    Have a tourniquet in the truck. Bought 3-4 after taking a Stop the Bleed class. The class was great for situations we might encounter. Even having my wife as a nurse I wanted some training. Carrying a tourniquet is easier than carrying my wife/nurse.

    And a TK doesnt nag, give you the side eye when you go to the gun store, etc. LOL

    Unfortunately, a lot of us only get to shoot at ranges where they get pissy if you fire more than one shot every 2 seconds.

    Vote with your feet. My preferred range is 70 minutes from my front door. (Proteq). Its worth the drive because I can do what I want, with no BS from neutered RSO via corporate policies. For me, even when the RSOs (the owner and his son) are around, they ENCOURAGE safe shots at WHATEVER speed is appropriate for the drill at hand.

    Your limitations are self imposed.

    Being a volunteer RSO at a club has its perks. You get a lot of range time AND you get range time when no one else is around. We get to use the range on closed days and outside normal operating hours.



    When you're the RSO it is your range and you run it as you see fit.

    Unfortunately the 2 second/shot rule has to be put into place because of inexperienced folks that come out (with an obvious lack of marksmanship ability) yet still want to be Steven Seagal or John Wick (for you young'uns). Ranges open to the public are just frightful. https://www.ingunowners.com/forums/t...ning-lack.html

    If you can barely keep it on paper at 7 yards during slow fire, doing a mag dump might be fun but it is hardly responsible and/or safe. Ever hand the keys to a sixteen-year old and tell them to go ahead and see what happens when they mash the pedal to the floor?

    Regulars and those that display competency get a break at our range.


    I also carry a trauma bag when on duty. It might be overkill, but if the need ever arose I'm sure I would be glad I had it.

    I also usually carry a bamboo skewer in my tool kit. It has come in handy a couple of times for bore-checking and holds up fairly well to hammering.

    I've started carrying enough stuff in my regular range bag that I have started carrying a second smaller bag that is dedicated to ammo only. It makes a big difference on those days when I'm shooting a lot of 45.

    I'm kind of surprised only a couple of folks have mentioned chamber flags and Sharpies.

    I also carry and extra set of batteries for my electronical gadgetry in one of my pockets. 2032, AA, AAA, 123, 1/3N.

    Even if I function-check at home, it isn't a surprise when I get to the range and find a reticle flashing.

    ...... too much stuff.
    Seriously, my range bag was getting so heavy I needed a 2 wheel dolly cart. So I've reduced to just the bare essentials needed for that day at the range.
