I recently bought a house-brand Pelican-style camera case from Calumet Photo (since closed in early 2016) to use as a gun case – I figured I needed something with healthy dimensions to accommodate my folded Kel-Tec SUB2000 with optics attached.
To get the length and depth I needed, I had to move up to a pretty large case – but hey, extra space isn’t a bad thing! The case is built like a tank – with four latches and two locking points at each latch.
As you can see, there’s quite a bit of interior real estate – 22.83 x 17.32 x 8.66″ – Internal – filled with a solid one inch piece of foam in the bottom, two layers of pick and pluck (diced) foam and topped with egg-crate foam in the lid.
It took about ten minutes to create the form-fit area for the SUB2K – pretty slick! Next step will be to fit slots for the magazines and mount that Magpul AFG and pluck foam to accommodate it.
That’s a Red Lion Precision, LLC SUB 2000 forend on the Kel-Tec – allows you to index the forend by 90° increments so you can add optics and accessories and still fold it. (Another solid piece of equipment – amazing how much more substantial it makes the gun feel.) More of a review and range-testing to follow soon.
There’s lots of “left-over” space in the case – room for four to six pistols and their mags – more to come on that.
This will make range trips (and grab-n-go) much easier – I’m really liking it!
FTC Disclaimer: I purchased the Kel-Tec SUB2000, the Calumet case, the Red Lion Forend and the Magpul AFG with my own money. I thought it might be worth writing about…I received no wheelbarrows full of cash for writing this short-form review.
(…and bite me).
