I just ordered an I-Shot Pro Shooter's Range bag. It was $62 shipped. I got one in black. Ive read alot of good reviews on this. Anybody got one that can give me the low down?

You know, I have a 5.11 range bag on order from a local dealer, should get it any day now that my check's cleared (they weren't going to cash it until they had my goods); I could let you know what that one's like once I get some time with it.

03-10-2006, 05:22 PM
well, i already ordered it. was just wondering if anyone has one.

OK then. If you end up being unhappy with your choice, and the 5.11 holds 3+ pistols, I can let you know how it is :)

I might think about getting a range bag, i usually just make trips from the car to the bench. lol

LoL. Right now I use some nylon-ish freebie bags from the corporation a relative works for. The 5.11 was offered for an inexpensive price though via a group buy, so I went for it. Sort of a pointless upgrade, or maybe it will keep things more organized.

only reason i got it was because i hate having to carry 3 individual cases around. plus a plastic bag for ammo with my hearing and stuff...

plus it was only $54 before shipping. once i get this in, ill take some pics and do a nice lil review. im curious to see if the mags for the five-seven will fit in the mag pouches

i'd be very interested to hear the reviews of both the i-shot and the 5.11 bags.

well, I am convinced now, my pittsburgh pirate nylon bag i tote my stuff to the range in, well lets just say there is now a new hole in the bottom :(
I will bee looking at the bags my dealer has and see if any fit the bill

yeah, yesterday me and some friends went out to the range. and i had them in a regular travel bag and it almost ripped...

I guess a free bag i got at the ball game wasn't excatly range material, lol

well poop! the company i ordered the bag just emailed me saying that they are out of stock and wont get any more for another 2 months... Im browsing the web and every place says out of stock on black i-shot pro shooter bags... poop poop poop... maybe a couple of dancing monkeys will cheer me up.


that helped a lil..

A 4-5 years ago I bought a cheap "range"(it's green with pockets in side and out) bag at Walmart. I think it cost me 9-10 bucks. I only use it for ammo and mags but I can hold 1000-1200 rounds of .223,9mm,.45,.22,.44mag,12-15 mags and eye/ear protection. It still holds up with no problems. If you want to try something like this try Walmart, Cheaper than Dirt, or any number of online places. I was also looking at a small wheeled piece of carry-on luggage to hold everything. I saw one the other day for a lap top that looked like it would work great. I just haven't tried it yet.

i was at cheaper than dirt the other weekend and wasnt really all excited over the range bags that they had. You can call me picky i guess. right now i keep the guns in the original cases and just put them in a bag i use when i travel.

I use a Docksil 4 pistol case to hold my hand guns. The nicest, no. The prettiest no. Does it work, yes. It was $20 or 30. I tend to prefer a hard sided case. I cut the egg crate foam to really hold them. I have a couple different foam inserts for different guns when I go to the range.

Try sportsmansguide.com I have never bought anything from there i just happen to see a bunch of bags and cases.

03-15-2006, 08:21 PM
i have only bought ammo from them before, they have quick service.

03-15-2006, 08:22 PM
the membership pays for itself after a few cases of ammo. plus the internet coupon codes, they have them listed on arf (http://ar15.com) if you buy anything from them.

03-15-2006, 11:44 PM
They're close enough that I've bought from their retail outlet. I should look into those discount codes; thanks for the head's-up.

Not exactly sure when I'll get around to picking up that 5.11 bag... I'll post about it here though.
