick n pluck foam with convoluted foam(egg crate) in the lids. All are also available in black, as well as the other standard colors offered by pelican. Also included is Pelicans lifetime warranty, which is tops in the industry. I've been dealing with these cases for over 6 years and have only replaced minimum parts(ie-gaskets, broken handle, wheel) and can only think of 3-4 cases that have actually had to be replaced via warranty due to damage! 98% of the cases we sell are used in the oil industry and are treated like pure trash!

    Looks like the 1400 will do the trick. Thanks.

    How about locks for the pelican cases? What's good?

    Pelican offers a TSA approved cable lock which is pictured below. Also, the locking hasp opening on all pelican cases is just a hair over 1/4", so any lock with a diameter of .25" or less will work fine

    Have you purchased a case yet?

    This is a pelican 1400 that we recently did for a customer.

    If you're putting your 'Storm in a Pelican Case, what are you putting your pelican in?
