We have sold the Voodoo Tactical padded weapons cases for years, and these are quite popular with customers who need a case to carry their weapons to the range or in the field. Voodoo Tactical makes a wide range of sizes and offers soft cases designed for shotguns, subguns, carbines, hunting rifles, and even large .50 caliber sniper rifles. Their cases come in a wide range of colors and styles, including lockable cases that allow customers in states like California to meet the legal requirements of transporting their weapons in a locked case.
As good as the Voodoo Tactical padded weapons cases are, however, they do not meet the standards for checking weapons on an airline. In general, airlines require that the weapons be in a lockable, hard case. When you consider that a weapon checked on an airline will be out of your sight and out of your control for hours, having a tough, solidly built, lockable case is a darn good idea. Captain Dave’s has added a new line of hard shell firearm cases from Quick Fire Cases that we feel are top of the line.
Quick Fire offers a range of waterproof pistol cases, shotgun cases, and rifle cases, but one thing that truly sets them apart is the foam inside the case. This durable, mil-spec foam will protect your weapon from extreme handling and resists solvents so it won’t be degraded by gun oils. The foam inserts also come pre-cut to fit your specific weapon or, in the multi-fit pistol cases, to fit more than 50 different models of pistols, from compact to full size. And because the foam inserts are molded to fit your weapon, you do not need to spend time manually configuring your case to your gun.
