Have you ever been in a course or at the shooting range when something unusual happens, and you realize you should upgrade your gear? Have you ever felt that something is missing from your bag?
Today, we will share a list of 7 accessories that you should consider having or bringing with you to your training sessions at the range.
High-quality optics, such as red dot sights, holographic sights, or scopes, can enhance your accuracy, speed in target acquisition, and overall shooting performance.
It’s never a wise decision to stick to old-school methods in a life-threatening situation, so you should seriously consider equipping optics on your carry pistol.
- Hearing Protection:
Most shooting ranges offer the necessary hearing protection for shooters, but I encourage you to have your own.
Nowadays, there’s a wide variety of ear muffs available, and finding ones that match your needs and budget won’t be difficult.
- Eye Protection:
Similar to our discussion about hearing protection, you might also consider having your own shooting glasses.
To be honest, I like mine so much that I even wear them daily.
- Gun Cleaning Kit:
When it comes to a tool that’s meant to safeguard your life and that of your family, it’s imperative to maintain it properly. I always carry a maintenance kit in my range bag, including a pick set, cleaning brushes, CLP (Cleaner, Lubricant, Protectant), and cloths.
- Range Bag:
And of course, don’t forget the range bag itself. After all, you wouldn’t carry your gear in a supermarket bag, would you?
Everything becomes better with proper illumination. As a habit, I consistently carry three flashlights with me every day: a mounted one, a compact version in my pocket, and a larger one inside my bag. I can’t recall a single instance where I regretted adhering to this practice.
- First Aid Kid
If you possess the knowledge to inflict wounds, you should also possess the knowledge to provide remedies. If you are equipped to take a life, it is equally essential to be equipped to save one.
These top 7 must-have accessories cover a range of essential items that every shooter should consider adding to their collection. From improving accuracy and safety to enhancing comfort and organization, these accessories can greatly enhance your shooting experience.
