The Best Range Bags for Guns: Our Top 5 Picks

If you’re like me, you definitely can appreciate a good bag to keep your stuff organized. Similar to a golf bag for keeping golf clubs organized on the course, a good range bag will keep your guns, ammo, hearing protection and vision protection neat and organized.

I have a bit of a ritual when going to the range, I like to keep all of my shooting stuff organized and put it back the way I found it in my range bag.

When I get home, it’s much easier to dig out all of my guns from the range bag for a good cleaning and put them on my gun cleaning mat. Then, all of the non-essentials are stored in the bag for my next range visit. That includes targets, shooting glasses, target ammo, hearing protection and some other little things.

Having a good quality range bag definitely makes a difference and that’s coming from someone who brought an old duffel bag to the range for many years.

In this post, our experts found and reviewed the best range bags on the market to help you find one that suits you best. Let’s get started below.

Explorer Tactical Range Ready Bag 18-Inch Tan

A range bag with room for all of your goodies. This bag is constructed with 600 denier fabric to ensure it will put up with all the weight you can stuff inside and last you a long time. The bag is 18x14x10, so it isn’t the biggest range bag out there, but it’s big enough to store plenty of pistols, targets, and ammunition for your next trip to the range. And when it comes to pockets, theres lots of them, and removable partitions for the largest part of the bag, allowing full customization to fit your needs.

Make sure you do a full inventory when you receive the bag, as there are a few reports of missing parts, but the manufacturer seems happy enough to correct any packaging mistakes.

Osage River Tactical Shooting Gun Range Bag

Sometimes, keeping things simple is the best way to go, and this bag from Osage River Tactical not only provides a clean, simple shooting bag, but it comes with a lifetime warranty. The material is 600 denier ballistic nylon, so it’s more than rugged enough, especially for the compact model. There are two sizes to choose from, so depending on what you are looking for, they have a solution for you.

The simple form factor shouldn’t send you running if you like pocket space. There’s plenty of pouches and zippers, but it’s not overloaded to the point where you are left wondering what you will ever use an extra 15 mag pouches for. Some solutions are overdone. This one is just about right.

BlackHawk Pistol Range Bag SPORTSTER Bag

The overall size on this range bag from BlackHawk is fairly small. 16x9x8. For those who have less to carry with them to the pistol range, it fits all of your gear neatly, and carries like a suitcase. The design is simple, and it doesn’t come with the typical side pockets that you see on so many range bags. The material is 600 denier polyester, giving it a rugged feel and functional performance. The 600D is probably overkill on a bag this size, so you don’t need to worry about it coming apart, even if you fill it with rocks.

It’s a small, simple bag, and that isn’t for everyone. But if you only have a couple pistols to tote, this is a wonderful solution for a quick and easy range setup when you want to punch some paper and go home.

Explorer Tactical 12 Pistol Padded Gun and Gear Bag

16x9x11, and lots of pocket space. I’m the kind of person who likes to keep all of my shooting stuff separated without digging through complicated zippered sections inside of other zippered sections, and this bag tips my radar as a wonderful all-around range bag for my shooting. Perhaps it will work for you as well.

The 12 pistol bag provides plenty of versatility, starting with your favorite color patterns for the 1000 denier ballistic nylon that should hold up to abuse over the years. Rugged is an understatement, this bag is ready for battle. Padded compartments are everywhere, so even if you don’t have twelve pistols, you have plenty of pockets you can dedicate to things like ear buds, shooting glasses, a variety of magazines, and even snacks. There’s room for everything you need, without fiddling with partitions.

GunMate Range Bag

First off, this bag is constructed from nylon, and I was unable to locate a denier rating. The material feels like heavy canvas, but the manufacturer doesn’t advertise the rating. That said, the bag material feels solid, and it’s rugged enough for day-trips to the shooting range.

Where you save cost on expensive materials, the bag itself has a very clean interior feeling, includes Velcro partitions for the main section, and the dimensions are 16x8x7, making it pretty compact. I would recommend this one for the more casual shooters. Unless you will be filling it to the top with ammunition boxes, it’s a simple and affordable solution to your range needs.
