          One personal preference I'd change is that even though it "looks funny" I orient my rifles stock down to the wheels as he did but scope up towards the handle versus down towards the bottom of the case. That way as the case gets set down or chucked around by baggage handlers the weight of the rifle isn't being absorbed by the scope. May never make a difference in real life, but it just makes more sense to me to have the scope up when carrying the case.

                Nice video, thanks. He left out the ammo though. Cut out a space for a box or two of ammo. I've never had TSA check any serial numbers in years of gun travel (domestic). Every now and then they do ask to take the firearms out and show it's unloaded, which always makes for an awkward situation, pulling your rifle out of the case in a line of people at the airport.

                    The Havalon knives with replaceable scalpel blades work just fine for detail work, just lay the foam on the floor or a hard work table and make plunging vertical cuts. Checking SN#'s isnt always a TSA requirement, but should be a personal accountability check when you get your case back in your hands on the other side. If you leave the airport and then find out shit is missing thats more difficult to prove. Its not that hard to open those cases without picking locks.
