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.


Technical Information: What I look for in a Competition Range Bag
  • Overall Dimensions: 22"L x 15"W x 10"H
  • 9 Total pockets: 7 on main bag - 2 on removable stage bag/ammunition carrier
  • 14 Total magazine pouches 1-1/2"L x 4-1/2"H 8 in rear compartment - 6 in stage bag/ammunition carrier
  • Fired brass carrying bag 5" Diameter 6"H with cinch top, reinforced mesh bottom and chrome plated steel clasps
  • Heavy duty 2"W x 52"L removable carrying strap with shoulder pad and chrome plated steel clasps
  • Full wrap around carrying straps with 5" strap connector/handle with hook and loop closure
  • External ID pocket
  • 2 Non-slip stabilizing pads 2" x 5" on bottom of bag
  • Main compartment 17"L x 10"W x 10"H
  • Includes:
  • 2 removable padded pistol rugs with zippers 8-1/2"H x 12"W fit most large frame semi-auto pistols and revolvers with barrels up to 6"
  • Removable stage bag/ammunition carrier with carrying handles for portability 15"L x 5"W x7-1/2"H
  • Removable stage bag/ammunition carrier features:
  • 2 Padded zippered pockets 7-1/2"H x 15"L
  • 2 Padded moveable hook and loop equiped compartment walls
  • 2 Chrome plated steel D-rings for quick attachment of the carry strap
  • Full wrap-around nylon handles
  • Front compartments - 2 Padded zippered pockets 8"L x 2"W x 8"H
  • Right side compartment - 1 Padded zippered pocket 8"L x 2"W x 8"H with 5 internal elastic accessory holders 1-1/4"W x 2-1/2"H
  • Left side compartments - 1 Padded zippered pocket 4"L x 2"W x 8"H and 1 padded beverage holder with drain hole
  • Rear compartment - 1 Padded zippered pocket 8"L x 2"W x 16"W which features:
  • 8 magazine pouches
  • Internal padded pocket 8"L by 15-1/2"W
  • 12 various sized internal elastic accessory holders designed to hold brushes, jags etc for calibers from 50 down to 17

If you agree with my range bag criteria I can save you a lot of time and money:



MidwayUSA Competition Range Bag - MidwayUSA

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.

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.
