$73.98 out the door. Not able to use the "Free Shipping items" trick to drop down the shipping cost.

edit On Amazon for $69.20 if you have Prime.

At first, I didn't think I would get more than two rifles, so I opted for the Plano foam-padded case. I bought two so I could lock up both rifles (from the kiddos, not thieves), and not take up a ton of room in my house. They're very good cases, and I would recommend them for traveling (either road trips or flying). If you get one of these, don't trust the built in locks, and buy some decent (long bolt) padlocks. Negative: They're not great for taking to the range. They're bulky, and awkward if you need to set them out of the way while you're shooting.

Of course, I bought a third rifle on an impulse, and it came with something like this for free. I actually ended up using this more than the hard cases for range trips since it's much more compact/maneuverable, and just carries the essentials (a few magazines and a good-sized pouch for tactical Skittles). For a one-rifle person, this is probably the best value, and more practical for most people's needs.

That said, few of us actually stay one-rifle gun owners for long. I just punted and bought a $100 metal gun cabinet from Walmart to control access. The nice Plano cases are now just used for traveling rather than storage.

My favorite, though, is a double carbine bag. Even if you only have one rifle (now), it's a great bag with plenty of extra storage. It will fit two sets of eye and ear protection and a lot of pre-loaded magazines along with two rifles. I didn't think I'd ever use the backpack straps until a few weeks ago when we decided to find a place to shoot in the National Forest that required a little hiking off the road. The bag really saved the day, and made the whole experience a lot more comfortable while packing about 40 pounds of rifles + ammo.

Just my $0.02.

I think this would be a better comparison with the Plano All Weather Tactical Gun Case, 42-Inch

  • tax for those unlucky states like mine

    I'm $64 all in at midway but I can local pick up

Eh for that price I’ll get a Plano case off amazon for $75 Plano All Weather Tactical Gun Case, 42-Inch (Previous Generation)

u/zxj4k3xz · 4 pointsr/airsoft

Waht type of budget are you looking at?

There isn't much that goes into cleaning airsoft guns. A cleaning rod, some microfiber cloths, and a bit of rubbing alcohol is all it really takes for an AEG. For GBBs (I assume his G19 will be GBB) he might need a valve key to disassmeble the mags.

Maybe a gun rack or gun case

Patches are always a good gift

Comfy socks, like Darn Tough, are awesome.

If he uses midcap mags (No winding wheel on the bottom) he might like an Odin Sidewinder. It's an amazing speedloader. They've announced an updated version but I don't know when it's coming out. If he already has a Sidewinder there's a sound dampening thingy for it.

Edit: On a $250 budget you can get him some nice stuff:

Vortex Crossfire II 1-4x24 scope is an incredible scope. I know I'd be ecstatic to get one if I didn't already have one.

Salomon boots are awesome boots. Peoples feet can vary a lot so boots might not be a great gift but Amazon does have a good return policy

A Dye i5
or i4 are great masks. Again, preferences may vary. He might prefer goggles and separate lower face protection.

This might sound stupid and isn't really airsoft related, but I got a label maker and it's been awesome.

u/psycho944 · 3 pointsr/longrange

Amazon has a very affordable pluck and pull foam case. There’s YouTube videos that show how you can plastidip the foam pieces to extend the life of the case but for $70 as opposed to $250+ I can replace it 3-4 times and get a long life out of them.

u/MichaelVash7886 · 3 pointsr/ar15

Do you know the model of the case? I was thinking about picking up this one

u/spaghettilegslee · 3 pointsr/boostedboards

I use this rifle case. The board fits if you take the bottom foam out and leave the egg crate foam that lines the top.

Impossible to steal when using this case because it will come out at most airports with the oversize baggage: skis, golf clubs, etc. Oversize baggage comes out last; after all bags reach the carousel.

At some airports they take it to the baggage customer service representative where they require ID since they assume it's a firearm and they're not going to just let anyone have it.

Plano All Weather Tactical Gun Case, 42-Inch, it's the poor man's Pelican case

u/OlNorthState · 3 pointsr/guns

Try one of these -

Solid enough to get past TSA and cheaper than Pelican.

u/Blaze24250 · 3 pointsr/airsoft

I use Plano Gun Cases for everything. I used to carry my M60 in them fine when I had it

u/CypherFox · 3 pointsr/airsoft

Plano All Weather Tactical Gun Case (42 inches) for $68.67 USD (Prime eligible too!).

I use the 36 inch case for my gun (out of date picture) and I'm able to put in my M4 + 8 magazines, USP Compact + 4 Magazines, Battery box + 2 lipo batteries, sling, and a Stockless M3 trishot shotgun + 7 shells. With the 42 inch case, you'll be able to fit all that and then some.

u/NoShadowOfDoubt · 3 pointsr/boostedboards
u/Rohkii · 3 pointsr/ak47

If you dont have a gun case you should probably buy one if thats what you are talking about.

Id suggest a Plano 42in if your a cheap bastid:

or a Pelican 1750 if you like your cases with caviar:

The only gun upgrade you should do right now is a sling, grab a romy sling off k-var, and learn how to use it. Slings are awesome.

u/special_eddd · 3 pointsr/boostedboards

Plano All Weather Tactical Gun Case, 42-Inch

I have this one. It is perfect and is much cheaper. I primarily leave this case in the car/trunk and put the board in there while doing local commuting. This case is likely an oversize item when boarding planes. So check in fee + oversize fee. Haven't tried tho

u/RipChordCopter · 2 pointsr/gundeals

Weird. I can still get there by clicking on "other sellers" and selecting the 59.99 prime listing.

u/ski_pow · 2 pointsr/gundeals


I ordered this one, same price about, but better case.

u/jonnyrocket · 2 pointsr/ClayBusters

That Pelican that leftnose linked is a much nicer case, but I picked this one up when it was on sale for $60. It protected my gun well on the few flights its been on.

I also used these locks with it. 3 locks that can all open with the same key.

u/wizkid1016 · 2 pointsr/ar15

Ordered it from Amazon and just got it in the mail today.

In this album are pictures of the gun in the case. Very durable.

They have a new generation of the case out but this one was just fine for this rifle, it’s cheaper too for 64$ now

I've had a case flip out the back of the truck then ran over it. Pretty happy with my purchase.

Plano Molding Company All Weather Tactical Gun Case, 42-Inch

u/d3f1ant · 1 pointr/guns

It's not bad, I came across a fluke deal, as these cases are seasonal for wal-mart and are normally closer to $60 bucks.

Here's the case on amazon for reference

u/OllyKloz · 1 pointr/gundeals

Every once in a while these go on sale and different places. Most of the time people will post it if it does. I think I got one for like $52. Pluck the foam and spray with plastidip and it’s awesome

u/NEp8ntballer · 1 pointr/bourbon

thank you for this. After that asshole in Florida shot up the airport I've been hesitant to use my normal booze hauler which is a plano 42 inch gun case. It comfortably fits nine bottles though so I'm sad.

u/evilblackdog · 1 pointr/videography
u/ArmedOne78 · 1 pointr/gundeals

I have one of these and it's great. I'll be picking up a couple more for other firearms. Just spray the foam with plasti-dip and it will last you a long time.

u/RJBligh · 1 pointr/boostedboards

I bought a rifle case to travel with. I thought it would offer more protection than the box or a board bag. This is the one I got:
Plano All Weather Tactical Gun Case, 42-Inch

It's almost perfectly sized; you need to take out the bottom layer of foam but it still fits and feels well protected.

Regarding cost, I was lucky that bags were included in my ticket cost. However I definitely see how it would suck if you had to pay an extra baggage charge.

u/diagela · 1 pointr/gundeals

nearly identical model at amazon for $70 delivered.

This exact mode is $76.46 delivered from amazon, but I am not sure what the difference is, other than one of them having a touch of yellow.

u/ItsHisMajesty · 1 pointr/guns

Here's an inexpensive locking case. They drop as low as $50 time to time.

I treated my internals with Frog Lube paste. When it's time to clean it, some paper towels and a bore snake is all I need. Time consuming up front but with it in the long run. One jar goes a really long way.

u/Plurilizeverthings · 1 pointr/guns

[Lots of good reviews] (

[Free shipping with code FSA1705] (

Both of these cases have been featured on r/gundeals. They have a lot of great stuff over there.

The bottom link is a surplus case and the one I own personally. It is very tough and sturdy and a great choice if you plan on traveling. The top Plano is a bit more cost effective for storage and trips to and from the range.

u/jemiroquai · 1 pointr/boostedboards

Most people tend to suggest this one here
But personally I prefer the rifle cases way more and will be getting this one as soon as I get my V2!

u/Inattuhwankat · 1 pointr/boostedboards

It's this one: Plano All Weather Tactical Gun Case, 42-Inch

It fits ok. Just ok. It bulges a bit when you close it. Still does the job, though.

u/IveBeenInThat · 1 pointr/gundeals

Black handled version now at the same price

Looks like the Plano all weather case . I have one and it's really nice.
