Shoddy carrying cases often are the reason weaponry for U.S. military and law enforcement personnel are lost, stolen or damaged. Substandard gear harms the mission to stop terrorism. Police and the more than 30,000 troops to be deployed to Afghanistan this year require a rugged, shock proof and reusable transport solution — ‘Top kick’ in the carrying case chain of command. Therefore, global defense strategists salute the new GunCruzer KR-20 Gun Case created by CaseCruzer.

This nation’s Air Combat Command and Air Force officers concur: theft and damage due to subpar transport luggage is a vexing problem. The GunCruzer KR-20 solution leads the way in safety and durability. It deters malicious sabotage and pilfering by meeting stringent, federal and military rifle and pistol luggage regulations that require four padlock flanges for all rifle cases.

The case also is fitted with reinforced hinges, side and front folding handles and wheels for mobility in any terrain. The 45″L x 17″W x 6.38″H inch exterior dimensions of the new wide-body gun case improves previous designs because it can accommodate both popular weapons, such as the M4 or the M16 rifle, as well as many handgun brands and sizes, including the M9 and M11 (or P228).

The GunCruzer KR-20 never loses its head: After throwing the easy-trigger latches, the lid quickly opens but does not tilt back. In fact, it stays upright on its own for unencumbered accessibility. It also is shockproof, watertight and airtight (with an O-ring seal). Each case is reusable and is fitted with an automatic pressure release valve. And when empty it weighs just 20.51 lbs.

The top lid interior of the carrying case is cushioned with convoluted egg-crate style foam. The base of the KR-20 is padded with Polyethylene foam that includes multiple removable plugs for M16 and M4 rifles. And there are cut-outs for seven rifle magazines, accessories, rail-mounted optics and one desiccant.

Three magazine cut-outs for pistols are also included, as well as foam plugs that can snugly hold a long list of large and compact pistols: Beretta M9 (the standard pistol for U.S. Army and Air Force Security Forces); 1911s (Colt, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, Sig Sauer); Sig Sauer models: P226 (in use by U.S. Navy SEALs, Federal agents, and law enforcement agencies), P228 (designated as the M11 by U.S. military); P250 (military, law enforcement, and civilian sportsmen), or P239; H&K USP-Compact .45 Auto; Colt Defender 7000D; XD Tactical Model 5″ XD and Sub-Compact 3″.

CaseCruzer knows war is hell with faulty equipment. The GunCruzer KR-20 Gun Case was designed to honor the integrity and commitment of the nearly 146,000 U.S. troops now serving in Iraq. And the more than 11,000 soldiers that will rotate in Afghanistan throughout 2010.
