Target     

Drum Thrown (Seat)         
Pull Through
Pellet Lube                       
Front Rest
Rear Rest


Can I ask why you take a pull through? Aren't you supposed to leave the barrels to lead up?

He might be testing different brands of pellets so he'll want to lead up the barrel with the particular brand .
I plink , therefore I am.

Only so Leaded up, when accuracy goes away I pull throu a dry Patch or 2 weather it;s after 1 Card (about 30 or so Shots per Card) or 2 Cards, Some Guys don't Patch at all (3 Cards @ 90 or so Shot's per Match) whatever Your Barrel Wants/Needs You Gota Do it or Shots Wander to much to chase back in to the X on next Target. You have to make Your Barrel Shoot where You want it to Hit for the full 25 Targets per Card. Bench Rest is Hard inside but that's were You Learn Your Barrel. Outside in the Wind is a different Story, It's all YOU and what You learned Inside Plus add the wind in too, People think Golf is hard.....try Airrifle BENCH REST OUTSIDE w/Wind or not @ 25m 12flb-FAC or 75m FAC Matches are starting at Club's around the States 75m is a long airrifle Shot .....Only the Strong Survive this Great Game of Our's

Quick question, do any of you take tools with you.

Like allen or hex keys, screw drivers etc?

Since I put my night vision together I have started carrying an allen key that fits the associated mounts and a small screwdriver to get access to the NV gubbins housed in its box.

I've not needed them yet but carry them in case I need to make any small adjustments (the NV rig is still young so it *might* need attention).

I've not even thought about what to take when I eventually go hunting.

But at the moment on the range, I've started taking allen keys (after my scope mounts came loose) along with pellets, targets, mobile. I just need to get a flask now, as I could do a brew whilst at the range. After all we built an empire on tea :) :)

So my list of things I take is getting longer.
 
Apart from the obvious rifle and pellets. I now take my mobile, flask, targets, allen keys, screw driver, gun oil and micro cloth to wipe my gun down when I've finished.

I've also been thinking about stuff I would like, for when I get my permissions. I'll not bore you all with that list untilI have too ;)
