Put an old towel in there to use as a mat for your guns. Keep them off the surface of whatever the range has.

I'm new at this too but I would definately have a small cleaning kit or at least a borebrush if your planning to go through a lot of ammo. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I remember reading something about semi-autos and chamber tolerances, something about the ammo casing fits tight in the chamber as acp ammo lacks a rim on the shell casing to stabalize it. To me that means powder buildup can cause the gun to jam. On a personel note I learned on my first time out, at least with my 45, that after about 50 rounds you have to give the barrel some time to cool or the gun will jam too.

Get a bigger range bag. Mine is a compact pistol kit in that stores everything in the handle...

What ever you put in your range bag is up to you. But remember to keep it simple. If you are lugging around a bunch of stuff just because you think you have to have it. You more then likely do not need it.

I carry the following in my range bag:

Small cleaning kit
Screwdriver set
Small hand towel
Small hammer with brass punch
targets
tape and staple gun (extra staples)
Glasses
ear plugs and/or ear muffs
Spare mags
ammo
Flashlight

in a American Eagle shooting bag.

I'm getting back into shooting after a long time away. A few lessons I've already learned:
Tools: a decent set of screwdrivers or the like. I have a bit driver with a bunch of bits I bought specifically for range use. Allen set of some type. A small crescent wrench and needle nose pliers.
Cleaning rod. I had a stuck case once and I had to have the range officers scrounge until they found one, no more of that.
A few empty ziploc bags. I keep my brass & these are helpful for sorting. I would be willing to be that you can come up with other uses as well.
Clean towel and/or rags.
Pen, Pencil, Sharpie & a notepad of some sort.
I carry a second bag (old kids bookbag) for various target related stuff (when needed). In it are my sandbag rests, a various targets, staple gun, Metal spinner target & a rubber mallet to pound it in with (beats using a rock).

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

In addition to the standard stuff, I have a pair of heavy duty clamps for clamping up my target, and a roll of tape. I also keep in there a sharpie marker.
