    What is in your range bag?! Lets compare and contrast and if needed the reasons you have it if is unorthodox. Specify pistol or rifle!

    Both pistol and rifle...

    The usual suspects, gun, ammo, holsters, eyes x2, ears x2...

    Unorthodox? Depends who you ask...Binocular, hand tools, screwdriver, allen set, multi tool, pen, pad, first aid kit, camera, wrist wraps, gloves, batteries, flashlight, scope dial charts, gum, speed loaders, speed strips, stiripper clips, cleaning patches and a small bottle of Hoppe's...

    I think I need a bigger bag...:p

    @vincent sounds like you may need a bigger bag lol

    By un-orthodox I mean some thing that would not traditionally be kept in said bag but found to be useful.

    I would add to vincent's list a range finder....the laser kind - not the "where's the range" type. I've got a Nuvi for that.

    Water bottle, too.

    zip lock bag for putting brass in, amazon box (you know the small boxes they send when you order something from amazon) I find them to be the perfect size to put ammo in. That is probably as far as unorthodox goes.

    Other than that a 1911, baby eagle, u22 neos, package of ear plugs, muff style ear protection, 2 pairs of shooting glasses, .22LR ammo, 9mm ammo, .45ACP ammo. a Winchester target stand which sucks by the way.

    And next time I go shooting it will probably have 7.62x54R ammo in it. But the mosin won't fit.

    Nothing right now. Most of the time there is at least 1 box of ammo for every gun I plan on bringing to the range that day, two ea. hearing and eye protection, small tool kit, small cleaning kit, oil, and clean rags.

    Don't forget staple gun/staples, t shirts for range mats, paper plates and a sharpie if you run out of targets, zip lock bags, log book and pens, duct tape.

    Same stuff. 5 Pink glock 17 mags, ammo, eyes, ears, tac gloves, etc.
    Since the gun I shoot with isn't my own, I don't have that in my bag.

    The unorthodox stuff: hand lotion (hands get dry after shooting), subway giftcard (gotta eat), air horn (I don't know why I have that).

    I now use an aerosol can of spray adhesive instead of staples.... quick, easy, and the targets pull away from the backing without tearing, too. The down side is that if you're going to keep the target for some reason, the back ends up sticky.
