Hi there, just started getting back into shooting. Grew up in Georgia and shot all my life until I moved to CA. I went to the range last weekend and shot about 150-200 rounds. I've had the same .22 since I was 5. It's an Ithica single shot lever action and it's definitely seen better days, it's just to small for me now. I really had a great time at the range so I joined the club and went shopping for a new rifle. I picked up a Savage Mark ii GXP and then ordered a Harris Bipod. I'll be using this at the range and for squirrel/wild hog hunting. My goal is to try and get comfortable shooting out to 200+ yards at the range. I'm still getting my act together. I won't have the rifle for another week so I've got some time. My budget is pretty limited, spending $160 on the gun alone sent my wife into a hissyfit (gun hater). Are there any absolute essentials I should pick up and have in my range/hunting bags that would make my life easier? It's good to be getting back into this after almost 8 years off. I'm pretty sure the off-time was due to women though, so I'm not totally to blame!
