When I get my gun back from Taurus repair, and goto range to put a few rounds thru it, other than ammo, are there any or things I should bring?

I highly recommend a Bore Snake for your caliber. A lot of jamming occurs due to build up in your barrel and the Bore Snake can clean this out very quickly.

I usually have a set of fine screwdrivers, hex wrenches and a basic cleaning kit in my range bag. Obviously, ear and eye protection. Matter of fact, I'm headed for the range in about half an hour.

I keep a zip-lok bag in my range bag, with a bottle of Outers Gun oil and a rag- just to wipe them down before I leave. I have one of those small pistol-cleaning kits just in case, but have never used it. Otherwise, just as much ammo I can afford to blow. Small screwdriver and a small wrench...and tools that go with my lasers/flashlights o remoe or iinstall.

Brass, or at least hardwood, dowel. The squib WILL happen. Nice to tap
it out and keep shooting.

Been there.

All the Best,

Ah yes, more ammo and money to buy it. There is a website called Armslist, where you can select your state and city. There you can find enthusiasts selling guns, ammo, parts, etc. I was able to do ammo purchases, when gun shops were out. But, it all depends on the various state laws for these transactions.

I never bring a cleaning kit to the range. When I come home from the range, I always throughly clean my guns so that they are ready the next time I go to the range. I do have an Avid gun tool, multi-tool, and a set of hex wrenches in my bag though. There have been times when I needed to adjust the sights or scope so it is handy to have tools. I also carry a small bottle of CLP in case I need some oil.

I take a set of hex wrenches. I also usually take a spare recoil spring and extractor. I always carry my swiss army knife, if you don't I'd suggest one for your bag. If you ever get into rifles with scopes at the 200+ yard range, even 100 yards, either way a spotting scope is nice but not necessary. I also take some Hoppes gun oil. Spare magazines...

Good comments by all. Get a good range bag - bigger than you think! I take as much as I can. If you have light tube sights get replacement tubes and add a cigarette lighter for emergency replacement of those.

I've been to the range with nothing but a gun and a box of ammo - and I've been to the range with a 50 pound box of spare parts and tools. I try to match my kit to my purpose in going.
Fun, to me, doesn't involve a lot of planning or a lot of luggage.
Competition is more serious, and I try to be prepared for anything.

Time to post those multi-gun competition carts and wagons!! I'm not sure that I have that photo but I'll set it up - mine's a converted twins baby carriage - room for all the comp items. Clamps for an AR on one side and shotgun on the other plus a small cooler and a folding camp chair...
