Crown Royal Bags Are Very Useful, Even as Weapons and Sandbag Rests

By Phil Bourjaily

Crown Royal bags have a cult following.

There are contests and websites dedicated to the things people keep in Crown Royal bags, and they are very handy for us hunters and shooters, too. You can use them to keep the removable trigger of your high-end shotgun, use them as sandbag rests and muzzleloading possibles bags, and I have heard of people storing pistols in them. I can only imagine they are perfect for fishing reels and other pieces of outdoor gear as well.

Until recently, I had never heard of anyone weaponizing a Crown Royal bag.

According to the Iowa City Press Citizen, Tony A. Maples Jr., upon being kicked out of his apartment on  Aug. 2, 2012, “returned to the apartment armed with a Crown Royal bag filled with rocks. Police said Maples pounded on the door of the apartment building until someone let him in, then hid in the laundry room. When Maple’s intended target entered the laundry room, Maples allegedly assaulted the man with the bag of rocks. Maples continued assaulting the man until the rocks fell out of his bag. He was located by deputies near the building and appeared to be intoxicated.”

I bet you didn’t see the part about alcohol being involved coming, did you? Anyway, maybe it’s just me, but I would think you would pull the little drawstring tight and tie it after you filled the bag with rocks if you were trying to make a Crown Royal bag into a sap.

What do you keep in your Crown Royal bag?

they make great change bags. I fill them with all silver coins ( I hate pennies!!!!). Once they are full you can go and buy yourself a couple new bottles and bags.

You said it: I keep my reels (not the best ones of course)in a couple of them.

I've seen CR bags in range bags, fishing bags, and just sitting on shelves with all sorts of stuff in them. They're just too nice to throw away.

I have a few, given to me by a fishing buddy, I put ultra light reels in them, and also cleaning kit accessories. I would have more if I liked the stuff, but I'm a sour mash kind of guy.

Fly reel extra spools.
I don't have any extra bags now because I switched to single malt many years ago.

I keep rifle bolts in them at matches and use them to set the bolt or my elbow down on something softer than a concrete while at the bench.

I have a friend who drinks "the crown" and saves bags for me. For years I have stored handguns in them in my safe. I also keep shooting glasses and choke tubes in these containers. The only problem I see is that except for size they look alike so one must feel of the bag or glance into it to be sure that he has the desired contents. I have every size from airplane minatures to liter, sure are handy. I a;so have a collection of coins in one bag and another for elk ivories.

I work bingo at a V.F.W. and there used to be an old gal that carried her bingo chips in a crown royal bag. When she died it was in her casket. Every time I'm in that cemetery and I go by her grave, I always say "I" 19.

I cut a hole in the bottom and use them for my reel covers.
They also work well for a mitt to wipe down the guns after cleaning.

I bought four dozen at a flea market for $0.25 ea and store fishing reels in them. They can be out over reels that are still on the rod to protect and keep dust off during storage.
