Industry leaderPlano Tactical is expanding its portfolio of tactical storage cases for firearms and ammunition in 2017,whichyou cansee at theATAand SHOTshows.


U


SA-based Plano Molding Company has enjoyed nearly 70 years of success and longevity by applying its 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 specialised tactical storage cases for firearms,ammunition and accessories than ever before. Building on the company’s release of its 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 tells GTW that it will unveil six additional all-new tactical cases at the upcoming ATA and SHOT shows in January. These offerings are expected to include a Field Locker


waterproof ammo can, as well as three Tactical long gun cases, a Tactical pistol case and a Tactical ammo box.


TOP PERFORMANCE Plano brand manager Mike Edwards revealed: “The Field Lockerwaterproof ammo can takes the .50 cal Plano ammo can that hunters and shooters around the world are familiar with to the true, military-spec performance level of the Field Locker series. It’ll be the first guaranteed waterproof ammo can of its kind on the market.” Filling the need for innovative, yet more moderately priced hard-sided firearms


and accessory cases, Plano’s Tactical Series cases combine heavy-duty materials and hardware with numerous internal and external lash-down and strapping points for maximum versatility. Standard long-gun models will by either 38¾ or 44¼ inches long, and an additional


MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment) version will also be produced. The Tactical Series will also include a pistol case and ammo box. Mike added: “These all-new Tactical cases have an almost sinister look and offer


extreme protection and utility at a great price.” He is particularly enthusiastic about the Tactical MOLLE gun case, which features


a removable ballistic nylon wrap with storage pockets and practical MOLLE webbing over the centre section of the case’s exterior. He continued: “Our highly successful X-2 Range bag series taught us that we can


add a tremendous amount of value and utility to our moulded tactical cases by incorporating snug-fiting and durable wraps on their exteriors. It’s a feature that our customers like and have really spoken up about.” Plano now offers consumers more than 140 distinct hard and soſt cases for safe


and reliable transport and storage of their hunting and shooting gear and accessories. Its Tactical Series cases and Field Lockerwaterproof ammo can will be officially


released at the 2017 ATA and SHOT shows, and are expected to be available for shipping to retailers in March.
