Are you gearing up for your next competitive shooting match? Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner, having the right equipment is essential to your success. At Advanced Arms, we understand the importance of having reliable and high-quality gear to back you up during competitions. Here’s a rundown of what you need to bring to your next match.
Firearms and Ammo
First and foremost, you’ll need firearms and ammo. Most competitions require at least one gun, but it’s always a good idea to bring a backup firearm or a parts kit for quick repairs. Don’t forget to bring extra ammo too! A good rule of thumb is to bring double the amount you think you’ll need.
Shooting Range Accessories
Next up, shooting range accessories. If you’re competing in USPSA, IDPA, ICORE, or 3-gun events, you’ll need competition holsters that you’ve been practicing with. It’s also a good idea to bring a gunsmithing kit or small toolkit, a range bag with all the necessary items, and a sturdy case with an easy-to-grab handle and ample storage space.
When it comes to competition shooting apparel, you need clothing that allows you to move freely without restricting your arms or legs. Look for breathable, moisture-wicking tactical shirts and jackets with snag-resistant fabric and hook-and-loop cuffs to keep the ends of your sleeves out of your way. You’ll also want competition shooting pants with reinforced seams, Flex-Tac® ripstop fabric, and kneepad-ready knees. Finally, choose a sturdy competition shooting belt that can handle your holster and extra gear like a multi-tool.
Of course, safety is paramount in competitive shooting. Be sure to bring basic safety accessories like ear and eye protection, knee and elbow pads, shooting gloves, and a chamber flag.
At Advanced Arms, we offer a wide range of high-quality firearms, ammunition, and shooting accessories to help you perform at your best. From pistols and rifles to holsters and belts, we have everything you need to prepare for your next match. So, whether you’re competing in USPSA, IDPA, ICORE, or any other shooting event, be sure to equip yourself with the best gear available.
