Taking AR-15 to the range

Hey, guys I was wondering, does anyone take their AR-15 to range on their wing? If so how do accomplish it?

How far does it break down- saddlebags? or open carry on the rear seat...
on trunk rack might deter tailgaters

They break down in two pieces, I was just wondering if some one had an easy option of carrying one, maybe I'll just use a scabbard like they used to on horses

Use take down pins, hard case with locking loops in center and both ends. Put lock on center, bungee cords in end loops placed side saddle on rear seat. Empty magazine or no magazine in AR. Ammo in locked container. Drive straight to range, no stopping for gas, convenience store, no stops. Be sure you have your firearms license on you. Drive straight home.

I agree with the above. Take off the upper assembly and it should fit in a saddle bag.


Remember the days when we use to ride around in our trucks with a shotgun or two in the back window?

I would use 2 ratcheting safety straps instead of bungee cords, which can fail.
