    Ah you see that will never happen. I put the eye patch on during gun fights because nobody will aim for a bad eye. If I do get hit then I head towards the nearest body of water with my snorkel while ditching both left boots (this throws off the enemy)

    Way too much stuff. But, oddly enough - never enough ammo.

    Let's see... I have a milk crate with targets, couple pairs of ears,sand bags, a can of spray adhesive, and usually bino's or my spotting scope. I generally bring 2 range boxes 1 full of ammo, the other for brass, a small tool and a small dropper of oil and a big brush. Throw in half a dozen rifles and at least 3 pistols. Sometimes my little .22 spinner targets or a big hunk o steel for the .50

    Oh... and usually my son.

    I just got my first range bag about an hour ago. Midway had one on sale. Right now it has eyes, ears, a leatherman, flashlight, a lighter, and some 550 cord.

    You need "The Big Iron On His Hip" and "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance."

    "Paladin" would also be a worthy addition.

    Chuck Norris, that way I don't have to use any ammo, I just watch him roundhouse-kick the crap out out of my target. He's pretty pissed by the time I let him out of the bag.

    When I first saw the title of this thread I too looked in my bag and found similar goodies such as duct tape, handcuffs, chloroform, latex gloves, condoms, lube, a slap jack, and my autographed 8x10 from Ted Bundy. Then after reading more posts realized we were supposed to be talking about raNGe bags.[rolleyes]

    Only on NES could a thread about range bags have me laughing out loud to the point that my dogs are looking at me like I've lost my mind...

    So I'm guessing Bill is a guy from whom you wouldn't want to accept a "tic-tac"?
