So after thinking long and hard about this, I have decided that I am going to design a shooting rest for myself with aspirations of offering it to the community once it is operating to my high level of standards. I wanted to get your feedback on what you'd like to see in a rest, maybe where some of the other rests fall short, or where you'd like to see further enhancements made over some of the current offerings. There are probably 100 questions I could come up with, but I'll rattle off a few just to get the ball rolling... 1) How critical is weight for you? Is heavier better? Note, I am not talking about stability, just simply weight. 2) How critical is portability? 3) Would you prefer a rest that is easily broken down at the bench, or are you perfectly fine carrying it around in its assembled state? 4) How important is a beautiful finish? Are you babying your rests, or are you throwing them around in your car? 5) What is the #1 feature you look for in a rest? 6) What is the #1 complaint that you have in a rest? This will not be a budget build. I own a production CNC machine shop, and I plan on spending significant time and expense on making the best rest that I can possibly dream up. So, don't be shy on your suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks all.
