What to wear

What should I wear to the outdoor range?

Wear clothing that is comfortable but not too loose that spent casings can fall into.

Outdoor shooting ranges are dusty, and the ground is uneven and with small rocks and spent brass casings.  We recommend wearing good non-slip shoes for comfort and safety.

NOT Recommended

  • Yoga pants, leggings, sweatpants or gym shorts with only a drawstring
  • Expensive clothes or jewelry do not wear big bracelets. Earrings are not recommended with hearing protection
  • A loose or low cut top, or top with an open midriff
  • No flip flops or heels


  • Jeans, cargo shorts, or pants.  You will need pockets for extra magazines or ammo
  • A sturdy belt that fits through your pant loops for your holster
  • A short or long sleeve shirt that tucks into your pants so that you can draw from the holster without any impediment
  • Appropriate footwear, sneakers or shoes used for hiking and walking over outdoor terrain
  • A ball cap to protect your face from flying brass and sun
  • Applying sunblock is a good idea
  • Long hair placed in a ponytail to keep off the face while shooting

Enjoy the class, and don’t worry about your performance.   Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
