    I usually only go to an indoor range, so it's just:

    Couple handguns (usually just the compact and full sized USPs)
    Ammo
    Rag
    Cleaning Patches
    Break Free
    Eyes
    Earsx2
    Couple extra mags for each

    They have all the tools I could need on-site as well as water, and there's a wendy's across the street.

    :mamoru: I'm getting there to for the indoor range, if I bring a longgun with me too I usually have to bring extra ammo in seperate bag. I like the outdoor range better just back my truck upto my shooting spot :cool:

    .

    Plus theres usually more length to outdoor shooting ranges. The one my dad is a member of has up to about 125 yards until the treeline/hill. It only cocsts him like 25 a year I think and he can use it whenever even if noones there (which is usually the case in in the middle of the week).
