Post you range bag checklist
Went to the range last Tuesday with some friends and brought everything but my targets. I have a checklist for when I go camping but don't have one for going to the range. Thought I should get one started and wanted to see if anyone else has a list already or could share what they bring.
So here I go, please post what you bring to the range so I can get some ideas for a good checklist. Maybe list indoor range, outdoor range, BLM?

My reminder on my bag.... (keys to case locks)
Guns, dogs and home alarms. Opponents are all of a sudden advocates once their personal space is violated.
"Those who cannot remember the posts are condemned to repeat them"
I wish I had a dollar for every time someone used a cliché
Sunscreen for BLM lol, it gets crazy hot out there. A hat is a good idea too.
Along with that folding table, bring some lawn chairs.
Want to Buy/Trade:
Looking for a Browning 1911 .380
Up for Trade:
Beretta 85F Cheetah and Springfield XDm .45
Well, i jut packed up to go shooting and was killing a little time looking around on CG.
I would add:
white cotton towel - Good to wipe off sweaty hands , wipe off gun.
Blue micro fiber towel - I like to lay my gun on the towel when not in use(reloading/ target change)
Looked like either a bad luck ricochet, or a round hit some spray paint cans that had been dumped out there. Everyone swears that they weren't using steel.
Luckily it was small, everyone ceased fire to help put it out and after we were done we even picked out the trash in the area.
Shovel and TP for BLM land. Someones gonna need it.
Pop up canopy and empty sandbags to fill to hold it down if it gets windy.
"Yeah, like... well, I just want to slap a hippie or two. Maybe even make them get jobs."
I was going over this thread to help me put together a list that would include
the regular range, benchrest, BLM, and appleseed. I consolidated what others had posted
in the thread and added a few things. I'm sure things are missing so feel free to add.
Most of this stuff you wont need for the shooting you're doing on a given day, but I was
trying to be comprehensive and cover as many things as possible.
