    Whats your favorite shooting "accessory"?

    I have been doing a lot of online Christmas shopping for myself. There are so many firearm accessories that make things easier for people like us. So, other than your firearms, what item in your collection is your favorite? It can be a safe, ear muffs, a bore brush, etc.

    Mine is my Midway USA range bag. Whats yours?

    Ammo doesn't count.

    I second the 'ammo' choice, one can never have too much...unless you're trying to swim to shore.

    A high quality pair of electronic ear muffs and a minimalist-sized good retention holster.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    A new roll of masking tape for putting up new targets and covering bullet holes between sets. Doesn't get any better than that.

    When shooting a lot, undoubtedly the UpLULA magazine loader.

    A good adjustable height seat. I'm mostly a rifle shooter and can spend a few hours at a time seated at the bench. A good seat makes all the difference. DR

    In addition to what's already been mentioned -

    Spotting scope. Beats trying to discern a 0.204" dia hole in a black bullseye at 100 yards with irons or even a 9x scope.

    Shot timer. Useless if others are right next to you, but if you're at your private place or otherwise by yourself, it's a useful tool.

    Chronograph. Highly useful (bordering on necessary) if you reload.

    Range rod. Ever have to drive a stuck bullet out of your barrel so you can continue the match? Skinny cleaning rods won't cut it for centerfire rounds.

    Magazine brush. If you shoot action matches or get in a lot of firefights, you'll be dumping mags onto the deck and they're going to get grit, sand, and assorted other scuzz in them. Two-three passes with the right-sized mag brush and you're GTG.

    My tuppence worth.
