Anyone live in Oregon and happen to have a ransom rest? Could I rent or borrow it for a day?
Thanks!

If i were looking to rent or borrow a Ransom Rest I would consider renting/borrowing both the owner and the rest.
The owner should be more experienced at least on his own rest and get more accurate /reliable readings.

I have a Lee rest with a lot of adapters. Lot more user friendly then a ransom. I know of a Ransom at EEGC and TCGC. Match tomorrow at EEGC. I could bring the Lee if your shooting.

Here is what I have been doing in place of a rest.  For testing at 50yds I use a 25yd target at 50yds.  A 4 moa dot fits really nice in the black and makes it easy to line up.  You need a few sand bags and a block of wood like a 4x4. Put one sand bag on the bench then the 4x4 next to it but down range and then a sand bag on top of the 4x4.  You will also need to have some thin pieces of wood as shims to make some minor adjustments for elevation.  You may need to put them under either sand bag. 

Ideally you need to elevate the gun and lower your body so when aiming you are looking straight on and your head is in the same or close to the same orientation as when you are shooting.

For me the set up is much faster and I can get 1.5" groups which means I do not need a ransom rest to get good test results.

EEGC has a Ransom for members.  There are several inserts between club owned and my own.  But I do what Chris does mostly.  EEGC benches and a stool from the rifle line on top make an arm rest just right for me.

The OP is pretty much going to have to go to the sandbag method. He is looking for something that fits an STI double stack. I thought it might have grips like a 1911 but the whole grips and trigger assy is one piece.
