  • At least 2 magazines (3 or 4 recommended)
  • At least 200 rounds of ammunition (no steel core, steel or bi-metal jacketed ammo)
  • Strong side Hip holster for pistol, inside or outside waistband (OWB is less tiring for the number of draws we'll be doing).  Pistol holster must be in the 3-o'clock position for right-handers, or 9-o'clock position for left-handers.  For safety reasons, to avoid muzzling others, no other carry position or means of carry will be allowed.
  • Magazine pouches
  • Gun belt strong enough to support weight of pistol and magazines
  • Concealment garment (jacket, vest, loose fitting shirt, long enough to conceal your pistol while holstered). We'll be outdoors, so consider something light and breathable during warm weather months.
  • Eye and ear protection
  • Plenty of drinking water
  • Snacks or a quick lunch


  • ​Knee pads, if you wish to use them for the shooting while kneeling exercise.
