Plano Acquires Doskosport Gun Case Maker

Doskocil cases — you see them everywhere in the gun world. With their durable plastic shells, dimpled foam linings, and distinctive low-profile sliding latches, Doskocil cases are inexpensive, durable and easy to store. This editor must have a dozen Doskocils, large and small.

Well, now Doskocil cases will be made by Plano, another large manufacturer of plastic-shelled gear cases. Plano Molding Co. announced the purchse of Doskocil Mfg.’s Doskosport Outdoor Division, effective immediately. The Doskosport product line includes Gun Guard, Bow Guard, Cargo Golf and related outdoor products. Currently, Plano makes Pro-Max gun cases and Bow-Max bow cases, plus a range of shooting sports and accessory storage cases.

We hope that Plano maintains the Doskocil design features that we like, particularly the sliding latches and recessed handles on the “GunGuard” value-line cases. These features make Doskocil cases much easier to slide in a cardboard shipping box, plus they are more convenient to store in a safe than cases with handles and latches that stick out. We’ll have to wait and see…. All Gun Guard, Bow Guard & Cargo Golf items will be manufactured by Plano by the end of 2007.
