    You guys wear clothes? I like feeling the cool breeze and the hot sizzle of brass on my skin.

    Definitely clean. Don't care if it's 100 degrees, I'll shave, shower, and put on clean clothes. Even if I get soaking wet with sweat and dirty, I want to start out clean.

    I like clean clothes so I wear clean clothes.

    I'll usually wear my 'home clothes', which are items that are starting to wear out and I typically only wear - you guessed it - around the house and yard. If those are not mostly clean, just a pair of clean jeans and a t-shirt.

    Timmy, a hot casing behind the glasses is bad enough. I wouldn't want to add dancing to my range repertoire.

    I have been to the range in a suit a couple of times. I snuck away on my lunch break. Hehehehe

    When you got to the range for a match or extended sessions, do you wear clean clothes or put on something already dirty?
    I wear clean clothes....every day.

    That's basic hygiene, bro.

    Clean, freshly laundered ..... but not necessarily a nice shirt and nice jeans. I have some older jeans that get passed into the work clothes pile, as well as some shirts that over time have been spotted with paint or spaghettie sauce. They're clean, they've been through the laundry, but they're on the down side of the pile.

    When going to the outdoor range, I usually wear clothes that are I do not mind getting down and dirty in. Instead of my usual leather coat, I will instead wear a Carhart work jacket in place of it.

    I have clothes that I specifically wear when I go shooting if it's an outdoor range(no, not some tacticool mall-ninja, sniper wanna-be gear). Stuff that has been beaten up, not exactly what I would consider "going out on the town" clothing, because I may be shooting prone with one of my rifles and I don't want to ruin nice clothes. If it's an indoor range where everything is going to be relatively clean I like to dress like I would on any other day if I were going somewhere and wanted people to not think I'm homeless or a slob.

    When I go to the range, it's a fair distance away. I always wear clean every day clothes. I do this for a variety of reasons.

    One, I hate wearing dirty clothes.

    Two, I put clean clothes on every day. A habit hard to break.

    Three, I run errands after the range trip. Even if I am dirty and smell like gunpowder, I don't look like a homeless bum who should be thrown out of the place I'm shopping at. I'm less conspicuous after an extended range trip is all, but I have a smile on my face afterwards.

    ditto. Everyone was watching me in my suit and tie......whispering...."Fed?"....."LEO".....as I was leaving I just muttered...."CIA". Everyone gave me extra special attention after that.
