A word of warning about "inexpensive" range bags. I have seen a few of them fail at our range. Broken zippers, failed stitching and fractured metal hardware on the carry straps are among the types of things that can go wrong. I remember one incident very distinctly when a fella's carry strap "pot metal" snap shackle fractured and the bag and its contents crashed into the concrete. I recommend spending a little more and getting something that you can depend on.

I bought this same one after a recommendation from a co-worker. It's a great bag. I lived for years with miscellaneous gym bags and tool bags. Most have broke or fell apart due to the weight being carried. No issues with this one , going on the second year of use.

+1 for this bag. Put it on your wish list and wait for the email notification when it goes on sale + free shipping. Only downside right now is that it's only available in black. I guess not really a downside if you want a black one.

The other version of this bag https://www.midwayusa.com/product/10...tion-range-bag is not a good value compared to the other, not sure why they even offer it.

My choice. Sturdy construction, padded, plenty of room, and at an affordable price via Amazon.

Suggest tan or any color lighter than black as it becomes difficult to find objects rolling around in a black bag. My duties as a Firearms Instructor required a huge range bag packed with equipment. No more! I have since downsized and compartmentalized my gear to be discipline specific (pistol, rifle, rimfire, shotgun) using a modest sized "basics" bag and taking only what I need for any specific range session. I use several of the Midway Tactical Pistol Cases as dedicated cases to further compartmentalize those frequently used pistols and organize my mags.

I agree on both the desirablilty of a light colored bag and also the advantages of discipline specific bags. Oversized bags are a real pain.

I would like to know why the smaller of the two range bags from Midway is not a good value. The large bag is much larger than I need and if fully packed with ammo and supplies would be pretty heavy. I usually only take 2-3 handguns to the range and 2-4 boxes of ammo along with my eye and ear protection. The smaller $59.99 bag should meet my needs and got good reviews except for one bad review. Any info. on the smaller Midway bag would be appreciated. Thanks

Dusty, I don't have either bag but I suspect that some folks don't want to have all the interior containers - they simply want a larger internal volume to carry gear. Other folks do want these accessories so it is of value to them.

I personally favor a smaller overall bag size with no internal accessories but that just me.

Heck when I go to the range the large bag doesn't seem big enough sometimes
