Wanna Win Won? Meet Bang Bang Boutique’s ‘Mother’ of all range bags

Not too long ago, a woman searching for a decent range bag, one with a bit of style, was often told to settle for a diaper bag.  After all, it is padded and has numerous compartments like a range bag.  If you can get past the pale colors, the cute little baby animals and convince yourself no one at the range will know the difference, it may be a suitable alternative.  Some are better substitutes than others. Just last weekend, I was in the baby aisle looking for a replacement diaper bag when I happened upon a black duffle style that looked so similar to the small range bag Bang Bang Boutique offers, I couldn’t help but shout “Hey – this looks like something I could put my guns in!” – right there in the baby aisle amidst terrified looking mothers.

People – let us stop this madness!  Diaper bags are for babies and the range bag Bang Bang Boutique is giving away this month is for your firearms.

In honor of Mother’s Day, this give away is nothing short of the Cadillac of all range bags.  And doesn’t your mother or mother of your children deserve the very best?  Imagine her delight on the morning of May 13th when she opens a card that tells her she will soon be receiving the very range bag she has always been searching for, in her favorite color and embroidered with her name in her second favorite color staring back up at her?  No doubt her next move will be to load it up with her gear and realize “Hey!  I need more gear, ammo, perhaps a new gun or two – this bag is not nearly full enough!”  Which will give you, gentle gift giver, a plethora of gift giving ideas for this special lady the rest of the year.

Versatile is almost an understatement as the Handgun Range Bag is three bags in one.

1)     It is a padded handgun carrier with two zippered compartments and a divided middle compartment.

2)     It is a separate carryall bag that has a compartment for the hand gun carrier and a separate compartment for accessories

3)     It is a combination of the two bags that can be carries as on convenient, protective, organizer bag for your handguns and the associated gear.

Made in the USA, construction will be the least of your concerns.  Outside, the bag is crafted in 1000 denier Cordura and available in every color of the rainbow as well as a few wild animal prints, and Pink True Timber Camo.  Other colors or prints may be available upon request.  Inside, find 420 denier nylon packcloth lining, 3/8” high density foam padding and heavy duty YKK zippers.  All seams are taped and double stitched.  All stress points have been reinforced.

As each bag is made to order, it takes 2 weeks to ship.  The winner of this bag can have their mother’s name embroidered on the front pocket – which is also an option for anyone who buys the bag through Bang Bang Boutique.  We will gladly provide you cover on 5/13/12 by making sure you have something to stick in your mother’s day card to prove you were not slacking off and your beyond thoughtful gift is on its way.  If your lady needs a larger bag, be sure to check out the Hand Gun Range Duffel!

No matter what gift you choose, get 15% off at Bang Bang Boutique with coupon code MOMWON.

To win, just tell us about one thing that most people probably would not carry, but that you carry, in your range bag and why. Is it a lucky charm? Is it a special snack? What is it?

Deadline is midnight, May 4.

    In addition to all the basic range necessities, I also carry a small camera and sketch pad. Never know when you might get inspired or see a beautiful thing… like a gal blowing the bullseye completely off the target šŸ™‚

    My range bag is actually my husband’s…we share one for now. Would LOVE one of my own. I carry Spree candy. I like to suck on them while shooting.

    I usually have an interestingly shaped little rock that I find at the range. reminds me of being a little girl!

    My range bag holds a lot of tissues, hand sanitizer, bandaids, tweezers, roll of spongy medical tape (3M), and Binoculars. The binoculars are the most borrowed and asked for because who can see .22lr’s at 15 yds?

  • Michele says: May 8, 2012 at 11:54 pm

    I carry deodorant, feminine products, toilet paper and a book. You just never know on those long outdoor range excursions what you will need!

  • Mary Ellis says: May 8, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    My range bag(s) have microfiber dishcloths(better for the guns than the dishes!), sticky notes & contact lens eye drops!

    My range bag is my old diaper bag :/ But I always carry a business card holder with pictures of my kids to remind me of why I learned to shoot in the first place…. To protect what I love more than anything else in the world, my babies šŸ™‚

    My current range bag is the same one I use for school. It’s a pain in the butt to change it out back and forth, but you have to do what you have to! I carry and use my sons homemade targets that he draws for me! Who can say they have their own unlimited target maker? lol šŸ˜‰

  • Ronda says: May 8, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    I carry the one thing my husband forgot to grab….the staple gun! I do it because he always, always forgets it…hard to put a target up without it!

  • Lia says: May 2, 2012 at 11:16 am

    As a nurse, I’m always thinking of a possible medical need, so I carry a small first aid kit in case of an emergency for myself or fellow shooters. Gloves, bandaids, first aid cream etc and a CPR mask.

  • Wendy says: May 2, 2012 at 9:03 am

    I have patches on my bag to remind me of all the great times I have had shooting. There is one for our shooting club, STI, USPSA, Range Officer, ect. My favorite 2 are the one that says “Babes with Bullets Alumni” and the one that says “Happiness is a Warm Gun!”. It makes my boring black bag livable but I would love to move them to a prettier home!

  • Collette Anderson says: May 1, 2012 at 6:35 am

    I have a backpack for my range bag….I always have baby wipes to clean up!!

  • sherry says: April 30, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Well, I just recently started shooting so I don’t have a bag yet. But the first thing that will go in will be my lucky old indian owl carving I have~for wisdom and knowledge.

  • Britney Starr says: April 30, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    My lucky charm is a turkey tail feather. I don’t have a range bag yet…I’m a “dog mom” so this could be Wesson’s gift to me if I am lucky enough to win it. šŸ™‚

    My current range bag is whatever bag I can find at the time. Sometimes a lunch bag and sometimes a backpack. A range bag is something that I’ve always dreamed of having but with two kids, never have the money for myself to buy it. Something I always carry with me no matter what bag I use is this little horse figurine I’ve had since I was a little girl. I love horses and to me they represent freedom. Shooting also represents freedom to me as a woman and a sense of peace and empowerment. Horses and shooting go together perfectly and I can’t imagine shooting without my little horse figurine in my pocket.

    My current range bag is actually a beach tote and it’s far from ideal. My lucky charm is a purple banana šŸ˜‰
