$14.95 for this rack, drawers clip in and can't fall out the back. I'll be labelling it tomorrow for all the small parts the 22XX's have!

Also this was $14.95! Great for a lot of the shooting I do!

That shooting rest really looks interesting- I'll check out the local Princess Auto tomorrow for one. I found when hooting rats from a lawn chair, that an adjustable verticle rest worked great - even for 300yard shots. Move the chair and rest both elbows on the arms, rifle on the rest and it's almost as good as a portable table and a bipod on the rifle.

Too, the local P.A. has RWS R10 pellets. they are exceptional in my FWB for 10m running game as well as 20 and 25meter indoor silhouette.

Hi there rrdstarr,
Ty for the info, i have seen the "shooting stick" @ my local P/A. If you have the time, give us a quick review of it after you have tried it out. I would be interested in your thoughts & opinion of it. I'll keep an eye on this post and others for any updates on this product. It looks like it would suit my needs nicely.
K.L.

Those are nice finds.
Except for a couple of airguns (i.e.: SIG Sauer & the H&K MP5) most of the airguns at PA aren't very good. Russian manufactued I think.

A lot of the airgun stuff at PA is imported by A&B Enterprises- an Edmonton based company that rips off other's products and has them manufactured in China. They always have a big booth at the boat and sportsman show or their store called Liquidation World. Very low end reproductions from 3rd rate Chinese factories.

Badshot, they are just Airsoft at my PA, no BB or pellet guns.

I tried the tripod/stick last night. For $15.00 I had a nice stable little platform to shoot from from my camp chair out of the garage and out into our pasture. Works a lot better then the small roll-up camp table I have used before. It is flimsy trying to use it as a bipod, but once you pull the stick up to the trigger guard and use the velcro that V-yoke has on it, it works like a treat.
It is adjustable for height and the post that the stick goes into is actually a rubber hose, fairly rigid but still flexible enough to make any adjustment necessary for your shooting style.

Funny I have been using my old Spotting scope stand for competition before this. But it is solid as a rock and not padded. I put some PVC pipe insulation around where the box of .22s normal sit and the 60X Kowa spotting scope sits on top.

I like this little "cheapie", and I usually buy the most expensive one I can find! :shock: I'd redesign and machine a "U-shaped" yoke , vs. the V-Yoke but can't pull the damn thing off!!! LOL!

No trying to steal this thread but the name princess Auto got my attention.I bought 3 weeks ago a Sig Sauer P226 Xfive Open for 119.00 in Ontario,Missisauga area.I pretty sure they have 2 more left.

Just putting that out there.

Cheers
