Gun Case Dimensions
Has anyone run into a case where they were charged for an oversized baggage item, i.e., gun case. My cases measure more than the limits that most airlines allow which is 62 inches calculated by adding the total outside dimensions of each bag, that is, length + width + height.
I know I have flown before with the case I am taking to Africa and it measures 67 inches but have had no problems with it but that was before the airlines decided to try to get rich by charging for everything.

I'm with Phil here, the two different cases I've used have both exceeded the measurement limit, however since they met weight I was not charged either time.

Gun Cases are considered Sport and Special Baggage, where the rule of 62 inches does not apply.
