Smith & Wesson Range Bags For The Professional

Smith & Wesson came out with a new series of range bags made by Allen Company for the professional service man or serious shooting enthusiast. The Smith & Wesson M&P range bags feature plenty of features to set them apart from most brands selling similar products.

The Smith & Wesson M&P Active Duty Equipment Bag features sturdy construction with 1200D polyester fabric for years of dependable service. The ample sized 19″ x 8″ x 13″H bag has a semi-rigid internal support system that keeps the bags shape and holds it upright – even when only partially filled. Most other bags simply fall into a heap if they are not filled with gear. The removable interior divider, ID holder and exterior straps and pockets make it easy to customize the range bag to your gear.

Another great bag from Smith & Wesson is the Pro Series Tactical Range Bag. The large size 13″ x 10″ x 9″, and 6 pockets for shooting accessories hod plenty of gear. And the 10 internal magazine holders keep your mags organized and ready for use. Made from 1200D polyester fabric, this bag will last for years of heavy usage.

For a smaller application, the Smith & Wesson M&P Basic Ammo Bag will hold two handguns in the included removable handgun rugs. And the external MOLLE web system for gear attachment allows this bag to hold way more gear than the 10″ x 9″ x 15″ size would otherwise indicate. Again 1200D polyester fabric, plus a dual zippered main compartment show the quality that Smith & Wesson demands.

All of the Smith & Wesson M&P range bags feature a black shell with gray embroidered M&P by Smith & Wesson logos proudly displayed. There is also a whole series of gun cases that match the range bags so that your equipment is not only protected, but shows your pride in the Smith & Wesson brand.

SKB Breakdown Shotgun Cases – Unique Designs And Superior Protection

If traveling with a breakdown shotgun, or if you simply want a great breakdown shotgun case for storage, we recommend the SKB Breakdown Shotgun Cases. The SKB gun case line is made in the USA and most have lifetime warranties on the gun case. They also feature a $1500 content protection warranty that will cover damage to your firearm if it occurs in the SKB gun case. For breakdown shotgun cases, SKB has several convenient sizes.

The SKB 3i-3614-CB Watertight Custom Breakdown case accommodates shotguns with two barrels and one receiver up to 35”. The custom molded interior is a nice option over most breakdown gun cases that only have foam, and nothing to keep you gun components in their respective positions. There are pockets for the barrels, receiver, and also extra spots for choke tubes and other accessories. The case measures 36.5” L x 14.5” W x 5.5” D, and will fit most standard breakdown shotgun configurations.

For traveling with two shotguns, the SKB 3i-3614-CB-D MIL-STD Watertight Injection Molded Double Custom Breakdown Case has a custom molded interior that will fit two barrels and two receivers. The case has the same 36.5” L x 14.5” W x 5.5” D dimensions as the single receiver model.

An older style SKB breakdown case is the 2SKB-320B. This case features a more ridged interior molded to fit most popular breakdown shotguns, and has a green plush fabric liner. The case is not as forgiving on the interior to fit non-standard guns or barrel lengths, but is a more compact 32″ x 9″ x 5″ size.

A final variation is the 2SKB-3209 Custom Skeet Breakdown Shotgun Case. The case has the same bottom molded interior as the 2SKB-3209B, but also features 6 skeet barrel inserts in separate lid compartment. This is one of only a few gun cases that offer the skeet insert feature.

No matter which SKB breakdown shotgun case you purchase, you can rest assured that your gun will be protected – even when flying.

Weatherproof Gun Cases – Are they Worth The Money?

When it comes to storing a gun or traveling with a firearm, many people wonder if a weatherproof gun case is worth the money? The answer depends on what type of conditions you will be facing, and how valuable your gun is worth.

Most gun owners store their guns in the basement of their home. A typical basement is high in humidity and poor in circulation. A gun stored in this condition will suffer from corrosion, and in some cases, wood damage to the stock over time. A weather proof gun case would be a good option for storing a gun in this condition. What makes a gun case weatherproof is an O-ring seal to keep out moisture and dust. If you store a gun in a weatherproof gun case, it is still very important to keep a desiccant in the gun case. This is because any moisture in the air that gets closed in with the gun when the case is sealed will still cause corrosion to your firearm. The O-ring on the case only keeps new moisture from getting in, it does nothing to remove existing moisture. So keep all of the little desiccantpacks that you get when buying electronics, etc. and throw them in your gun case to absorb moisture.

When traveling with a gun, a weather resistant gun case also makes a lot of sense. A typical planes baggage compartment is unpressurized. This means that the temperature will fall from the surface temp at the airport, to temperatures that can be below freezing once the plane reaches altitude. Any moisture in the air will condense out and lay on the surface of the firearm. A weather resistant gun case will keep new moisture from entering the case during the flight, and reduce damage to the gun. Also, if you have ever seen a plane being loaded in the rain, you can see the obvious reason why you would not want your gun in a case that doesn’t keep out moisture.

Several good weather resistant gun cases on the market are the Plano All Weather series, and the SKB Gun Case product line. Both of these series of gun cases have rubber O-rings to keep out dust and moisture. Plus the molded construction allows the gun case to flex keeping the O-ring seal touching the flange of the case to assure a tight seal. Some of the smaller gun cases seal so well that a pressure relief valve is required to make it easier to open the gun case.

If you plan to travel with your gun, or simply need to store it in a safe manor, Explore Products has experts available to help you choose which gun case will best suit your needs. Happy hunting and safe shooting.

Why Aluminum Handgun Cases Over Other Choices

There are many gun cases on the market today. The consumer is left with many choices when buying a handgun case. Aluminum, plastic, composite and soft gun cases are among some of the choices. So why choose an aluminum handgun case?

If you are simply storing a handgun or transporting it to the shooting range, then a simple soft handgun case will probably suffice for most gun case purchasers. But if you plan on flying, or simply need a more rugged option for storing your pistol, then we recommend looking at an aluminum handgun case, Aluminum gun cases tend to be higher priced than other choices. But the durability of a metal case over other options can’t be beat.

The Kalispel Style of aluminum gun cases is a great example of quality and durability. These handgun cases are made out of 0.080″ thick aircraft grade aluminum. These cases are made in the USA, and feature a lifetime warranty. These are the thickest aluminum cases on the market, with most cheaper aluminum cases being made out of 0.063″ aluminum, and made in China. The Kalispel Style cases have welded corners which, if you think about it, means the case material is extra thick (try welding an aluminum pop can). The durability of the aluminum case won’t change with temperature or other environmental factors. And the case may show scratches and dents over time, but will withstand extra abuse when being handled by others and still protect your handgun.

The Kalispel Style aluminum handgun cases also feature heavy duty metal hinges that would not be possible on a plastic case. And the rivets are sealed to keep out moisture. Stainless steel latches and a stainless steel locking rod also keep out unwanted visitors. Plus extra dense interior flat foam keeps your pistols where you put them, and prevent them from sliding around.

Kalispel Style handgun cases are available exclusively from Explore Products. Sizes include 15″ x 10″, 18″ x 13″, 24″ x 14″, and 26″ x 17″, with the depth being 4.5″ on all four sizes.

Extra thick durable material, made in the USA, and a lifetime warranty are some of the reasons to choose a Kalispel Style handgun case. But the durability of aluminum construction simply can’t be beat by other styles of gun cases.


Gunzilla – Not Your Grandfather’s Gun Cleaner

There have been a lot of advancements in gun cleaners in recent years. The products perform better and are less toxic to the user and environment. And most new gun cleaners are CLP – clean, lubricate, protect – formulas. One of the newer brands that we have tried is Gunzilla.

Gunzilla is a non-toxic, CLP, gun cleaner formula. Gunzilla is made from plants and contains no petroleum or water. Gunzilla is designed to reduce weapon malfunctions caused by sand, carbon and cold temperatures, and can be used on all combat weapons and sporting weapons. Gunzilla is safer for skin contact than traditional cleaners containing hazardous chemicals, and is soap and water cleanup. Gunzilla also will not freeze, though it will turn into a light grease below 29 degrees F.

Gunzilla CLP Gun Cleaner removes rust, carbon, copper, lead, plastic (from shotgun wads) and cleans corrosive ammo residue faster than traditional cleaners. It can be left on the gun for an extended period of time without damaging the gun. Gunzilla is available in 1.9 ounce, 4 ounce, 8 ounce and 16 ounce bottles. It is more expensive than older style gun cleaners, but you do not need to use as much product to get the same results.

Also available for the Gunzilla line is Copperzilla. Copperzilla will remove the most difficult and severe copper, lead and plastic fouling quickly within 30 minutes without hurting the bore. And Copperzilla is also made from plants and is non-toxic. After using Copperzilla, you should follow up with Gunzilla to protect against corrosion.

And Gunzilla is trusted by soldiers. A quote directly from a combat unit in Iraq: “Not only does this save my Soldier’s time, but I’m sure it has saved their lives. They can go into sector with confidence and know that even when Iraq is at it’s worst, Gunzilla is at it’s best.” Gunzilla is also used at the National Shooting Championships at Camp Perry where many shooters tell us they have scored the highest scores they have ever scored using Gunzilla.

In summary, there are new gun cleaners that work better and are less toxic than the older varieties on the market. We recommend trying the 1.9 ounce size, and then buying a larger bottle to refill after you have seen the results for yourself. Gunzilla and all gun cleaning products can be purchased at Explore Products. Safe shooting.
