^This one. I've held 4 pistols plus ammo and ear pro pretty easily. I am also able to keep a mini tool set should I need to do something simple while at the range. It's held up well over a few years of pretty rough treatment.

That being said, a range is a privately owned business, so if they want to make a rule that you can't enter with loaded mags, they can do that.

Prior to that letter, the advice given was to NOT carry loaded mags in MD.

That letter changed things, but many people do not know about it.

But since it is an interpretation, it could be changed just by the AG issuing a new letter saying loaded mags are NOT OK.

Range bags are like cars and guns.

LOTS of good ones out there. And some not so good ones.

Look around at the range. Look at them in stores. And pick one. And see how it works. Maybe it is great, maybe it is OK, maybe you need another one.

I have about 5 around. Different sizes and used for different range trips.

One thing, don't get a really big one. You WILL try to fill it up, and it will be HEAVY.

It was definitely a power trip thing at play to some degree, partly to just make an impression on a young shooter, and I just kept quiet and 'dove under the wave' so I could go on and shoot. Inside I was obviously annoyed I was put on the spot. From that day forward I vowed to never be on the spot again.
Things were different in 93.

Through the 90s I taught in several NRA Pistol and Personal Protection courses.

That WAS what was being taught, based on the laws and then current interpretations.

Yes get a range bag.

Read the law, don't listen to internet "lawyers" interpretations.

Make your own decision. I always suggest to keep the ammunition separate from the firearm in the trunk, it makes it easy to see by LEO you have no intention on combining the two items.

Would you listen to the interpretations of the Attorney General of the State of Maryland?

The letter of interpretation that is attached to an earlier post is from the AG.

NOT the opinion of some Internet lawyer.

And BTW, several members here are also lawyers for real.

OP, great advice already presented in this thread. As others have pointed out, a range bag is useful for actually carrying all of the stuff you'll need at the range. Assuming we're talking handguns, if you're still really that concerned about it, pick up one of these or comparable. Two separate hard sided and lockable cases in a single range "bag".
