    Range Bag Supplies?

    Yesterday at the range the situation came up where I needed a band aid. I know we have a "full on" first aid kit at the range so that is not really the question.

    In my range bag in addition to shooting supplies is always a multi-tool, rags, band aids (now).

    I was wondering what else you guys carry?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Also keep your hands away from the slide when firing ( usually the non trigger hand) and make sure any other shooters using your gun do so as well. My brother lacerated his left hand by having the web behind the slide. I was not watching his grip to correct him. But it only required a band aid.

    A few band-aids and some adhesive tape; small bottle of Break-Free or other lube; a wiping rag; small screwdriver for adjusting sights; spare foam earplugs and eyepro; chamber flags.

    I have a range log I keep in my bag for each firearm I own. I like to keep track of number of rounds fired, type of ammo and any FTF/FTE that occur. Good to have a record of what ammo works well and any that can be a problem.

    I keep a first-aid kit in all my vehicles. Learned that lesson the hard way after having to do some roadside maintenance and lacerating my hand. Since there's a kit in each car, don't need one in the range bag. Speaking of which...

    Guns to be fired
    Ammo for guns
    Hearing protectors
    Uplula reloader
    Staple gun
    Spare staples
    Glo-targets
    Target tape
    Metal punch, screwdrivers, etc., for takedown/repairs
    Gerber FAST knife
    Water, beef jerky

    The Midway range bag handles all that just fine. My sunglasses are eye protection, and I do recommend always wearing a hat of some sort.

    Keep a bottle of saline solution with you. The small CVS type plastic bottles are sterile and cheap. If you have ever had powder residue or dirt blow into an eye (& it can happen even w/ safety glasses on) then it's an item that you'll want to have right there. Especially if you're shooting someplace away from an immediately available clean water source.
