That's a GREAT price on a very good shooting mat. Good call posting this. No reason to use carpet scraps any longer....

Regards,
Brian in CA

Carpet scraps build character.

Thanks for posting I've been looking for a mat just like that.

I was going to order one, but it looks like they killed the sale early.

I was going to order one, but shipping killed it for me. That and they wanted to double the shipping charge to around $24 to add a couple of small butler creek scope caps to the order. I was extra over it at that point.

Multiple reviews seem to indicate the stitching is sub-par, that's why I hesitated and didn't buy one. Anyone have one for a while and find this to be true?

I have had one of these mats for about 1.5 years. I have used it heavily, mostly in the dirt and mud, and have frequently loaned it to Appleseed participants. It's still in good shape, though shows some wear in the stitching. I think I paid about $50 for it and consider it money well spent.

Nothing comes close, at the sales price! The best 30 bucks I have spent on shooting!

I think I pointed out in a previous thread that a moving blanket (between $5-$10) makes an excellent, though "ghetto-ish" shooting mat. Fold it over and it's super comfy. And I suppose if you are in the prone position and get cold, you could wrap yourself in it!

That's a good tip. I've said this before, I think carpet's actually the most comfy if you're going to be out there all day, but it's kind of a pain to carry around for a regular range visit so I have midway's smaller mat - I think this is the one - http://www.midwayusa.com/product/169...vc=subv1276544 It's pretty much perfect for putting between the benches at Chabot for an hour or two, and it rolls up small and it's lightweight.
