Good Deal on Two-Gun Tactical Field Case from MidwayUSA

Here’s a good value for you tactical shooters out there. MidwayUSA has its 50″-long black nylon tactical drag bag on sale for $64.99, marked down from $89.99. This is a very versatile bag that compares favorably with drag bags costing $120.00 or more. The bags feature heavy-duty zippers and tons of storage, including internal pouches for magazines. There is a removable divider allowing two-gun storage, and the drag bag has a shoulder-strap system so you can carry the bag in the vertical mode like a backpack. With two rifles inside, however, that’s a heavy load.

Reviews from drag bag owners have been very positive:

  • Used this bag recently at a 3-Gun match. It held a full-length AR, Remington 1100, and all the ammo, mags and gear needed for a stage easily. With the backpack straps, it was easy to carry all that weight. Highly recommended. — Bob M., MO
  • This is a real nice bag. It is just the right size for my 26″. .308 Rem 700. Plenty of padding, nice that it can hold two rifles, but it obviously gets real heavy. Side pockets are perfect size for a spotting scope, although the pockets aren’t padded enough for a scope. Bigger side pocket fits ear muffs and such. — T.M., WI
  • I was looking for an inexpensive solution to get my rifles to the range, so I purchased one of these drag bags. What a shock, it’s outstanding! Quality materials, excellent design and workmanship. It’s padded, has pockets inside of pockets, supports to wear it as a pack, over the shoulder or like a case. It’s got everything! I also saw one at my local gunstore -EXACTLY- like it for over twice the price! (with a different name of course) Honestly, at twice the price… I’d still like it! If you need a bag, this is it. — J. Dawson, CA
  • I have few other more expensive bags and I would trade them for this one. Its great. Holds my custom 300 Rem mag and my AR-15 with plenty of room. All kinds of pockets for wind meters, clips, et cetera. – J. Harrison, GA

Gun Rights Groups Fight One-Gun-A-Month Law In Massachusetts

Massachusetts coinThe NSSF and Massachusett’s Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) continue to fight H4102, restrictive legislation promoted by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. If passed, H4102, among many other things, would make it illegal to purchase more than one gun in a one-month period. Of course, the only individuals in the state impacted by this legislation would be law-abiding firearms owners, sportsmen and firearms retailers. As if existing onerous firearms laws are not enough in Massachusetts, this would further limit the rights of citizens in the Commonwealth. NSSF urges everyone in Massachusetts to contact members of the House Ways and Means Committee and urge them to oppose H4102.
