    Range transport: how do YOU carry multiple guns?

    I used to carry in the factory cases within my range bag, but now I find myself taking 3 or 4 guns to the range instead of 1 or 2 and my bag isn't big enough. I thought of getting individual gun pouches, but I wanted to see what other cleaver or traditional options there were. Was hoping I could see some pics of how you all pack your weapons to take a trip to the range. Thanks

    ...and please, no "get a bigger bag" wisecracks! :)

    One bag with two rugs. Any large frame or 'pretty' guns get a rug to themselves, knockabout/carry guns go two to a rug or slipped in a bag pocket.
    I generally take 2 - 4 handguns. The ammo is the real problem, I shoot a lot of ammo...

    Depends on the bag. If it has compartments or the capability of it, you can put a gun in each one. You can holster the guns & separate them with wrapped cardboard (Kind of like a home-made compartment separator).

    Someone on here posted a tool bag they got from lowes for $30 or something and they turned it into a large range bag.

    I only have one gun right now :) so I don't really have any issues like this.

    For handguns I like briefcases - filled with sponge padding. Usually with some ingenuity several guns can be arranged in one case and then when lid shut the sponge pressure keeps them apart. I have four cases which when carefully filled allow me to (potentially) take along a good dozen (or more )

    Rifles usually rifle cases but also I often cheat by placing several on truck back seat - each protected from others by heavy blanket.

    It is possible BTW to use a rifle case which has very tight fitting sponge - and arrange many handguns, adding if necessary extra layers of bubble wrap to ensure they do not touch each other in transit.

    I have a pic somewhere of briefcase stuff at the range - will add if I find it.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    OK this one will do - only two cases but you get the idea. A very enjoyable shoot back in early May when our member Ibex was visiting from Germany.

    You could always cut out a special section for your guns.

    Haha - thx Joe ....... you were hunting while I was LOL.

    kavity - indeed you can cut out - it helps but, downside is you loose the versatility - and so are committed to only certain guns per case.

    for handguns p95 has a good system , for myself its a pickup full in pelican cases and a rug to lay on .

    Jeez, you've probably got more in Pelican cases than I have in guns. Those things aren't cheap!

    I got one of these. I didn't have to pay that much, if you look around you can get them for a lot less. It's a great bag and can carry four or five guns, mags and lots of ammo with no trouble.

    My Bulldog bag has a separator in the main compartment secured with velcro. I don't shoot long guns much anymore but when I carry multiple handguns I have my primary carry gun on my belt, another gun shoved behind the bag divider and anything else is in a gun rug in them main compartment with the ammo, earplugs, etc.

    I only have a few handguns at the moment so don't have a need yet for dedicated cases. My planned Walther collection will likely ride in an aluminum Doskocil (sp?) case - the one with cut away foam that's briefcased size.

    P.S. Roadrunner:
    That's a great bag but more than twice the cost of my Bulldog ... a good bit bigger too though. Looks like it'd be REAL heavy fully loaded - does it come with a Sherpa?

    I use an AWP tool bag from Lowe's. It has two zippered compartments. Inside one of them are a number of small open topped pockets that are perfect for one double-stack mag or two single-stacks. There is enough room for about 4 pistols, 600-800 rounds of ammo, eyes, ears, cleaning kit, etc. I attach my Nalgene water bottle to one of the strap D rings with a carabiner.

    Very strong, inexpensive, and are just the right size for me. Not too big for one or two pistols and just a few accessories, but big enough to handle a larger load.

    I think I paid about $20 on sale.
