The Ultimate Firearms Destination for the Gun Lifestyle

[SHOT Show 2017] New Plano Outdoors Tactical Field Lockers

You're likely more used to associating Illinois-based Plano with cases for fishing tackle, or perhaps for their archery storage options. That's not all they do, however, as anyone who has used Plano Outdoors rifle cases will attest. Their latest offering is a series of field lockers, what their calling their Tactical Series. There are four types – three for long guns, one for handguns. If you missed them at SHOT, we have some details for you below.

SHOT Show 2017: Plano Outdoors Tactical Field Lockers

Plano Tactical

Plano Molding Company has enjoyed nearly 70 years of success and longevity by applying their significant engineering and manufacturing resources to produce storage and transport products that protect their customers’ passions. And with an ever-increasing sea of new products available in the greater tactical market, Plano is doubling down to offer consumers more specialized tactical storage cases for firearms, ammunition and accessories than ever before.

Building on the release of their premium line of Field Locker Mil-Spec Cases in 2015, which now includes three long gun cases, three pistol cases and a compound bow case, Plano announces the 2017 release of their all-new Tactical Series Gun Cases, consisting of three all-new Tactical Long Gun Cases and a Tactical Pistol Case. A Tactical Ammo Crate is also available in the series.

Filling the need for uncompromising yet more moderately-priced hard-sided firearms and accessory cases, Plano’s tough new Tactical Series Cases combine heavy-duty materials and hardware with a variety of tactical features that suck it up and drive on. Long-gun cases, for example, feature numerous internal and external lash-down and strapping points for maximum versatility. Standard long-gun models come in either 38.75” or 44.25” lengths, while an additional MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment) version is also available. The new Tactical Pistol Case shares the same striking aesthetics and is large enough to accommodate one large, scoped pistol or two large-frame pistols. All new Tactical Series Gun Cases include molded-in padlock tabs.

“These all-new Tactical cases have an almost sinister look and offer extreme protection and enhanced utility at a great price,” says Plano Brand Manager, Scott Borto, who is particularly enthusiastic about the new Tactical MOLLE Gun Case, which features a removable ballistic nylon wrap with storage pocket and practical MOLLE webbing over the center section of the case’s exterior.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.
Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc
