Another important decision to make when traveling long distances with firearms is gun case choice. On my last international hunt, I used a case by Negrini. It was thin, but not frail, with plenty of space that got my equipment to South America and back unharmed. I opted to again use a Negrini case that was perfect for housing my two revolvers, my spare optics, a pair of binoculars and a laser range finder. Made from Negrini’s patented double wall ABS plastic, the case is not only tough but sleek, elegant and TSA approved. It also features two steel combination locks, the two sides separated by a padded divider and featuring die-cut “pluck-n-pull” foam allowing you to customize the case for your individual application.

The author used this double-sided Negrini gun case (model 3039R) to safely transport his guns and optics to South Africa. One side housed spare optics, binos and a range finder, the other contained the two BFR revolvers to be used on safari.

Another feature I really found not only useful but attractive, was the compact size of the case. Unlike some cases, at only 24 inches in length, it’s small enough not to draw attention to its contents. As a handgun hunter, I go to great lengths to safely transport my firearms. I, like you, have a lot riding on my guns arriving to their destination intact. Judging by the condition my cases sometimes arrive, I often wonder if the neglect and outright mistreatment of the case and the resulting external damage is deliberate. Often my other bags arrive unscathed, yet my gun case has scratches, dings and other damage that defies logic. This is where that second function comes into play—knowing that even if the airline employs King Kong to handle the baggage, your guns will arrive unscathed. Just another piece of insurance to ponder.
