Going to the range -everything- right down to the gun cleaning equipment

Over the weekend, I went to the shooting range.

The weather was pretty chilly, but it’s always good to train in all types of conditions.

I brought only a handgun to the range this time, my trusty Smith & Wesson (M&P) compact.

Of course, I also brought my range bag, and I thought I’d share some of the gear I bring with me when I go shooting.

In no particular order, here’s what you’ll find in my bag:

-Electronic hearing muffs (I have a few pairs made by Pro Ears and Peltor)

-Shooting glasses (several pairs, some by Oakley and some no-name brands)


-First aid kit consisting of a tourniquet, QuikClot, gauze, chest seal, and plenty of bandages


-Gun oil—- https://syntheticoilus.com/index.php?zo=6322600

-Foam earplugs to have as backup hearing protection

-Sharpie markers to score targets

-Fixed blade knife

-Pair of pliers

-Competition timer (the Pocket Pro II)

-Small gun cleaning kit

-Spare batteries for my electronic hearing


-Extra magazines for my pistol

And that’s pretty much it.

It might sound like a lot, but my range bag isn’t that big and doesn’t weigh that much. 

Train Safe –
