CrossBreed Holsters may be best known for its holsters (it's right there in the name, after all), but the company has just launched its first-ever pistol case. It's called the Range Defender, and it's got pockets and panels for everything ... except hassles. No room for those!

Most conventional soft-side pistol cases are constructed with a single compartment. Trouble is, contents can shift and slide around, which isn't exactly ideal for optics or your pistol's finish. By contrast, the Range Defender is a multi-firearm, multi-magazine case that keeps handguns and magazines securely stowed for safe transportation to and from the range.

Constructed of a rugged, all-weather ballistic polyester shell with padded interior panels, the Range Defender offers two options for securing a handgun.

First is a detachable zippered interior case that accommodates up to and including full-size pistols and revolvers. This padded case features a soft liner to protect the handgun from finish wear and impact. Incorporated into the detachable case is a zippered exterior pocket suitable for magazine and accessory storage.

Second, the Range Defender hosts a full-size hook-and-loop interior panel. This panel is designed to work with CrossBreed’s Modular gun and magazine holsters. The Modular holsters attach to the panel to prevent shifting and to keep the gun and magazines securely in place.

The Range Defender also comes with generous accommodation for up to 12 magazines. Dual elasticized MOLLE-style straps keep the magazines conveniently organized for easy retrieval. Located behind the magazine panel is an additional interior pocket that is perfect for storing needful range supplies.

To facilitate carry, the Range Defender includes a hook-and-loop closure handle strap made of the same tough ballistic nylon as the case. Finally, an exterior zippered pocket is added that is ideal for securing small items such as sight adjustment tools, target pens, chamber flags, batteries, and more. MSRP $89.95;
