To get started in PPC competitions, it is not necessary to have anything besides the gear you carry for everyday duty. Most of us started with out of the box firearms to compete in every match from the duty match to the open class 1500. As you get more familiar with the competition and better at your shooting skills, you may want to look into more customized firearms to make you more competitive.

In addition to your firearms, there are some things that are helpful to have on the range. Here are some suggestions:

  • Ear and eye protection is required
  • Clipboard and pen
  • Staple gun
  • Large spring clips to hold your target to the frame
  • Small calculator
  • A digital watch or timer to monitor shooting stage times
  • A small bucket to keep your things in and to pick up your brass
  • A hat and sunscreen
