Starlight cases recently partnered with Matt Burkett, owner of Predator Tactical, to release a firearms case designed to store and transport everything needed for a 3-gun competition—handgun, AR, shotgun and accessories.
"We are extremely pleased to work with Matt Burkett of Predator Tactical,” said Brack Wilson, vice president of Starlight Cases. “His passion and experience in the shooting sports industry is aligned with our commitment to provide solutions for protecting the gear of shooters worldwide."
The Burkett 3-Gun Kit has a foam interior with a rugged outside made of specially formulated polymer for handling whatever is thrown at it, while maintaining a weight that is under 50 pounds when filled.
"The biggest challenge was reduction of weight while still maintaining and maximizing toughness,” Burkett said. “Those guys throwing around the cases on the tarmac aren't the nicest on them. The goal was a case below 50 pounds with a wheel system and filled with my gear. That's not an easy task.”
The Burkett 3-Gun Kit is available from Predator Tactical or Starlight Cases for $300.
