Range bags
 
Need info on a good range bag for my xd

canebrake 06-30-2012 11:05 AM

I have searched high and low for that perfect range bag and wish I had all the cash I've spent in this pursuit!

I've tried them all from my leather Colt bag to the ballistic nylon Blackhawk stuff.

Here's what I found;
  1. Don't go for pretty!
  2. Do go for high utility.
  3. Price is not a condition of utility or quality.
  4. Camouflage range bags are a source of endless jokes.
  5. Pink camouflage range bags can result in you dropping shooting as a sport! (Unless you're my daughter!)
  6. Listen to others suggestions or follow them in their mistakes.....or at minimum, the unnecessary waste of cash.

^^^ what he said there. Although he did forget to mention the cup holder.

Canebrake is a wealth of knowledge!! My hats off, cane! I just live and learn (and carry two range bags cos the first was too small!!) and a toolbox for my tools and spare parts. One bag is red and black and the other is black, both off brand. My wife has a pink range bag as well. It's like going on a week long vacation when we go shooting. We need a dolly to carry all our crap, it seems. Oh, and two .50 cal ammo cans full of .45ACP, .380ACP, .308 and 12 gauge shells!!!

I have a pink camo range bag. What's wrong with that, Cane? I also have another range bag that is suddenly too small as I've acquired more guns. And Yayamamasami, I have just started using a cart/dolly to carry my 'stuff' to the range. I'm "older" and the bags are too darned heavy for me.

Where did you find the pink one? My lady would love that

Visits your local office supply store for a laptop bag. The kind with 2 wheels and a pull up handle. All sorts of compartments, zippers, and yes, a cup holder. You can carry it or pull it, and price is usually less than a range bag.

Advantage- it does not LOOK like a range bag. Just be sure you do not grab it by mistake on your way to the airport.
