Stuff I'm Packing for my first trip to Perry

Post by Rob Kovach on 7/1/2012, 11:39 pm

I want you guys to look over this list and speak up if I left something off:

Stuff for bringing to the firing line:


  • My gun box with all my usual tools and stuff.
  • Enough ammo for a 2700 with some alibi's
  • staple gun and staples
  • Pasters
  • Sunscreen
  • bug spray
  • plastic bags for gun box if it rains
  • Folding chair with one of those shade attachments
  • my normal outdoor match cooler with drinks and protien shakes
  • luck

Stuff I'm bringing for staying in the huts:


  • 2 weeks worth of clothes so I can change into dry unsweaty clothes after I shoot
  • Bedroll
  • Pillow
  • Joe Fobes' air conditioner
  • fan
  • PJ's
  • Shower shoes
  • toiletry kit with soap for showers
  • money for commercial row.

Can anybody think of anything I'm forgetting?

If I recall correctly you won't need the stapler or pasters.

Another nice to have item for the hut is a small throw rug to put on the floor next
to your bed.

Are you going to shoot Canton this weekend on your way to Perry?
Good luck!

You don't need to carry all your ammo to the line- only what you will shoot that day. A geezer cart is nice to carry everything in.

There is laundry on site so you may want to pack lighter?
Money for commercial row X - 2
You can leave the luck at home, you'll do fine without it

forget the staples,stapler and pasters, At perry you shoot a full sized new target every time,add extra ammo as you will need some for the prelim match which will be 3 NMC so 90 more, + some for alibis if needed, and more in case you have a gun problem and need to use the test range. a geezer cart of some kind will be of great help carrying your box, targets chair and cooler. A poncho for you if it rains, hat, brass catcher or a pickup tool, you will have to remove your brass from the range even the 22. flashlight for night trips to the head.

Extra sweat towels. I cover my ammo and guns from the sun while scoring. There is little or no shade, but you can put your ammo under the bench. You shoot towards the north, so the sun will rise on your right. Factor the sun position against which relay you are shooting (i.e. 1st relay, sun on the right. 2nd relay, sun overhead, 3rd relay, sun more towards your left.) You will shoot a different relay every day.

I used to take a broom or vacuum cleaner (extra bags) to clean out the hut. Some wasp spray. A couple of clamp on work lights for reading. A folding table to clean guns, etc. A tool kit with nails, hammer, chord, etc. for minor room mods. A comfortable chair with back support for the hut. Something to cover windows (keeps the sun out during the day). You may need an indoor clothes line. Alarm clock (runs independent of hut electrical power). Radio. Flashlight. A small shovel or entrenching tool in case you get flooding rains. A rain jacket and umbrella. A wide-brimmed straw hat. At least one spare pair of shoes. Bungee chord to tie down your gun box to the bench.

Some more items to consider:

Small lamp (if you read in bed and won't bother hutmates)
Flashlight (to find the latrine at night, and if power fails)
Air conditioner (forget the fan)
Extra ammo for range alibi refires (just in case the range shuts down)
Pencil that writes on wet scorecards (ballpoint pens just smear)
Bug spray (mosquitoes are Perry's prominent winged creatures)
Small first aid kit
