    Range Bag Recommendations: For the range and IDPA

    Looking for something inexpensive. Nothing fancy.

    I will be using it for general range use, but I would really like something that works well with IDPA matches. That means; lots of magazine loops and storage for all the essentials.

    Thank you.

    Ridge Runner,
    If you are going to shoot a bunch, get the tournament bag from shooter's connection. It's not cheap, but it's not cheaply made. I've had a bunch of range bags. The shooter's connection is the last one I'll need to buy. http://www.shootersconnection.com

    I use a Stanley Tools wheeled tool bag. It as a hard floor and a pull-up handle. Even loaded down with ammo it rolls on gravel.
    It also has elastic loops all the way around on the inside to hold magazines.

    I know you said "inexpensive", but I totally recommend iShot's range bags; I own one of their Pro Shooter bags. I've used and abused (by waaaay overstuffing it) it and it's holding up superbly.

    I use the 5.11 range bag Glockguy mentioned. Love it. 8 mag loops in one side pocket. Best $90 I've spent. Well ... that might be overstating things, but it's a great bag!

    I found a great "cheap" tool bag at Lowes that works perfect. Has two large compartment with zippers and asst outer pockets. Being a "tool bag" it is very strongly made with extra strength handles and materials.

    At least half the cost of a "real" range bag and is much better built than most "real" ones I have seen.

    I'll second the iShot Pro Shooter bag. I've stuffed as many as 300 12GA shotgun shells in mine. I think I got mine for about $40 from Gunner's Alley a couple years ago.

    i hope i don't sound too weird...

    i use a old laptop case-

    its got lots of little pockets for extra drives (put mags in), and the compartment for the laptop contains a pistol in a case, and a really big mouse pad (to set the pistol down on - or clean on), and the non-'puter compartment contains the cleaning materials. i carry ammo in a plastic bag, which gets tossed, along with the boxes at the range or any convenient trash can.

    this way, i'm not advertising that i have a pistol, or anything related, and i don't feel too weird walking around with the bag when i don't want to leave it in the car.

    don't know if its IDPA compliant tho...

    Ben, I use a similar tool bag, but mine is a little bigger and has pockets on the outside, a Prosource from a local dollar store (Biglots)
    around the $15.00 range and has plenty of room.

    clean out a corner of your closet. You're going to need it.
    We've all got a whole bunch. Finding the right bag is a neverending search.
