    Hi all.

    Can some one point me in the direction of a supplier of arm pads ??

    As the weather has finally warmed up, and I have changed to my thin summer jacket, I feel I need some sort of padding on my elbow area. (Shooting FT, over arm).

    Checked Google and Ebay and can not see the sort of thing I need.

    Any pointers please ?

    Try some skate boarders elbow protection pads, can usualy be found at boot fairs very cheap, remove the plastic bits first, knee pads the same.

    Far play, but I just can't shoot off the knee !
    I'm quite stable over the arm, but off the knee I'm all over the place.

    Thanks to Davali I took a different search on the Bay, and seem to have found something I think will do.

    I have the same problem shooting that "old fashioned" overarm method now its warmer. I have tried several times to shoot off the knee -- the rifle wobbles all over the show, my legs are tense and I cant breathe! Shooting overarm I am relaxed and steady ( apart from my pulse bumping the cross hairs up and down in the kill area - you get used to that!).
    Whats the secret to off the knee? Several club members have shown me what they do - but I just cant get on with it.

    Bunched

    If you are bunched over , then you need more elevation under the forend of the rifle . a lifter of some sort will do the job . then because you are higher use the rifles sling to get more stability , plus a good butt hook to hold it in the shoulder . then you can shoot in the nude with no worries . well maybe the ants ??? HOLLY:):D:eek:
