    Range bag help?

    I am looking at range bags by Dillon, CED, & Shooters Connection. Does anyone have any hands on experience with these bags? A direct comparasion would really be appreciated if anyone has used more than one of them.

    I looked all over for mine...not one of your picks.
    Here's what I take to the range...

    Hit shooter's bag, then Pro-shooter's Bag (medium)...just around a C-note...works well for me.

    I bought my Dillon about 15 years ago. It does everything I want it to do. Haven't tried any of the others.

    I won one on sigforum in a karma. It's a MidwayUSA bag. I really like it. Lots of pockets, mag holders, pistol bags, and other little doohickeys. Seems pretty durable too.

    In other news...Firefox recognizes doohickey as a word with the spellchecker.

    +1 on the Midway USA bag, I got one and haven't yet been able to think of anything that it should have and doesn't.

    MidwayUSA - MidwayUSA Competition Range Bag PVC Coated Polyester Black

    It's on sale, $20 off, and has over 200+ reviews, almost all of which are 5/5 stars.

    I never really understood the high dollar range bags. Been using in the family the same walmart special small duffel for 20 years.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Yea, the Midway bag is great, it is practically identical to the 5.11 bag of the same size.

    Said it before and I'll say it again -- I can see no reason to spend more than the cost of the Midway Range Bag. I now have two of these bags, my daughter has one and my shooting buddy has one. I can't imagine what you'd have to load in them to tear them apart and they have pockets and compartments for everything. The old saying "you get what you pay for" definitely does not apply in this case as you get much more than you pay for (in comparison to other bags I've seen). This bag is a great buy at the normal price of 59.99 but the sale price of 39.99 is an outstanding buy.

    I use a back pack from Wal-mart. It's discreet, making it easier to not draw attention from my neighbors or people with bad intentions. Soft guitar cases are good for the days when you want to practice with the EBR.

    I would go with the Midway Range Bag as well..I've got one and love it. More than meets my needs. JMHO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I looked at gun shows. I did all the internet exploring and bought what I believe to be the best bag for the money. Midway. About 1/2 to 1/4 of other similar bags. Have had it a couple of years now and have no complaints.

    Not the Midway bag but available for cheap from Midway:
    MidwayUSA - GunMate Range Bag Nylon Black

    I've been using this one with good results. It holds A LOT of stuff. I can actually get 4 pistols (small), a bunch of mags, ammo, 2 sets of ears/eyes, some tools/cleaning stuff, etc. in there just fine.
