It can be many things...like a tackle box for cleaning supplies, or a box that holds your pistols and ammo and has a rest for your rifle.

Nah, I'm going with a 5.11 Range Ready Bag (whenever I can afford it), and a proper rifle rest next year. For that image, I literally Googled Range Box to look for a couple examples for those who weren't sure what you were talking about. I bet if you did the same, you'd find the image again, and maybe some that suit your needs.

Most people I know with proper range boxes for rifle, build their own out of hardwood like a classic tackle box or vintage tool box. I'd do the same if I knew I wasn't going to trash it by overfilling it with crap and bumping it into everything on the way to and from the range.

Right now, my ideal would be a small dolly or wagon with all terrain wheels to carry two or three ammo boxes, four long guns, five pistols, and cleaning gear. Huffing all that crap around for both myself and Brianne for the Zombie shoot sucked.

Slightly different application, but I know a number of Sporting Clays guys that have this or something similar to haul their stuff around in the woods.

I guess an even better question would be what do you want to have in your kit?

Everything you need for a range day?

Guess I'll just use what I got until something comes along. I guess there's different range bags for different days too.

Do you guys have different range bags/boxes for pistol/shotgun/rifle days?

I would think of having a kit that could hold a little bit of everything if needed:

Ammo, mags, mag loaders, ear and eye protection x 2, targets, target stands, spray glue, staple gun, staples, first aid kit, spray paint, basic tool set(hammer, screwdriver, saw, shovel), clays, spotting scope, brass/empty shell bag/box, garbage bags, extra weapon parts/tools and most importantly, toilet paper.

That's a lot of stuff for the "average" range day.

I have several bagmaster bags, the largest can handle 4 pistols, 500 rounds of ammo, eyes, ears, stapler, small rest, 8 mags, target pasters, small oil bottle, 2 rags,3 1 gallon zip locks and some pens. And that's if I use the pistol compartments for guns.

A day at the rifle range is diffrent, but target stands, garbage bags.... should already be at the range.

Clays go in the trunk of teh car.
Tools, are over rated. You shouldnt have any malfunctiosn that severe at the range. With the excetion of a rod for stuck brass I cant hink of what you may need although I do carry my Brownells kit in my bag.

T/P. I don't hink I've ever used a bathroom at a range, but my bladder is pretty solid.
