This durable construction continues with the interior lid fully lined in thick egg carton-style foam. Thick foam inserts allow you to customize the interior of this gun case to ensure the perfect fit for your favorite tactical firearm, even with that impressive scope mounted on.

An over-molded handle provides a sure grip that makes transporting your firearm all the easier. To give you extra peace of mind while carrying or storing your weapon, the latches on this hard tactical gun case can also each be locked to provide additional security. This solid tactical gun case is perfect for storing your gun at home or transporting your weapon to and from the firing range.

Honorable Mention: Flambeau Tactical Gun Case

The Flambeau Tactical Gun Case is a rugged hard case that maintains a cool presentation without being too bulky. This tactical gun case has thick egg carton-style foam on the interior’s top and bottom. It comes with customizable dividers and Velcro straps that allow you to choose how to position your AR, while also storing accessories and extra mags that won’t be in contact with your firearm.

Once you’ve figured out the perfect placement for your rifle within the case, you can cut the foam where you will place the dividers to create larger unpadded storage areas. The Velcro straps are permanently secured via grommets and, once in place, hold the foam padding securely.

This hard tactical gun case comes in black and features a one-piece molded handle. Externally, it measures 41.5 by 15 by 5 inches. The Flambeau latches tight and has a strong seal, so while this helps to provide extra protection to your firearm, it pays to keep your fingers free from the handle while closing and latching it. In addition to allowing for additional storage inside, the dividers also serve to protect your firearm from corrosion. This great feature adds one more level of protection for your firearm.

What is the Best Tactical Gun Case?

The best tactical gun case doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Many of the gun cases we looked at provided all the protection you need for storing and transporting your AR rifle while leaving you with plenty of money to purchase more ammunition.

When it came to choosing our favorite of these amazing gun cases, we had to choose the VooDoo Tactical Soft Gun Case. The backpack-style shoulder straps are terribly convenient, as are the lockable pockets. We also love the range of color choices available and MOLLE compatibility.
