I just bought a Savage 110, .30-06 with a Simmons 9x42 scope. It's used, but in very good shape, as far as I can tell. I've never owned a rifle with a scope before, and I am a little concerned about fragility. Will I run the risk of it being bumped or knocked out of alignment after I get it sighted in if it is not in a hard case?
Only rifle is Grandpa's old .22 Marlin bolt action with open sights, so I am not sure about a rifle with a scope.
Hard case gets my vote as it offers the most protection at about the same cost as most soft cases. You can of course spend a whole lot of shekels to get some fancy top of the line cases but the econo cases work well for me. I can load up the trunk of the car with all of my gear and not worry about scopes getting knocked around etc.
In either case, it is not advisable to use them for long term gun storage at home.
hey wwb,what kind of gun safe do you use? some I heard about are so tight that you have to add silikel gel to absorb moisture.What is the best way to go?I have far to many hiding around here and Montana.Drop-Shot
