    If you're calling a Rolex a shooting accessory, make mine a 'Vette :rolleyes:

    My favorite shooting accessory would probably be the firearm i'm shooting with. If that doesnt count as an accessory, more of a neccassary item, then i'd say.... that little plastic tool box that came with my big tool box. It's perfect for carrying around ammo if i'm going somewhere in the car with a few guns.

    I would say eyes/ears if those are considered standard I would say the speedloader that came with my glock.

    My spotting scope. It doesn't do any good to send lead downrange if you can't see where it hit.

    A willing youngster to take care of resetting the targets in exchange for shooting all he/she wants. :D

    Flatdog hit upon my answer. However in my case it isn't optional :evil: .

    Either that or a big truck to haul all the crap/ammo off to the range :D .

    Would have to be my Grandfathers WWII Navy Binoculars. Always with me at the range because i'm too cheap to buy a spotting scope

    Reloading press. It brought a while new level of enjoyment to the shooting sports.

    For years I was without a spotting scope. Recently I aquired two including the one in the attachment - NOT me in the photo! Anyway , should have bought one years ago!

    The shock proof Rolex movement allows it to handle severe recoil with ease--making it popular with many waterborne Spec Ops teams, including SAS, throughout the later half of the twentith century. Hence, it's a great shooting accessory relative to many other mechanical watches.

    It also allows me to make the most out of my quick lunch hour shooting sessions.

    True, a Timex Ironman would also tell time and survive recoil, but it would be as satisfying as shooting a Glock when you have a Heinie 1911 available.

    I suppose Juggler's 'vette would be a shooting accessory too if he shot from it/at it or drove it to the range.

    Although I currently don't have one, I'd vote "spotting scope" too. Makes good sense.

    Also, I'd vote, "huge pack of neon colored 3x3" stickie notes. They are GREAT for putting over the same old shot-up target and making it like new. Each new square is a new bull'seye to shoot at! You can even see the holes punched by a .22!

    Bottles.
    We just can't go shooting without a squad of sleazy 20oz bottles to pummel.
    As for the watch, I prefer Ironman. ;D
    I am, however, unsatisifed with their watch bands. :cuss:
    *carries his Datalink Pro in pocket due to crappy plastic band breaking...$12 plastic band...*

    Earplugs. No question. Absolutely essential, at least for me.

    Bottled water, good shooting glasses, a towel serves to wipe sweat and protect when prone (fire ants down here!).

    Well, besides the guy trying to show off his fancy watch to a bunch of people who are thinking, "I SO would have bought a sweet gun instead of that yuppie-gear," this is a decent thread.

    Oh good lord. I have yet to see a serious operator wearing a rolex. Maybe some of the desk-pushing officers, but no-one that gets dropped in.

    Also, everyone knows Rolex can't keep time. :evil:

    I have a list of favorite shooting accessories.

    I like the Zalzinoch .22 reloader for my rugers. Nothing like just pouring a box of 50 rounds into the mags.
    A good holster. Setting your gun down stinks.
    Custom earplugs. So comfortable you forget you're wearing them.
    A sherpa to carry the ammo.

    I wear a Tungsten recoil reducing watch on my left wrist and a Tungsten gamers bracelet on the right. OK maybe not, my fave accessory at the moment are my $65 ebay special Rudy project glasses with 3 extra lenses that retail for $155 and don't hurt my face like my $4 Remington glasses used to.
