Still brand new to this but saw everyone use these little electronic timers at the field, how much are they and where can I get one?

Just one word of advice, don't get too hung up on gizmo's. Learning the basic skills is going to be more beneficial to your progress at this stage.

1. Rifle (& filling kit if pcp);
2. Range finding scope;
5. Learning how to use them.
