What is the best type of gun case seem to be the question that has been asked for years and the answers still always depends. Some people, especially newbie always ask about what type of gun case materials that they should use plastic, metal, or a classic presentation case. As mentioned earlier that type of gun case really depends on what and where you are going to shoot. If you are the person who travel frequently, so you need kind of case that could provide extreme protection to your gun. A metal case is only the answer that you must use, particularly if you frequent travel by plane.
If you have to use metal case, I really mean the good one, not something that you can buy anywhere at very cheap price. This is because a good metal case could make you rest assured that your favorite gun is fully protected. The reason that I encourage to use metal case is metal case has very tough and strong exterior. You will never know that when your luggage is being transferred by airline staff, how much force and pressure that put on the case and on to your prized shotgun, rifle or handgun. It would be very disastrous if you have only soft case to protect them. So consider to use metal case is very vital good decision to make.
However, it is quite strange to see that there are plenty of tests and reviews of gun cases by comparing various types of gun case materials. Many of gun magazines reveal that they have tested much kind of materials and found that metal case is not the best kind. Instead, the better is presentation case (leather and canvas covering a wooden box) is actually the good one to have.
However, I still remain insist that using metal is the best, especially when you travel by airplane as we could not expect that what is going to happened with the gun, so using the hardest material case is probably the best way of protection. In case if you have very limited budget and unable to buy an expensive good metal case, you can use plastic case, but I strongly recommend that using plastic case is suitable for only when you leave your gun at home or travel in very short distance. But if you have a plan for long trip just go for metal case.
However, if you already have plastic case and you want to carry it with you for a long trip, instead of buy a new metal case, you may use the existing plastic one but add additional material that is thick, high density foam to absorb the hits your case will take in baggage handling. The only way to keep up with the latest about gun case is you have to constantly in touch with new information. If you read everything you find about this topic, it won't take long for you to become an expert.
Therefore, just think about what you've read and learnt form the above article and consider it is whether what you exactly wanted. If you've picked some important points that I have mentioned and then you can put into action, and then by all means, do so. You won't really be able to gain any benefits from your new knowledge if you don't use it.
