These new Birchwood Casey shooting rests may not be made out of the lightest materials but they sure do look durable and at least weatherproof which is great for rage days when the weather isn’t cooperating with you. Personally, I think the Tango Shooting rest appeals to me most due to the fact that I often test a lot of new pistols for mechanical accuracy and I want to remove myself from the equation as much as possible. Any one of these new shooting rests would be great to toss in the back of your pickup so its ready for you anytime you get a chance to make it out to the range – no need to worry about damaging these reests with their modern weatherproof construction!
