    My current gun bag needs replacing as its looking rather tired after all these years. My problem is the only decent FT gun bags I can find in stock have a block of ONE PIECE foam fitted which you pluck to suit your rifle. My concern and question is how awkward are these style of bags to use on a shoot?

    I appreciate for storage and travel, a one piece case is far better and offers more protection.

    Appreciate anyone's views

    Andrew.

    Hi sandpiper, i use the buffalo ridge gun bag which is fine and fits my ftp / high mounted big nikko and ginormous sidewheel ok, the gun does slip in and out easily as the foam is under the nylon.

    I note that you live in Cannock but are a member of Anston? im only from brownhills myself.

    AIM FT-100 Drag Bag, it's the only FT bag you'll ever need!

    Hi avfc1982,

    Thanks for your response. I have looked at the "Buffalo River - Dominator" bag which is becoming my close second choice but it has a severe lack of pockets on it (ie: rather thin and useless). I love the AIM FT-100 but not even AIM have any in stock.

    Yes, I am a member at Anston FTC, lol. My family was originally from Sheffield area and subsequently done most of my shooting from Full Bore Pistol; Shotguns; HFT / FT etc in that area. My cousin still lives up there so we tend to go to shoots together. Was at Millride the other week for your shoot in the nice wind, lol.

    I'd hold out for an AIM bag Andy, you won't ever need another one after that.

    Sent AIM an email asking about availability this afternoon Paul. I guess I could wait till January as it's a present to myself :D

    My first choice of the Solware bag is a none starter as there stock is stuck in China as the manufacturer done a runner and stock being held by the owner of the premisses. So they may never turn up at all. :eek:o

    The only practical tactical ones left in stock have block foam and don't see the point spending that kind of money to hack it about and supply my own foam. :eek:o

    The Aim 100 is a good choice,but I use a Ridgeline sniper bag £94.99 from Uttings The 47inch will hold a FTP900 comfortably, has zip pockets and detacheable side pocket,external multi straps to carry on shoulder or by hand.and internal straps to support rifle, bag resists rain and well built.Pick one up ,was £109.99 but reduced now and Aim waterproof cover will fit.

    I bought a BSA tactical backpack bag and i can't fault it. Dirt cheap but built to last, with plenty of pockets and pouches. Its also got ample padding which minimises movement and ruduces any knocks.
