Okay, I wanted to start a thread to discuss what gear everyone is bringing. We can use this as a checklist as we pack up. So far, this is what I'm planning on bringing:

- XM177E2
- 2 M4 carbines
- Glock 17 & 19
- plenty of magazines for the above
- case of 5.56
- case of 9mm
- spare LPK
- tools
- cleaning supplies
- drop leg AR mag pouch
- fobus Glock holster
- pistol mag holder
- Wilderness 5 stitch belt
- shorts and long pants
- boonie hat
- sunscreen
- gloves
- cooler with plenty of water and gatorade
- foldout chair
- eyes and ears
- Lula Loader

I'm probably forgetting something but the purpose of this thread is to share ideas and hopefully figure out what we are missing.

Yeah, I was looking at the one they sell at Galyan's and they want $100 for it. It's neat, but not that neat. I suppose there's a cheaper one at Wally world or K-mart, but if you could borrow one for free, that's even better.

I have 1 or 2 of those very big blue tarps but no way of suspending them. You're free to use them if you can find a way.

I'll borrow one or two from the team to set up. I've already helped pay for these so it's no problem to borrow them when I need to. The take less than two minutes to setup and take down.

Update: I have one tent lined up and I can get another if you guys think we'll use it.

For the big umbrella shades, the best I've seen is at Costco. I bought one from WalMart from $100 and when I got home realized that it didn't tilt which is a pain in the ass as the sun starts to set. The ones at Costco are around $100 too but they tilt and appear to be better quality.

BTW. we bought ours after seeing how well they worked for other people at the BRD last spring.

I'm bringing:

target AR
3-gun AR
shotgun
pistol
lots of ammo
holster
pistol mag carriers
rifle mag carriers
shotshell holders
vice and "the toolbox"
umbrella
folding chairs
folding table
ice chest filled with water
snacks

The one thing I forget to put on my list is a Lula loader!

Also, should I bring an AK? I can bring either my SAR-1 or SAR-2. What say you?

I should have known!

Actually after digging them out of the closet I decided to bring the SAR-1. I'm already bringing too much as it is...unless someone that has never shot an AK-74 wants to give one a test drive?

The lack of recoil is simply amazing.

I have one of those EZ-up canopies. I can bring it. Any thoughts on carpools yet? I hate to drive down there alone. Maybe even a early a.m. breakfast along the route so there can be a caravan. I have a nice new Ram Quad cab, but I have visions of a flat tire in the boonies with a truck full of guns.

Yeah Hoplophile. You shot 9x19s SAR2 faster than I can . It's like shooting a .22 Magnum, I imagine with an AK74 brake is must really be light.

I should have a plain jane USGI style setup hanging around here somewhere. Anyone who wants to use it is more than welcome.

Things are scheduled to start around 9:00am.

IIRC, the dinner started somewhere between 5:30-6:00pm at the last one.

Nope.

I'll be leaving Friday, but I'm not too sure what time. I have Friday off, but I'm working Thrusday night, so I'll probably take a short nap then hit the road. I want to be there early enough to have a go at the three-gun on Friday PM, but that's just the plan for now.

I have plenty of room in the cop car though.
