Is this a legal way to transport a handgun to and from the range in my range bag? I'm kinda tired of transporting it in the case it came in and am looking for alternatives.

For the purposes of avoiding a concealed weapons charge? No, the secure container must completely enclose the firearm.

12026.1. (c) As used in this section, "locked container" means a secure
container which is fully enclosed and locked by a padlock, key lock,
combination lock, or similar locking device.

No idea what your range bag looks like, but on most you can simply padlock sippers together.

It would not qualify as a "locked container" in CA. The law's language says the container must fully enclose the gun and this one doesn't do that.

What would be the advantage of having it not fully enclosed like that?

If you can lock the zipper on your range bag, that can become the locked container.

It would not suffice

So that one container can universally fit a variety of sizes and shapes of handguns.

Gotcha. More like to comply with a law that says guns have to be locked if you have children around. A glorified trigger lock?
