Need info on a good range bag for my xd
Where did you find the pink one? My lady would love thatwinds-of-change said: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.
Cain thanks for this post, I just ordered this bag on sale $49 in olive drab, I was going to get a tan one but I'll take olive to save $30canebrake said: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;
[*]Don't go for pretty!
[*]Do go for high utility.
[*]Price is not a condition of utility or quality.
[*]Camouflage range bags are a source of endless jokes.
[*]Pink camouflage range bags can result in you dropping shooting as a sport! (Unless you're my daughter!)
[*]Listen to others suggestions or follow them in their mistakes.....or at minimum, the unnecessary waste of cash.
