    I have a range kit, a bag that has tools in case I have to doctor/adjust the guns I take to the firing range or hunting. In my kit is a set of gunsmith screwdivers, punches (brass & steel), linemans' & needlenose pliers, steel wool (000), leather pad, gun lube, Bore Snake and bore cleaner. The lineman's pliers I use in lieu of a small hammer. What do you have in your range kit?

    PS I also have a one piece range rod but it does not fit in the bag:p .

    well whenever I take my guns out, I take a small nike duffel bag. It has that hoppes range kit with a multi-piece rod, various cleaning parts, tools, work towels etc. it doesnt take up much room, and since I never have any problems at the range with an SKS, I never really have to use my kit. I think I have the bare minimum in my kit.

    I have a Michaels range bag which contains tape, patching tape, some small tools for quick repair and cleaning, a Swiss Army-type knife, an expanded first aid kit, shooting gloves, spare foam ear protectors, and a smaller bag inside which contains a Walther P22, ammo, and various cleaning accessories and tools also. Pretty much everything I'd need to support a typical day at the range.

    The foam ear protectors became a staple after I was at the range one day and a guy had his kids there with NO ear protection.

    I make sure I've always got aspirin, some cleaning patches, an assortment of screw drivers, and a few dollars just in case I forget my wallet. When you get to be my age...

    I have a nail in my back pocket in case I have to doctor/adjust the Glock I bring to the range. :neener:

    Someday I might have to tote the gun back out to the Honda and add some more lube off the dipstick... :D

    Forgot to mention the walmart bags or discarded clay pidgeon boxes for picking up empty brass and hulls when people leave.

    I got all the way up to the range one day (28 miles one way @ 45mph), and found out that my firing pin spring was not in my pistol.. :eek: :banghead: :uhoh:

    If I'm going away from "civilization", I tend to carry more...

    Also have GoJo hand cleaner in the truck, first aid kit, alcohol hand cleaner, napkins, some plastic silverware, oil, mercon-dexron, sand bags for shooting.

    Range bag has also doubled as a shooting rest.

    I'm also known to give ear plugs to those beside me who put their hands over their ears while the other shoots or when I go to shoot.
