Plano Announces New All Weather Hard Cases for Long Guns

Plano Molding has announced upgrades to their All Weather line of hard cases for long guns, saying they’re better than ever… and the MSRPs are attractive in comparison to some other brands. They come in three different sizes, and all have “pluck to fit” foam — a much better solution than cutting foam with an electric carving knife, which is how I had to fit my rifles into a more expensive case.

Here’s what their press release has to say:

Plano, IL (September 25, 2018) – Traveling hunters and shooters demand hard-sided cases they can trust to protect their valuable firearms. Plano’s venerable All Weather™ series gun cases have earned the confidence of firearms owners who appreciate premium Plano-grade protection at a practical price. New for 2018, Plano has enhanced their best-selling All Weather™ line of long-gun cases with an upgraded look and improved functionality.

Available in 36-inch, 42-inch and 52-inch sizes, All Weather™ cases feature rugged, industrial-strength construction and an improved, continuous Dri-Loc® seal to create a watertight and dust-proof shield that protects firearms or other valuable gear in even the most extreme conditions. Additional features like heavy-duty dual-stage lockable latches, built-in pressure-release valves and molded padlock gates combine to make All Weather™ cases ideal for airline travel. Durable molded handles facilitate easy transport, while the 52-inch model even has easy-glide wheels.

Inside, All Weather™ cases feature customizable pluck foam to create a clean and ultra-secure fit that cradles firearms and accessories while isolating them from every bump, jar, jostle and drop.
