What's in your pistol box?

The title pretty much says it all. What do you keep in your pistol box? Anything out of the ordinary?

You should add at least some cleaner stuff, hand rag, eye protection, backup ear plugs, squib rods, lube, small needle nose pliers or forceps.....

and if you are like me, a ton of other stuff rarely needed if at all.  But you never know....

Don't forget your mousepad. Or whatever you plan to set your pistol on when it is out of case and being used.

In the Army, and Combat Engineers especially, most of us carried at least 50 ft of parachute cord to make lanyards to attach various things to ones person or LBE. The purpose was to make sure the Dummy don't lose nothing, hence the term "dummy cord."  Some habits are hard to break and some habits you don't want to break.

Standard stuff.  When the tall guns outgrew my Pachmyer case my guns and magazines went into  Dillon handgun bags.   After an 18 year layoff I took a while to shoot just out of the box to make sure that I had what I needed to make it through a 2700.    The only thing I see in my box that hasn't been listed is a set of overlays.   There is a Dillon range bag that stays back in the car that pretty much contains a backup for everything.

FWIW the one thing that a winter and spring of shooting out of my box missed.  ROSIN!  Sun came came out, I started sweating, and I needed something to dry my hands.  Ordered a couple of cans as soon as ! got home.
