If you could make the front par by its self and a little shorter It would be a great money maker.

Still a very nice rest.

I wish I had the skills and equipment (Or access to equipment) to do that.

I was thinking about perfecting the rest and then looking at making some for sale. I teach HS machining and we could always use the funds generated to go back into the program for more stock/supplies.

Next might be the prototype of a front only rest. Seems to me that would be what most shooters will want. The purpose of this one was that I want to see if I can lock a gun into it and take the human element out of the shooting. Basically find out how accurate the gun can really be. When I get the setup right, I want to be able to stand to the side of the gun and fire 5 shots to see what kind of a group a particular gun/ammo is capable of without ever shouldering the weapon.

Great looking rest.I know you spent some time behind the Mill and Lathe on that.
A big thumbs up to you on getting your son into shooting and gun safety at an early age.

I bet you could sell a truck load of the rest,just on this forum alone!
