I use a 7 gallon bucket to transport all my gear to and from the range. I would really like to get a departmentalized range bad to use for this task. Any suggestions?

We(Mrs.3-5-7 and I)use two range bags from Bagmaster...six years, ZERO problems...good people to deal with, good website (tho' I don't recall it offhand) AND a "Lifetime" warranty...hard to beat, IMHO!!!....mikey357

I just got my Bagmaster range bag, and I second the motion!

Made in USA, Lifetime Warranty, excellent design....what more could you want?

Oh, and it arrived in only 4 days.

I would get a used range box. I shoot Bullseye and everyone has one, however, when my non-bullseye friends see it they all want one. The best was to carry around guns and equipment.

My $.02:

I went the budget route. I had a small duffle bag (big enough for a pair of shoes and a shirt, I think it was a golf giveaway, though I don’t golf) with a rigid bottom, two side pouches, a front pocket and a padded shoulder strap. It works well for skeet shooting and trips to the pistol range with a soft case inside to hold the pistol. My friend went the same route after being unable to find a decent bag at anything less than astronomical prices. He got a small carry-on style duffle at Walmart for about $10, and added a piece of masonite to reinforce the bottom.

I also have a shooting buddy that uses a small tool bag as a range bag. They are very heavy duty and relatively inexpensive. (Check Home Depot, Lowe’s etc. for these.)

One of these days I may buy a “real” range bag, and the Bagmaster bags look good….

I'd recommend Upland. They also have a lifetime warranty. I ordered numerous bags and accessories from them and they were extremely fast in getting my product to me. Even express mailed an order to me for no addiitonal charge so that I'd get the order prior to going out of town. They will customize their products and have over 10 colors to choose from. I had mag pouches and bags sized to meet my requirements -- added pockets to bags, re-sized mag pouches, ordered custom size zipper bags, etc. and the additional charges (if any) were minimal. All my emails were answered promptly and Dana was great to talk to concerning the changes I wanted to make to my bags. He made suggestions concerning my design requests and was just a joy to work with.

After MUCH deliberation I picked up a 16" tool bag at Lowe's Home Improvement. Works perfectly for me and it cost about a third of what you would pay for a "Designer" bag

I'm liking the Upland bag design as well as Gall's Range pro bag at $60. Thanks for the info guys!

PS I will check out the Lowes idea!

Absolutely agree – get the Dillon. 1-800-223-4570 from memory. Get a different color for each gun/sport.

Love their “stealth” catalogs too. Models with guns, [very tasteful, I promise], drive me NUTS!

I bought a PLANO softside FISHING TACKLE Bag


it has a couple removeable tackle trays , perfect for brushes, swabs and small parts like take down pins and springs.

I carry several 30rd Rifle mags in it, a bandolier of 12 gg 00 Buck, 4 boxes of .45 and all my gun cleaning needs in one handy bag with a shoulder strap. It weighs in around 30 lbs.

it is rugged, it is light, and it was CHEAP! like $12 at Wallmart

Been using a Dillon for several years now. It may not be the largest, but the thing is indestructable, and the price is right.

I have embroidered on range bags from Action Direct. Very heavy duty and padded everywhere. But I am going to check out Bagmaster and Upland. I would like to offer range bags embroidered with the 1911Forum.com logo and also add your username.

For range bags, I don't like the idea of spending much money and go the cheap route too. In addition to the "hardware" store toolbags and the discount store fishing tackle bags, sometimes it's worth checking out the army surplus stores. These days you do have to look around a bit though - some of them charge quite alot of money for some pretty basic stuff.

I'd like to offer a testimonial for ms_embroidery. I bought one of the AR15.com range bags that have the logo embroidered on them by Idette.It is a great bag. 2 padded pockets on the ends with removable padding. A pocket on the front with elastic straps for pistol mags. A removable soft sided tray in the main compartment and another pocket inside the main compartment that ar mags fit in great.It is huge as far as storage space. Her work is more then excellant. I also have one of her t-shirts that she did up as a fund raiser for the Sept 11 relief fund. Again..first class work and a great person to do business with. I encourage you to consider getting her to do some logo work for you. You will be style'n on the range.
