Looking for a range bag.

Hi all. Happy Easter! Im looking for a range bag to hold my mossberg 590a1 and some ammo. It can even be a tool bag. Sending this from my work cell so excuse the spelling please. Cant really search google either. Price range 60. Thanks

You won't find a range bag to hold your Mossberg and accessories.
Here's what I would do (and have).
Buy the range bag from Midway.
I have the large and it is great. For less stuff, the medium is nice too.
The large is often on sale for $39. It cannot be beat.
Then carry the shotgun in a soft guitar case.
I like the "Coffin Case" for the humor factor, but any "gig bag" will work.
I got mine on E-Bay cheap.
No one will think you're carrying a shotgun.

Also look at photographer bags. Come in many sizes and have movable partitions inside to configure it the way you want. For the Mossberg just buy a case from Walmart.

Even though this bag is mostly for rifles (but of course can fit shotguns well), I have found it to be a beyond excellent bag for every one of my range needs. Very durable.

I'm also a huge fan of the Large range bag from Midway. The middle of it even comes out to make a second, smaller compartment if need be (which is how mine is right now).

Will check out the midway one.


All other suggestions welcome

Check out the Winchester tactical rifle case Sportsman guide has for 40 bucks. It will hold a short shotgun, at least 2 handguns and a pile of ammo/accessories.

Home Depot....Husky brand.
I got 2 of them.Many pockets,hard bottom soft sided.
I have one that zips on top for rifle and shotgun mags and ammo.
And 1 "open top"for pistol mags and ammo cleaning stuff.

Best value I have seen in the army surplus mechanics bag. Got one at a gun show for 10.00 and seems to be near bottomless for all I can fit in it.

I'n not sure if the OP is looking for a rifle/shotgun case or a range bag, or both.

But, I've been very happy with the Winchester and Wolf rifle cases and shooters bags I've got from Sportsman's Guide, sure you can pay more, but if I crammed any more stuff into mine they'd be too heavy to get in and out of the car. They have held up very well for our weekly range trips. They seem to be the same design, but with different logos.

I particularly like the double rifle case (~$30) holds my Saiga 12 and a pump shotgun or an AK and an AR.

Problem with most range bags I bought or borrowed was their flimsy construction. Need to have a canvas bag but also heavy duty straps for carrying the weight.

The Midway bag is nice; strap pad's a little light.

If you sign up for the email sales at Tommy's Gun Packs they'll often (often!) send offers for ~50% off this and that. American made beefiness!

Natchez is blowing out all the Eagle brand textile stuff; might be worth a look.

A standard soft-sided gun case can be had at any gun show for about $10. A decent range bag ( make the the carry straps go all the way around the bag and are sewn well) can typically be found for about 35-40, but it will last you decades.

My shotgun range bag gets Used 3-4 times per week. It even has a fold out cleaning pad in one side. It was about $80 20 years ago and is still in perfect shape. If this is to be used a LOT, buy something of quality once - whether it is labeled as a range bag or tool bad or whatever. Bags designed for gun gear typically have certain features regular tool bags do not. If you're not happy with what you see, look at canvas gear bags that horse folks use. I have one duffel bag size made out of canvas I use as a travel bag
