Whidden Wins Long-Range Championship at Perry

John Whidden is the 2007 NRA National Long-Range Champion. He not only won the overall championship but he also won the Canadian Cup and the Palma competition. In fact, John won the Palma with the very same gun featured on this site as our “Gun of the Week”. Congrats to a great champion for well-deserved victories.

Thanks to Jim Hardy for this Report.

Padded Shooting Mat Just $24.99

Now this is a great deal for all you prone shooters out there. Now through August 30, 2007, MidwayUSA is offering a 69″ x 27″ padded shooting mat for just $24.99, item 169107. That’s less than half what you’d pay for a typical shooting pad, and many are priced closer to $80.00. (MidwayUSA’s regular price on this mat is $49.99.) Made from polyester fabric, the mat is black on the bottom and khaki color on top. It features reinforced, slip-resistant elbow and knee pads. It has a fold-out front flap and corner grommets which can be staked down. Those are two smart features that are NOT offered on most shooting pads, even more expensive ones. MidwayUSA’s mat meets NRA Smallbore and Highpower specifications, and rolls up to a compact 6″ diameter with a carry strap.

User reviews have been quite positive: “I purchased the mat while it was on sale and do not regret it a bit. It seems durable, has a good backing and the no-slip patches are a good feature in prone. Dirt brushes off easily when dry.” — R. Hopkins; “Very good for the money. The padding could have been a little thicker.” — J. Williams; “This shooting mat is … durable, convenient and comfortable.” — G. Jordan.
