    Where can I purchase the rubber pads that are commonly placed at the end of each shooting station and use to rest the muzzle of the gun?

    Here in Tx. some clubs have bought the rubber mats that are used in horse stalls and cut them to the desired size. It's reasonable cheap and does a good job. Ps they cut reasonable easy too

    Roger...the pads refered to are embeded into the concrete pad and are permanant.
    The thread you refer to are carried on the end of your gun from post to post. I'm sure the livestock rubber pads would work fine.

    We need 5 pads. One for each station.

    The pads shown look like insulators you can buy them at A/C supply outlets.

    If you walk around Lowe's or Wall Mart for a while, you will find some very good material for making gun rest pads.

    Tom- You have five stations that need pads but you will need more than five pads. They seem to disappear over time.

    Does anyone know how several clubs have cut up old automobile tires to make pads? I would think cutting up tires would be difficult.
