I found these at Wal-Mart for $40. I like them because I can take all my handguns with me and configure them to fit the exact size of my guns. What do you use?

I don't shoot any more than 3 handguns at a time since I clean them after every range trip. Each one goes into it's own standard padded zipper soft case and then they go into a Bucket Boss Gate mouth tool bag like the one below. Extra mags go in the inside pockets or a separate bag just for mags.

Not trying to be a jerk :supergrin:, but I can fit all 8 of the guns in your first picture w/padded cases in my larger Bucket Boss bag that is less than half the size. It's also nice and discreet if it's sitting in the back of my SUV. I do have a SKB case that can fit a few handguns which does give it better access, harder outer shell, waterproof and with a pressure release valve.

I have been using a traditional backpack for my guns, magazines, tools, and gear. It has been ok but I need to find something better. Nice collection you have there.

I use the Midway bag when I need lots of space. They run sales on these bags pretty often.

When I'm only taking 1-2 handguns I use this.

I use one of these... It's pretty nifty, I can fit 2 (maybe 3) hand guns in it... plus there's ton of room for my ammo and spare mags.

I only have one pistol so my team glock backpack works great for me.

I use an old Ishot bag. Carries 5 pistols and 12 (i think) magazine compartments. good stuff. Been using it for about 8 years now.

Soft sided pistol cases + duffel bag. I like to keep things simple.

Thanks.

I also use a Glock range bag if I'm only going to take 2-3 guns to the range. Fits all my ammo, cleaning gear, ears, etc....

These Plano cases are also water tight and have the pressure release valve. I like the easy access and not having to dig through a bag.

I use an old US Armor Body Armor carry bag.

Fits many pistols, mags, boxes of ammo and ears.

+1 for the glaco kingtuk

+1 on using pistol rugs and tool bags.

I used to have a circa 1970's bowling ball bag I liked to use until the zipper broke; I have 3 of those plano AR cases I got on black friday for $30 each. Even at $40 its a deal, those go for $70-$100+ elsewhere and IMO they're really good quality for that price.

I like that, actually. I may have to look into getting one. I don't like my handguns moving around in a carry case.

One of the managers at my work does the same thing. It doesn't get more discreet than that.

Cheap holster on my hip for my pistol.

AR goes in a duffle bag with mags, ammo, eyes & ears, towels, maybe some CLP and boresnakes. The duffle bag is a crappy answer, but I get to the range too in-often to worry about it.

I use the same thing when I take 3 or more guns. With two or less I use a back pack.

OP, That is a cool case for a good price!!

I have a spare Pelican rifle case that I use to carry some of them in every so often. Usually fits 10 handguns though it starts to weigh a bit :)

I don't have far to drive to the range so I mostly just use gun rugs in a couple plastic tool boxes and one hard case. I usually carry a long gun.

No I bought them at a local wal-mart. Don't know if they are online or not. Theses have per cut foam, so you can tear out squares of foam to fit your guns.

I use a Pelican case as well but if you plan on storing in the case I would recommend you buy some desiccant. You can buy them at Amazon, and they are re-useable.
