    I'm looking for a good set of knee and elbow pads for shooting. This is mainly to protect my joints when going to a quick kneeling or prone position in a timed match stage. I want some of the sleeve-fit type instead of the strap fit type because I think they are more comfortable. They should be hard instead of just padded so they can take the abuse I need. Any recommendations?

    I bought the elbow pads, also work for knees, at one of the local Dicks Sporting Goods stores. Cost about $5 a pair. Work very well.

    Creedmore and Champions Choice also carry them.

    Google. And I don't agree with the idea that sleeve type are more comfortable; you'll have a helluva time getting them over your sleeves and pants. And the hard elbow pads will be much more likely to slip, which can ruin a shot.

    Regardless, Google search is the trick.
