I have a Blackhawk Sportster also from Cabela's that is real nice. Has lined and lockable side pockets for firearm transport. You can get two firearms in each side. Ample storage for targets. Center has dividers for ammo, muffs and other gear.

Look at these....

Try MidwayUSA.com. They have a couple of their store brand bags and they are very good. I have several that are used for shooting and even weekend trip bags! They are versatile and hold up very well. If you shop the sales they have, they go for as little as $40 (retail about $80).

Look on MidwayUSA. When they run their branded bags on sale it is hard to beat. I have one and have no complaints.

I have an older version of this one.

I bought it on sale about five years ago, and it's still holding up well. Keep in mind that I often go to an outdoor range that is about a 30 minute drive for me. It's out in the middle of nowhere. So, I'll have some light tools and things I normally would not bring to an indoor range that's closer to me. The bigger bag just makes it easier to carry everything all in one.

Kinda along the same lines. I carry a high Sierra backpack. I do have the NRA cammo bag I got with my renewal but prefer to keep the ďIím carrying several gunsĒ look to a minimum. The backpack has several dividers and Iíve carried as many as 6 pistols, ammo, eyes & ears and cleaning kit in it. Works great.

I have a Maxpedition Mongo Versipack, but I use it as a laptop bag, not a range bag. It is good quality.

Yeah, that Cabela bag looks like a good deal, so I ordered one.

That's what I use. Eyes in one side pocket and ears in the other. Two front zipper pockets hold first aid kit, tool, gun instruction booklets, 3x5 cards (tiny targets) and a marker, pocket knife, pen. Inside holds up to three pistols, each in their own case, ammo, and 8 1/2 x 11" targets.

+1 on the Midway Range Bags.
I've used their large model for a few years. Reasonably priced, good quality.
FWIW - if you fill it up with guns and/or ammo, it's simply too heavy.
So, if it's a big range day, I split up guns and ammo between that and 1 -2 canvas boat bags.

Seems that a 'range bag' costs way more than a tool bag of comparable size.
This. They only cost about $20-25 and there aren't any firearm related logos on the bag so it's just another nondescript bag. I've been using them for range bags for decades.

Picked one of these up about 4 years ago. lots of room inside for 2 30 cal size ammo cans and a couple of 2 gun hand gun cases with plenty of room to spare. and the wheels are a bonus. I also have one of the Cabela bags for quick trips with a single gun range day. https://www.harborfreight.com/tool-s...bag-61925.html
