Plano Products Aplenty

Plano Rifle Case

Plano Molding Company has released a number of new products for the coming year. Here are a few of the products that may be of interest to readers:

Green All Weather Double Rifle Case

This new case is large enough to hold a pair of scoped rifles or shotguns. The interior is foam lined and designed to be custom fitted to your guns. The lid has a Dri-Loc gasket to keep out the rain, though it is not rated as being submergible. The case does have wheels for easy transportation.

Hunting Stool

Plano is also selling a hunting stool made from its #1812 field box. To the box, the company added a seat cushion, carry strap and exterior pockets. The idea is to combine a seat with storage. Plano did something similar in 2015 with the box, though without the seat.

Compact Crossbow Case

For crossbow enthusiasts, Plano now offers the Spire Compact Crossbow Case. This hard plastic case has multiple carry handles and heavy duty latches for transport and storage. The case will stand on its side to fit tighter confines. The interior has foam padding, and there are hasps on the exterior for securing the case with a padlock. Although they will fit, I think this case is a touch of overkill for these mini crossbows.

Field Locker Medium Pistol Case

This case is designed to be very heavy duty and is said to meet mil-spec for immersion, transit drop, vibration and dust. It has a Dri-Loc gasket and a pressure release valve. It uses stainless steel hasps for locking points.

  • How many of these are tsa approved for airline travel according to airline rules?

    • Cymond

      Are there new rules? A few years ago, the only requirement was a sturdy, locked box that couldn’t be pulled open.

      • Not all locked cases such as plastic ones you could snap the hinge off or cut the hinge off are allowed.

        • Cymond

          Hence my use of the word “sturdy”. I flew several times with a heavy duty polymer tool box full of guns.

          As far as I know, there is no exact set of specifications for TSA compliance regarding material, size, thickness, lock types, etc. Additionally, I can’t find anywhere that the TSA ‘approves’ of certain cases. All they say is “The container must completely secure the firearm from being accessed. Locked cases that can be easily opened are not permitted.”

    I own 2 Plano Gun Guard cases, a double similar to the one in the picture and a single both are TSA approved and both are of great quality. I caught both on sale and am very happy with them. Highly reccommended.

      I have a few of their cases/boxes myself and could not agree more. Plus, Walmart carries plano products so the price and availability is great too.

    Odd that they don’t list prices or stores at the site.
