    How do you transport multiple guns to the range?

    Two of the handguns I have do not have cases. One came in a cardboard box in cosmoline and a plastic bag and my Glock 17 Timberwolf came in parts and now that is is assembled, I have no case for it.

    So, how do you transport/protect multiple guns you are taking to the range? Also, what do you suggest for my "orphans" which did not come with any suitable transportation container?

    Nylon/fabric weapons bag?
    Pelican type hard case?
    Wedge them in my range bag?
    Aluminum brief case style padded case?
    Loose in the cardboard shipping box (just kidding)?

    Other ways???

    The rifles each have their own bag, and all of my handguns came with a case, but I'll just stick them in their holster and put them in my range bag. If you don't want to do that, there are nylon pistol bags that would work for your purposes.

    holster on my hip and holster inside my range bag
    long guns in their own bags or boxes

    If you are not carrying, I'd reccomend a hard plastic foam lined case, or protected in your range bag seperated from stuff knocking into them.

    I use a Maxpedition range bag when shooting indoors. I normally only take 5 or 6 handguns to the indoor range, seldom a rifle. I use an outdoor range for long guns and they are carried in soft sided rifle cases. All ranges that i frequent inspect your weapons and ammo prior to allowing you on the firing line.

    I don't have a case for my shotgun or rifle. I just open the action with mag removed and go in.....YMMV, most ranges don't care around here.

    My range won't let you bring your EDC loaded in a holster, so I have fabric range bags. Each carries 2 guns plus ammo and eyes/ears. I seldom take more than 4 guns to the range. Only one rifle has a carry case, the AR-15 is in a plastic case. Other long guns are just carried in the trunk. All long guns except the AR-15 are more than 50 years old and have endured lots of "trunk time".

    Gun rugs for my pistols (pistol bag), and soft cases for rifles.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I have 2 of these. Amazon.com: GunMate Range Bag with Removable Hook and Loop Dividers: Sports & Outdoors

    One for 2 9mm pistols and ammo and ear/eye protection, and one for the .22 and .380. I seldom take more than 4 handguns to the range.

    My weapons ride to the range in a hard sided case that holds 4 of them nicely. Rest goes in a range bag. I keep my treasures in a chest.

    We put ours in our cases (hard/OEM for most of the pistols, soft/aftermarket for the long guns), and they get transported to our "range" (about a mile up a four-wheel-drive trail, a great spot facing a gully), in the back of the Jeep.

    I was given a gift of a personal insulated bag. I leave my pistol in its metal locked case (Though in Texas you can have a concealed handgun in your car, and not have a CHL) It also has room for Boxed ammo.a bottle of water a the pockets that hold the Ice packs are great for extra magazines.
