do semis come in plastic cases and revolvers come in cardboard boxes?

I think it varies by manufacturer, not model. All my Tauruses (Taurii?) came in black boxes, revolvers and semis.
And my Bersa semi's came in cardboard too....

My Taurus, S&W and Beretta, and my GF's S&K and Sig semis (5) all came in plastic.

My Taurus revolvers and my GF's S&W revolver (3) came in cardboard.

Para Ordnance comes in plastic storage cases.
Oh, but my PT1911 DID come in a plastic case. But it was the only Tuaurus that did.

Because the manufacturers are watching you, and they know it irritates you.........

Regardless of what type of container they come in, each if our handguns gets it's very own "cozy" or pistol rug that is carefully selected to make sure that it's not too small or too big, that it has sufficient padding to protect the firearm during transport and storage, and that it can be labeled for easy identification. Some are even selected by color so that the hg's that are "mine" are obviously mine :D as opposed to those that are "ours" or solely DH's. And I select some cozies simply because the are really fuzzy and warm looking on the inside!

Remember when the box looked like this? I still have the original box for my early model PT-99 with European Mag release.

I don't know why either. Personally I wish they all came in cardboard, when I get one in a plastic case I can't help but think, "I paid extra for that useless plastic box in the price of the gun". I have never used any of the boxes my handguns have came. They just sit in a stack on top of the safe.

The plastic cases do seem to be pretty worthless. The only hg that I leave in its factory case is my XD45c.

My only "bought new" gun is my PT-92. It came in a black cardboard box with the extra magazine. It has never been back in that box. It resides in a Boyt gun rug.
