    Nice list but some redundant items you are just adding weight with.

      Two is one; one is none.

    Awesome load out as always.  I hope you have a blast on the sniper challenge (no pun intended.)  One item of kit that I very highly recommend are Salewa boots!  I am really picky when it comes to footwear as I am sure many people are.  As soon as I placed my foot into the boot, it was the most comfortable boot that I have ever tried.  They guarantee NO blisters, and the come in gore-tex.  I know you won’t be getting any for this trip specifically, but I hope that you can get some eventually as I am sure you won’t be disappointed.

  • Hope you are shooting 175 Grain since targets are out to 1100 yards. Strange they don’t allow you to utilize a sling when clearing your course of fire. For $500 entry fee, you should get a shirt. Good luck, look forward to follow ups on this event.  $

  • Why why why would you punish yourself with that ALICE pack. We’ve all seen your collection of packs, surely you have one that would do a better job than that relic. Do you self a favor and use one that transfers load properly, to your hips, and not just your shoulders. I know I know “it’s always been fine for me” is the typical excuse, but there’s a reason so many military guy’s backs are ruined now and that pack is a big reason for it.
