I recently purchased my first pistol for home security/ defense. Dissapointed to find out that it didn't include a case a negotiated a discount on the gun and decided to put the money I saved toward an after market case. I originally got a Pelican single pistol case but it seemed way too small and I returned it. After a week or so of scouring the net for just the right case I settled on this one based on the pictures/ price/ dimensions. The pistol has a diamond plated print and I liked that this case appeared to have a similar diamond plate print on the sides as shown in the pictures that would match the gun. It shipped fast and arrived in a box inside of a box/ wrapped in plastic/ new. I was disapointed to see that the diamond plate print was replaced by stripes and a stamped plastic "Loaded Gear" logo on each side of the case. The outer materials are primarily hard plastic, not rubber or aluminum. The combination was easy to set but does not seem to be too sturdy, the number wheels are a little loose and the latch could easily be broken open be a determined individual. The hinge on the inside is cheaply made and attached by one tiny screw at each anchor point which I had to tighten and will probably come loose again later. The inside is slopily covered/ with a glued down, thin foam padding skin w/ ~1 inch mini eggcrate foam on the top and bottom. The pre-perforated foam layer worked but is mishapen in the corners/ near the latch where it was crammed in and the non-perfd edge is inconsistent in width. If you are looking for quality made and secure case for a gun or other valuable I would recommned spending a little more $ for a pelican or similar. I decided to keep the case to avoid hassle of return btu will most likely replace it in a year or so.
The quality is excellent, A beautiful handbag. You would never know that a gun is concealed in the side. It also has a Velcro strap inside for the gun to rest in. So easy in and out in an emergency situation. Plenty of room in the rest of the bag. Love the outside pockets with buckles/snaps. The side where the gun is plain, which you want so it fits smoothly against you plus makes it easy to gain entry to your gun. I would strongly recommend this purse to anyone wanting a safe place to carry your concealed weapon. Straps are just the right size as well. I purchased the black, wouldn't hesitate to purchase again.
***This is the best hard storage case at this price! You will NOT find anything else at this quality for this price*** The plastic used is very durable and has a solid feel. Several cases may be stacked on top of each other without the bottom case dipping or lose it's air tight seal. The foam used inside is high quality and best cut with a large bread knife. The interior size of the case allows for easy configurations such as 2 full size rifles, or rifle and hand gun with all magizines, accessories and cleaning kits. The exterior dimensions of the case are large and it may not fit under the bed. The 4 locking machanisms are of high quality and seal the case air tight. The 2 pad lock eyes will require 1-1/2" (38mm) shackle height pad locks. The wheels are a nice feature due the weight of the case with contents but will easily tip over if you leave it standing unattended. This may make it difficult to stand it in your closet without it leaning against your clothes or wall. This case is best suited for travel, storge, or extreme conditions. They turn a lot of heads at the gun range but they can be heavy and a bit cumbersome. Again...This is the BEST hard storage case at this PRICE! You will NOT find anything else at this quality for this price! I bought two and have begged the wife for another.
