Custom Cases and SKB

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

Custom-Cases-SKBIt’s easy to say that the most important part of being a gun-owner is practicing gun safety. At PSI, we take safety very seriously. We’ve compiled a small list of gun-safety tips to keep in mind when handling a firearm.

1. Handle any firearm as you would if it was loaded.
2. Don’t joke around. You should never pretend to shoot something, or point the gun at something you don’t actually mean to destroy.
3. Be aware. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings, your target, and what is beyond your target. A gun can be more powerful than you think, and the target may be less powerful than you think. The bullet may go through the target, so its important to pay attention to what else it might hit in the process.
4. Don’t touch the trigger. Unless you are pointing your gun towards your target and are ready to shoot, keep your finger off the trigger. Every time you touch the trigger, you risk possibility of accidentally shooting the gun.
5. Keep your firearms stored safely and properly.

This last tip is especially important to us. If you own a firearm, you usually know the best way to handle it, but do you know the best way to store it? You should never keep a gun out where inexperienced friends, family, or children could get ahold of it. For this reason, it’s important to lock your firearms in a case. The best cases to look into are custom cases from one of our strategic partners, SKB.

SKB offers a wide range of custom cases for your firearms. These include cases that are airtight, waterproof and dust proof, have adjustable foam interiors, and much more. If you’re looking for a case that holds two rifles, SKB can provide you with a case that has a convoluted bunk bed style foam interior. If you’re looking for a small case to hold a pistol, SKB can provide you with a case with a custom interior that has an adjustable high-density foam cutout to fit various pistols. No matter the size or type of your firearm, SKB is the place to go for custom cases.

Practicing gun safety is one of the most important parts of being a gun-owner, and having the right case can help you do so!

The Benefits of a Custom Case

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

A standard solution won’t work for everyone, and a custom case is the best way to address individual needs.

After all, one-size fits all approach isn’t going to work in today’s market. We all have very specific needs, and a consumer deserves to work with a company who takes those needs into consideration. With that in mind, what are the biggest benefits of a custom case?

Rotational-Mold

The Perfect Size

A custom case can provide the exact dimensions to fit your important gear. When transporting items that are extra fragile, a standard case may not be able to properly protect the item. A case being too loose might mean that what you’re transporting becomes damaged or broken, which defeats the purpose of even buying a case. With a custom case, however, you have the benefit of having your exact needs met. Additionally, custom cases can be constructed of materials that help prevent water damage and are shock resistant. For bumpy terrain, this is critical.

Own the Perfect Case

When you create a custom case, you have the ability to have it accessorized in whatever manner you wish. Would adding wheels on your case make it easier to handle? Does the interior need to have extra protection to fully protect what you’re transporting? You’ve probably been in an airport and noticed people struggle with their bags. Wherever you are traveling, you need to account for whatever situations may arise. A regular case may slow you down, but a custom case will help you stay on the move and will not weigh you down.

Work with a Professional

When you work with a professional custom case builder, you will be able to fin a custom solution for your needs. With years of experience, the right company can help you design exactly what you have in mind, and use years of experience to help you reach an efficient and optimized solution for your custom case.

Characteristics of a Packaging Company

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

When you are looking for a packaging company to create your new custom equipment cases, you don’t want to choose the first name you hear of. It is essential to conduct research of a packaging company to determine if they are the right fit for your needs. If you choose the wrong packaging company, your equipment could be left damaged, and your budget could be left empty. Instead of choosing a name from a hat, look for a few different characteristics to determine if the packaging company is right for you.
Packaging-Company

The first characteristic to consider in your packaging company is their reputation. Ask to see some of their past work and if they have ever worked on any major projects. You should also ask for a list of references. If the company is unwilling to provide you with the information, it can be a clear sign that their reputation is less than desirable.

A packaging company should also be able to provide you with a customized case that suits your needs. They should be able to provide you with a list of options to help create a case that meets all of your needs.

A reliable packaging company should use quality materials to create their products. Low quality materials may seem cheaper in the initial price, but could lead to serious costs in damages to your equipment.
A packaging company is only as strong as its staff. When you visit with a potential packaging company, talk to different members of the staff. By talking to staff, you can get a sense of the work that is done along with the knowledge and skill the hired staff contains.
