Certainly, we might be dating ourselves here but who remembers the game show “Let’s Make a Deal?” The one where Monty Hall would give you $50 bucks if you had something in your possession like a Q-tip, or a band-aid, or chapstick or even a screwdriver? Folks would frantically dig and the first person to whip that item out got the $50 bucks? Well, I could have won on any of those items if I had my shooting/range bag along with me! Yup, sure could have! Which brings us to the question of what’s in your range bag?
Just a quick look in mine would probably reveal the following, and in alphabetical order just for fun:
Bug Spray (in season)
Choke Tubes (if used)
Choke Tube Wrench (if necessary)
First Aid Kit
Pocket Knife / Leatherman Tool
Shell Pouch (or vest)
And yes, there is probably a stray earring in the bottom somewhere……..And no, I did not forget about Shotgun Shells but I carry those by the case so they are not in the bag, but I guess some folks are more conservative and they could fit in your bag!
As an instructor, I have a few extras like:
Allen Wrenches (for comb adjustments)
Beartooth Recoil Pad Kit
I am sure there are things we all consider necessities but I carry a big bag and try to be prepared for anything! Except sewing, I am drawing the line there, no sewing kit but Monty Hall would probably pay someone $50 bucks for that one!
