    Hi, all:

    I've tried the Outer's powder coated pistol rest, homemade sand bags, a brick wrapped in a coat, and a fence post as pistol rests. The Outers won't hold the adjustments any more, the homemade sandbags leak, the brick broke, and dragging that fence post around is a pain! :D

    What do you use? I'm developing some loads for my new GP100 and I'd like to get a solid rest, so I can evaluate my ammo.

    Thanks! I'm considering the MTM rest but I've never used one and I was wondering if it would hold up. thanks for your experience, I really appreciate it.

    I have used the Caldwell plastic pistol rest. It is too light, won't stay put.
