Share your match day equipment list.

Post by zanemoseley on 8/15/2017, 8:47 pm

As posted before I'm taking the clamps out of my 3 pistol strong case but will still use it for the scope storage/stand and storage of other stuff. I just got a great deal on a brand new Pelican 1610 case to securely store my pistols, it's a bit on the large side but I couldn't pass up the deal. I'm trying to get a handle on where I want to put everything, with the pelican once you cut the foam you're kind of locked in. I thought of putting 4 pistols, all ammo and a couple micellaneous items in the pelican case but then it's going to be pushing 43 pounds, most places I shoot you park close to the range so it shouldn't be bad. One thing is if I ever fly it will be convenient for the ammo and pistols to be in one case but I suppose I could always put the ammo in my lugage.

So I was hoping you guys could share what you take to matches so I don't leave anything out. I got where I have so many items to remember I just made a list in my phone.

Bullseye Equipment:

.45 1911 & backup

.45 Magazines

.22 1911 & backup

.22 Magazines

.22 conversion wrench & mag loader

25 Yard .45 ammo

50 Yard .45 ammo

.22 ammo

Spotting scope

Extra batteries

Brass catcher

Pistol mat

Ear plugs

Ear muffs

Oil

Pen

Clear chamber indicator

Stapler w/ extra staples

Pasters

Clipboard

Overlays

Umbrella

Jacket

Rain coat

Rubber boots

Water

Food

Cash

Hand wipes


Fan & Extension Cord

Double check it, but I am pretty sure that TSA regulations prohibit having the pistol and ammo in the same case, even though locked.

Just looked over the TSA guidelines.


  • Small arms ammunition, including ammunition not exceeding .75 caliber and shotgun shells of any gauge, may be carried in the same hard-sided case as the firearm.

Bushnell Competitor 10X Spotting Scope and first gen mounting system,
45 Pistol and three mags,
22 (Nelson) Pistol and three mags,
EIC 22 Pistol in a gun rug in the bottom of the box and three mags,
Second Barrel with iron sight rib for Nelson,
Brass rod for knocking out squib loads,
ECI,
Cleaning Kit (Ziplock bag with bore snakes, patches, and silicone rags)
Winchester cleaning kit rod (handle contains rod and brushes),
Separate 25 cal brush on dedicated handle for 22 chamber scrub,
Staple gun and staples,
Clip board,
Two overlay's (I finally got some!!!)
Pen, Sharpie, and a Pencil,
Masking Tape,
Brass screen/deflector and clips,
Two revolver speed loaders for K frame and six 38 special snap caps,
Merit Optical Eye piece,
Safety Glasses,
Head set/hearing protection and spare plugs in a small container,
Two different size flathead screw drivers,

Nelson tool,
Nelson parts box with springs and parts and allen head wrench's for dot mounts and triggers,
1911 barrel bushing wrench,

And a piece of carpet to lay guns and stuff on. Keeps scratches away.

I set it up to where if I'm at home, if I'm at a match, if I'm at practice, if I'm shooting or just cleaning, what ever it is that I need is there in the box. That way I'm not in a position where I'm left saying "well I need X but it's at home or it's not here".

Dang you guys are kitchen sink shooters. My box is naked in comparison. You remind me of a guy I used to call "gadget" because he had everything and I mean everything. You guys are gonna do more shoulder damage from carrying your equipment boxes than from shooting ;l)

I feel like I carry the minimum I need for what ever situation I fall into. The box isn't too terribly heavy, and it's not all crammed in there either. Plenty of space to get what I need when I need it. And everything has a spot where it goes. I don't have to look for anything.

A lot of the time I drive 2 hours each way for a match, it sure sucks not having what you need when you're there although often other people will let you borrow what you don't have.

I have a lot in my box too and some items are heavier than needed like an oversized spotting scope which I got cheap and a heavy staple gun I already had.   I can't imagine what it would feel like if I had back up guns  Rolling Eyes

To lessen the shoulder damage John, I use a golf bag strap set which goes over both shoulders. https://www.golfdiscount.com/izzo-dual-strap?size=15132&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3OaglOrb1QIVBwhpCh0f7guWEAQYAyABEgLXvfD_BwE&kwid=productads-adid^74144244737-device^c-plaid^62592842252-sku^DS008190-adType^PLA

I carry about the same except being an iron sight shooter I have a carbide lamp to soot the sight, and a can of Firm Grip powder.  I’m also bat blind at reading distances so I have a pair of folding eye glasses for scoring targets and adjusting sights etc.

Everything not directly related to the pistol/revolver (like rain gear, snacks, water etc.) I carry in an old rifle shooter’s shooting stool.  Also gives me a place to park my butt from time to time.

My range bag and box are packed with tons of stuff I usually don't need - but if I leave any of those items at home, the Murphy's law kicks in. If I only take two boxes of .22 instead of three, there's always someone next to me who runs out of ammo and needs little help. If I leave my backup gun at home, my only gun I brought that day has a broken ejector. If I take that big spray can of a sight black from my bag, my front sight shines in the sun like a diamond. Etc, etc, etc, the list goes on and on and on. Screwdrivers, punches, bore snakes, dowels. Overflows to multiple pockets in my 5.11 range vest. 

Oh well... One thing I always carry, but thank God, never had to use, is an individual Israeli wound dressing.

Wow, you guys carry a lot of stuff.  I don't even use my box anymore.  My gun, some ammo, muffs and glasses go into a small backpack now.
