Thanks! I'm just starting out and am going to use this list for my 1st loadout. Plus water and snacks, a booboo kit and IFAK.

My rear bag is Str8 Laced, and barricade bag is a pump pillow.

  Not quite as sophisticated in my load out. I go a bit lighter since I'm not competing. However I did find something that I thought was pretty cool, the Kestrel Drop D3. It looks like a keychain and I attach it to the zipper on my data book. It transmits real time DA via bluetooth to my iPad running Ballistic AE.

My bag is an Eberlestock Gunslinger 2.  Right now I have it set up for winter shooting more than competition work but here is the current loadout:

Surplus British combat shirt
Condor soft shell
Duluth Trading raincoat
Staple gun and staples
Steiner Military Binos
Databook
Pens
Kestrel
Small tool kit
Rite n Rain notepads
550 cord
Self built med kit
Suppressor pouch
Ear Pro w/ batteries
Ammo

Still need:
Wrist coach
Range finder (waiting on SHOT before I buy one)
Going to buy some more compact, lightweight, quality outerwear and store it in the saddle bags that Eberlestock has available.
It pays to be a winner.

Nice!  I have a Gunslinger 2 also, but found it to be too big for my needs.  It allowed me to carry WAY more stuff than I should have been.  Ounces make pounds, pounds make pain, so I ordered up an X4 HiSpeed.  Allows me to carry the gear that I need, and weighs a bunch less.  Since I'm fairly out of shape, that works better for me.

What's in your med kit, Extortion?


Also, check this out for a wrist coach:  http://www.armageddongear.com/Competition-Data-Armband_p_64.html  I picked one up at the Grind.  Until then, I had been using 1.5" masking tape wrapped around my wrist.  The Armageddon Gear product works great.  It looks like a whiteboard, but it's really not.  A whiteboard would suck because you could accidentally rub it against something and erase your dope.  Instead, what they did was they give you two pens - a black one to write with, and a white one that works as an "eraser".  Great piece of gear.  Also, the velcro straps are more comfortable than the elastic bands on a lot of the athletic wrist coaches (Nike, et al).

I Really like my Leica HD-Rs for a rangefinder/bino combo, but it looks like you've already got some quality binos.  The Sig 3000 LRF monocular has gotten some pretty solid reviews thus far, and at $499, it's a steal!

My med kit consists of:

CAT tourniquet
Israeli Bandage
5x9's
LG trauma dressing
Cling Wrap
SAM splint

There are other small less significant items.

As far as the Gunslinger 2,  I'm considering removing all the outerwear and essentially mounting all my equipment on the inside.  Then using the saddle bags to store a pack able rain coat and soft shell.  Looks at Wild Things Gear & Crye Precision.
It pays to be a winner.

I always take a small tool kit (Borka set) with a few small allens for a scope turret.  It sucks when you have a loose ______ (fill in the blank) and can't fix it.  Or a buddy's rig that needs tightening /adjusting..

too much crap, but then again, most of the time i go to matches to help out and i don't get to shoot. when i'm doing that, just in case people need help, i generally have a badger dead level, bore sighter, string and weight for a plum line, levels, and fix it sticks, water, snacks, extra bipod, triad tactical bags, and various other parts and bullshit that falls into the black hole
