I use a small East German military surplus bag I got from CTD. I made a bulk purchase of them with some family and friends. I bought 10 of them for my family of four so we could use them as 72 hour kit bags and then a couple extras. They are real durable and CHEAP.

They are not too big though. I really only use them for mags, ammo, eyes and ears, stapler, targets, tape & Gerber multitool. The guns have a different case for each long gun and a double decker case for the pistols.

I use one of several bags depending on what I'm doing. The one constant is my Klein Tools bag that carries a rest, sandbags, target pasters, staplers and earmuffs. That bag always gets loaded in the truck. I picked it up at a garage sale for $5.00 and it's built like a tank.

I have several of the Harbor Freight 11" tool bags. These things are great for carrying ammo, and sometimes if I'm going to shoot two or more calibers, I'll use a different bag for each caliber. A couple of boxes of ammo, a handgun, and whatever mags I might be using goes into each bag, separated by caliber. At about $7.00 each, these things are fairly durable, made of canvas, and very affordable. They're normally available at my local Harbor Freight, which means that I don't have to wait for shipping.

Another user of various small canvas tool bags, with different bags for different guns or calibers. Works well from my point of view.
Yard sale purchases, a few Craftsman bags, some from the Auto Parts store.
The uncomfortable question common to all who have had revolutionary changes imposed on them: are we now to accept what was done to us just because it was done?

No bag. For modern guns a tackle box.
For traditional muzzle loading a large handmade box of cedar. If it gets any heavier I'm going to add wheels and a V-8 engine.

I have one of the Midway large competition bags referenced earlier.

It can definitely be loaded down to the point where it's a PITA .... err back ... to carry.

I bought three of these "cheap" bags from CTD two years ago- and none of them have had a failure of any kind. I recommend them highly.

Its on the pricy side. But have been using 2 of the large ones for near 18 years. Wore a hole in one bag and it was replaced free of charge.
