A secure belt or drop-thigh holster which covers the trigger guard is required; holster must keep pistol secure (retention) because of vigorous movement. Some method of retaining and securing magazine or speed-loaders on you body are suggested.

Ammunition: For local matches, 200+ rounds each of pistol, rifle, and shotgun should be sufficient. Bring more in case you have to re-shoot a stage.
