There’s a relatively new channel on YouTube of a USMCR pistol shooter.  Here is his travel setup for his guns and gear.

If you get lid stays and a mount, you can skip the tripod for the spotting scope.

Benefit of the tripod, you can close the box if it starts raining.

Or, you can do as I am now trying, attach a mounting bracket on the outside of the Pelican, without affecting the integrity of the box, and fabricate a support that replaces the tripod. Allowing the lid to be closed whilst shooting, if preferred.

With one of those tiny NG scopes the mount can be very skinny. My 80mm scope requires something a bit more substantial!

I intend to use this modified "Pelican" for fly/drive trips, but I still prefer my "conventional", albeit custom, wood bullseye box for West Coast matches. One significant advantage is that it deflects brass from those inconsiderate shooters who choose not to use a brass catcher.

Last time I experienced that, at Canton, the 22 brass from the shooter on my left was actually flying over my head and hitting the shooter to my right! The guy to my right checked and saw that all of my brass was in my catcher!!

I made this simple part (just screwed it on to take a photo) that allows me to leave my scope set-up while moving from 50 to 25 at Perry.

It looks great for air travel. He touches on the biggest drawback to using this at the range. When this thing gets wet it is a giant PITA.
