    What tools do you keep in your range bag?

    I'm just curious about what tools everyone keeps in their range bags? Right now, I just keep a multi-bit screwdriver but I've never needed it at the range. As I refine/streamline my bag contents, what else would be good to have?

    I just keep a multi bit screwdriver set, but will be adding a cleaning rod after a few issues the last time out.

    My field "range bag" is just a cleaning kit, clp, rags, and a leatherman.

    A small multi tool
    A x-acto knife
    Bore Snake
    CLP
    Flashlight
    Tape
    A watch
    Hand sanitizer
    Disposable rain parka, just in case

    A bunch of other misc junk that I should just take out but don't...I should just get a new smaller range bag and then I'd get rid of a bunch of the junk!

    Besides a basic cleaning kit, I keep an Armorers kit with an armorer tool and extra Glock parts. Leatherman Black Wave is the only tool I have needed.

    Multi-bit screwdriver. Multi-torx tool. Multi-hex tool. Bore snakes and cleaning gear, including a little squeeze bottle for CLP.

    Range Bag (in addition to all the usual range-bag crap): Gerber Multi-plier, a couple of small screwdrivers for adjusting sights or prying out a stuck case, a piece of cleaning rod (in case the screwdriver didn't get the case out), bore-snake, the keys for the couple of guns I own with those idiotic internal locks.

    Tool box that I always take with me to the range: all my cleaning stuff, set of punches, small mallet, vice-grips, needle-nose pliers, various screwdrivers, AK sight adjustment tool, some other misc. odds and ends that come in handy now and then.
