I am sure you'll find something suitable.

Try Pound Stretcher, or similar, something will catch your eye.

I do like my MTM front rifle rest.

I also used it for the UBC benchrest to good effect.

Kind regards,

Im not finding this easy...Benchresting a springer seems so alien, and Im spraying pellets everywhere. I'll have a go up the club on wednesday. :D

I personally use a bean bag cradles it lightly, and not being a hard surface it does'nt jump like a bitch on heat, M. :)

At the moment I'm using a large carwashing sponge taped to the top of a small tripod, but it is a bit hard. I might see if I can get one of those beanbags you find in camera shops to support big telephoto lenses.

Still getting scores worse than hand held!

Think I have decided on the gun, though.

Will be interesting to see how the guns perform, once the results are in.

I tried the car-wash sponge on top of a pistol rest today. Lightly resting the pistol grip on the sponge, the results were a huge improvement over just resting on the hard rubber with a springer. Was so happy with the improvement..I submitted it as this month's entry.

3 scores received to date, with only one week left to go.

An ideal excuse, over the Christmas period, to disappear into the garage for a while!

Last couple of days before the first round ends.

Not been the most inspiring of weather I know.

Okeydokey - shot my Round 1 targets this afternoon. Usual MO, two sheets for practice then score the third. Not too bad (for me) and best of the day to boot.

Looking forward to the results,

Happy New Year one and all.
