    After having a couple trips to the range missing some items after attempting to transfer them between bags, I just gave up and bought duplicates of various things. I wasted more in time and gas than the dupes cost.

    What might work in its place is using your phone camera to take pics of targets, chrono readings etc.

    Nah, I'm old school as far as writing down data. Transfer it to my excel "Log book" when I get home. So, a little bit new school. I do take pictures of some targets with data on them, but not many, I always use my little log sheet and transfer it when I get home.

    I too use a large range bag that will hold 6 to 7 full size handguns, ammo and everything you need for a session. Its pretty heavy fully loaded and the shoulder strap helps a lot. Its actually a large tool bag made by Custom Leather Craft (CLC) that I purchased years ago specifically for a range bag.

    They make good stuff. I have one of their tool bags in my FJ, which is where it rides.

    I keep those things and also rule books (USPSA, ICORE SCSA, IDPA) anything paper or cardboard I put into a zip lock bag in the event it is raining that stuff doesn't get wet even if the range bag gets soaked. In addition to the regular shooting accessories we all have, I have a small firearms screwdriver set, some oil, a pistol cleaning rod and a rifle cleaning rod and a pistol squib rod. I don't take cleaning solvent with me but I do take a few Q-Tips and a cleaning brush or two and few patches and small bronze brush. Batteries for all of my dot sights, FA sticks and a wide variety of small parts and screws for my revolvers and autoloaders. I put each of my handguns in it's own dedicated rag and the magazines in a dedicated magazine case. Grab the approprate one when I leave home. I usually don't put ammo in my range bag because there usually isn't enough room and it's heavy anyway. My paper targets when I use them go in a plastic Plano ammo can along with a staple gun and duct tape and a laser bore sight tool. I carry way too much stuff with me, but I don't have the fortitude to travel light either. I'm the guy that at a match someone needs a part or battery they come right directly to me.
