There are times when you have to match the gun case to the value of a firearm, or if you are traveling long distances or possible shipping a firearm. Many of these cases are customized to the firearm which gives insurance that it’s not going to be sliding around. I’ve witnessed many times in my life, UPS drivers, Fedex Drives and Mail Men throwing packages around. Even our customers will complain to us if a package is not packed right. Long term storage in environments where you can’t predict what the humidity or temperature are going to be is another reason to buy Pelican Cases.
Pelican designs there products in multiple dimensions and depths and you have to know exactly what you are putting in them and make sure you have enough room to cut or alter the foam inserts that they come with. There are some variables with pre-cut foam inserts for Pelican Cases but there is often a lot of wasted space when you do that. Also, most people have different grips, stocks, bi-pods ect so dropping $100-$200 on a pre-cut insert and still having to alter it may or may not be a waste of time. It’s always good to know somebody that has a hot wire or knows how to set one up to get the job done right. There are plenty of tutorials on Youtube that you can watch before you take on that adventure.
