I use one of these padded mats and put a microfiber on top of it. It all rolls up and goes in my box.

I cut a piece of carpet to fit in the bottom of my box.   I place it on the bench as a place to rest the pistol between strings.  In slow fire, I use a small section of 4x4 to rest between shots - so as to not change grip.

I'm not looking for a mat.  I want something that I can rest the trigger guard or muzzle on in between slow fire shots while still gripping the gun.  Brian Zins in this video is using a block of wood.  I would like something a little different.  That's why I was asking for ideas.

I use a yoga block. It works well to rest the pistol for different bench heights, and it’s padded, so I also use it to set my pistol on while scoring

I use a protektor leather rabbit ear bag filled with air soft pellets

not only is it a nice place to rest the gun between shots or targets, it holds the gun when I am cleaning it and also is a nice rest when zeroing pistols or ammo testing.

I wrapped a dishtowel around a 1" dowel and hold it with a couple of zip-ties. It makes about a 2-2.5" diameter. The front of the trigger guard and the dust cover rest nicely on it. Low benches I set it on an ammo box.

+1.  I do the same thing.  Trigger guard rests in one of the holes.

Pistol Rest Empty My Wally World $5 yoga block rest

Post by pnw05ss Thu Sep 03, 2020 5:24 pm

I did this rest about 2 years ago when I started our local indoor league.  I picked up a yoga foam block at my local WW for $5.  I figured I couldn't go too wrong with a $5 investment.  With some blue tape, felt pen, gun (Benchmark) and a straight edge I started in.  After the lines were drawn, over to my little band saw, then a 1" wood rasp and I was done in about 30 minutes.  The only mod I have made was to add some additional height which was made out of the "top waste" piece that I squared off using the band saw.  As you can see, it's simple and holds a multitude of guns.  If you are using a revolver, you will need to drill a hole in line with the ejector rod.
It's simple, cheap, pretty stable and easy to make, it works and doesn't have any hard edges to mar the finish.

Here is one more pic showing showing gripping the gun.  Most of the gun's weight is still supported by the block while getting your grip set or keeping a grip between shots.
