Transition from Range Box to Range Bag

Range Box - 1

I am a toolbox guy. I have a separate toolbox for each job that I might find myself doing around the house. If I need to do something to my car, I grab my toolbox filled with ratchets, sockets, and wrenches. If I need to repair a piece of furniture, I grab the toolbox with my planes, squares, and chisels. If I need to do some plumbing, well, you get the idea.

When I got into the hobby of firearms, it only seemed natural to purchase a toolbox to contain all of the various items I would take to the range. Initially I considered a range bag designed just for shooting, but many of them were priced higher than I felt comfortable spending on a bag.

In short order I managed to outgrow my range toolbox. My range trips started off with me carrying my toolbox in one hand, two pistol cases in the other, with a third pistol case tucked under an arm. Once loaded into the trunk of my car, I would go through the same process to move the items from my car to one of the shooting tables.

Range trips were becoming a hassle with all of the miscellaneous stuff I was carrying. In an effort to make things easier on myself, I was once again back to considering a range bag. It just so happens that over Black Friday, Midway USA ran a sale on thier range bags. With more than $20.00 off, I decided to bite the proverbial bullet and place an order.

The vido below gives you a little tour of my range toolbox and new range bag. Since recording the video I have taken the Midway USA bag to the range and love it. I’m not exactly sure what I should be taking to the range (I used to take cleaning supplies and such), which is why I have a question for you.

What is in your range bag?
