Trying to find a Neoprene Bench Pad

Hello Everyone:

I've been using a towel to lay my handguns on @ the Range (don't want any scratches), but it won't stay put in the wind.

Do ya'll know where to get a nice thin neoprene (or other material) pad?

Suggestions Appreciated.....

Thanks Much.

JB

K-mart or Wally world have "Exercise mats" or "Yoga mats", those will cut down into lots of little bench pads.
Another thing you might try is that "bubbled rubber, non-slip drawer liner" (best description I could come up with) for lining drawers in the kitchen/toolbox. Its also available from the same places in fairly small rolls for a couple of bucks a roll.

Go to a dive shop and ask it they have an old wetsuit top.

I think the a benchmat from Cabellas/Gander Mountain is better.

At our shooting club they use 3/4" thick 4'x4' horse mats from Tractor Supply for benchtops. We also cut them down for spacers to go under your rear bag to gain height.

They're thick solid chopped rubber designed for horses to stand on. They cut to size easily and one side is textured, one smooth.

Orchard supply sells cheap garden kneeling pads. They're 99 cents on sale.
