Pardon me for "dumb" question...
After reading a thread on Women & Guns forum reviewing range bags women like ... (I am a woman, although that doesn't really matter to my question) I bought this rangebag, and it came the other day

The bag appears well made for the money, and certainly better than what I was finding locally.
I have always been a backyard shooter, but am considering taking some shooting lessons, and getting a range membership to practice more, especially in winter. This is why I bought the range bag.
I have my carry gun which is a S&W 649 j frame, my older "nightstand" gun, a S&W model 66, and may purchase a 22 revolver so I can throw some less expensive rounds down range.
Question is - what do I need to carry in the bag other than guns and ammo... with revolvers you really don't need many other items do you? Oh, ear muffs, eye protection, targets, tape or stapler - that's about all I can come up with?
The main question is this. My blue plastic boxes my pistols came in won't quite fit in the range bag unless they go in diagonally - then two of them take up almost the entire case. Something tells me this is not the way the bag is supposed to be used. Is there some other way I am supposed to carry the weapons in the bag other than the manufacturer's box? The range I want to go to won't allow you to unholster a CCW gun on range... if you want to shoot it, it has to come into the range in a box or bag, not loaded on your person.
Do I need to purchase some sort of soft side case for them to carry them inside the range bag? Just wrapping in a piece of bath towel doesn't seem the thing to do...
