    Up until now, I've been using an Allen range bag that I got from Wally World. It's basically just a big green bag with two internal pockets on the sides, and one external pocket on one end. The interior is essentially one big space.

    I was poking around in Home Depot a few weeks ago, and happened to come across the tool belts, bags, and other "totes." I saw a couple of electrician's tool carriers that caught my eye, but I didn't take one home with me.

    I started thinking about having my shooting essentials in one bag, and ammo in another bag.

    Well, yesterday I went ahead and bought this one: http://www.clccustomleathercraft.com/products/detail002.asp?partNo=1528

    I am very happy with it, and I haven't even taken it to the range yet. I love not having all of my contents mix up like cookie dough, and not having to reorganize my range bag every time I get home from a trip (yes, I'm anal). It's also got a nice, comfy shoulder strap, and it also has a parts organizer in a lower compartment. Since I shoot almost exclusively in the boonies, I think this is just perfect for me.

    How can you beat something like this for range use?

    :D Wes :D

    Put it all on wheels and I'm THERE!! One of my problems is that I have peripheral neuropathy AND a bad back. My range bag is often too heavy for me to comfortably carry, especially by the time I get a couple of guns in there, ammo, and all of the other essentials.

    I like bags that close and can be "locked" if need be.

    Open bags = lost stuff

    It was $29 bucks. I am more than pleased with it. There were other brands of Electrician's tool bags, but I liked this bag the best, and it was the cheapest, too. ;)

    I'll have to figure out how to do that... The weight is one of the reasons that I decided to have my shooting stuff and my ammo in two different bags... Just got sick of hoisting 50 pounds.

    I'll be toying with that idea. :)

    Here is my range bag:

    What makes it perfect is that it only cost me $0.39. A couple of months back I bought a Smith and Wesson .500 and then a couple weeks after that a friend sent a web link to a form to receive a free range bag with purchase of any new Smith and Wesson firearm. I know that thier are alot of better bags out there but not many for $0.39 (cost of mailing form).

    Mine is similar to this one except that it's blue & beige. Double zippers on each of the two main compartments that allow me to lock it with mini-padlocks. I have a couple of small camera bags stuck inside it to keep things organized better. Got it at Lowe's, but it can be found cheaper elsewhere.

    I throw all my "generic" stuff that I take to the range every time into a cheap plastic toolbox from Ace Hardware. Like most of it's type, it has a plastic tray that lifts out of the top that holds some of the small stuff. The box I use just fits inside of a typical clay pidgeon box with a pile of targets in the bottom, which I set out to shoot at.
    Then, I put whatever pistols I want to take into one of those foam padded gun cases about the size of a brief case, and I'm off.

    Try this:

    "Put it all on wheels and I'm THERE!!"

    Done it. Go to Home Depot/Sears/Lowes/whatever and get a STANLEY rolling toolbox. Costs about 13/ to 1/2 of what a fancy "tournament" bag costs, rolls, locks and gives you TWO tool trays and a HARD SURFACE to sit, load or work on. I've had mine for 2 years now and would NOT go back to a bag. ;)
