    Yeah, I have at least "A few" holsters as well.

    Same, got a pair of them, and while I still prefer earplugs for serious rifle work, electronic ear pro are what I use almost all the time now.

    It comes with a sling ring and the holster is extra.

    Eye and hearing protection are necessities IMHO, you get them BEFORE you purchase a firearm. I like hinged carrying cases, my range boxes are just ordinary tool boxes.

    a really good set of binos is really nice for many things.

    It didn't work out that way when & where I grew up, much less first time firing a firearm - including participating in a NRA program as youth, both my brother and me, on indoor & outdoor ranges.

    But I can say that about helmets when riding bicycles as well.

    I don't know if I would call this my favorite, but my loading and range logs are very important to me. I noticed that I spend a lot of time contemplating what I've done at the range and the loading bench.

    It's prescription eyeglasses for me. I can't see well enough to shoot anymore without them. Next is good hearing protection as I would like to save what is left of my hearing.

    I took your advice and ordered an MTM box to check out. They are pretty nice, just ordered more.

    I am thinking of labeling the various ladder loads as shown below. There will be less than 10 of each, so I thought staggering them would be a good approach. Any better labeling ideas?

    Thanks

    That is actually a great idea. I normally just make notes on a piece of paper with which row is which load and use the hinge as reference for top. I like yours better.

    Seriously?? Well, I suppose if you're at the range doing mag dumps with your AK, one would come in handy in the absence of a stiff breeze, but....seriously?

    My solutions to a hot barrel is twofold; 1-don't be in such a hurry to use up your ammo, and 2- take several guns and let one cool off while you heat up another one.

    As for accessories, my four favorites are my reloading equipment and reloading supplies, and I'm not talking about magazine loaders, I've always done that by hand. Another great accessory is my Walkers electronic muffs, and I suppose I could include my pickup truck as an accessory, because I use it to haul myself and guns to and from the range.

    Calipers for group chasing, and a really nice case for my pistols

    I probably wouldn't shoot without ear protection or eye protection, but nothing has improved my gun handling skills more than getting a holster.

    Electronic ear muffs. Took a long time for me to try them, but boy do I prefer them now over old style muffs and plugs.

    The gold old basic fifty cal can used in conjunction with adhesive labels and a piece of transparent shipping tape over the label to protect it. This has done wonders to keep my stuff organized in a manner that allows me to find what I'm looking for while also protecting whatever I have put inside.

    If I had to choose a third I'd be torn between my Lee loading stand or various Maglula products.

    A syringe of lube...I learned the hard way at an outdoor class that it's a must for tight 1911's. After about 300 rounds on a dusty range, a little lube in the slide rails, on the barrel hood at the front of the ejection port and on the barrel where it interfaces with the bushing is a must.

    IF a syringe of lube doesn't count, I'd go with holster and mag pouches.

    I use the .50 cans also but prefer business card magnets for the labels.

    Favorite accessories - binos or spotting scope and Uplula

    Finally getting used to Red Dots on my pistols, have started buying guns that are optic ready. As I get older this helps with accuracy more than anything else I've done
