    What do you all use for a bore light? I've been using a Night-Ize fiber optic attachment on the end of a Mini-Maglight, but haven't been entirely pleased. Of course, there's always the "shove a flashlight into the chamber somehow" - usually with a Photon or something. Or, use my fingernail to bounce light up the bore (hi-tech)...

    What other options are out there?

    Use a cigarette to reflect the light from the photon up the bore instead of finger, the paper is very white and works great.

    I like the cheap (on sale under $5) flexible arm LED lights from Harbor Freight. I carry one in each car so I can have one when going to shows, etc. The light head is small enough to go into the chambers of most firearms and the light is direct and very bright compared to the fiber-optic type.

    I get a white piece of paper, lock the action open, stick the paper in, then look down the bore. The white paper reflects the ambient light up into the bore and you can see it pretty clearly.
