    Every episode, we see all the shooters leaving the house, and heading to the range with enormous backpacks. They take their place on the benches, they're given an explanation of the day's weapon(s), and then one team leaves while the other practices.

    Pray tell, WTF is in those stupid backpacks that they lug around and never use?

    I think there covering their bases for weather. Have seen then shoot in all kinds of conditions so most likely extra layers and maybe lunch.

    They are filled with food, drinks, general range bag supplies, and the like. Some carry spare shoes, their own eyes/ears rather than using those they have the range.

    Consider it basically an 8 hour to 10 hour day bag for an all day fest on the range.

    Just because it appears they are only out there for a few minutes doesn't mean that's all the longer they're there...they could be there for hours trying to get just the right take...could be hours cut out of the taping.

    When taking new weapons to the range I carry a large range bag with shooting goodies, canteens, plus a shooting scope in a case and my full gun tool kit in a large plastic break down tool case

    Me too, love the show. Where else can I watch that many different courses and weapons in head to head combat?

    Well if there is nothing to watch but scripted "Reality" shows, we don't have much of a choice. Plus it's mindless entertainment. some of you take TV way too seriously.
