So I've finally broken down and am building a range box. I've got access to some land and have built some target stands on it. Below is a list of stuff that I am keeping in it's own box. If you have any items to add to the list please post them.

All this is range specific, My firearms/ammo/mags/ears/eyes are in a totally different bag. This box is taken to an outdoor range.

Range Box [toolbox or ammo can]
Staple Gun & Staples
Shoot N C
Pasties
Masking tape 1"
spare ears [primary stay in the range bag] & plugs
index cards [various sizes]
paper plates
clothes pins
bug spray

anyone got anything else?

Basically, everything!

I have one of the plastic tool boxes from Lowes. Compartments in the top for more needed items. Pull out tool tray inside. In the bottom are Plano plastic tackle containers- the ones you can configure with plastic tabs. I have one of these for each caliber I shoot and take the specific one to the range. They have all my spare parts, springs, etc.

Partial list- jags, brushes, small bottle of solvent, patches (I usually run a couple of patches thru when I'm finished and run a wet one, let it soak on the way home). Cleaning rod. Screwdriver set. Small multi-tool (micro size). Small notebook and pens- one's a Sharpie to blacken sights if needed. Small can aerosol sun screen. Ammo. Mags. Chronograph, if I'm going to use it. Foam ear plugs. Shop rag. I started carrying a pair of shooting gloves when a steel sliver came back and bored in a knuckle. Package of small paper plates. Masking tape. Spare 9v battery for the chronograph.

Go down with my ear protection around my neck and carry a small tripod if I'm chronographing.

The range has staplers/staples, but I have one in my trunk.

Big +1

Even just the basics, 4X4's, wrap, large compress, air tight seal, a pair or two of rubber gloves, and some hand sanitizer. You can fit the whole thing in an old AR mag pouch. The 3 mag mil surplus with the straps cut out. I toss in a red sharpie to mark targets and a roll of electrical tape for general patching.
