 500 rounds of quality ammunition.  If in doubt what to purchase, Speer Lawman, American Eagle, PMC Bronze have always worked well for me. 
• A good carry pistol and a revolver.   
• Quality holster and belt (avoid flimsy nylon stuff)
• At least three magazine and carriers.
• Brimmed hat.
• Eye and ear protection.  Prescription glasses or sunglass will suffice.  Electronic ear protection is recommended.
• Notepad and something to write with.
• Water, snacks.
• Weather-appropriate clothing.  Rain, heat, wind or shine…we shoot.
