Low-cost basic front rest — keep as extra for training new shooters

Here is a basic, adjustable front rest you can use for sighting in a hunting rifle, testing handguns, or varminting.

This is also a good “spare” rest for shooting sessions with a young family member. On sale now, the Caldwell Rock Jr. Rest is now just $33.59 on Amazon, a very good price for simple yet effective basic shooting rest.
