This heartrending photo comes from outdoor writer/world traveler Bob Robb. The case had lasted him 15 years and over 100,000 miles, but it is no more. Bob speculates that someone tried to break into it, but gave up. He is now engaged in what he calls “…the hell of trying to get paid for it, since this case is not made any more.”
The moral is, don’t by a cheap case. This one was wrecked, but Bob still has his rifle. Oh, and if you can avoid it, don’t fly Delta, at least not with a gun.
