Gun cases are available with a range of essential as well as advanced features

There is a wide variety of gun cases available in the market. Your particular choice of gun case will depend on the duration of storage and the conditions under which you store and carry your firearms. Broadly, you can choose from the following types of gun cases for your particular need.

Gun Socks

Gun socks, made of a range of soft material such as leather, nylon, and Silicone-treated Polyester knit fabric, are the popular choice of protection for all types and sizes of guns. Whether you are buying a gun sock for a handgun or an oversized scoped rifle, you will find gun socks in all sizes and their fabric base allows for stretching to fit angles, edges and even odd configurations of guns. Gun socks come with drawstring closures that prevent the entry of moisture or chemical that could damage the firearms.

Gun owners buy them to protect both the metal and the wooden stock from scratches, moisture (and therefore rust) and dust. Gun socks are great for storage, whether short term or long term, in your safe particularly when you own many types of guns — the protective material keeps guns from sliding as well as scraping each other. They are a great choice for transportation as well, especially as you can cover and carry the different types of scopes and other attachments in protective socks as well.

Guns socks are widely available in different colours and sizes, and are reasonably inexpensive so you can buy as many pairs you would need for each gun and accompanying attachment that you own.

However, there are times when guns need to be protected from harsher elements like impact, theft during long-distance transportation. For such time, what you would need is a hard-shell gun case.

Hard Cases

Hard-shell cases are made of wood, aluminum or composite material such as fiber-reinforced plastics that have corrosion and chemical resistant properties. Hard cases that come with safety latches and locks are perfect for storing and carrying guns when you want to protect them from impact, dust, humid air, and theft. A lot of high-end hard-exterior cases contain EV foam inserts that are custom-made for guns, attachments, and ammo, and offer the second layer of protection against impact and other damaging elements. The hard-shell gun cases come in two standard sizes — Handgun case, and Long Gun Cases.
