Blackhawk Sportster Range Bag Review

Blackhawk Sportster Range Bag

There’s nothing quite like a trip to the gun range. Whether its indoor or outdoor, there’s something to be said about the planning of what guns to take, getting in some great practice while you’re there, and then coming home and cleaning up your guns.

If you’re like me, then it’s a hobby that you really enjoy and do often. The only problem is that you have to take a decent amount of gear with you. From hearing protection, shooting glasses, targets, and all the way to even some gun oil just in case, it’s quite a bit of stuff.

I actually remember my first few times to the range being pretty chaotic because I didn’t have a good way to keep all of my gear straight and orderly. In fact, I would often forget to bring a few things, which may or may not ruin the trip.

Eventually, I got orderly and smart about it. I came up with a set list of gear that I needed, and I got neat on keeping that gear squared away. The main turning point for me was a proper range bag.

After doing a ton of research and checking out some bags in store, I finally found one that I feel like is a hidden gem. That’s why in this article, I’m going to review the Blackhawk Sportster range bag. It’s been my favorite bag for quite a while now.

Note: Before heading off to the range, let us all remember that there are always solid rules to follow for safety. It’s super important to always practice good gun range etiquette. Having a good bag and keeping your gear squared away at the range is a big part of that.

What To Look For In A Range Bag

Fin Super Gun Lubricant Review

Do You Hate Cleaning Your Guns? I’m going to admit something that no gun owner would be proud of: I hate cleaning my guns. I find it tiresome, boring, and time-consuming, and I’ve often wished there was a way to make it easier.

A lot of this has to do with lubricant. I know, it sounds weird for a guy who doesn’t mind being elbow-deep in deer guts to complain about messy oils. But it’s really about quality and efficiency. Most gun oils begin to collect particles immediately. They then form a paste that becomes corrosive and abrasive, and they also cause jams if left too long. There’s nothing more annoying than missing a duck or rabbit because I couldn’t rack a shell in time.

Created by former Force Reconnaissance Marine Scott Redmond, Time On Target uses your Smartphone to call out tactical shooting drills and record your shot times.

TRUGLO Brite-Site TFO night sights


In August, I had TRUGLO Brite-Site TFO (tritium fiber optic) night sights installed on my M&P Shield. I haven’t done any nighttime shooting, but I do find they’re easier to see in an indoor range. The combination of tritium with the fiber optics has been nice since it increases the brightness of the sights regardless of the lighting conditions.

CrossBreed MiniTuck Holster Review

Crossbreed MiniTuck

After receiving my CHL, I decided that for my EDC I was most comfortable shooting and carrying my Kahr CW9 day in and day out. The holster search ended abruptly after ordering and fitting my Crossbreed MiniTuck. I knew I wanted a hybrid holster and I wanted it IWB. I like the idea of being able to have the quick draw and reholstering option of the kydex with the plushness of the leather. So with MANY praises sung to Crossbreed, I placed my order. Based on Crossbreeds marketing, I chose the horsehide for better durability from sweat protection.

While walking the maze of aisles at the 2013 NSSF Shot Show in Las Vegas, I was fortunate to have a chance opportunity to meet two fine gentlemen; Terry Adcock and Jim McAuley, founders of Gemini Defense LLC.  While crossing by their humble vendor booth in a hurry to finish up the day, Terry grabbed my attention with a simple “call out” to come over and check out their product.  Little did I know but I was about to be exposed to a very new, innovative combat sight system called the, “Z-Flex Combat Sight”.
