    From the makers of Barrelcool, we have a new product for the person who just can't stop shooting, even if it is raining. We call it, Gun-Dri. It is a scope mounted product that helps people shoot in the rain without getting their action or ammo wet. When ammo gets wet, all sorts of things go wrong and Dun-Dri is the perfect solution. Keep it in the range bag or rifle bag as insurance for those less than ideal days.

    Weighing in at a whopping 2.8 oz, this will allow you to stay dry and keep you stay under weight when shooting registered matches in F-Class.

    Might work good on your spotting scope if you left it out in the rain when you go to the pits ! Also may keep your brass on the bench when you open the bolt. Just think good thoughts about how to use thing. Maybe lots of other good uses!

    Lol. If you don't understand the device, you aren't the target market. In F Class, you shoot in the rain, often on an uncovered firing line. If you shoot internationally, think Ireland/GB specifically, you will shoot in the rain.

    Raton, current location of nationals, is another place where it will rain during a match. If you get water in your action and or on your ammo, well shit gets real interesting real quick.

    Everyone has a rain kit. It is usually a piece of clear plastic attached with velcro tabs to your scope and stock that drapes out over your ammo box. If you shoot a dual port, it is a little more challenging than a single port.

    Here's the catch. Whatever you attach to your rifle or drape over your rifle counts as part of your weight.

    So while you are snickering, Brian is thinking outside the box and probably about to line his pockets with some extra scratch.

    I like shooting, but not on the ground without a roof over me at my age Pneumonia wouldn't be fun.
    If it attaches to your rifle yes it should count as weight, but draped over it NO. ATTACHED IS THE MAGIC WORD.

    Joe, in F-Class if it is on the rifle as shot in a match & moves when the rifle is lifted straight up it counts in the weight. Draped included!

    I once sighted in my old, slow 30-30 in the rain. Left rust rings around the bullet holes.

    Larry I hear you but it's the stupid rules that have no bearing on how the rifle performs that turn people away! I also understand that you can't put a bag of shot on top of the rifle to hold it down, but there are also rules against that. But a piece of plastic to keep thing dry. Give me a break. Attachments should be the norm.

    I always just wear a pancho and shoot until scope fogs up. Pack it and go home. Sometimes scope doesn’t fog up so I just shoot. Never had problems with water on my gear. My father use to take his rifles in the shower with him once in a while. He said they would be due for a good scrubbing.
