I was using palm rests on my Winchester 52 in regional / international / and national championship 4 position events in the 1985-1992 period and had 3 to choose from (still have them)Top left to right: Palm rest. Don't recognize that one but they wre used on Schuetzen rifles in the US, Europe did not allow them, from the inception of Schuetzen until its demise shortly after WWI. Must have been used in other matches because that one looks too new for the Schuetzen era.
Lyman/Redfield/Marbles aperture sights. I have several rifles so equipped. Early 1900's to today. Match shooting and hunting.
Shooting jacket, match shooting usually. Probably from the 30's through today.
Ray-Ban shooting glasses. Those appear to be from the 80's or 90's according to the case..
More aperture sights.
Shooting mat/pad. Probably from about the 70's or 80's to current.
I have no idea what the manual is in the second post. Second picture looks like a "free pistol", third is an interchangeable aperture front sight. Possibly as early as the 30's. Don't recognize the dude.
Lones was a terrific coach for junior and youth shooters not only in the high power disciplines but amongst the rimfire courses of fire s well...
