Ransom Rest

I was looking on the American Rifleman Web site and found this article about the Ransom Rest that some of the members might be interested in. IMO, using a Ransom Rest is the only way to determine the precision of the gun and, therefore, its potential accuracy in your hand.

Range I use to shoot at had one for rent. I rented it once. A solid rest, and pretty much told me what I already knew. I had room to improve.
