First Look: Uncle Mike's Gun Cases & Sportsmen's Range Bag

posted on June 25, 2021

Keeping all your gear together in a small, neat pile is an essential part of a fun trip to the range. Spending valuable range time looking for an essential piece of kit can bring the fun of shooting to an abrupt halt. In addition, your guns need protection and need to be kept safe as you take them to and from the range. This is why a well-organized range bag and well-built gun cases are an essential part of a successful trip to the range.

Now Uncle Mike’s is releasing new range accessories, including padded long gun cases and a multipurpose sportsmen’s range bag that are designed for maximum portability and protection.

The new Uncle Mike’s padded long gun cases are purpose-built to protect your gun while in transport and are shaped to accommodate most scoped rifles or shotguns. Well-balanced, wraparound nylon handles make for a more comfortable carry, while a full-length zipper allows the case to open flat. Each case features thick padding to cushion long guns from bumps and bruises, and the smooth, snag-resistant lining means that it’s easier to get your firearm in and out of the case.

Options for these new cases include black and forest green scoped rifle cases, which are available in sizes to fit up to 40-, 44- or 48-inch long rifles. The same color options are also available for shotgun cases in sizes that fit up to 48- or 52-inch shotguns.  

The new Sportsmen’s Range Bag from Uncle Mike’s has been designed to be a handgun owner’s best friend. The bag has been specifically designed to carry two handguns, ammunition along with other gear to and from the range. The main compartment flap opens fully and has two removable dividers, as well as two included pistol rugs to keep shooters organized. A wraparound nylon carry handle and removable shoulder strap make the bag easy to transport, while lockable zippers provide an additional layer of security.

MSRP for all the new cases is $19.95, and MSRP for the new range bag is $30.95. To learn more about this item or other product from Uncle Mike’s, please visit

Comfort is a big part of daily carry, and it should be. If packing your favorite handgun feels like you are smuggling a shoebox (or an angry hedgehog), then you will squirm, shift and give away the fact that you are carrying. Hot weather makes it even worse, as light clothing offers less in the way of concealment. When EDC becomes too much of a hassle, some just leave it at home.
