    Out of space in my little Midway USA Range Bag, so I picked up one of these today. Normally sold as a Tool Bag, I figured it should be able to hold the weight. We’ll see how it holds up; at $23, if it doesn’t, I’m not out a lot. Comes with a carry shoulder strap too. They make a smaller 16-inch version, for around $15. Needed something to carry pistols & magazines I’m shooting for that day. IMG_1055.png

    I have known a few people who have used tool bags as gun bags. Not just for the range. I used to have one that was a Husky from Home Depot.

    Yep, they work well. Variety of sizes, pricing is reasonable, they handle weight, and are discrete / non-tactical...

    For years I used a cheap gym bag, and was completely satisfied. Now I have a large multi compartment bag from midway, and only take out the inner bag. This looks like a better option for me.

    I use a Husky open top tool carrier. Works great. Lots of pockets on the sides. Cost about $10 on Black Friday 4-5 years ago

    Yeah.... but Ralph would get caught because he wouldn’t be able to keep it to himself!

    Yep. Been using a Husky bag since 2010. You can cram a surprising amount of stuff in there. Held up better than any range bag I've had before it.


    I also use their totes to cart stuff around.

    I reviewed the Duluth Karl's lunch box and it looks like it will hold a bunch of stuff. Currently I keep a plastic tote in my truck that I constantly keep the following in, 45, 9mm and 22 ammo, ear muffs, eye protection and targets. I think I'll try one of the Karl's boxes to replace my tote. I looked and can't find them on Amazon - anyone know where I can purchase them (other than Duluth where I would have to pay full price)?

    Duluth does not wholesale their product. Unless you find something used, you will likely have to purchase it through them. Sign up for their newsletters/ads, you will get on-line coupons and notice of in store discounts. Use their store locator to find the one closest to you. I have one that is 10+ years old that is used as a range bag. The other is 3 years old used to carry my lunch at work. You will be hard pressed to wear one out.

    Went online and found two companies that are selling the Duluth Karl's lunch box for $59.95 versus Duluth's price of $89.95. They are - Home depot Deal Inc. of Arizona and Home Up Depot of Kentucky. I never heard of these 2 places - I'm concerned they're a ripoff, may Chinese knock offs? Anyone ever hear of them?
