Picked up their catalog at the local farm show today.

If you are traveling with firearms they look pretty handy.

We have a few of them at work and they are pretty well made.  They're heavier than hell and the one thing I don't like about them is condensation can form on your guns in them when the temperature fluctuates quite a bit.
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

Chris, Could it be from the hot exhaust or from the rear end that causes the condensation to be more drastic than normal?
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

In a dry climate they don't have that problem but when the humidity is up, they do sweat a lot. They are nice but not perfect for every environment. I have the built in bed boxes on my Ram truck and they are fine out here in the desert but when I get anywhere near the coast they sweat bad. I suspect that's why they have the drains in bottom.

It's caused by the extreme heating and cooling inside the vehicles with the windows up.  We've had a few guns rust up from being in there over an extended period of time.  In the summer it can get well over 100 degrees inside a vehicle with the windows up then when it cools off at night the temperature drops significantly.
