Going to the gun range is important. Not only do we go to practice, train, and become more responsible gun owners...but we go because we enjoy it as well. Finding the best range bag for you is also very important.
Below are some of the best range bags around at different price levels. It is important to remember, however, that each of those listed below also serve different needs. Read on to find out which one best matches your needs.
The 10 Best Range Bags
Our list contains bags that span many different price points, as well as many different needs. While some may need a bag for one or two pistols and not much else, others may need room for a rifle, shotgun, extra eye/ear protection, etc.
I use a couple of different bags depending on what I am going to the range for that day. Usually I use my medium sized bag, however when I take my rifle I use my larger 3V Gear Double rifle case. It just depends on what tool you need for the job.
The Vertx COF Range Bag is sort of the high class luxury car of range bags. With that luxury comes the price. While the price may be a little steep for some, others may see the value for them just right.
Vertx is known for their high quality firearm bags. Their backpack can also be found on our best backpack list and it also remains a high seller due to the very high quality design, materials, and craftsmanship.

5.11 Tactical Range Bag

Another option from G.P.S. is this rolling range bag. If you take as much ammo as I do to the range, then you know your bag can get pretty heavy. This rolling range bag can save some stress on your back.
