    i recently bought a glock 23 and was looking at rangebags. they all seem the same to me, but then i'm a noob.

    any suggestions on what to look for or names?

    found this on ebay. cheap and looked nice.

    I just went to the local shops until i found something I liked... All nylon, rubber feet, plenty of compartments, fit all my mags, ammo, and glock stock case, and had leather re-inforcements.

    I wouldn't worry about a 'name'. I'd look around in the shops for something that fits what you need it to do and look sturdy.

    I picked this up when i got my 1911 and it's very sturdy but I'm finding that it doesn't quite hold all my gear, especially if you want to carry more than one box of ammo

    My range bag, for my Glock 22:
    [​IMG]

    Left pocket has 20 pairs of disposable ear plugs for friends who don't bring their own -- still plenty of room left:

    Right pocket has my mags. Currently it has six mags in there, but also plent of room for more:

    Front pocket has my range pass, some oil, pen, screwdrivers/punches, etc. Still plenty of room for more:

    Inside the factory Glock case gets it's own compartment. The rear compartment currently has 350 rounds of .40 S&W wth left over space for two pairs of shooters glasses, and still room to go. If I put the glasses in a side pouch, I can fit 1000 rounds of .40 S&W -- definitely enough room for ammo, in this bag:

    The top holds my mag-loader, my reusable earplugs, lense cloth, etc:

    Very pleased for the $40 that I paid for it. And this is why I recommend you check out your local shops -- they'll almost always beat what the manufacturers do.

    I got the green range bag at WalMart for $20. It has plenty of compartments and it stores my two pistols, mags, 400 rounds of ammo, eyes, and ears with some room to spare.

    For handguns I use my old backpack from college. It holds a ton of shit, and even has a zippered pouch on the front with a velcro strap that was MADE for a handgun and two mags. Plus, can you get any more discrete than a plain backpack?

    I have a glock 4 gun bag, picked it up at the bass pro for 35 bucks :cool:

    It holds everything I need plus a few boxes of ammo. Also plenty of space to grow into it.

    Which is definitely a good thing.

    I ran into a guy once who had a blue rifle bag that said Adidas on it. I want one of those :cool:

    Too big. :noes:

    I can hold multiple pistols, over a thousand rounds of ammunition, and still have room leftover for all my other shooting knick knacks.

    Well, that is if I owned any pistols. :mamoru:
