So, you woke up this morning and decided it was a good idea to shoot some stuff. In most cases, that is a very bad idea … like in your suburban home. But at a shooting range? Much better.
The natural next step for your new hobby is supplies, and, of course, the very best gun range bag to keep it all in. Like your bug out bag, IFAK, or EDC, a range bag will vary depending on the owner, and for good reason. Every person at the range will have a distinct background and their own objective for a shooting session, although there certainly are some common personalities you might see at a gun range. This is all to say that every list of range bag essentials is different, and while I will provide suggestions, your bag will grow with you.
If you are a new shooter, however, it is imperative that you know, and make good use of, the safety procedures that come along with the use of your firearm.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN THE BEST RANGE BAG?
Amid the plentiful pickings for the best gun range bag, it can be hard to choose one in a sea of range bag reviews. From my experience, the best range bag is fit to last, with a material that is durable and resistant to abrasion. It is sturdy enough to accommodate the weight of your gear and will have enough space for what you need. The best gun range bag, as well, is sure to have various pockets and compartments to organize gear. It doesn’t hurt for your bag to be water-resistant, either. 14er Tactical's Range Bag has many interior and exterior storage options to tailor all your needs.
WHAT TO PACK IN A RANGE BAG?
