5 Reasons Why Every Rifle Shooter Needs a Hard Case

5 Reasons Why Every Rifle Shooter Needs a Hard Case

Firearm transportation is an often overlooked aspect of gun ownership. Many times, guns are brought to the range and even out into the field in their factory original boxes, or in soft cases that offer little protection against damage.

Owning a hard rifle case is highly recommended for protecting your prized long guns. Luckily, Pelican makes it easy to choose an ultra-durable rifle case. Pelican Storm cases are constructed from a proprietary polymer that's extremely resistant to impact trauma. Virtually unbreakable, the hard resin is dent-resistant and shatter-resistant. These cases are also airtight and watertight, making them reliable for nearly any environment.

In case you don't already own one, here are five reasons why every rifle shooter needs a Pelican Storm case:

Travel

If you're ever going to fly with your long gun — Pelican Storm cases are the perfect option. Most airlines and TSA require a case that fastens shut and has the ability to lock. With your rifle properly secured in a Pelican case, you can fly with the confidence that it's going to arrive securely and undamaged. Additionally, the IM3000-series of long gun cases also include wheels for easily rolling the case in and out of the airport.

Customizable

Your prized rifle will feel right at home with the customizable foam interior of Pelican Storm cases. To custom-fit your rifle, lay it on the foam and trace it out with a marker. Then simply pluck out the cubes of foam where you want the rifle to sit, and you'll have a perfectly fitted shape to hold the rifle snugly in place.

Security

Equipped with its hard polymer construction, six sturdy latches, four padlockable hasps and powerful hinges, it would be extremely hard to imagine how anyone could access your firearm without some type of heavy duty breeching tools.

Maintain Zero

Since the custom padded case will prevent any unnecessary direct impact trauma to the rifle, there's a very minimal risk of experiencing a loss of zero during turbulent transportation.

Protect Your Investment

If you're going to spend a great deal of money on a rifle, you might as well protect it. In addition to being extremely durable, Pelican Storm cases are airtight and water tight. Once your rifle is properly secured in the case, you can rest easy knowing that it's protected from unwanted dings, dents or water damage. This particular case is the Pelican Storm iM3300.
