Where it's required, what do you guys do to hold the bolt open, at the range?

Stick a yellow NRA saftey flag in the action and let it partially close on that.

My range has rubber blocks on a string attached to every bench. Empty shell casings are used, also.

On my sar 1 you can hold the bolt by:

1-detaching the magazine
2-drawing the bolt to the rearmost position
3-while holding the bolt, pull the trigger
4-slowly bring the bolt forward til it stops.

Reloading simply involves a fresh magazine and a pull of the charging handle.

Good tip, Drew. I didn't know that one. Just tried it- works like a charm.
