Hard Case Update

 Many of my readers may recall that we flew to Reno in late September to attend the World Championship of Cowboy Fast Draw.  I had to break the code on airline travel with firearms, and it wasn't as bad as I anticipated.

We used an Apache hard case from Harbor Freight, and the pick-apart foam liner did not perform very well.  It was flimsy, and while it made the trip, it soon also made the trash can.  However, a buddy of mine makes work aids for helicopter mechanics, and he makes quite a few hard cases to ship high-dollar product in.  His CNC table is set up to cut high-density foam for shipping boxes, and he saw an opportunity, so he took my case and guns for a little design work.

The case is an Apache (Harbor Freight) and the insert is high-density foam from Helicopter Work Aids.

Another photo, without the revolvers.

It's fine work, cut on CNC machines.  I'm pleased.  They are branching out into other patterns of firearms.  They will soon be able to cut Glock, 1911 and other patterns.  For more information, call Alan, at 318-308-0643.
