A Very Cool Firearms Travel Case

Original article posted May 29, 2020 in Backwoods Home Magazine.
My old friend John Farnam travels constantly with firearms, as I do and some of you do. He turned me on to a new case developed just for that purpose by Miles “Rocky" Scofield.

If you’ve flown commercial aircraft with firearms lately, you know that the airlines are now demanding a case which locks so securely they can’t get a fingertip in through any opening. Rocky found, as John and I did, that most cases that’ll withstand that test are heavy and bulky. Those of us who have to travel with guns – and ammo – know the importance of saving weight, given the 50-pound suitcase weight limit and 11-pound ammo limit.
TravelAmorCase, LLC is the brand for Rocky’s case. Designed with strong but ultra-light space-age plastic, combination cable locks are also available. My significant other, the Evil Princess, has already adopted our test sample for her suitcase. (I can fit my Glock 17 and Glock 43 in the larger one. E.P.) They come in various sizes, including a magazine case that turns out to be the right dimensions for a micro-size .380 pistol all by itself. I’ll be running the larger two-gun case as I board my next plane flight to Return to American Normalcy. Information can be found at www.travelarmorcase.com. Rocky is giving all you readers a discount, too: at check out – use the discount code TAC613
