Los Lunas, NM -(AmmoLand.com)- With the ever increasing popularity of AR-platform rifles, there has been a concurrent increase in the demand for equipment tailored specifically for AR and tactical shooters.

Some AR shooters looked to the military surplus stores for suitable equipment and all they usually found was completely worn out military equipment or really cheap Chinese knock-offs. Well, if you are an AR shooter, you do not have to look any further.

Patrick Gee, of G-Outdoors, and a military veteran, stepped up and designed the Tactical Range Bag with an ammo tote inside. When we saw this at the SHOT Show, I knew we had to get one. This bag incorporates all of the best features of the military tactical bags plus some extras that Patrick knew shooters would like. This bag has the patented G.P.S. Visual ID icon system for quick identification of gear stowed in the bag.

It is made from better material than the standard military issue, using 1000 Denier material coated with DuPont Teflon. The MOLLE webbing is triple stitched and unless my memory fails me, the stuff that our troops are being issued today are not triple stitched. Given the stitching on the MOLLE webbing of this bag, we can guarantee that you will never lose anything attached to it.

The internal (and removable) tote is incredible….. you can load more ammunition into it that any normal person could comfortably carry (see above picture). In fact, we decided to keep the ammo tote in our truck with all the ammo we plan to use and use the extra space in the range bag for additional gear. Of course, that is up to you, but it illustrates the versatility of this bag and the tote. The ammo tote also features two zippered handgun storage pouches. This is very cool, as you have your ammo in close proximity to your handguns.

As is normal for all G.P.S. range products, the YKK Brand sippers are oversized and self tracking…. none of those “cheap Charlie” ones found on the big box store bags. And, a feature that we found especially functional… the top zipper bar opens both zippers simultaneously for quick access to the main compartment of the bag.

The front and rear pockets of the bag have removable handgun sleeves that can be removed at the range for convenience. And, the front pocket folds flat for use on the range and has 7 additional magazine storage pouches.

The G.P.S. Tactical Logo patch (Velcro attached) is removable so that you can attach either your own name plate or club insignia. You can order this bag in black or tan. And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you… there is a handy carrying handle as well as a reinforced shoulder strap for this bag.

In our opinion, G.P.S. thought of everything when they put this bag together. Our only recommendation is that you should order one at your earliest opportunity. It is well worth the MSRP of $139.99.
