Default Time for a new range bag!

My range bag is probably 30 years old. Been a good bag but interior is starting to degrade getting black stuff all over the contents. I carry about everything needed for a trip to the range in that bag. Tools, cleaning and lube stuff. Mags, mag loaders, ear muffs and a couple handguns in rugs in a side pouch. In general a fairly large bag. Most ammo I carry in a seperate bag. Lots of choices out there. Old bag no longer made. What are you folks using and recommend?

I have a small range bag for I use for ammo and have handled both larger range bags and gun bags made by Tactical Tailor. Really stout and well made, probably one of the few options out there that will last that long again. Veteran owned, made in the US, highly recommended.

I use the large GPS bag shown in the link below. It comes with it's own ammo tote and has plenty of room for storage.


There are a few detailed photos of the bag in the following thread...

Midway has several options on their site, but I do have one or more of the two shown below. The larger one has lots of space, and comes with two pistol rugs and a brass bag. However, it is excessively bulky and heavy depending how much ammo is added. The smaller one is better for actual range use in my opinion.
These occasionally go on sale, so depending on your urgency to replace, you might want to hold out for a sale.

I bought one of these inexpensive Cabelas gear bag years ago and it's still going strong. On the small side, but easily has enough room for 4x pairs of ear pro and glasses, mags and random tools. I should buy another just for ammo.

A box! It's got some "dividers" that were an insert from another box and a smaller box that keeps tools and miscellaneous small items from roaming off. I put that box inside a slightly bigger box and use the space between them for holding targets. It's free (I'm cheap!) and works very well for my uses. The only thing I can't fit into it is a long gun.

12" canvas toolbag from Harbor Freight carries all the tools I need for most any field-level repair of about any gun I've needed to disassemble, adjust, or repair so far.


For toting handguns & ammo, I just reach in the hall closet & grab whatever backpack, shopping bag, or bookbag looks like the right size.

I have been using a NATO brand range bag for a few years and it has held up very well with plenty of room.

I’m a bit of a minimalist, but I have this and it’s well made and suits my needs nicely!!
