    I've carried four different caliber pistols, 100 to 200 rounds of ammo for each of them, several magazines, two pair of ear muffs, some towels and a bottle of water or two in my Midway bag to the range, and it's never hiccuped.

    I originally bought the Midway competition size bag and ended up buying the compact later. I use the large bag to store all my extra magazines and gear and the compact makes a perfect range bag.

    A wheeled cooler is another alternative to lugging ammo around. Lo-key as well. Who's gonna suspect you've got 2K rounds in there?

    ^ Yeah, but you wouldn't be tacticool, then, would you? Wait, or maybe you would....

    I agree, I actually am looking around at various wheeled tool-carts for that. I'm already toting around a cooler for most classes, and I unfortunately can't fit two in my rather small trunk!

    You could always shoot it with a digital camo....

    ^ ROFL!

    I was thinking more along the lines of tactical matte black.

    Besides, it would be really bad to lose my ammo at the range, when I can't find it because of the camo!

    I have one of the Midway bags, they are a great bag and they are BIG. For me it's really too big and bulky for a quick trip to the range.

    Recently I bought one of these LAPG 3-day backpacks and a couple of these Midway USA pistol cases. Since it's a backpack, it's easy to carry and not bulky, all the usual stuff fits in the front compartments (eyes, ears, tools, towel, small cleaning kit), I can keep some targets in the bigger compartment along with ammo and the pistol cases. On the molle outside I can stick my sunglasses between them, pens, markers and other doo-dads. My first aid kit also attaches to one side and I got a molle water bottle cooler for the other.

    So for $30 for the backpack and 2x $10 for the pistol cases, it's a pretty decent range bag. Unfortunately the backpacks are backordered until July. I actually ordered two several months ago and was lucky that black was in stock at the time, but I'm still waiting on my OD one.

    I'm not normally one for 5.11 gear (this is all I have) but I really like their range bag. It is large but will work well for 300-400 rds, 3-4 guns and a bottle of water.

    I've recently picked up a couple bags, one big and one smaller, from Cabelas. I think they are marketed more for general use but they are excellent for guns/range. Lots of little pockets and storage areas which I like.
    Small one, good for a little ammo and maybe one full size gun, Is called Cabelas carry on gear bag
    Big one could fit quite a bit of gear,lots of pockets, called Cabelas deluxe gear bag
    Both can be found on search on their website.

    The L.A. Police Gear Bail out Bag works pretty good as a range bag as well. It has pockets that work for most of the gear you need to take. Right now they are $20

    Right now, I just use an ole backpack I used for school, but I need to get something new. I really like the backpack style bags, they are a lot easier to carry for me. That 3 day bag looks nice, but it's a little big for my needs. The search continues!

    I gotta tell ya, I went to Midway, and almost bought their range bag, until I got to checkout.

    Shipping doubled the price of the order! I'll pass...

    Ditto, I picked up a Lowes brand bag awhile back for another use. Now using it for carrying stuff to the range.

    Going this way will save you a lot of $$ on so called "range bags"

    True, a little pricey but I got it on sale. BTW, every time you go to the range and pull the trigger you are "burning money"

    But seriously, think about it. I put 2 pistols worth $1500 not counting equipment in the bag and shoot 200 rounds at a cost of at $200 each trip. Makes the price differential in the bag not seem like much.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day
