    This appears to be the very same bail out bag on sale over at LA Police Gear. It is about the same price and looks just likeit. I love minemine I think you will too.

    I got one from LA Police Gear. for 19.99 on a closeout,its what I use for a pistol case in my truck. It works very well for taking stuff to the range in it.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I got that same LAPG bag on clearance too. It makes a perfect range bag. I think they got a little confused though - they sent me two by mistake. but I'm not complaining. The second one's going in my truck as a medical supply bag.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    +1 for CountyComm! I love their battery holders for CR123's and AA's. And I have one of their cell phone cases for my Motorola Razor, as well a few other of their essentials.

    Well, it showed up yesterday and...I LIKE IT! I think the bag needs to be a good 2-3" wider and longer, but for most purposes this makes a pretty good fast go bag. So far I managed to fit comfortably:

    • 200' paracord
    • 1 Colt 1911 and drop-leg holster
    • 4 spare loaded 1911 magazines
    • 1 extra 50rnds .45acp(not including the already loaded spare mags)
    • 1 Walther P22, holster, and suppressor
    • 4 spare loaded walther .22lr magazines
    • 1 extra 300rnds .22lr(not including the already loaded spare mags)
    • 1 miniature pistol cleaning kit
    • 1 bottle of CLP Breakfree
    • 1 Gerber LMFII ASEK knife/scabbard/leg straps
    • 1 Swiss Tool Rescue Multitool (similar to Leatherman...but better)
    • 1 compass
    • 3 MRE's
    • 3 Powerbars
    • 1 MSR mini mess kit(steel version)
    • 1 MSR miniworks water purifier with 1 gal. platypus bag
    • 1 InovaX5 flashlight
    • 1 windproof lighter
    • 1 Swedish Firesteel set
    • 1 set dry tinder
    • 1 miniature sewing set
    • 2 rolls of gauze
    • 1 set of butterfly bandages
    • 2 sets of latex gloves
    • 1 Blackhawk Instructors Gun belt
    • 1 2 way radio
    • 1 handwarmer set with extra fuel sticks
    • 1 set of thin wool gloves
    • 1 rolled up camo head garb
    • 1 rolled up portable hammock
    • ...2 partridges and the pear tree


    and yes...I still have room. The bag itself is pretty heavy duty. It's a small bag, but it was very well laid out. All seams/stitching seems to be either double or triple stitched. The only thing I don't like is the shoulder strap. The main carry handles are really heavy duty, but the shoulder strap just feels a little weak/flimsy to me to go with this heavy duty bag.

    I'll try to snap a pic later this evening with it fully loaded.

    We need pictures of your BOB
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Nice go-list. I was surprised at how much stuff mine holds too.

    Only thing I would suggest would be some sealed water pouches and a few more medical supplies, specifically GSW related. Quik-clot sponges are small and light, but they can save your butt.

    Yeah, I was debating on the medical stuff...and still am, because I have two separate smaller medical kits I keep in my car too. One behind the drivers seat and one in the trunk next to the go bag.

    I have that bag too and haven't used it yet. I thought it might be too small for a lot of gear... you clearly showed it is not!

    But you forgot one thing... a really "tacticool" patch for the velcro on the front pocket like mine!

    I've always looked at one and thought it would serve well as a range bag. Now that they are $29, I think I'll find out.
