Being physically challenged but still needing to whack pasture
ravaging hogs was really getting to me. Pickin the rifle up and putting it back down twenty or more times a night makes for bad following day.
So I screwed in two hooks and put a bungee in the middle. Works like
a champ. For a bonus I whacked a big hole digger I been after for a month
within minutes of getting the blind sling adjusted.

Those who give up liberty for security deserve neither.

That's where the idea came from. I get about 150 degrees of mobility left to right
out of it which is plenty for my need. Kick back in the big office chair, feet up on the other chair and listen to baseball or nod off. It's very stable but I may upgrade to a solid rubber bungee.

Awesome idea for your needs. I'm sure many others will steal it and there will likely be someone mass producing a similar item in the near future. Go get em pal!

I like it. The muzzle end is stabilized by the sill and you get plenty of elevation and windage movement on the button end. VERY GOOD!

I like that a lot! Good thinking!

Now where's the pics of the hole dogger you shot?

Clever! I'm all for making things easier.
You can never have too much ammo — unless you're swimming.

Great thinking! I've modefied some Caldwell Deadshot Fieldpod and Treepod products to help in the same manner.
