Caldwell® Handy Rest Shooting Rest
better than a sand bag
For the price, the "Handy Rest" is tough to beat as a rifle forearm rest or a handgun rest. The rest has a nut that allows the main shaft to be lowered or raised, and there is an additional piece that comes with it that can be added as a hand rest for shooting handguns. Also the base and shaft/cradle are able to be dismantle from each other to allow easy transport in a backpack and ammo can.
At the private range I shoot at the Handy Rest definitely beats the 3 pieces of cut 2" x 4" s that are nailed together that are there for propping your firearm up off the bench or the usual sandbag solution found at most public ranges.

Caldwell Handy Shooting Rest
Nice rest for target shooting but not the best for sighting in a rifle. If you are looking for a rest for target shooting this is it. But for sighting in a rifle I would get something with cushion to rest the forearm on.

this is a nice rest for the money. comes with an extra peice to hold a pistol, which i take off and use to hold the back of the stock on my rifle. lightweight, and easy to transport.

I shoot a .308, and my son shoots a .22. We have been using this rest for 2 years, about 2 to 3 times a month, and never had a problem! Great rest!!
