Clothes 8O :lol: Depends but usually jeans and a T or because of the nats a long sleeve T. If it is hot and a good breeze to keep the nats down then shorts. Bottom line is what I just happen to be wearing since most of my shoots are unplanned

BDU's (Vietnam-pattern Tiger Stripes from BDE Quatermaster, regular BDU's if I am going after work) or Vietnam-era Jungle Fatigues.

They are loose and don't bind, and comfortable....they are cool in hot weather, too.

Sometimes, I do wear shorts and t-shirt.

Boonie hat always comes along.

Usually BDU pants (tan or tiger striped), because of the reasons stated by Bren10man, and either a t-shirt or something warmer if its cold. I also usually wear boots for a couple of reasons: they help jack my knees up a bit in the sitting position, and the Black Land Prairie clay at our range is messy when wet and has huge gaping cracks that could swallow a small dog when dry. If I'm practicing for a match, I'll put on my shooting coat, but if I'm just shooting for fun I'll leave it off.


Grilling some ribs while my rifle cools down between strings at a fun shoot a couple of summers ago.

I knew I shouldn't have eaten that last doughnut! This illustrates why I don't normally wear jeans - too restrictive, especially for the "dimensionally challenged." :wink: :lol: :lol:

Warm weather (+50 degrees plus) army surplus jeans, cotton knit sport shirt and t-shirt, light hiking boots, light cotton socks, mesh ball cap or bandana.

Cold weather (below +50 degress) army surplus jeans, polypropylene long johns, heavy flannel shirt, polypropylene undershirt, light insulated parka, insulated hiking boots, heavy polypropylene socks, ball cap, (below 35 degrees) polypropylene balaclava.

If it is raining or snowing also a gore-tex rain parka with hood.

Same thing I wear just about everywhere: Dockers and sport shirt. Boots are in the back of the Explorer in the event it's muddy on the range as is a baseball cap to keep the sun and brass out of my eyes.

I leave the BDU pants or "Mail Call" outfits for the wannabes... :roll:

Some sort of BDU pant, because they fit loose, and a t-shirt.
