    Hello, new gun owner here. I'm looking for a good quality range bag. Looking to hold two to three guns, ammo, cleaning kit, mags and all the other essential accessories to head out to the range.. I've been looking at the 5.11 range qualifier bag but not sure if I want to go with a over the shoulder bag or a tactical back pack.

    Thanks..

    I like using tool bags; bucket boss, clc, etc. A decent average size one is around $20

    If it has to be an actual range bag Midway USA makes some that are popular

    Ditto! I love my Midway USA range bag. They have some excellent sales at times throughout the year when the prices are even more reasonable than normal.

    Oh, USA
    I don't use anything that looks like a range bag. Soft side coolers, tackle boxes, anything but a range bag. Camera bags are nice, many have fleece linings and come with velcro edged panels so you can create compartments inside. Of course cameras are only slightly less thief bait than guns.

    Right now I am using a couple of Sears Craftsman tool bags, they came in a two pack, one large and one small, for a very reasonable price. Red and Black, says Craftsman on the side, does not say "Hit my owner on the head and steal a couple thousand dollars of guns and ammo." Ammo on the bottom in a layer, then tools like the stapler etc then a pistol rug, muffs etc. For serious range days I have a big Black and Decker tool box, 20+" long. That holds a rolled up carpet sample for the bench, binos, tools, some cleaning stuff etc.

    I use a Harbor Freight tool bag that completely does not scream RANGE BAG.

    $15, works fine.

    I have a Gorilla box for more serious range days.
     
  8. I have the MidwayUSA $49 special, I think it was $39 when I bought it. I compared it with one at a LGS (Blackhawk I think) that was identical, but was priced $110 or so.

    It's been a good bag.

    I would go with the MidWay USA bags if I could not find something local I liked.

    Rolltide,

    Do you have the competition bag which is the compact one? Looking to hold two to three guns, six mags or more, ammo, ear, eyes, targets and whatever else.

    All the guys I shoot with, and myself, use the Midway bags. Both sizes are handy to have.

    I use the one I got with my NRA membership. It's more of a small duffel bag, but it works.

    I debated between the large and medium and ended up selecting the medium size. It is has plenty of room and the quality is fantastic.
