We use the small hand warmers in the cool months and small cold bottles of water in the hot months. Only takes 4-6 rounds to get them on target. Most have very exacting x & y (w&e) adjustments.

If you are sighting in during the day, take a target and cut a hole where the bullseye is. Then put a piece of foil behind the target where the hole is. Then put the target and foil onto a cardboard background.

When you rent them, does it come as a full setup with gun or just scope?

Just scope with quick release mount. We rented uppers but turned out its way easier for the customer to rent just scopes.
