Aluminum Rifle Case Advice

July 7, 2011   Filed under Travel

There are many people across the world that have guns, but very few that know anything more than just pulling the trigger. A lack of knowledge about guns is a dangerous thing. How you store your guns and the care that you take to upload or unload ammunition are crucial facts that should never be overlooked at any point in time. This article focuses on metal gun cases, but all gun owners can benefit from the information.

The protection a gun case can provide is limited to the way you use it, and price is not the most important consideration when buying a gun case. The cheaper a certain type of material the easier it will be for it to succumb to wear and tear over time. Look at the finish of the case to see how it has been coated and ask yourself the questions: is it an electroplating finish or just a common finish?

It is really no brainer that your gun should actually hold in your gun case along with the ammunition that you intend to carry with it. Many people believe that for safely reasons they should not store their ammunition in the same place as they are storing their guns, but the plain truth about this is that such a decision is just the same as trying to hit a burglar that is holding a machine gun with a baseball bat coming from a frontal direction-you are bound to lose if there is an emergency and you need to act fast to save either your life or the life of someone else.

This rule depends on the situation, but is often the case. While metal gun cases tend to be resistant against break-in attempts, there are cases in which you may want to store the ammunition far from where the actual gun is-this is the best approach especially when you have children.

Never point a loaded gun in your direction when you are trying to clean it. This might sound like it is not worth mentioning, but you will be surprised how many people actually remove a loaded gun from a metal gun case with the intention to clean the gun. Whether they innocently forget to unload the gun or just could not bother to go through the hassle or unloading and loading it again is not really the issue-the issue is that you should never try to clean a loaded gun.
