    I ventured out this weekend for a couple rounds of sporting clays...just a coating of snow on the ground but enough to make it and the mud stick to my clays cart....it's a pain in the ass to clean the crap off of the cart before folding it back up and putting it in my truck cab.

    I saw a couple guys out on the course carrying either a shell bucket bag or those cartridge shell bag /speed bags...it's a pretty neat accessory if you just want to do a quick couple rounds and dont want to drag the cart out and get it muddy, especially in the snow. I would still use my cart for those days when I plan to spend a good few hours shooting and lugging flats of shells.

    so my question is, does anyone have a recommendation for a good shell bag to tote around 100 rounds or so? I'm looking at the Orvis Gokey bag that can hold 100 shells...$180....Barbour makes a couple in wax/leather, canvas, and full leather but priced a little higher....Galco leather is pretty expensive as well. Connecticut Shotgun is about the same as the Gokey.

    appreciate any opinions on those use a bag

    Thanks.

    I have used a Galco for over ten years. Never tried to get anywhere near 100 rounds in it though. Wouldn't be able to keep my pants up!

    claybr: the Galco I was referring to is a shoulder bag, not a waist bag.....

    Another option, if you aren't necessarily looking for high class, is a camera bag. I got one from walmart a few years ago, and just holds 4 boxes of 12ga, with enough pockets and room for a few accessories. I think I paid around 15 bucks.

    the shell bags tend to be an "oval" design....designed in a way that the bag does stick out horizontally and you can actually shoot with it strapped across your body....I think the camera bags are more "boxy".

    I think what you are talking about is called a ladies purse. I know that they are very popular on skeet fields too.

    I have used plastic bags to carry around shells when I first started shooting clays a couple years ago......triple bagged and they still ripped...time to upgrade ;-)

    Edit: mods, why did you edit the title of my thread?

    Go to Home Depot and look at the soft (fabric) tool bags. My kid did that to hold his ammo, magazines, muffs, etc., for range shooting. They'd work fine for sporting clays for shotshells, choke tube pouch, empties, etc. These bags are in the $19 to $49 range and are well made.

    Check out the fishing tackle bags that have the hard plastic bottom.

    These are $15 at Cabelas....will carry 100 rounds and the empties, too. Tough to imagine a more useful bargain.

    saw these on an English shooting site.....they make things complicated LOL...I got a kick out of these pics.


    maybe a mesh bag used to package oranges would serve this person better ;-)

    This is interesting....don't see how functional it is over a pouch but interesting none the less...

    Mike--The fact that you know that much about purses is scary. Your not a skeet shooter hiding on a Trap forum are you? LOL

    The cabelas shell bag shooting shorts listed in the above post are very popular with the old geasers at our club. Worn alone they say you can recapture that agressive intimidating stance, that you used to be so proud of while improving your swing.

    For years I have been using a soft sided cooler made by Avery for duck blind use. It holds up to 16 boxes of 12ga shells and has accessory pockets. The cost was around $35. Works very well. Bill
