Quality range bag?




I am looking for a quality range bag that can carry at least 2 pistols, glasses, ear muffs, ammo, magazines, ect.
I am the kind that only wants to buy a item like this once and be done with it. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Start put by reading through this thread:
http://forums.1911forum.com/showthre...ighlight=Range

Then search this forum with key words "range bag" for more reading.
The Midway bags are the overwhelming favorites for value. Maybe not the "best" but indistructable.

I have this Midway USA bag.
http://www.midwayusa.com/product/939...tion-range-bag

It has plenty of pockets. Two removable padded pistol rugs fit in pockets in the side of the main bag. The center section is removable so you can carry it around at the range instead of the main bag. It's handy for carrying ammo, mags, and a bottle of water. Another plus is that they're on sale right now.

+ alot, to the OP there are also a few other Threads on this subject that have been done lately and seems to be done at the least twice a month, all of which both sizes of the Midway Range Bag usually have the majority. I use the small one and love it. Also only has to be started in one section.

I really like the Midway Competition Range bag mention already in this thread. I got one for myself and my wife. Now, keep in mind that the Competition bag is fairly big, but being big, it gives lots of room for just about everything you might want/need to have in a range bag.

I have both midway small and large bags. Both are excellent bags. If I were only to have one bag, it would be the large.

I will sell you my new "compact" midway USA bag and split the shipping with you. The bags are huge and shipping costs about $20 IIRC. The compact bag will load out much more than I want to carry and is entirely too big for me. Send me a PM? Ron

The Midway bag is the Chinese copy of the real bag. Shooters Connection Tournamnet Series bag. www.shootersconnection.com I've compared them side by side, the Shooters Connection bag is a better qaulity bag

I bought this same bag a few months back....Pictures don't do it justice.
IT'S FREAKING HUGE!!!!!
Has room for everything I could think of and still has room for a few things I hadn't thought of!
Best bag I ever bought!

Same here, the LG Midway bag holds everything I need. I really like the removable ammo carrier when picking up reloading supplies at local gunshows.

The Midway bags are okay, but nothing to rave about in my opinion. It's a lot of range bag for $40, I admit, but that doesn't mean it's a great bag. These bags are fine if what you're doing is going from the house to the car to the indoor range once a week. The full-size Competition Range bag really IS huge. Wow it's huge; waaay more bag than I've needed. The Compact Competition bag was much more my size and I still have one... It's just that it's been sitting on the shelf since I discovered iShot range bags. iShots will set you back a pretty penny but it's "Cry once," sort of thing.

I got a nice one at my local Army Navy Surplus store. Has two side compartments for pistols, three mag pouches on each side big enough for AR mags and a generous main storage compartment for supplies. It came in digital camo and was around $20 bucks.

That's pretty much what I needed a bag for and it fits the bill. Out of curiosity, what about the more expensive bags is better?

Thanks

I don't know if you shoot long guns or not but Voodoo Tactical has a range bag that holds 2 long guns, 2 pistols, 6 rifle mags and 10 pistol mags. On top of that, it also has another large section to hold a few other things as well.

Significantly better construction. And I do mean "significantly". But if you don't need it, no point in paying for it.

Midway USA bag has 2 pistol rugs, a bag within a bag, and PLENTY of storage space. Not to mention a brass bag that separates brass from dirt and also a drink holder! I paid $60 for mine shipped.

I just bought the Midway comp range bag and it arrived yesterday. FANTASTIC range bag! There is a ton of storage and pockets on the bag. I was able to get over 1000 rounds of 22 ammo just in the front two pockets. I can't wait to fill my bag up. Highly recommend this bag!

I just ordered the Midway "compact" range bag, I went with it for price and from the youtube videos I watched it seemed to be decent construction.
