Thread: Wing mirror gun rest?

  1. #1

    Wing mirror gun rest?

    Just got myself a new truck - got an Xtrail.

    Was out last night for the first time and rested my rifle in my usual place whilst driving, between the window frame and the wing mirror. Got home and found I have rubbed a bit of the blueing off my Howa, which has not happened before.

    Anyone fashioned any kind of rest to stop this sort of thing happening - if so I would like to see your set up and how you have made it.

    Regards.

    I was always told to never allow the barrel of a rifle to lean on anything?? I use a "doggonegood" window rest... rock solid.

    Red Dot - this was not whilst shooting, just driving around. I assume you mean letting your barrel rest on something and it affecting accuracy?

    6.5 - that bag looks good, but not sure how it would function whilst driving around as a rest rather than when shooting? I was hoping for some easy, cheap solution.

    Nothing is worse than having an itch you can never scratch

    as above, see if you can find the black stuff they use it for attic pipes and tanks its a lot stronger and denser than the grey and thicker it comes in flat sheets too, doug, about 1 inch thick its dead strong stuff,
    DONT START

    I used to put a folded towel over the top of the mirror and hold it in place with a bungee.
