Ive got the Alpha Master that I use for quick setup at ranges. I bought a 25' telephone extension chord so the tripod is set up 20' from the muzzle. It has always worked well for close to 20 years. I keep it in a camera case with a spare 9v battery. Velcro straps attach the tripod to it for carrying everything in a neat package.
No such thing as a stupid question. What is stupid is not asking it.
