Just got a new range bag from Midway. The thing is very well made and is huge. Comes with 2 gun rugs and more storage space than I currently need. It's their 'Competition' model. Best of all is the price: 30.00

I have one from Gander Mnt that's 14.00, the gun rugs in it are just flat squares that fold in half with some velcro. I wish I could see the Midway one better as the GM one really only works to carry ammo in.

I agree on the Gander Mountain bag...and that is what I use it for...ammo carrier.

If you can post a pic of the Midway bag that would be fantastic

Thanks for the tip. Just ordered one. Have been looking for a new bag, but didn't want to spend 70-80 bucks like a lot of them are.

I have the "Shooters Ridge Magnum Shooting Range Bag" which I also bought from Midway. I'm really happy with this product ... lots of space and pouches and the shoulder strap is really comfortable.

I'll post pictures later today. Actual dimensions are 22" long, 15" wide, 10" deep. The two gun rugs are zippered fully enclosed and padded. The rugs are 9" x 13". The entire bag is well padded. There's a Midway logo on the lower right corner of the bag, but it's low-key and doesn't really detract from the overall appearance of the bag.
If there's anything wrong with the bag, some folks might say it's too big. I always take two handguns to the range though, plus 250 to 300 rds of ammo, earmuffs, eye protection, and other stuff too, so it's perfect for me. You could use the rugs that come with the bag and still have room for another firearm or two.
The price is 30.00, but don't forget you'll have to pay shipping. Mine was 40.00 delivered by UPS Ground. And if you live in Missouri, you'll probably have to pay sales tax too.
I bought a really nice I-Shot range bag 3 years ago. It's served me well and it's been an outstanding range bag, but I paid about 75.00 for it and it is now literally coming apart at the seams. I think the Midway is an outstanding bag. I'd say it stacks up favorably against most range bags out there today, and the price is certainly reasonable.

I got 2 of the Midway bags a while back for me and my wife. Well made, and roomy. Lotsa loops for mags all through it. Even came with a little ventilated drawstring bag for carrying used brass.

Here's a link to the picture and description (http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=259680)

I just bought an ADC Sports bag from Gander Mountain similar to the one from Midway, except it has additional pods on each end for two handguns. My WalMart bag was getting too small.

$44.00.

It's a regular promo item for them. I'm sure it'll go back on sale for $30 before long.

I just ordered on of these the other day, the one ezy and doggy are talking about. Can't wait to get it. I saw a post on another forum about it last month, when the sale started, I think...

I heard about someone that said he had lined one up against a very similiar one that some companies sell for much more, like $80-$100 and said it was almost identical.

IIRC they were talking about one of the 5.11 Tactical bags.

I just don't know - been carrying all my range stuff in an old 5 gal. bucket for a long time. If I bought one of them fancy-pants range bags, I'd feel like I needed to wear a tie to go shoot'n.

lol obxned

I'm on the other end, I already feel like I should wear a tie w/ my current range bag, I'm trying to tone it down a little by getting an actual range bag.

See, when I bought my first gun not too long ago, the only practical thing I had to put all the gun stuff, extra mags, ammo, and eyes/ears for two people, was an old soft leather briefcase. The only reason I stopped using the briefcase was because the shoulder strap broke (ring ripped off the bag itself) and it was too heavy to carry my laptop and work stuff anymore, but other than that, it's a nice looking briefcase w/ extra compartments, so it's worked out well for just one gun.

The main reason I wanted to take advantage of this deal was for more room for more pistols and mags, but it did feel funny sometimes going to the range w/ such a nice briefcase in tow...

I dunno. How useful is a range bag for carrying tools, cleaning stuff and ammo? Not very.

Extremely.

I picked up some small boxes from the fishing aisle at K-Mart to organize all my cleaning goodies and tools. They have dividers and fit into the pockets of the range bag nice and snug. Dunno if I've ever been this organized before... about anything.

I got just that bag about two years ago ezpickns, and I love it.
Course, now I have a pistol supplies bag (that Midway bag), a pistol bag (that carries two pistols and ammo--just the thing for toten around for IDPA), a rifle bag (magazines and general supplies), a black powder bag, a git bag, a case for my sighting glass, plus rifle cases and whatnot.
:what:
Fortunately, I only shoot rifles OR pistols, not both on the same day. Actually, I couldn't shoot both, there isn't enough room in the cab of my little pickem-up truck to fit everything.

keep us apprised on the long-term durability of this bag. my biggest concern with "no-name" stuff is whether it will last. i'll pay for quality no matter the cost. of course, lots of expensive bags turn out to be crap...

I ordered my Midway range bag on the 30th and it arrived today. For the price I wish I'd ordered several for Christmas presents. Nice looking bags and appear to be pretty stout.

Got mine the other day. Good deal for the money. Larger than I expected. Well thought out design. Seems as sturdy as bags selling for 2x the price at a local dealer.
