If I'm taking multiple firearms, I use my fold up wagon to carry my stuff in. Otherwise, it's either one range bag, or one soft long gun case. I get to shoot about 6-7 times a week at a range that has stairs to get in, so I can't use my wagon there.

Whatever fits my mood that day.

This ^^^^ When I do "theme days" it might be just Sigs, or just Glocks or the first four guns I purchased years ago. Sometimes it's a caliber theme.

I struggle with this every time, mostly because of how many bags/cases I have needed to take. I found this bag which allowed me to carry 2 AR's (a 16 inch and a 10.3), 5 pistols and magazines for everything. Note that you will need the 34 in bag to carry a 16in AR, and it just barely fits with stock collapsed.

The case is one of the best i've seen and is also discreet.

I carry in one hand my Range Bag for pistols etc. In my other hand the ammo can. If I bring my rifle in a soft long case, it has a sling and I carry it over my shoulder. I alternate guns, but bring at least one center-fire and one .22

Mostly it is SCAR17S or Glock 19 MOS, sometimes both.

I typically group them together.

Some days it's " 'Merica " rifle day, and all my ARs see action. Others its "commie" day and the AK, SKS, and VZ come out.

Other days, it can be ".22" day and the 10/22 and 15-22 see the light.

As of late, it's been "Ruger Day" where the PC Carbine, Mini 14 and 10/22 make an appearance together.

Just depends on my mood. And if I change my mind, I live 10 mins from AGC.

I'm getting better. I used to take a little of everything...now I usually take the pistol I carry and 2 other handguns or 2 rimfire or AR/mini 14.
I tend to run a few magazines through the carry pistol and then focus on a type of firearm.
I can't remember the last time I took a shotty or something like a .308.

I am really starting to dig my Mini 14.... It fires everything I feed it, and sends brass into the next county. I wish I had one sooner, but glad I got this one, it was on "fire sale" for $725 new for the tactical model. Synthetic stock but that is OK. Nice and light.

Usually at least two rifles, rarely more than four.

As for toting gear- it's a 100 yard walk to our 100 yard benches from the parking lot and about the same distance to the rimfire range. I solved the hassle of schlepping a ton of stuff via multiple trips by buying a cheap beach buggy/wagon. It's bigger than the average Radio Flyer, with big fat wheels for "terrain crawling", and folds up into a package the size of a large suitcase. All my junk and guns fit into it, and life is good. Cost- $50 and change with free shipping, eBay. Even if it craps out after a year or two it would be no big deal to trash it and buy another one.

The wagon, heavy-assed bench rest+sand bags, targets, spotting scope tripod, etc. stay in the trunk of my Saab with a ton of room to spare for everyday non-shooting usage- the only things that goes back in the house are the guns and range bag with ammo, spotting scope, and miscellaneous paraphernalia.

+1 for the tote/wagon. I don't get to the range enough so I tend to take too much. Better to have it not need it than to need it and not have it.
