    Get a set of picks.
    I swear, every group shoot, SOMEONE ends up borrowing one to extract a round, or some such thing.

    Harbor Freight - about a buck on sale.

    Tourniquet is a must.

    A hole in the wrong place can bleed you out real quick.

    I keep the following (basically a blowout kit). Pretty much the bare minimum in my opinion to help with implementing the MARCH algorithm.

    Massive Hemorrhage
    CAT Tourniquet and/or SOF-T Wide Tourniquet
    QuikClot Hemostatic Gauze
    Z-fold Compressed Gauze (to pack after the hemostatic, if necessary)
    Israeli Bandage/pressure dressing

    Airway Management
    NPA #28 w/ lube (to help keep airway clear)

    Respiratory Management
    Hyfin Vented Chest Seals (for penetrating trauma to chest to help prevent tension pneumothorax)
    NAR Decompression needle (not for me--for use by somebody else with proper training, if we're unlucky enough to need it and they don't have their own)

    Circulation

    Head Injury and Hypothermia
    Mylar blanket (helps prevent shock)

    PPE
    Nitrile gloves x3 pair
    (already wearing safety glasses, probably)
    Trauma shears
    Medical tape

    Separate Boo Boo Kit
    Band Aids (a handful in a few sizes)
    Neosporin/Antibiotic ointment

    Basic OTC drugs (in single dose pouches)
    Aspirin
    Tylenol
    Ibuprofen
    Benadryl
    I am not a lawyer.

    Maybe the libs are right? Shooting sure sounds dangerous!

    Great list. Do you have a premade kit or manufactured? It isn't that I'm lazy. It is that i get overwhelmed.

    I have this kit:

    I'm not worried about theft since i shoot at a club or indoor range where i don't leave my guns unattended.

    BUT i have been struck at the indoor range by ricochet bullet fragments. This has happened multiple times. Not sure if it is the plates in their armor or the shooters sucking that much. One time one of these fragments broke skin. Fortunately, not more than just a tiny bit.

    Judging from the OPs list and the following lists, you guys are talking outdoor ranges. As someone who is limited to indoor ranges for the time being this is overkill. For indoor visits I take my guns of choice and mags for them and several boxes of ammo and loader. Will have small tool kit and a few spare parts like striker assy and a few springs in the bag. Of course eye and ear protection but not much else.

    Thems good eatin' !

    I am surprised folks think of a gun to defend their guns. I can't imagine somebody trying to hold up a person at the range. That's as crazy as when folks try to stick up a gun store, before they know it 20 guns are pointed at them with some being cops. Lol
    Jimmy cracked corn and HE didn't care! Why should I?

Every one gladly accepts.
    In fact, I take D-Lead wipes with me. I got a dispenser load of them a while back and always keep a few in the range bag when I go. I can't find more at the moment, but I am only half way through.
