Although I only have one AR and one pistol, it would have been nice to just leave my AR and my 870 in the bottom, and just my 1911 and all the mags in the lid, sort of like this picture above. I don't know if maybe I could have fit the 1911 and my M14 in the lid, and my AR and my shotty below, but that means I would have to change the foam configuration to have one thin sheet at the bottom of the case, then a thick later to house the AR and the shotty, then a thin layer to separate the bottom of the case with the top. Then have a thick thick layer of foam to house my pistol, all the mags and maybe even my M14, then another thin sheet to be put up against the inner surface of the lid. Well, the foam is pretty price from Pelican so next time I go to Home Depot, I'll see if they have anything even remotely close.
Anyway, I ended up with this setup. Just crammed my 1750 with as much stuff as possible. I guess I could get another hard case for my M14, haha! Well, I might also go down to Cabela's and grab one of their soft cases for $65:
Pretty amazing for $65. I grabbed one for my buddy Jay, now I want one, haha! It's pretty nice, should fit my AR, my shotty and my pistol in the one of the side pouches. Less bulky too. Anyway, I can alternate the hardcase (my Pelican 1750) between those three and my M14.
