shooting bags Cheap- First post here..save $$

I have been doing this for years.....I have to laugh when I see people paying to $$ for shooting bags. Here is what I do.

Take a pair of old blue jeans, kackie pants or what ever. Cut legs off and zip ties lower legs shut and fill with fine sand.....then zip tie top legs off....done!!!


all done so cheap and easy I do it every year. Hope it helps!!

Welcome to LRH!

That's a great idea. Very practical/functional and will work for 99% of us.

You also don't need a $5,000 rifle. But, many here have such toys.

Good idea,i was just thinking about getting some at wal-mart,but i thought crap $20 and there kinda small. i could use my boys pants but then it would all run out the knees!. i'm rethinking the high dollar gun thing,i figure why not spend it before the wife gets to.
