A week later I could see a rust outline around my fingerprint. I could wipe it away, but I’ve seen fingerprints pit the metal of a gun. You need to be responsible for a nice firearm. Fortunately, Colorado is not nearly as laborious as other climates.

The watertight GunCruzer gun case, made specifically for Remington 700 Series scoped rifles, is perfect for sportsmen hunting for a case as tough as the back country. This indestructible carrying case always comes home in one piece – no handles torn off or latches bashed or feet mangled. When the hunter is ready for action, so is his firearm.
GunCruzer was conceived as another rough and tumble product by CaseCruzer. This exceptional Pelican case is a hard nut to crack. But its interior is a soft, sturdy nest: The custom closed cell Polyethylene foam padding and convoluted foam egg-crate lid guarantee a snug fit for all Remington 700 S rifles. A bumpy country road will do no harm. Neither will a careless baggage handler at the airport or bus depot.
The wheeled GunCruzer is 38.12 inches long, 17.81-inches wide and 6.12-inches high. With fold-down handles it can easily squeeze into a tightly packed camper or pick-up. And it is guaranteed to survive any kind of nasty a tough terrain can deliver. If it doesn’t, CaseCruzer will replace it –- for life.
GunCruzer can swim, too. The gun case is watertight and buoyant up to 137 lbs., which makes it the ideal carrying case for river, lake or marshland areas. Extreme heat or cold won’t hurt it. Rain, sleet or snow are no threat. And saltwater conditions? No contest.
Matt Starr, vice president of the Rifle Sportsmen’s Club in Colorado, said transporting firearms can create problems. For example, outdoorsmen regularly travel from distant places by air and land to hunt in his area. Often, before they go into the field, they visit his club to adjust shooting scopes that have been knocked off-kilter en route.
“The first thing is the air travel. You never know what might have happened to the guns in transit. And then there is the long drive; perhaps two or three hours to the hunting site. There’s a lot of opportunity for things to happen along the way. Proper care and cleaning of the rifle is one thing. But I believe protecting the zero-setting of the firearm scope is the number one concern,” he said.
Yet cleaning a gun well before storing it is essential. Starr once lived in the humid state of Florida. While cleaning his gun, he inadvertently left a fingerprint on the barrel. “A week later I could see a rust outline around my fingerprint. I could wipe it away, but I’ve seen fingerprints pit the metal of a gun. You need to be responsible for a nice firearm. Fortunately, Colorado is not nearly as laborious as other climates.”
Storage in a dust-proof GunCruzer means a Remington 700 Series scoped rifle will resist rust and function properly – assuming maintenance and service are on schedule –- when a sportsman pulls it out for the next hunting season. And it includes standard and reliable Pelican case features, such as automatic purge valve with Gore-Tex® membrane and easy-to-open double-throw latches. GunCruzer. It’s built to survive.
