Default Pack my um Pack

O.k., just got my Gunslinger. Man is this a really nice pack. Lots of room and pockets.

Assuming a day long adventure what would you normally want to have in your pack. What I mean by adventure is Timberwolves PRII class This is what I was planning on having in it.

Rifle with sling and rear bag.
Ammo
Water
Data book (mildot master included)
Gloves (gotta order those)
Allen wrench set
bipod (maybe two just in case)
Shooting mat/blast mat (thanks ryan)
extra mags
food

Anything I am missing? I may talk the wife into getting me or letting me get a kestrel for christmas.

I gotta save up and get the rangefinder I really want. I got rid of my rangefinder to help pay for dogs surgery and I want something that can reliably range to 1000 yards.

I probably should put a couple of extra batteries for my scope illumination as well.

As far as batteries go, always get Lithium. I've been in conditions where only I had a functional flashlight because Lithium batteries have a wider operating temperature. I use it for my lights and GPS.

Perhaps a boresnake and a small squeeze bottle of solvent and lubricant.

I'm considering some red sunglasses for that purpose. Even if you have a red flashlight.. you never know when a beam of somebody else's white light is going to cross your path.

You're right. I don't know if the Geovids use a different laser unit than the LRF's but the geovids are listed at 1300 yards. Not that it makes a huge difference. My FIL got them for me for Christmas. It would be hard for me to drop that much on LRF/binos.

This is a sweet piece of kit I dig...

http://www.amazon.com/Petzl-TacTikka.../dp/B0007Q3R3E

Takes care of your red and white light needs in one small package.

Small calculator

And just because you have 3000+ CI in your pack..dont fill it up man..travel lite.

I have a 3 day field train up next weekend I am kitting up for and I am throwing out half the stuff I brought with me last time.

YMMV,

Vu

You hit that on the head - I've reduced my load out by about 1/2 since I first started back into this about 5 years ago. It takes loading out a few times before your realize what you need, what you don't need and what you can probably do without. That's part of what this class is about.

So I should not buy a new pack just yet then.
I'll wait and see what others have.

I have one of three packs that I use depending on where I'm going and what I'll be doing:

1) Camelback M.U.L.E - great little pack when all I really care about is ammo, water and rifle with a little room left for tool kit, first aid kit and a couple of power bars;

2) Maxpedition Falcon II - this is my normal go to pack for matches - has enough room for all I need, very confortable to wear and is a good shooting platform;

3) Eberlestock Phantom - this is the pack I normally take to the desert and/or classes - 2900CI plus room for 2 100oz hydration bladders. This booger gets heavy especially with Savannah in it (she alone weighs 16 lbs) but the way this pack is designed its very managable.

Notice the one thing all these have in common is that they are hydration compatable - very important either in heat or cold.

If I were taking this class I'd either hump the Falcon or the Phantom - remember it will be January and you will also need to consider regulating your body temp throughout the day which means layering of clothing - you may need the extra room. But then again this is SoCal and it could be 65 degs to.

Another thing is there is no such thing as a "DO IT ALL" pack. I should know because I am as much of a "pack whore" as a gun whore.

Once you get your pack...load it up and hike with it. I mean really load her up and hump it to see if it really fits you. Just because the pack fits joe blow the secret squirrel means that it will fit you comfy.

Some of my personal favorites....

Spec Ops - The Pack
Tactical Tailor - 3 Day Plus Pack
Maxpedition Falcon II

For classes I prefer a pack along with a LBE/LBV system.

The pack would be fore 3rd line gear and the LBE would be for first line...i.e. stuff to run the gun.

I am a HUGE fan of MOLLE....get a pack with molle so you can add or take off pouches as needed. Customize the way you want your kit orgranized.

Maxpedition Falcon II keeps popping up.
Hmmm, that's what I call a clue.

I might have to try one of those.

LA Police Gear carries them and normally at a pretty good price. I order a lot from them since they're local (in Santa Clarita).

LA Police gear would have to charge me shipping and sales tax on their 109.79 price.
I just bought it from ebags for 106.49 shipped.

I have a "back pack", the gunslinger and a drag bag so I think I am o.k. I may look into a but pack as well. I think that is what it is called.
