Looking for suggestions for a small/medium gear bag for trips to the range (can double as a bug/bail out bag).
Want good value (not cheap, but most bang for the buck).
Bag will contain:
- 1-2 pistols
- 3-6 magazines
- 200 - 300 rounds of 9mm ammo
- 1-2 earmuffs
- 1-2 safety glasses
- 1 cleaning rag
- 1-2 speedloaders
- 1 pack Shoot 'N 'C 6" replacement targets
- wallet, phone, keys, camera, foam ear plugs
I don't want a lot of extra space, I'd like it to work well with half of this loadout but still be able to accommodate the maxes above.
I like the 5.11 Tactical stuff, but I think it's a little pricey.
5.11 Tactical - Large Kit Toolbag
might be the right size, but $60 is a little steep.
5.11 Tactical - Bail Out Bag
might be a better choice for the same $60.
Condor - Tactical Response bag
at $30 street price might be the way to go. I will probably lose something over the 5.11, but I can't see getting 2x the utility out of the Bail Out Bag as I would over the Condor. But I could be wrong, as I've never handled either of them.
What other options should I be looking at? I also saw some fishing tackle bags that looked promising, but wasn't sure if they'd be a great fit. I'd think that I'd want something purpose-build for the gun retention and protection from unnecessary wear on the finish of the gun.
