Buyer's Guide: Shooting Range Box

How to Position a Shooting Range Box Properly

The shooting range box is one of those must haves in your gun shop. It's the one place where you store all of your ammo and other gun supplies. Even though it does make sense to keep everything in its proper place, everyone makes the same mistakes. It's where your target shooting is done, so it deserves a little TLC every now and then. We'll take a look at some ways to properly maintain the shooting range box.

Over-molded rubber padding is one of the more popular features of these boxes, and for good reason. It offers plenty of deep storage for supplies and ammo, while the easy positioning makes it easy to get to when you need to clean out the gun. Anyone who has ever owned a traditional (pistol) shooting range should be familiar with the standard "rangebox," which is basically a small storage room with shelves and pockets for storage of different items, like ammunition, cleaning equipment, etc.

Over time though, the standard "rangebox" starts to feel like an afterthought. While you still have a place to store your guns, there are times when you'll need another shelf or a spot to set up your cleaning station. That's when these over-sized units come in handy, providing lots of storage space and plenty of drawers as well.

For example, one of the most important features of these boxes is the fact that it comes with a sliding magazine storage compartment, great for feeding cleaning agents or grease and cleaning cloths. Some models provide dual magazine compartments for ease of use. You can slide one section out when you need to use it, but easily flip the other back in again. This section offers loads of dividers and slots for various cleaning tools, ranging from wire brushes and solvent cans to plastic or paper weights. Some models even feature a top-mounted pullout trash can, perfect for rinsing off expended ammo and cleaning fluids. The overall length of the sliding shelf varies, but most are in line with the overall length of the actual magazine (usually no more than 3 inches).

If you prefer a different storage feature, then you'll love the magazine storage section offered on some models. The most popular model includes two removable, expandable drawers located on both sides of the unit. There are separate compartments for cleaning kits, ammo, lubricants, cleaning agents, cartridges and more. There is also a slit located behind the magazine that allows you to insert cleaning agents into the slots. These cleaning stations often feature rubber inserts which make it easy to grab and push back into place. There are usually several tiers of slots, each with their own set of drawers.

Lastly, there is the pistol shooting station top section, offering two trays. One has a full-length, rectangular window opening that allows users to dump any old cartridges they may have and to keep new ones in their holders. You can create a secured seating if you wish by placing the left tray forward for feeding brushes and cleaning agents. There are two slats on either side of the tray for securing a belt clip or for keeping an old BB out of the way. The bottom tray, which also has a full-length window opening, can be used to feed your gun cleaning kit or to keep your BB's in place.

The other tray can be positioned to face in opposite directions, with the long side being used for chamber, magazine, or trunnion rails while the shorter side can be used for a magazine, shotgun, or other accessories. Additionally, the two trays can be positioned forward and backward, with each having three sections: the top section having a six-way adjustable span, the middle section has three separate compartments with removable, firm foam inserts, and the back section has three pockets with mesh openings that allow you to stuff spare casing, primers, or BBs. The gun cleaning kit top section offers plenty of dividers for different types of guns, keeping them organized. In addition, the two trays can be placed forward and backward, with each having three sections: the top section has a six-way adjustable span, the middle section has three separate compartments with removable, firm foam inserts, and the back section has three pockets with mesh openings that allow you to stuff extra BBs, primers, or magazine.

Finally, you can position the two trays in opposite directions by shifting the long side in your chosen direction for compressed air, and the short side forward for compressed air. This will create more space for your shooting accessories. You can then install your new accessory, and enjoy your newly refurbished shooting range.
