Gun bags are alot like handbags and purses. there's thousands of different onces and each has pros and cons. For an initial firearm bag, you can get a simple 1 or 2 pistol zip up gun bag. They sell them in Wally world for around 15-20 bucks. It's decent, holds upwards of 2 pistols and mags and is about the size of a clutch bag. Problem is there's not really room for ammo and color choices are kinda lame. I've seen black, camo and pink. from there you move into range bags. they will start around 25 bucks and go upwards of requiring a second mortgage. most are black, but Black is a good standard color and goes well with everything. All that said, it really depends on you shopping around and looking at individual bags. you will find one that works for your need and that will change as soon as you get used to it.
