      yo dawg I heard you like boxes XD

    Do people really still shoot rifles off of rests? Weird. Good bipods are pretty cheap.

    Can not remember the last time I needed a rest and didn’t just grab a gear bag, make it work, sight in and done.

      You’ve seen internet photos of everyone with their new rifles at the range? Lead Sleds, screw adjustable rests, almost anything but a simple old fashioned sand bag. Most of those rifles on those rests are regular rifles meant for carrying, too.

      I’d guess more people use special rifle rests than ever before.

      I can’t claim to be a bi-pod guy as I don’t like all that stuff on the front of my rifles, but I’m not a Lead Sled guy whatsoever. I’m still trying to figure out if I like shooting sticks or not. So far, “not”. Bags, trees, fences, elbows, etc., are my preference.

      However, at shooting ranges that charge me money, I do like when the range supplies those rubber rests (almost as much as sand bags). This is the only one I’ve had experience with. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2012/09/25/in-range-sight-bloc/

        Yea. Those cadwell adjustable rests and lead sleds bug the hell out of me. So much worse for skills than a bipod or even a bag.

        Try a bipod for awhile. It becomes vital equipment when you see how versatile they are.


        Those photos are from Caylen Wojcik’s Magpul precision class, HIGHLY recommended.

          “Try a bipod for awhile”

          I do need to add that to my list of things to do once I get a rifle more suited for it.

          • JumpIf NotZero

            You can take it from someone who has very expensive firearms… Just keep any eye out for and get a Tikka Tac, Scout, Varmint, or CTR, something with a heavy barrel.

            Poor man’s tactical gun.. Yea, but it’s dollar/perforamnce the best ratio out there. Tikka, bipod, mil/mil scope, nothing else needed. No need to mess with trigger, action, chamber, when you out grow the plastic stock there are good options for chassis and composite stocks.

          Not every gun can mount a bipod

          Unfortunately if you are a person like me with an actual tremor in my hands the best way for me to pattern my gun is on a lead sled.

      Hey if it is under about $40, I’d be ahead financially compared to the last time I lost track of how close my muzzle brake was to my bag as impromptu rifle rest.

      I just bought a cheapie caldwell front rest for about $35 though.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        FAIR POINT.

        I do have a black mark on one of my bags from exactly that. Was zeroing my carbine. Lucky the silencer was on it because otherwise the brake probably would have torn a hole.

  • ATman

    I detect a rather expensive price for this “innovative product”.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      I would hope not! Looks like hot wire cut foam ffs.

      Sort of like the idea of the chair on their website though.

      • ATman

        I know that is the point I was trying to make. More often than not I am looking at a(tactical) product going this has been banged together for $5 sold for $85. Secondly this company could declare this and ITAR Item (American companies/Magpul cough sneeze).

        I am kidding about the ITAR but seriously an Magpul iphone case is not going to single handely empower terrorists. Neither is your mags or one point slings. I have noticed three ways US companies treat Canada 1. Be chill sell cool products with minimal markup 2. be a greedy grubber sell products at 30%+ markup over US 3.Think something made of injection molded material is now and ITAR item (magpul and surfire).

    I like the concept, normally I use my range bag or bipod depending on what I’m shooting and I recently bought a Caldwell heavy bag for even better support but I’ve always wished there was a single product that worked well for everything, which this seems to do or at least seems to do better than what I’ve tried so far. These foam blocks would be a lot lighter to carry around than all that other stuff for sure and could be used as a front and/or rear rest.

    I’ll be watching to see how they price this because it seems like products like this usually come with ridiculously high prices. It may be a great product but it’s still just cut up closed cell foam so the price will be the deciding factor. I hope it’s reasonable, I’d like to add some of these to my gear.

    Thanks to the previous TFB post about the Syrian Mosin Nagant shooter, I’ll be using the innovative “couch cushion” as my rifle rest.
