G-Code Holsters out of Jacksonville, NC has come out with a “Bang Box”. Essentially it is a more economical way to carry ammunition to the range, instead of having to bring cardboard boxes that could otherwise be smashed or create range clutter. The boxes come in a variety of colors, from tan, black, OD Green, Multicam, Desert MARPAT, and Woodland MARPAT. They have a kevlar bottom, with a cloth zippered top (color of your choice) and velcro to attach caliber designations. On the inside they have a little flap pocket where you can stick the loading information that came with the ammunition boxes you originally bought or had. There are also polymer D rings where you could attach a sort of shoulder strap to, that comes with the box. In total, they can hold from 200-300 rounds depending on the caliber chosen. The caliber velcro tags go for $5 separately from the actual box, while the box goes for $25 a piece.
Granted, these are certainly a novelty range luxury item, but I wouldn’t be so fast as to put their practical application down. I mean yes, of course for a simple out and back range trip, the cardboard ammunition boxes are more than sufficient. But say for example, maybe a hunter or guide is going on an extended trip in the country, and is camping for a whole month. This kind of box could prove valuable to him. In addition I’m sure ammunition inside here wouldn’t heat up as much as the cardboard boxes would if left out in the sun (which you shouldn’t be doing anyways, but maybe you don’t have a choice). Either way, just another option for the tool box.
A small multipurpose transportable storage devise.
Perfect for the range when hauling a full blown ammo box is beyond your need. Likewise, dealing with ammo packaging in the field and the layers of trash that it generates is a pain in the neck.
For most range sessions 2-300 rounds is just about right. Prior to going out strip the rounds from their cardboard and paper packaging and loose pack them in the Bang Box. This eliminates any trash out on the range. The wide mouth of the Bang Box makes it easy to get your big meat hooks in on your ammo supply for an easy day reloading your mags. To keep track of your lots there is a pocket sewn on the inside of the lid and the Velcro strip on the top outside of the lid is perfect for placement of one of our PVC caliber patches.
Additionally there are no sharp corners on the sturdy Kydex base, an adjustable shoulder strap is included and there are several color combinations to choose from.
Keep in mind that the Bang Box can also be used for cleaning gear, spare parts or anything else that you can think of. Bang Box is solid, efficient and genuinely practical kit with an infinite number of uses. So handy no one can own just one!
