Most indoor range shooting is done with handguns, 9mm & .22LR. Handguns are carried in a large 2 layer hard case, 3 bottom level, 2 in top, 1 carried concealed.

I use a repurposed $5 thrift store camera bag for ammo, ears, eyes and misc. I usually carry 1 or 2 200/250 rnd boxes of 9mm and a 500 box of .22LR.
an older pic but gives a visual

Rifles are also each hard cased but rarely brought.

I use the Maxpedition Mongo Versipack. It's not cheap, but it's very durable and all the pockets work perfect for my range gear. Targets, notepad and pen, cleaning supplies, tent stakes for the target stands, stapler, rifle bipod, hearing and eye protection along with 1st aid and rain gear.

I use a Stanley FatMax tool bag.
Gobs of pockets and slots.

Seems that a 'range bag' costs way more than a tool bag of comparable size.

I'm w/ SaftyJoe except mine isn't a Maxpedition. I've had it for years and love it compared to rectangle range bags. Hangs nice to the body. This bag carries anything and everything I need for a range trip. The different pockets make organizing and getting to things super simple. I love it. When I ran across it was called some type of "messenger bag" that I turned into a "range bag".

Just looked and no name on it, no tags, nothing. It's taken a beating over the years though and no wear on it at all.

Sorry, no photo. But I use an old leather bag that had served me well for years when I worked in an office setting.

I have two from Midway USA of different sizes. You can find plenty of pictures of them on their website. I have used them for years, they are functional if not fancy, and have held up well.

I've had good success with several of the Husky bags at Home Depot. Its Not approved by the Snobs at the range, But they are tough, affordable, highly functional and thats All that matters to me.

I have been using this Midway range bag for about years. It is well built and holds a lot of stuff. Plenty room for two guns and 200 rounds of ammo each, plus ear muffs, stapler, cleaning supplies, and magazines.

It is great if you want to take a couple or three pistols to the range. It might be too much if you only have one pistol to shoot.

I also have their AR 15 version. Both are great bags.

I've been using a Cabelas catch all gear bag until I could find something better. https://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabe...2.uts?slotId=0

Now I see no reason for something bigger or "better". I picked up a couple more over Christmas for $10.

Midway USA has great products.

Maxpedition products are tough and durable and worth the extra money. I've been using a Maxpedition bag as my work briefcase for probably eight years, and the zippers and stitching are still like new.

Cabela's tiny little "gear catch all" bags are cheap and tough.

Thanks for the reply posts and pics guys, I think that Cabela bag may be the ticket. I knew I would enjoy this forum, lots of experience and knowledge here.
