    I am about to order more pieces of foam

    Thinking about cutting the foam insert in half and then cutting out the rifle shapes. That way there is a lot of flexibility in terms of rifle combinations.

    Is this a common practice and are two halves inside the case stable for travel?

    I never have tried cutting in half. But I do have 3 different inserts for my Pelican 1750. All depend on which rifles and gear I will be taking.

    My Pelican came with 3 pieces of foam. I've cut one the shape of my rifle and the other two are the top and bottom layer. I read on a previous post, a suggestion to buy an inexpensive memory foam mattress topper off of Amazon and use it for the top and bottom layer and use the foam that came with the Pelican for cutting to fit various rifles.

    My son and I recently purchased a one and a two gun pelican. we took out middle foam and put each rifle in a shotgun soft case and they fit perfect length wise and lay beside each other without overlap. With case closed guns are protected from each other side to side and from each end. Leaves room for removed bolts and 4 boxes ammo. Did the same with one gun in single case. Sent to Moz for 2 weeks then back to SA for a week. All traveled well. The added bonus you have a soft case to use in camp/hunt vehicle.

    Good idea. Take photos.

    I’ve not had any problems with items migrating in the closed case. There is a fair amount of extra room in a pelican double case for knives, bipod, extra scope, etc.
