Took my maybe soon to be gf to the range and she asked if I had enough stuff.
Here's an idea: keep that portable gun cleaning shop there at home and take only bare essentials to the range.
i use that remington oil too
You are far too organized.
Let me guess, this is what you take to shoot ARs.
I don't even take any cleaning supplies to the range. I go out there to shoot, for fucks sake, not clean my guns with different scenery.
My range bag has paper towels, a screw driver, a broken shell extractor, and a sweatshirt for when my shoulder starts to hurt
how the fuck will all of that be of any use in a single range trip?
That's like a SHTF range bag set-up right there. Add some MRE's and some water, and you'd be ready for nuclear devastation right there under a shooting bench.
How many guns do you usually take with you to go shooting?
Here's what I usually take to the range with me:
Range bag (obviously)
Various targets: paper, shoot-n-c
Several boxes of ammo
Sight tool if I bring my AK
I think that's it. If I somehow get a broken shell lodged in the barrel I'm just done shooting that gun for the day, but I haven't had any catastrophic failures like that my entire life.
are those 12ga practice rounds or what?
I have my leatherman multitool/knife/plyers on me all the time, and in my range bag I have a hex multitool, maybe a bore rod and some old patches and tape. everything else is just ear/eye protection and ammo
I only bring some CLP, tape, eyes/ears, a sharpie, and some ammo (Usually I just jack targets or draw right on the cardboard stands). Beyond that it's only a towel and the .50bmg can that the above goes in (towel goes ontop of the can to use as a rest).
I bring guns and ammo cans. I'm there to have fun, not to bore the shit out of myself. I lug around enough shit as it is.
oh, and if it's a 10/22, I bring some punches and a screw driver just in case.
i only take a cleaning rod.in case of a stuck empty in the chamber.though it`s only happen once
staple gun + staples
lol @ thread backfire
but i doubt he actaully brings all that shit with him. probably she saw it after he took her back to his place
I have a spray can of clp in my range bag. I've yet to need it. Bring extra eyes and ears, bring a small notepad and a pen, maybe some stickers to use for target pasting or making targets.
Do you need a punch set or qtips at the range?
Today I went and shot, AR-15, Colt Diamond Back, Smith Wesson Chief, Smith Wesson Airlight, Remington 700, Henry Acu-Bolt, GSG-5, Springfield XD 40, and a Ruger Mk III
I spend a good 8-10hrs at a range in one day
Usually at least 5
Yea I have a smaller tackle box with the essentials in it.
awesome kit. rivals mine. Do you have the good rods though?
Yeah, sounds like he's just a douche who's bragging or something...
