I'm looking for a small and decently priced range bag, I want it to be able to hold about 200 rounds of ammo, 2 pistols and safety equipment. (muffs, eye glasses, etc) Walmart used to carry one, but it seems the quality has gotten worse, and the bag is smaller. Any Suggestions?

The MidwayUSA compact bag is large to me. The large size has to be huge!

The compact is 16" long and the large is 22" long.

My wife has the compact, and I have the normal one. The compact isn't worth it to ME, but I like leaving my range bag loaded with supplies. Just add firearm and ammo,

Sears Craftsman toolbag. They used to sell a two bag set, one bag smaller than the other, all for like $18.

I have the old style Dillon bag, and the large Shooter's Connection tournament style bag. They are both black. I'd rather have a bag that doesn't shout "GUN!"

I know what you mean but I don't think the Midway bags are screaming "GUNS"...

And I was thinking about going the route of buying a tool bag to use, but the ones I have found don't really have pockets that are sized right for shooting gear, plus they're are a little bit too utilitarian for my taste. I do however know a buddy of mine that uses an easton bat bag to transport his AR in.

It's not cheap, but consider a Maxpedition Fleigerduffel. It's built like a tank, you can use it as a rest and not burn it up. Or my kid can, at least. Bombproof.

I use a Craftsman Cordless drill bag that I got for christmas with a drill, two batteries, and a charger in it back in 1990. The drill lasted 13 years, but now the bag transports firearms and ammo on the down-low.

The whole "GUN!" thing didn't really strike me until I was at an IDPA match down in Arkansas. The match was over and we were gathered under a pavillion as the plaques and raffle prizes were being handed out. Just about everybody left their range bags out on the lawn so we could get in closer and hear the match director. All the bags were black, including mine. Eeeeekkk!!!

I just use my old EastPack backpack from my high school days...
I can fit 200 rounds of 9mm, 200 rounds of .22, 2 pistols, hearing protection, cleaning kit, paper targets, target hanger all in there. I do use the fabric pistol cases instead of hard sided pistol cases as I can only fit one hard sided case in that backpack.

Tool bags make great range bags. Lots of slots and compartments, built to take abuse, usually can be locked with a padlock. Menards has several different models for low prices, and usually some are on sale. One of the nice things about using a tool bag as a range bag is that they usually have a trim color, and they look like you are going out to fix something, rather than going out to shoot something. It's easier to pick out your tool bag from everybody else's range bag, and you can walk out to your car past a cop without having him even raise an eyebrow. All he sees is the "Craftsman" or "DeWalt" on the bag.

I just convert my field bag I use during hunting season over to a range bag for the shooting season. That may change though if we're going to start doing classes in the winter.
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks"
-Thomas Jefferson-

I have this bag and like it quite a bit. Three (maybe four) of these bags fit the main compartment perfectly: http://www.midwayusa...=sugv1939167522

The only thing I would change on this bag is to make the end pockets "larger" so they stick out like the side pockets. They would then be the perfect place to carry ammo or muffs... as is they are just flush zippered pockets. I throw small junk in there like a pocket knife, ear plugs, etc. and put ammo and muffs in the sides. (not shown in the above picture.)

I have a few bags but this is the bag I'm using the most.

LA Police Gear has it on sale with the pistol bag for $38.99: http://www.lapoliceg...ge-bag-kit.html

I found it is large enough and still doesn't get too heavy with a couple of pistols and a few hundred rounds of ammo.

I've been looking closer at the MIdwayUSA bags and pretty much all of them get great reviews. drumgod, would you have pictures of the inside of one of the tactical pistol cases? Midway doesn't really give multiple pictures for a lot of their bags... :frantics:

The Midway bags don't scream GUN to me. It's got the MidwayUSA name on the side, in white, but unless you're into guns, I don't think the general public would give a second look at one of the black ones.

Now, the ones with all the little pockets that look like military gear? Those DO scream gun to me.

Another vote for the Midway bags in both sizes.

9mm = 45ACP set on "stun"
.45 ACP - Because Shooting Twice Is Silly!

.45acp... turning human garbage into useful fertilizer since 1911
