Take a look at Dan's knives, if you are looking for a carbon steel working knife, look no further!

If pretty, factory production, cookie-cutter, shiny knives are your style, don't bother.

Dan is one of those "once in a life-time", stumble upon artisans you will NEVER forget phone number! This is a vendor. Buy with confidence. I'll back this guy, he delivers!

I guess my question is why would you care what someone else thinks about you having a knife in your gun bag

Much better to be over prepared than under prepared!

Less that than if someone had a better alternative.... I actually think I may have skipped over the idea of a range bag I guess I assumed my rifle case was the same as a range bag I think it's clicking that I should possibly have a second bag oops I guess that's a noob move

Oh, for sure!! You definitely need a range bag. Unless you're one of those lucky ones that can just shoot straight from the trunk or bed of your car/truck.

You need something to carry:
Safety Glasses
Hearing pro
ammo
parts
tools
magazines (the reading kind AND the bullet holding kind, never know what kind of wait you may have for whatever reason. You could end up on the can somewhere, you just never know.)
snacks
drinks
gloves
maybe an extra pair of socks (not being sarcastic, you really just NEVER KNOW)
and cleaning gear, including rags and lube, unless you plan ahead to go straight home and clean after shooting. Amazingly, cleaning gear is one of the most essential items that I wouldn't say is a "must have" for an informal range session. Although, if you plan on dumping a lot of ammo, or are going into a competition, you really, REALLY, want some cleaning gear in your bag.

I'm sure there's a lot of variation, but this is what I keep in mine.

still made in the USA! i just looked at mine that i bought last year to check and see if it was, and it is still made here.

I appreciate the help i really do. I do(95% of the time) go straight home and break down and clean the guns but, besides pistols and a 10/22, I don't own any magazine fed guns my normal trip includes the 7mm and the savage 338 so cleaning is a breeze. Do you have any recommendations for the tool situation? Again sorry I sound so new but id rather ask now then figure it out the hard way you know

Yep, a range back is extremely handy. I use a backpack (the same kind you probably used in the Marines trip). It's extremely durable, and is big enough to carry all my stuff.
