    What's your Rnage Bag

    Looking to put together my first real range bag.

    What bag do you guys use and why. Pics appreciated!

    I've looked a bit at the Maxpedition Compact Range Bag. Is $150 too much for quality bag?


    Edit:
    Holy poop. Just noticed the typo in the thread title. How embarrassing:
    Maybe a Mod can fix it for me.

    Who are you trying to impress?

    This http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/ZAA-095 or any of these http://tinyurl.com/b8v9phq should be more than sufficient. Maybe one of each so you don't get confused where your ammo is?

    stay safe.

    Not trying to impress anyone. Just like heavy duty, quality stuff. That's why I asked. If there is a more economical bag that is still has suffient quality to it, I'd like to check it out.

    Ammo Can huh? I have a couple of those.

    Midway has a nice selection and the ones I have seem to be well made.

    I just use a Timbuk2 messenger bag I picked up at REI's bargain bin. Looks inconspicuous, just like the thousands of bags you see.

    Ha ha! I've thought about using mine for my ammo bag.

    What's your Rnage Bag

    I've had the same basic Walmart range bag for 7 years now. I bought it for $20 and it's still in great shape and I hit the range at least once per week.

    I've several. The ones that came from yard sales get used a lot more often than that huge bag I bought from Dillon. Camera bags make great range bags and they are frequent finds at yard sales. Computer backpacks are perfect if you need a backpack style.

    That said, Maxpedition stuff is nice.

    My range bag is made by Glock - or at least marketed by and bearing the Glock logo. Well-made, heavy duty, and will hold 4 handguns and a little ammo, or one Glock and a LOT of ammo. It works for me. Pax...

    I don't use a bag. I use a bullseye pistol competitor's box with attached pistol scope and room for eight handguns and ammunition.

    I got mine from Champion's Choice in TN.

    I have an "Allen" bag from Dicks Sporting Goods. I think it was about $40 and holds two handgun cases nicely as we'll as a cleaning kit and has lots of Velcro pockets for ammo. It also has two soft and fluffy mats to put your weapons on at the range if there's no good place to lay them.

    Amazon, has a good selection also. There is no right or wrong bag. If you asked a 100 people on this, or any forum which is best you will get 110 answers. Take an inventory of your gear, and what you would like to normally take to the range, and go from there. There is nothing wrong with having a quality equipment, but some manufacturers get too carried away with their brand label prices. Good example - North Face is a great company, but I got a fleece jacket from Cabelas bargain bin for $30 that is as good or better than the jacket my daughter got with the NF logo that cost about $150.

    What's your Rnage Bag

    So, I was doing official research by watching YouTube Videos about Range Bags. I saw a review for a bag by LA Police Gear for only $20. So I took the plunge. Got it today and it's way better than you'd expect for what you pay for it.

    Worth it!

    Nice, and you saved $120 even with shipping. Another company for good prices is Sportsman Guide. I'm on their e-mail list, and they have sales with free shipping for purchases over X dollars and right now free shipping for any purchase. Now get out to the range, and do some shooting!
