    That year (with the MOA) I just wanted to show what could be done with a front rest that wasn't a top of the line/high $ rest. Plus using a MOA with external hammer (slower locktime) and more difficult to load quickly.
    I used it in "Light Pistol"
    The MAX Rest I still used in "Heavy Pistol".
    Honestly, I got tired of people whining that winning was solely based on the equipment list.

    I like this one. Fairly simple...... http://www.shotsgunsmithing.com/pistol_rest.htm

    I ordered my rest tonight. It will look like this one in Gloss Black but the adjustable rear plate tension knobs will be on the left side and it will have a wide front bag.

    I spoke to the gentleman about 30 minutes this evening. Very amicable and helpful individual. His personality and friendliness is what sealed the deal for me. Customer Service............goes a long way.





    JBP..........I love you and hate you at the same time. That's twice you've cost me money.

    Got an email today from the guy saying my rest was built. That he was going to paint it and let it cure. Should ship out in a couple days or so.

    Woohoo!!!

    Should have a very cool attachment for a Bog-Gear tripod that should work for revolvers and SP's in several months...:applause:

    It's not set up for bench shooting
    it's for field shooters and I know that you never shoot from field positions...

    Nah. Field shooting is a waste of time.
