These are a set of gun rests I was given to review by a friend at FoamAction Sport. He wanted to know what I thought of them . . . .
Well let me tell you - I like them, I like them a lot!
As you can see you can easily use them in two orientations to get the height that is right for you. While shooting with them I found I like them lower while my friend who is a lot taller than I liked them tall. It was that ease to switch as we took turns shooting, just turn the rest and off you go. . .
They are made up of a foam material and so they are very light and easy to carry around. I keep them in my range bag. Compared to the old sand bags or shot bag . . . well you can't they are so much lighter you will actually bring them with you to the range. And as you can see in the photos they are not that big so they fit in a range bag easily. Nothing like the big plastic rests you can get for short money. . . I got one of them. . . it hardly ever makes the range trip due to it's size. I think its days are numbered now. . . .
The foam is good and soft so you don't have to worry about it marking up your gun, wood or polymer.
My daughter was nice enough to pose for a few pics with the rests. . .
I plan on continuing to use them and will post updates after a few more range trips. They look like they will work well with a pistol too if you are so inclined to try it.
I want to take them down to the kids rifle team and see how they work with them. I also plan on talking them up to the yearly Northeast Blogger shoot so I can let the gang give them a run for the money and get their feedback too.
So far so good, I like them and you will too!
