Locking the OEM case

I've ordered the SASS edition of the Ruger New Vaquero in 45 Colt 5.5" barrel.
The won't arrive for at least 2 months but I want to get ready to take delivery.

I want to know if the big red plastic OEM case the 2 revolvers are shipped in has a hole for a pad lock so I can lock the case shut, or if a small cable lock be wrapped around the case handles there by locking the case closed.

Also I want to know if the OEM case will allow MasterLock trigger locks model 94DSPT to be installed and still be able to fit the revolvers back into the OEM case.

I know that the revolvers come with 2 keyed pad locks. I don't see how these Ruger pad locks could be installed on the revolvers and still be able to but them back into the case and lock it shut.

single revolver cases do have a lock hole.

I have to ask... Why all the concern about locks? Just curious. My locks all get deep-sixed or used elsewhere.

I live in Canada and our Government has their head up their *** where it pertains to any firearm particularly handguns. So to be legal, is best to go above and beyond in the lock up procedure, think Russian nesting dolls style lock up lock on top of locks on top of locks.
Any gun owner can be accused read charged with unsafe storage then the owner is on the hook to prove is innocence in court to the tune of thousand of dollars in lawyer fees.

Sorry to hear that . Makes a gun pretty useless for self defense purposes. I won't complain as much about the laws we have down here ... I feel for ya!

same laws in the states

most states require locked case when transporting a gun in your car. having padlock holes makes that much easier.

Your state may require that, but I've never lived in one that did.

Nor mine.... Gun is to be used, whether from a vehicle, or on the street, in the home, or in the woods. Locks make no sense except on the safe IMHO. When going to the range for example, my revolvers our stuffed in holsters and laid in my range bag with the ammo (or on my hip, if I feel like it).

Hornady makes a key lockable steel gun case that uses a cable to lock it to something. I got one for $26. It's also approved by ATS for check-on baggage. Plastic OEM gun cases are easy to pry open even with a padlock on it.
