      Do you have or use a range bag and if so what's in it..

      I am looking at put that just right Range Bag together. At times I see some with enough stuff to open a gunsmith shop.
      In my case I lately I just grab a few targets, some tape , a few boxes of ammo and my ear muffs.
      And of course the rifle or pistol of the day and some speed loaders and magazines.
      So what do you take?

      My range bag consists of a backpack with a set of electric ear pro and a bottle of foam ear plugs. A set of safety glasses and sunglasses since I shoot outdoors a lot. A Leatherman tool (firearms specific) with common tools and a set of Hex & Torx wrenches for any adjustments or repairs. Several Sharpie markers for writing on targets. A package of wet wipes and a rain poncho. A few other things, but those are items used most often in mine.

      I have a Black and Decker Mastercart rolling toolbox.

      Glasses, weight gloves, muffs, foam plugs [enough for wife and me]
      multibit driver, sae/metric allen + torx wrenches, punches

      Hoppes, Froglube, cleaning tools, rags
      Targets, staple gun, staples, tape, marker, pencils, bullseye stickers, small sandbag rest.

      I want to add a monopod too.

      Oh, and bring water and a snack, and maybe a couple guns with ammo.

      This is what I use since the range is a longer drive.

      But I also use a Craftsman Tool Tote to haul the essentials to the bench - mainly ammo and basics:
      personal safety gear - eyes and ears, weight gloves [fingerless], targets, staple gun, sight tools, cleaning rag, Hoppes.

      **forgot - empty "Planters" container for brass.

      My bag holds my Otis cleaning kits, spare targets, stapler, small tools, binoculars, ear muffs, over glasses eye protection, wire (holds those used milk bottles filled with water), box of staples, a few small hand towels for my pistol, gun oil, roll of masking tape. Ammo is kept in one of those 7.62 metal cans.
      Anything else I might need is in a bag in my truck which stays in the truck.

      I have a small bag I bought at Cabelas on sale for 12.95. In it are
      Shooting glasses
      Ear Muffs
      Cleaning rag and small cleaning kit (hoppes, gun oil, swabs, brushes etc.)
      Small tool kit with screwdrivers, pliers, mallet

      Targets are kept separately. And I have a locked case for my gun.

      I agree with most tools, rags, duck tape, stappler eye and ear peotection. But am I the only one that takes a small EMS bag, or even a little frist aid kit.

      Nope, I have one in with my S&W Victory target pistol, my HK 9mm, three mags for each, rags, pistol covers, electronic muffs, tools, markers and spare ammo for each.
      I also have a roll of sticky center target covers tied to the outside of the bag.

      My guns are in a lockable hard case. My canvas bag contains ammo, earmuffs, safety glasses, stapler, small screwdriver (for sights), small field glasses (to view targets), pen and notepad, range membership badge to wear (no badge, no shoot). I also take a target frame and 25 yd paper targets.

      No, because of my med condition I usually have a med kit nearby. I use the same backpack for hiking and the range.

      Mine has a 1911 bushing wrench also.

      Let's see:

      Spare mags for the guns I usually shoot stay in the bag
      Allen wrench tool
      Leatherman tool
      Small bottle of Hoppes oil
      Small towel
      Screwdriver with hollow ground tips that fit in the handle (to tighten grip screws and for sight adjustment)
      Squib rod
      Small mirror and flashlight (to look for squib - lay mirror down, place barrel over mirror, shine light onto mirror so that it reflects into barrel to see squib.)
      Masking tape
      8 1/2 X 11" printed targets that I tape to larger silhouette targets (cause I'm cheap that way and so I can shoot the drills I prefer).
      A few pens
      Wet Wipes and Lens Cleaning wipes
      Eyes and Ears
      I don't have a first-aid kit and I know I should. I really need to take a first aid course, it's been too many years and I need an update.

      I carry pretty much what everyone else is carrying. Mind you I don't got to a range. I am lucky enough to live on enough property that I set up my own range. I do add a few things besides the items mentioned above. I keep about 20 Feet of paracord, a fire starter, a 10 foot square piece of poly, a rain poncho and a VHF ham radio. Just so I can call home for help if I need it. I'm in a pretty remote are so my gear has to be a bit different. By the way the paracord is great for hanging cans of cheap shaving cream from and shooting at. Its quite enjoyable.

      Depends on who's looking for me, and why.

      I have a range bag from my subscription to the NRA. It has hearing protection, some recoil springs, a brass bolt wrapped in tape (in case of a squib), a length of 2" diameter maple to use with the brass bolt, targets, a stapler & staples, and the guns and ammo that I am using for the trip to the range.
