We carry a number of two and four pistol Bagmaster bags at

If the cheapest price is what you're after, it's hard to compete, price wise, with all of the imported stuff. On the other hand, the Bagmaster folks in St. Louis do a fine job with their bags and stand behind them should they ever need repair.

Good luck,

Well, it becomes painfully obvious that we all have different standards and a good many have never had a real range bag to realize the difference.

I have the 5.11 tactiacl range bag. Love the thing and its indestructible. 2 large front pouches, large side pouch, small side pouch & water bottle, or flash bang sized pouch, and large rear pouch with 10 mag loops. Big inside compartments with moveable, re-moveable divider, lift out carrier, brass bag, and inside side sleeve style pockets you can slip thin stuff in. Great bag. Pricey at $99 but well worth it. Things gonna out last me in sure.

I know I'm late to this discussion but if you haven't already made a purchase, check out the Stanley Fat Max tool bags at a Lowes Home Improvement center. They're large enough to carry everything you have, well-made and reasonably priced.

Whatever you get, I recommend that it be plain without logos/names. Neighbors don't need to know your business?
I've not done this myself, but I've seen folks on some forums recommend Eddie Bauer diaper bags for this purpose.

Well, I've been thinking about a wheelbarrow, with saddle bags and maybe a side car. Then, I'm going to get something for the big stuff...But, dont think it has to be a "real" gun bag...anything that SAFELY and SECURELY holds your gear will work. Pay less for the bag, spend the savings on more "stuff".

I bought Midway's competition range bag. It's a great deal at $30. It's on backorder, but you can still pick one up.

I am currently looking at the same midway bag that LINK posted above...

Does anyone have this bag from midway and if so, how do you like it?

I am looking to spend under $70 max, hopefully under $50 for a decent bag.

Need to carry 4 pistols, a dozen mags, a couple of boxes of bulk .22 ammo, cleaning supplies, rugs, glasses, earplugs and muffs, stapler, targets....the usual stuff..

My wife and I each have one of the Midway bags. We were surprised at just how large they are.

When we go to the range, we each put our electronic ear muffs, 15+ mags (the side pockets have dedicated elastic loop holders), 6 boxes (100 rd ea.) of various ammo, holsters for 4 handguns, AND the 4 handguns themselves. If your not careful, you can definately get it tooooo heavy; sometimes I feel like I need a dolly.

I highly recommend them.

Take a good look at the Glock 4 pistol range bags. Very nice bag for the money. I can load 4 handguns, about 600rds of ammo, 2 pair of electronic muffs, 2 pair of shooting glasses, about 12 magazines and still have room left over. I think we still have about 4 or 5 of these left. Check them out, you won't be dissappointed.

Good luck.

This Uncle Mikes range bag is a bit pricey but definitely worth it.

Sorry....too many bad reviews of the dealer to want to spend money at

The uncle mikes bag looks nice though. I'll probably go with the midway one cause I know how good they are to deal with..

My suggestion is to get a generic looking bag without a brand logo. No need to advertise to neighbors that you have a gun(s). And a plain bag won't attract thieves.
