View Full Version : Who makes the largest range bag?
8th August 2004, 10:02
I have the largest Bagmaster range bag they make, but it's getting worn out from 10 years of lugging guns/ammo/supplies around. What other brand makes a large range bag.
I need to carry some of these:

I posted a similar question on this forum and got this reply from "Wakal". Not sure if anyone could put it better.
"Ah, bags. I won't push any particular bag on you, but I will let you know the path that I have trod (and left strewn with bags galore).
Started with a Dillon. Cute, small, doesn't hold squat. My wife started with the Dillon backpack. She still uses it...as airline carry-on (without the silly little chair, of course). Pro: small and light. Con: Can't carry crap.
Moved to a Galatini (the large one). Works ok, but I didn't like the dual outside pocket gun slots. Pro: cheap. Con: poorly designed, although well made.
Moved to a Green Mountain. Liked it a lot, except that I would lose things inside...my own fault, since I put mag springs and other longish flatish things inside between the lining and the center section...and the longish flatish things would migrate to the bottom of the liner and be lost until I emptied the bag In Search Of Stuff Pro: available for order in lots of colour and trim choices with embroidery. Con: easy to lose stuff inside due to odd interior construction.
Then...a Shooter's Connection bag. Adore the take-out center section (they call it a "stage bag"...two padded zippered gun pockets, and enough center storage area for ammo and magazines) for when you don't want to lug the whole monster bag. The side pockets and water bottle holder are very usable, and the magazine loop side is much easier to use that the Green's elastic. Pro: able to hold a ton of stuff. Con: ...able to hold a ton of stuff.
I messed with one of the new super-high-dollar Brownells range bags when I was building the Area 4 prize table this year. Bleah. Well made, but not laid out by shooters who, well, shoot.
I use a Shooter's Connection bag and have all the other ones in dusty deep storage with no intention of changing again. Actual milage may vary, not for the other use, keep out of children."

Thanks for the tip. I'll check out the Shooter's Connection bags.
