A backpack instead of a range bag works really well.

Tired of struggling to transport and organize your firearms and shooting accessories? Look no further than the GPS Handgunner Backpack, an alternative to the traditional range bag. It’s better organized and easier to carry. In fact, I like it so much that I’ve pretty much abandoned my old conventional range bag with its dual wrapped handle and cavernous center pockets for this more organized and efficient gun supply carrier.

Feature-Packed Design 

The GPS Handgunner Backpack stands out from the competition with its thoughtful design and attention to detail. One of its key features is the dedicated pistol compartment, which provides secure storage for your handguns. The foam cradle system inside the compartment ensures that your firearms are well-protected and prevents them from shifting during transit. This feature alone makes the backpack a must-have for anyone who wants to transport their handguns safely.

In addition to the pistol compartment, the backpack offers a spacious main compartment that can accommodate all your shooting essentials. Whether you need to carry spare magazines, ammunition, ear protection, or shooting glasses, this backpack has more than enough room to keep everything organized. The adjustable internal dividers allow you to customize the space according to your needs, ensuring efficient organization of your gear.

Organization and Construction 

The GPS Handgunner Backpack offers numerous benefits that make it great for firearm owners. With easy access to your firearms and accessories, you can quickly gear up for shooting sessions or competitions. No more fumbling around in a cluttered bag. Everything has its designated place in this well-designed backpack and is easy to find, thanks to the Visual Identification System (VIS) that puts tiny icons on each pouch to tell you what’s inside. Do you have to follow the system? Of course not, but it is helpful.

The backpack is constructed with robust 1000D polyester, ensuring it can withstand the rigors of regular use and harsh environments. The reinforced stitching adds extra strength, making it a reliable companion for years to come. Whether you're trekking through rough terrain or engaging in intensive training, this backpack can handle it all.

It’s comfortable, too. The adjustable, padded shoulder straps offer a comfortable fit, distributing the weight evenly across your shoulders. Say goodbye to soreness and discomfort caused by carrying a heavy backpack or a handheld range bag that makes you lean to one side. Additionally, the sternum strap provides extra support and stability, preventing unnecessary shifting while you're on the move.

Price and Value 

When it comes to price, the GPS Handgunner Backpack falls within the mid-range category at an MSRP of $149.99. While it may not be the most affordable option on the market, its features and quality justify the investment. Considering the organization and durability it offers, it’s worth every penny. Consider it a long-term investment in the safety and convenience of your firearms.
