Here is a list of what a Zombie Shoot participant brings to the event.
  • Ear protection (electronic muffs are best)
  • Eye protection (plus a spare in case primary breaks)
  • Hat with a brim
  • Long Pants are better than shorts
  • Rain gear if we have inclement weather
  • Jacket if chilly
  • Sunscreen
  • Chap stick
  • Bug spray
  • Water
  • Gatorade
  • Cooler to put above in
  • Snacks
  • Cash for onsite food from sponsors and food providers.
  • Cart or wagon to haul your gear around (the club is large you will travel likely a full mile walking around to all of the stages)
  • Any of these firearms below or all if you have them.
    • Unloaded and freshly cleaned Pistol in a case
    • Unloaded and freshly cleaned Rifle in a case
    • Unloaded and freshly cleaned Shotgun in a case
  • A chamber flag inserted inside the chamber BEFORE you arrive for all rifles and shotguns. If you don’t have chamber flags we sell them at the club or jump online before you come.
  • 200-400 rounds for each pistol and rifle depending on which is your favorite to use. If you are a heavy pistol or rifle user you can easily run through 400 in a day.
    • Note: Please also do not shoot our steel targets with steel CORE Ammo or Green Tip Penetrating rounds. It will damage the steel.
  • 200-300 birdshot rounds (#7 through #9) of shotgun
  • 20 shotgun slugs just in case the 3 gun stages have long shotgun slug only paper targets (never shoot any close range steel with slugs)
  • Magazines for your firearms 3-5 each is good. 10+ fully loaded is better. More time shooting less time loading.
  • Speed loading tools saves your thumbs and time.
  • Rem oil spray if one of your firearms acts up many times just adding rem oil spray gets it running again quickly.
  • Basic small tool set for small repairs of gear and guns.
  • Chest rig or belt with pouches to hold your pistol and rifle magazines.
  • Quality holster that securely holds your firearm. (Kydex, other hard sided are best)
  • Shot shell holders for shotgun shells.
  • Choke tubes for your shotgun
  • Good quality boots as you will be on your feet.
  • Folding lightweight chair can be beneficial. 
  • Spare Batteries for gun optics.
  • Leather shooting gloves if you like them for hot rifles and shotguns.
