    I was going through my boxes the other day and realized how many soft cases I have, only some of which are pictured.

    Does anyone actually use them as range bags? Just curious, really. :dunno:

    I have large hard cases that I use for range trips.

    I use them if I'm taking only a few pistols, I throw them all in a large range bag. I save the logo marked ones that came with new guns in case I ever sell the gun.

    This is just another way for BAC to show off his semi custom and custom arsenal LOL. Unfortuneatly i do not own any firearms that have came in soft cases YET. But I do have 3 Wilson bags i use for various guns and i also use them as competition cases to carry bare essentials.

    I don't have any of those, but I have a stack of black plastic boxes that'll put the Tupperware people right out of business. And I don't even want to tell what we do with those black plastic rods....

    I have a small cheap one from Gander Mountain for my 1911. I like it as it protects it from getting scratched. I keep it in it often.

    I have the big Green Mountain range bag that my wife got me for my birthday a couple years ago. One bag carries guns, ammo, all my gear and even a couple bottles of water.

    I use mine occasionally, but usually I rely on a larger range bag.

    Dude who are you kidding? If your CCO came with one you'd be saying "this isn't a man-purse, it's a 1911 carrycase. You can be tuff, and carry your ammo and stuff".

    I do not use mine very often. They are not big enough to hold my gun, magazines, and all of my ammo usually.

    I use a range bag.

    I now have the one above that keninnavarre mentioned. If I'm just taking my LB, that's it's home. I really enjoyed having the Wilson bag that came with the CQB, that's why I bought the $9 one from lapolicegear. 1 man satchel for 1 semi-custom :whistling:
