DuraLock Pistol Hard Cases

Sure, these cases are a great way to keep your firearms safe and secure, but they would also make an ideal hibernation location for a 17-year cicada. Just tuck that little guy in your closet for a couple decades -- but don't forget to let him out in 2030!

You got your "single."
You got your "double."
My big guess is that single holds one pistol & double holds two (being Woot, however, we can't "assume", only guess.)
Then you got your "deluxe" and your "extra large" which rolls.
Numbers! I need numbers!
So is the deluxe a "threeble" which holds three pistols? Extra large - a "fourble" or even "moreble"? How many pistols can be housed in the last two cases? (Minus the insect activity.)

Seriously... Enough of the cutest descriptions. We need real info.

FYI: The only difference I see between the two is that the Deluxe is two inches thicker... Not sure why you'd need that for pistols though.

You have the inside dimensions of the case. How big are your pistols (and ammo, cleaning gear, etc)?

You could put several of James Bond's PPKs in a box that would only hold one Dirty Harry Automag.

These look great if you are keeping a firearm on the boat or going shark or alligator fishing but I still think I perfer a range bag to travel with, and a safe to store at home. These don't appear to be FAA compliant so they are not good to travel with either.
Still the idea is kinda cool.

Edited for my poor spelling and typing.

You know, just because it says that it is a "pistol case" does not mean that is the only thing you can put in there. These cases (and the ones that were on sport.woot a couple days ago - THANKS!) are great for storing anything fragile or sensitive. Camera equipment, computer equipment, tools - you name it. They can be locked to keep honest people honest, and can be locked to something else to slow down dishonest people.

Perhaps we should get a few to store the Constitution in. It would appear that some people would like to break it up and remove parts of it.

There you go! Multi-purpose these bad boys! Woot should have chimed in with a similar response itself. ;)

I agree! FAA approved would close this deal for me! California approved would be a plus for travel, though I don't live with that extreme parinoia.

I could not find anything either, DuraLock looks to be a model or brand for SportLock http://www.sportlockllc.com/ but there is no information on the SportLock website either.

Does anyone know if the Nerf guns from the other sale will fit in these cases?

These are just rebranded Seahorse cases with absolutely nothing added as far as I can tell aside from dollars to the price. SE 310, SE 710, SE 720, and SE 920 are the model numbers off the top of my head.

Someone said these are not FAA approved? I have taken a shotgun on a plane Believe it or not in a soft carry bag. Nothing fancy just a Remington 870. I guess handguns are different.

This was pre 09/11 just showed it to poor check in clerk,when I said "OK I will show you its broken down" she said "I believe you". Then checked it under to plane with my dogs and heavy luggage. Our car had died on Orcas Island WA.

I'm guessing things are a little more strict now. I sent an email to Boyt Harness regarding the sport.woot cases of last week, which claimed to be:

designed and engineered to meet or exceed law enforcement, military and airline standards.

and checked the FAA / TSA website. The note I got back from Boyt said:

The case is drilled for a lock. You need to purchase a TSA approved lock for traveling and you are good to go!


The TSA website says:

The firearm must be unloaded.

The firearm must be in a hard-sided container that is locked. A locked container is defined as one that completely secures the firearm from being accessed. Locked cases that can be pulled open with little effort cannot be brought aboard the aircraft.


It looks to me like these will qualify for traveling with a firearm, but I have not touched one, have not tried it and am not a trained professional.

Holy cow, you hit the nail on the head! Went to look up Seahorse cases and... wow.. exactly the same thing! So is this the actual Seahorse company selling a rebranded version, hoping to market it as a higher end brand, or some Chinese knock-off? (The second would burn even more, considering Seahorse is touted as being US made, why is a 'cheap' knock-off more expensive?!?)

Just a note about "TSA locks"


DO NOT USE A TSA LOCK ON YOUR PISTOL/FIREARM CASES.


That means that anyone with a TSA master key (baggage handlers, security, etc...) can unlock it.


The rules actually state NOT to use a TSA lock if I'm not mistaken.

Actually, for the purposes of flying with a gun, I've always heard it suggested to NOT use a TSA lock.
Saw some guy talk about using a gun(which includes starter pistols BTW) as an excuse to use legitimate locks on his expensive electronic equipment rather than the cheap TSA ones, after having thousands of dollars worth of gear stolen in the past.

And while anyone can get past any lock given time/tools, it's a lot more obvious if a baggage handler or TSA person are going at your bag with bolt cutters in the corner vs using a master key on a TSA lock

I saw (perhaps) that same video. As far as what lock to use, I agree that you should not use the crippled locks that allow TSA to open them if you have a firearm in the case. I think that when securing a firearm, a "TSA approved lock" means a quality padlock.

I may have been one of them. If I was, I apologize to you, the Woot! community and any individual(s)...Attacks on the Constitution tend to get me a bit riled.

found the Seahorse SE-720F for just $69.12 of Amazon. Same case - better price... & free shipping. We'll see how it stands up in comparison to my Pellican cases.

Thought I would chime in-these are identical to seahorse cases. I own about 8 of the different sizes and they are great quality for the price. They are slightly lower quality than pelican but much cheaper. They are TSA approved. I have used them several times for pistols going cross country. Highly recommended!

Thought I should add....the smallest one is really small. Barely fits a full size auto pistol. The next size is bigger than expected. I can fit 3 med pistols if I am creative or my mac10 /tec 9

This caught my eye, but having never heard of "DuraLock" nor having any "DuraLock case" come up with search results other than woot.com.... I'm skeptical that these are any "deal" - the closest thing I could find was SportLock http://www.sportlockllc.com/ -- where you can get cases for HALF the price.

Hmmm... I looked at the Seahorse models and the case seems to be the same, but the latches look different. These have some kind of twist knob to lock the latch down, the Seahorse looks like it's just a snap.

I see the SE-720F on Amazon for $69.12...if you want that ugly highlighter yellow color The plain black, though, is $85.26.

Just got mine and, wow, larger than expected. I bought the double but there's quite a bit of room to spare as I have compact pistols. Now I just have to find a lock that can stand up to as much punishment as the case looks like it could...

Although my google-fu is strong, it wasn't needed in this instance. I've used Seahorse cases on my motorcycles - the 520 and 720 models as panniers and a 300 as a tank bag. I ride and see them every day so i recognized them immediately and knew the price was just awful. For the record they are great cases. I prefer them to pelicans because you can get them with integrated locks.
