Thanks to the idea from rsterne, I made a prototype paint roller bench rest.

Looks great, P-guy- adjustable height, too.

Picture this modern-type adjustable "chunk rest" for the "over the log" muzzleloading contests, with a paint roller instead of the 2X3' centre board. I made 12 of these for the first year prizes in that contest, at Rendezvous BC 2009.

Very nice, Daryl. It looks crafted with time and care. Mine was put together with bits and pieces found in the workshop. I think your example gives me further ideas for when I improve on my prototype.
whtsmoke, I think I will try foam rollers as you suggest. The roller pictured seemed to be missing something that could make it more effective.

I tried the roller thing and found the roller flattens after a few shot,s. A harder roller might hold up better.
Here,s an idea I'm trying out. This prototype uses a swing cradle with some foam padding. So far the best system next to the roller, which also work,s great.Spring gun,s don't like to be rested and my old arms can't hold them steady any more.ImageImageImage

Try a bow roller off a boat trailer....hard rubber won't flatten and 'V' shaped to boot(the short ones)...A sock over it so it can't mar anything,if that's important...........Thumper

I like that sling Joe!

You'll have to pad the bow roller well Thumper! I used them in my kayak rack I made of 2 X 4's.
