Pros and Cons of Hard and Soft Rifle Cases

What consideration must a person make when they are looking to purchase a rifle carrying case. There are many considerations to make when shopping. The most important thing to decide on is whether you want soft or hard carrying cases. Both types of cases have their pros and cons, and so it is up to the person to make the best decision for themselves.

Custom blow molded rifle cases are significant because they offer owners unparalleled protection (especially when compared to a soft case). Foam pieces reduce shock and vibration when dropped. Not only can a hard case protect products from bumps and falls, but it can also keep guns safe when cases are exposed to the elements (water, dirt, cold, etc.). The owner must also consider where they will be traveling with their rifle. TSA requires hard cases for flying with weapons.

Although these cases protect your gear, they are bulkier, heavier, and more expensive than soft-sided cases. A soft-sided case is best when traveling short distances. The cases are lightweight and easy to carry, so they are convenient to bring on hunting trips. Water resistant soft cases are available for purchase, and usually, those cases are designed to float.

A soft case cannot protect like a hard case. Soft cases do not have external locking systems. Finally, soft cases do not have foam inserts so that a gun will move around inside the case.
