Default WOOHOO!!! Going to Gunsite Academy

So my brother in law has been to Gunsite several times, and this September he and some friends are having a private training weekend. He invited me to go.

I can't WAIT....I've wanted to go to Gunsite for decades (literally) and finally I get to go.

I envy you. You're in for a real treat!
I went to Whittington Center last year for a private shoot, and it was a riot! I wish that I could do it every weekend.

Oh!! We want pics too! Take lots of 'em!!

Thanks all.

Any recommendations for a range bag or belt?

I usually travel with a range box, and a minimal sized range bag. That way I can have everything that I might need in the box, and only load what I actually need into the bag. If you get a big enough bag to carry it all you'll end up toting around 20lbs of stuff that you never used.
