    Until last Feb., I was using a gym bag for a range bag. It worked fine too and has lots of compartments for other things. Now, I use a range bag from Blackhawk.

    Midways shipping is OUTRAGEOUS. It honestly pisses me off. I refuse to do business with them.

    You have to be buying a quantity of stuff to make it worth while. I never buy one item from them. has to be at least $100 before it seems reasonable.

    It is odd. One magazine will cost $10 to ship. Any entire reloading setup in two giant boxes will cost $12.

    As far as the bags go I am mixed on midway. I have the larger of their range bags. It began to slowly fall apart after 4-6 months. Have lost one of the zipper tabs. The velcro handle is coming off. Stitching in a few other spots coming out. I do not baby the product nor do I abuse it. For the money spent I would not have expected this. With all the ammo in it I would have expects the straps to fall off. Not the opening flap to fall apart.

    Once mine is dead I will try one of their compact versions. May force me to put less in it.

    I know a lot of folks here are against Wally World, but this is what I use:

    Winchester Deluxe Shooters Bag: Hunting : Walmart.com

    I've had it for about 3 years. Still looks like new. I did add a few padded inserts to create compartments (mostly due to my OCD). But it works really well, easy to find, and nearly always in stock. In fact, after my father saw it, he went out and bought one himself.

    I've moved away from soft cases because I started to worry about all the lead/powder/primer I was brining home to the wife/kids. Now I carry hard cases that can be wiped down occasionally, especially after trips to indoor ranges.

    Been pretty happy with a bargain priced clamshell top aluminium tool case from Harbor Freight (item 36871).

    I've always just used a tool bag or old book bag from college. I really need to invest in some hard cases for the rifles.

    First they come for your range bags, then they come for your cleaning supplies, then they come for your targets, then they come for...

    Whenever ordering from Midway or any other internet business I have mulitple items to order to help defray the shipping costs. Of course if you only want to order one item that doesn't help much.

    You have to be at least 18 to order that bag... it must be good!

    Best range bag I own (that would be-several) is a hard-bottomed, wide-mouthed Stanley tool bag I bought on sale at Lowes. (*But, now that I think about it, that description also matches a girl I dated in college. I just don't think her name was Stanley, but if memory serves, she WAS on sale. )

    Hahahhaha! That's hilarious, I didn't even notice that. Maybe its made of hemp and the teenagers have figured out a way to smoke it.

    edit: this is the one I have. Don 't let the name "compact" fool you. It holds plenty of stuff. Easily 2 pistols, several hundred rounds, has 7 or 8 mag loops, end pockets, pockets here and there!

    I love mine, wouldn't sell it back for a profit!

    I agree with this. I can think of many ways how this would work out. Could have saved me $20!
