Hello,
For those having used both, how would you say the blaser case compares to a pelican case?
Would you trust the blaser case to put your riffle in a plane?
Thanks!

I’ve got both and would not fly with the Blaser one unless flying private with private luggage handlers.

This is a sample of aviation spec luggage treatment. The Blaser branded Negrini case was not designed for this.

Agreed with the others. If it's a Negrini case (sounds like that's what the Blaser cases are), it's a wonderful case for storage and local travel, but I wouldn't trust it for flying.

My custom Sako came in a Negrini. It's a great case with nice finishes, but I'd put the rifle in something more rugged before I subjected it to the airline/airport savages.

I wouldn't use one because Life is too short for an ugly gun.
Excellent! I look forward to not hearing your comments on this thread.

"having a fantastic face for radio", seems to be a common trend on AH... myself included! Luckily we all have beautiful wives and girlfriends :D

Speak for yourselves. I am both handsome and photogenic - particularly when carrying a R8. :cool:

I'm sorry for having to point this out, but you would be much more photogenic, if you would accessorize correctly...

Something like this perhaps:

I think disagreeing with you while you've got the R8 in hand seems like a dangerous game...but if it's not assembled...face only a mother could love! :A Outta: :P Elmer Fudd:

You're going to get him started...highland stalker this...7x65r Bradshaw that...Kgun double this...
You do have a nice rifle there though. Interesting scope mount.

I think I probably have all that in common with @BeeMaa. We do however, have nice wood.

But I think Mrs. @BeeMaa has control of all the wood in the household. And she dictates when it gets used.
ABSOLUTELY! I married her for her excellent taste...in wood. ;)

@VertigoBE - Thank you for sharing a picture of your beautifully stocked rifle.

@Reg Leg
Who are you trying to convince mate because we have heard stories telling the opposite.
Take me for example, I'm the 5Ts

And Terribly fucking modest.

@BigSteve57
Mate that's getting a bit personal saying you and @BeeMaa have nice wood.
Unfortunately you can't be as good looking as me, but you can join the classy cartridge group and get a nice 35 Whelen.
