Midway Bag Fanboi

I didn't mean to become a fanboi of the Midway bags... it just kinda happened. It started with a mini-group buy with the guys at work of the MidwayUSA Competition Range Bag ($39.99). It is the large, black bag at the bottom of the picture. It is huge. In fact, it is almost too big. It gets too heavy for the carrying strap if you load it up with hearing protection, safety glasses, a few guns, multiple magazines for each gun, several boxes of ammo, a flashlight, some basic tools, etc. The weight of the bag will cause the carrying strap to slide out to its maximum length. There are a ton of pockets and it includes a detachable bag with a mesh bottom for collecting brass along with two gun "envelopes." I like the bag, but it is better suited to an all day event where you needed to have absolutely everything with you.

Next up was the MidwayUSA Pro Series Tactical Rifle Gun Case ($38.99) that I got as a Christmas gift for my Smith & Wesson M&P15-22. I've not hauled it around, but it is well-built and fits the rifle and magazines with no problems.

Lastly, I ordered the MidwayUSA Compact Competition Range Bag ($29.99) and the
MidwayUSA Tactical Pistol Gun Case ($7.99). I used the compact bag for the Bullets and BBQ festival. It is a much better size for a typical day at the range. It doesn't have as many pockets and extras as the larger bag, but it will get the job done. I also picked up the pistol case for days when I just want to take one gun to the range.

If there is interest, I will do a quick video to give you a better look at the bags.

All prices were current as this of posting. Also, unless you must have a bag today, wait for the sales. They seem to come around quite frequently.
