Camo Gun Cases | Protecting Your Firearm with Style
If you travel very much during the hunting season, you probably have two problems. First, your legs and rear side get pretty weary of the long miles. But second, you need to make sure your firearm stays safe and contained while in transit. Our rifles, shotguns, or even handguns are often quite the investment on our part, so why take the risk of not properly protecting them? Besides that, it’s the law just about anywhere that a firearm needs to be in a case when in a moving vehicle.
Just like your favorite firearm, the protection of that gun can be overhauled into a camo gun case with your favorite Moonshine Camo pattern. There are a couple different types of gun cases available on the market. They include hard case, soft case, and cloth or other material options. In order to choose the best one for yourself, you need to look at your specific hunting conditions. Let’s look at a few examples.
Hard gun cases offer more protection in extremely rugged conditions or when you need to fly to your destination (i.e., have you seen the way some airline employees handle your luggage?!). They have a very sturdy shell that you can often lock, and the interior is padded with protective foam to nestle your gun safely. This is important if you want your scope to stay dialed in after traveling a long distance or over rough country. Quality hard cases are often expensive, but it’s better than a cheaply made hard case that won’t offer the security you’re seeking.
Soft gun cases are a great bargain buy since they offer more protection than cloth, but are cheaper than the hard case versions. They typically are made of a protective material, often with some kind of padding on the interior. They generally have a zipper opening and can easily be tucked away in the cab of your truck. Soft cases are perfect for toting your weapon between your favorite hunting locations, whether they are down the road or within a few hundred miles. Your favorite Moon Shine Camo patterns can be applied to these gun cases as well.
Cloth versions are obviously the cheapest and least protective option, but they do have some merits. For instance, it is impractical to carry along a hard case or even soft case on many actual hunts in the field. But if you’re likely to experience a little rain, snow, mud, or dust, keeping your firearm protected will help prolong its useful life and ensure it functions in the backcountry. You can easily carry along a cloth case and then roll it up and pack it when you need your gun. It’s a good idea to have one along.
While these examples mostly apply to hunting situations, you also need a good case to carry your handgun to the shooting range. Or perhaps you do hunt with it as well. Luckily, these cases also come in a variety of Moonshine Camo patterns, so you can rock your favorite one and represent your bold lifestyle. Camo patterns aren’t just for clothing, after all.
Of course, you can do more harm than good with gun cases without some simple precautions. Never put your weapon away wet or dirty if you can help it. The restricted air flow and moisture can cause rust to develop over time. If you’re in the field without any other option, you’ll have to do it temporarily. But as soon as you can, take your weapon out to thoroughly clean it and dry the interior of your gun case while you’re at it. Taking these steps should keep your firearm functioning properly for years, if not decades, without much of an issue.
