Hi there. So I just wanted to show off my recent handywork that I just completed. The following are three rifle rests I just completed. They are all variants of those found online with a bit of my own touches as I seen fit. Nothing special, just that I thought I would share. These are both for my air rifles, and regular rifle, and were built with both in mind. The small grey bipod is made of fiberglass fence rod, and the tall 6 foot bipod is plastic garden stake. Both are bound with an old shoelace from a pair of boots I was tossing out. The wooden one is based off of plans online. It also has 3 adjustable 'feet', one at each end up front and one in the rear.

neos- those look good.
We use cross sticks for the cowboy action challenge shoots, usually ranges from 60 to 200yards.
These are my cross sticks with nails in the bottoms to shove into the ground. (2 sets, one made from larger round hickory handles) The hickory handles have screw holes to change the pivots for height adjustments allowing prone shooting with the cross sticks as well. Prone with cross sticks is popular with the long range black powder ctg. silhouette matches.
My cross sticks have a sliding leather pad or thong for elevation adjustments.

I have some homemade rests as well.

Wow. Now there is quite the selection of nice rests as well. Thanks for sharing all those as well. It is rather funny about the car jack one. We had sent the old ladys car off to the scrap yard last fall, and the one thing I kept was the jack for exactly the reason you posted! Great minds must think alike....
