    I think it's time to retire my 10 year old Orlando Magic duffle with the broken zipper. It's actually held up pretty well, but it only has one compartment and I'm tired of having to search through the bag to find anything and finding the occasional loose .22 round.

    I'm looking for a bag with multiple compartments (not a ridiculous amount) that I can use to store the typical range gear. Eyes, ears, ammo, punches, small cleaning kit, etc.

    Price around $50 give or take, personal experiences always welcome.

    I got a free range bag from s&w when I bought a gun from them, I recommend that route.

    Seriously though I hear ishot makes some good stuff. I tried to order some stuff from them once and I think they're in pretty deep with orders and backed up customer service so I never got it and can't say I was wowed by it, but they have a good reputation.

    I use a craftsman toolbag. They're really sturdy, but since my collection has grown since i purchased it I need to retire it. I pack my range bag like a woman going out of town. Ear muffs, eye protection, (extra of both because my friends are retarded and always forget) reactive targets, ammo in all 5 flavors, extra mags, staple gun, binocs, cleaning shit, etc. So needless to say, i'm looking for a big bag.

    I cannot remember the name of the one that I got, but it was about $50 at a gunshow. I will see if I can find the tag on it.

    Great bag, I would feel fine putting 50-75lbs of stuff in it if I wanted to. Only complaint is the shoulder strap is a little short, but I can fix that.

    Also when I go to the range for an extended period, I have the carry-on sized pelican case (1510) which is great for ammo, as the handles are comfy and it has the rolling option.

    you wouldn't want any markings on a gun bag

    same reason you do not put stickers on your car and then leave valuables in it
