MTM PR-30 Pistol Shooting Rest

After blowing out my "bean bags" at the range last night with the .44 magnum revolver I decided to do a little searching and ran across this. Anybody have one or know anything about them? Not expecting much for as much money as I paid for it, but thought I would give it a shot.

    They suck - but last forever.

    They are fine, for occasional use. The range I go to had several of them that they left outside for years, for members to use. The folks who are really serious about shooting tiny groups usually bring their own - more stable, and with smoother adjustments, but the plastic models work OK for most folks. I use a cheap steel one with a better pad and smoother adjustment capability, but it was no great hardship the few times I had to use the plastic ones. It's all about what your needs are and how much you want to spend for accessories. I'm somewhere in the lower middle class, with my requirements, but I have been much lower. :tooth:

    Thanks for the heads up...I wasn't expecting too much, but I didn't own one, I have always used bags and I burned one out using my revolver last night, will see how it goes, if it doesn't work out at least I didn't lose much. :tooth:

    The hard plastic Vee rest is not conducive to accuracy. Needs padding to be serviceable. Same for the hard rear rest area. They will work as-is, but you can do better.

    That should be an easy fix..
