Randi Rogers is a world and nationally ranked competitive shooter and an outdoor industry professional. At age 11, she began Cowboy Action Shooting with her grandfather. She moved away from Colorado after earning a degree in Business Marketing and began her career with GLOCK in Georgia. A few years back she left GLOCK, relocated to Texas, and now works as Marketing and Sales Manager for Comp-Tac Victory Gear and shoots on their team. She has had quite a career, amassing more than 35 world and national titles in seven disciplines.
Randi actually uses six different range bags, depending on the discipline she’s shooting, but she carries a 1776 backpack to the range. She said, “I am so short, I have found the backpack to be more comfortable.”
Here’s what she puts in her pack:
-Cleaning Kit – Mil-Com cleaning products and oil. She said, “I like Mil-Com because it doesn’t smell so bad, but it works great. The cleaning solution comes in a spray bottle but it is not an aerosol, so I can fly with it.”
-Patches/ Q-tips and bore snake.
-Parts kit for her GLOCK Gen 4.
-Zippered pencil pouches for cleaning kits and other things. She said, “They are not too big, but keep things more organized than just a plastic bag.”
-Business cards, because “I am always meeting new people and new friends.”
-Eyes/ Ears. “I use ESS eyewear. They are really clear and comfortable. I usually shoot in clear lenses because I see the best in them. I take two frames and three lens sets. I really prefer molded ears, but I also wear muffs if it is cold or indoors.”
-Guns/ Mags. “If possible, I take two guns and two more mags than I think I will need. That way, if I have a problem with a gun, I can just go to my backup and don’t have to try to fix it on the range. I also take extra mags in case I lose or break one.”
Rogers said she always takes along a lucky item: “It is a silver horn I bought in Italy. It is for good luck. I had it with me at the world shoot so I think it is very lucky.”
