That might print a little to much for CCW!

Naw, just don't AIWB and you'll be fine.

I like it although it would set one up to be great target.

Maybe for NRA Hi-Power?

It does not appear to be a product of the same company unless I am not finding it there. The Lone Star Field rest does not use a single contact point and clamp. Or is that not the point, and it’s simply posted as an example another system?

Do we know the origin of the one posted at the top?

This sort of thing is interesting, but the one pictured doesn’t seem fundamentally different from the PIG saddle that also clamps to the rifle. In my experience such aides help greatly with stability, but they don’t eliminate rifle movement entirely, and there’s still a fair amount of skill required for accurate shooting.

No but it does come with a USMC 0317 to pull the trigger, he does not fit in the case though and keeping him in whiskey is more expensive than the ammo

I was linking to a very effective rest that appears to be widely utilized by military and police, the Spec Rest. I have an earlier version by the same company that is more complex and not as quickly adjustable, and my experience with it results in me having some understanding of what makes a field steady rest useable. I think this one is, though I haven't used one.

I sold a leather sling to a gent a few years back. He was only saving $20 off a new one, but I think he liked to network.

He was in his 60s and exercised 50 weeks a year to go hunting 2 weeks a year. Worked with a spotter, shot mountainside to mountainside. Anything under ¼ mile was not sporting, he thought. He brought in his rifle to show me.

His rifle was so plain I thought it was missing a few parts.

Looks similar in design to the 'HOG Saddle', but different clamping.

If firearms had gender, this rifle would be female.

Yes, I had the less expensive but similar PIG saddle that worked well but was definitely not rock solid.

Holy cow! I just realized that all my really Right Stuff photo gear, tripod and gimbal mount can be used with just the addition of the rifle clamp they now build. 2 for 1! Look under their SOAR gear if you go there and bring a large stack of bills.
