equipment for use by anyone in need, including top quality rifles, please ask to
use it! To start out with
Rifle, Service or Match (as discussed on page one) and ammunition.
Magazines, enblock or stripper clips
Safety flag or empty chamber indicator
Shooting Mat or some other kind of ground cover (a blanket or old piece of
carpet will do for starters, we do have loaners also)
Spotting Scope (we have loaners or you may be able to share one from another competitor)
Lunch or a snack (we finish early mid day but if your so inclined)
water (provided each match as it gets hot in the summer)

ear plugs or hearing protection
Equipment you will want
as you progress
good quality spotting scope and stand
Ammunition. Not all ammo
is created equal, buy good quality and if your planning on shooting an
M1 be sure the ammo was designed for its gas system. Ammo is usually available
in .223, .308 and 30-06 at cheap prices, loaner rifle users MUST purchase and
Magazines. You will need
at least two magazines (AR15, M14) enblock clips (M1) or stripper clips (bolt rifles)
for reloading during the rapid fire stages.
It's also nice to have a dedicated magazine for single loading for
slow fire and sighters but this is optional.
sling is better than no sling, service rifles are limited to a web sling
or a M1907 style leather sling.
Empty Chamber Indicator.
is an important and inexpensive $1 safety device (just buy one).
a good shooting mat has a rubber top to hold your elbows in position.
the spotting scope will be one of the most expensive piece's of equipment
you buy. Money spent on a scope is not wasted, usually the more it costs the better
it will be.
home made or production you'll need a stand to be able to see through your
scope in all positions.
Eye Protection or Shooting Glasses. can range from inexpensive to
the sky's the limit. How much are your eyes worth? Do yourself a favor
and protect your eyes!
Ear or Hearing protection. See Shooting glasses, substitute
ears for eyes.
Sooner or later you will want a glove (for comfort). There are many different
styles and prices, find one you like or have one of each.
stool is a nice thing to have, it gives you a place to sit when scoring
(for another shooter), it's also a handy place to store your gear.
A good coat is expensive but money well spent. Basically they are made of three
different materials. Cloth (basic), Cordura (mid grade) and Leather
(top of the line).
