I actually have two identical rangebags made of ballistic nylon. One is for the ARs, and one is for the pistols.

In the AR rangebag, I have my windmeter, rangefinder, compass, extra stripper clips, LULA, electronic ear protection, mags, staplegun and extra staples, a few semi-clean rags, Otis cleaning kit, extra bolt carrier assembly, broken shell extractor, iron sight adjustment tool, extra otis patches, takedown pin punch, Leatherman multitool, triggerlocks, and sniper data book. In addition to the rangebag, I usually take a spotting scope and a benchrest stand and sandbag with me.

In the pistol rangebag, I have electronic ear protection, mags, extra ammo, swiss army knife, Otis cleaning kit, a few semi-clean rags, shooting gloves, mag quickloader, clothespins for outdoor range, and triggerlocks.

I have two enormous crates in the trunk of my truck (targets, tool box, staple gun, shot timer, binoculars, muffs, glasses, hat, change of clothes etc. etc.). My range bags are light - just mags, belt/holster/mag pouches, small pack of spares/tools, IPSC rule book and scoring overlays. I even leave the bags in the truck, and just carry ammo from stage to stage whenever possible.
Link Posted: 1/22/2006 9:53:34 PM EDT
Peltor Tac 7, Peltor Tac 6, a couple of Peltor standard low profile muffs, a couple pairs of cheap safety glasses, a pair Bolle goggles, big box of foam earplugs, multi-bit screwdriver kit, plastic divider box with Bore Snakes for all calibers I shoot, stack of paper plates, staple gun, box of staples, mag light with fiber optic attachment for bore exams, cleaning rags, bag of patches, bottle of CLP, first aid kit, antibacterial hand cleaner, handful of tent stakes (for holding down target stands), hammer, laser rangefinder (cheap Cableas model).

That's the standard loadout.

I keep mags in the ammo boxes with their appropriate calibers.

Handguns go in a locked case.

Shit load of AR mags, a USP w/ spare mag in a holster, surefire, eye protection.
Link Posted: 1/22/2006 10:23:55 PM EDT
Too much to list, but everything I need at the range for the day and I use a 26" Craftsman tool box as my "Range Bag"
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 4:42:26 AM EDT
I don't have a range "bag" per se. I have two very large ammo cans; one is weapons cleaning stuff, the other is range set-up supplies. My medical stuff is in a large duty bag that goes with me everywhere in my car, not just the range.
Link Posted: 1/23/2006 7:38:40 AM EDT
I use my duck blind bag! I pack it with 200 to 300 rounds of ammo per pistol, extra mags, eye protection, and ear plugs. For my RRA I pack small cleaning kit, ammo, and mags.

1) Electronic Ear Muffs
2) Disposable Ear Plugs
3) Small Plastic Tool Kit
4) Stapler & Extra Box of Staples
5) Black Targets
6) (4) Different Caliber Boresnakes
7) CLP
8) Maglite
9) (2) Pair of Safety Glasses.

And after that, things change on what guns I am bringing to the range.

I love those tactical rifle cases and will buy different ones for my different rifles and load them up with the special stuff that rifle needs.

Does anybody use dedicated pistol cases? I have one for my Mauser Broomhandle only.

So does everyone clean thier weaponry at the range or are the cleaning kits to remove bore/chamber obstructions?

no, I clean at home. Keep the kit there solely to keep everything together so I don't loose anything.

The only time I clean at the range is if I am trouble shooting .
For instance this is how I figured out my .22 will not run right unless it is wetter than my ex wife finding out I am leaving town for a month .

Snickers bars, Mt Dew, Beef Jerky, ammo, mags and hearing protection.

Don't forget some bottled water (fluoride-free). You have to replenish your precious bodily fluids. But at any rate, just make sure that you deny women your essence, Mandrake.

I keep in my range bag:
binoculars
range finder
wind gauge
chronograph
staple gun
NVD
GPS
Leatherman Tool
pocket knife
bean bag
granola bars
cleaning kit
spotting scope w/tripod
cigars
spare magazines
pen
Surefire G-2
spare batteries of various types
small diamond knife sharpener
eye protection



That's about it.

Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

Damn, Ben, beat me to it.

Right now, a rag, some allen wrenches, some miniature screwdrivers, an AR15 sight tool, extra ear protection, two sets of eyes, Peltor ears, FAL tool, .45 brass I need to dump out. I pack what I need before I go to the range, generally. Rest of the time, the bag is partially packed.

Staple gun
Extra staples
Roll o' targets
Extra mags for whatever I'm taking out that day
Cleaning kit
Spotting scope
Hearing protectors
Earplugs
Shooting glasses
Bottles of water

The ammo travels in its own can(s).

No, I don't clean at the range. I prefer to keep my cleaning supplies at the house at my gun bench, so I don't have to go hunting them down. It's usually dark when I finish shooting anyway. I have a small pistol kit from China-Mart that I use if a gun gets too filthy to run, or if I have some time to kill.

mags & ammo in an ammo can

blue tarp, tacks, targets, & a sharpie under the foam in my gun case

glasses & ear protection are usually already on me, or in my coat pocket

anything else, I leave in the car. The less stuff I have to drag out to the line, the better.
