    Rear rest bag

    Trying to find a good rear bag for target shooting without having to order from the US - I used one like this which seemed pretty good

    Leather rabbit ear bag

    Can't seem to find one locally - any suggestions?

    (sorry for the link but I can't seem to insert images)

    It was interesting to see in his video that Norway uses something that looks like a hacky sack.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Thats so he can practise his hacky skills while waiting for his 3 hour stand down before having another crack at the 500

    @Norway what brand was that rear bag you were using in the proficiency tests? Can you give us a looksie at it? Looked nice and small.

    The protektor bags are very good. I have the one shown in your link. Depending on your stock design if you are using it for F-Class you might want to go with an owl ear bag though.
    I got mine from the states.

    The little rear bags like Norway's one are great out in the field but would be not be practical for F-Class type shooting.

    Yes its for F-Class and I think the rabbit ear type will work bet with the stock I have. I use a little stuff-sack for non-range stuff. If I can't find one locally I will order one from the US. Best I could find locally was one of these

    Personally I would stay away from the Caldwell bags. The one I looked at bulged at the bottom making it want to rock around when in use. The protektor bags have a solid flat bottom that is much mote stable. Edgewood would be another good f-class rear bag
