Sighting-In for 3-Gun
By Rob Reaser

conaway The country’s hottest practical shooting competition continues to grow. If you are looking to get in on the fun, TRUGLO® offers one-stop shopping for all your pistol, shotgun, and AR sighting needs.

If you do it, you already know. If you don’t, you’ll find out as soon as try it…3-gun competitions are a blast. Not only do 3-gun matches scratch that itch we all have to get out on the range, but participation in this popular and ever-growing sport has real-world benefits the likes of which you just can’t get from static range shooting. The practice of engaging multiple courses of fire with your three primary defensive weapons—pistol, shotgun, and semi-automatic rifle—allows you to hone your self-defense skills. What’s more, the trio of weapons you may use on a 3-gun course can be the same ones you employ for your daily personal and home defense.

Getting into 3-gun shooting is simple. All you need is a pistol in 9mm or larger chamber, a pump or semi-auto shotgun in .20- or .12-gauge, and, for most divisions, a .223 chamber semi-auto rifle, the most popular of which is the AR-15 platform. From there, it’s a matter of refining your weapons to suit your needs while staying within the rules for the division in which you want to participate. If you have questions, there are many resources to help you get started, including your local participating gun range or shooting club. The 3-gun fraternity is a friendly lot, and experienced shooters enjoy every opportunity to help new shooters get involved in the sport.

Although 3-gun equipment rules are in place, they are fairly simple—especially when compared to some competitive shooting associations. One area where the rules are fairly straightforward involves sights and optics; depending on the division in which you chose to participate, no magnified optics are allowed or one magnified optic is allowed in your 3-gun set.

For those of you who are ready to give 3-gun competition a try, these three products will get your gear ready for the buzzer.

TFX Pro Pistol Sights

If you’ve done any serious pistol shooting, you know that your original equipment front and rear sights do not provide an ideal sight picture in all lighting conditions. The TRUGLO TFX™ Pro tritium/fiber optic day/night sights, however, work in all lighting conditions, such as you

TFX™ PRO Pistol Sights

will often find on a 3-gun course. The advantage the TFX™ Pro sights have over conventional open sights, fiber optic-only sights, or tritium-only sights is that they combine Swiss tritium and fiber optics with a contrasting color front sight ring. This combination provides optimal sight picture acquisition whether you’re shooting with a high-noon sun overhead or you are on a woodland course darkened by storm clouds. What’s more, the tritium/fiber optic elements are encased in almost indestructible, hermetically sealed capsules that won’t be compromised by oils and cleaning solvents. Another advantage these sights have for the 3-gun shooter is their radiused, snag-proof design, which allows you to draw and holster your pistol smoothly and quickly.

TRU•BEAD Turkey Universal Sights

You’re probably thinking, “A turkey sight for a tactical shotgun?” Well, listen up. Three-gun courses are increasingly diversifying their courses of fire, and this includes the shotgun courses. In a shotgun course, you may encounter everything from close-quarter target “hosing” with #6s or 75-yard slug targets. As a result, you need an equally diverse sighting system. An ideal middle-ground sight is the TRUGLO TRU•BEAD™ Turkey Universal. You can use the orange fiber optic front sight to focus on your close-range targets. When it’s time to send a chunk of lead far downrange, the contrasting color rear sights will give you precise targeting. Of course, the rear sights are adjustable for elevation and windage, so you’ll know the steel is in trouble as soon as you hit the stage.

To Magnify or Not to Magnify

That is the question you must answer before deciding in which division you want to shoot. The Limited division, which is popular for those just entering the 3-gun world, does not allow any magnified optics. If this is your chosen path, you’ll want to consider using a fast-acquisition red dot, such as the TRUGLO TRU•TEC™ 30mm Red Dot. This sight provides a wide field of view and unlimited eye relief for the fast-paced 3-gun environment while the 2 MOA reticle ensures precise targeting for those way-out-there shots.

TRUGLO TRU-BRITE 30 Series 1x6x24mm

The TRUGLO TRU•BRITE 30 Series 1x6x24mm takes you from no magnification for quick short-range work, all the way to 6x for those critical distance shots.

If you want to jump right into the highly competitive Tactical division, you will be allowed one magnifying optic in your arsenal. This, naturally, would be best served on your rifle. While some competitors combine canted open sights with a higher power scope to cover both short and long distance targets, fixed power or variable power scopes (1-4X and 1-6X) are commonly used for both. The scope is set at its low setting for engaging close targets, then the shooter cranks up the magnification to engage the 200- and 300-yard plus targets. For this, the TRUGLO TRU•BRITE™ 30 Series is your huckleberry. The TRU•BRITE™ 30 Series can be purchased with either 1-4X or 1-6X magnification and includes two pre-calibrated BDC turrets (one for .223 caliber/55grain and one for .308 caliber/168 grain) so you can be confident of your shot placement. Another feature that makes this scope optimal for 3-gun shooting is the ergonomic magnification adjustment ring, which minimizes fumbling and grip slip when you need to quickly transition between magnification settings.

Try It Out!

Three-gun competition is great fun, and it is a terrific opportunity for developing real-world defensive shooting skills. There are firearms clubs and associations around the country which host three-gun matches throughout the year. The National Shooting Sports Foundation maintains a listing of shooting ranges in the U.S., many of which host 3-gun competitions. Contact your local ranges for more info. You can also check out 3-Gun Nation for additional shooting opportunities in your area. In the meantime, check out this NSSF introductory video to 3-gun competition.

Tune Up for Long-Range Shooting
By Rob Reaser

DSC_3686_Wide “Long-distance” is a relative term in the hunting world, but whether 50 yards or 500 yards is stretching it out for you, here are some tips that will help extend your lethal zone.

Ask ten hunters what they consider to be a long-distance shot on a game animal and you’ll probably get as many different answers. The correct answer is measured not in distance, but in shooter skill and equipment. A long-distance, pushing-the-envelope shot for me is around 250 yards. When shooting in a hunting situation, that’s about as far as I can confidently make a kill shot. I simply cannot keep my rifle still enough to shoot any farther than that and know that the kill will be ethically quick. For other hunters, 300 yards may be their maximum ethical shooting distance, or perhaps 400 yards. Go much beyond that, unless you are shooting a highly specialized rifle and scope combination and have years of practice doping wind and calculating bullet drop, and most shooters are dancing in the “pull-and-pray” zone.

So, maximum shooting distances for ethically hunting game is relative to the skill and confidence level of the hunter. The thing is, it doesn’t matter whether you want to make clean shots at game animals that are 50 yards or 300 yards away, the principles of shooting accuracy are all the same. If you follow these shooting fundamentals, you’ll learn your maximum shooting distance, be confident that the shot you take will be true, and possibly push your personal “long-distance shot” a bit farther than you thought possible.

Equipment Basics
Is one rifle setup better than another? No question about it. That said, we all are going to shoot what we like and the best we can afford…be that a particular brand, model, chamber, cartridge, optic, or accessory. The important thing is that your equipment fit your body and shooting style, that everything is properly set up, and that you find the load that shoots best from your particular barrel and stick with it.

A common problem many hunters have that can adversely affect accuracy is not having a comfortable fit when they shoulder their rifle. The length of pull may be too long or too short, which can force you to shoot in an unnatural position, or the scope may be mounted too far forward or backward to achieve proper eye relief, which can also cause you to shoot in an unnatural position. Remember when you were a kid and wanted a particular pair of sneakers but the store didn’t have the right size? You convinced yourself and your parents that the ill-fitting shoes would be fine because, darn it, you wanted those shoes! Later, of course, you paid the price. Don’t be that kid again! If your rifle needs to be adjusted, there are aftermarket solution, such as installing a longer butt pad or getting a gunsmith to trim some stock length. The point is to make sure your rifle fits and the scope is properly set up, because failing to do so will only frustrate your efforts to maximize your shooting distance.

Speaking of scopes, there are so many on the market today that picking the right one can be an exercise in frustration. I’ve seen people drop a month’s worth of wages on a high-power, multi-function, BDC reticle scope designed for 600-yard-plus shots knowing full well that it will never be used for more than dropping a whitetail at 100 yards max. I’ve also seen people try to use their 3X fixed scope for western hunting and expect to drop a mule deer at 300 yards. Not that it couldn’t be done, but it couldn’t be done by these hunters. The point is, you need a scope that fits your likely hunting conditions.

If your primary tactic is hunting whitetail in woods and fields where 50- to 100-yard shots are the norm, a scope such as TRUGLO’s new TRU•BRITE™ 30 Hunter is ideal. With a 1-4X magnification, wide-view 24mm objective, and fully coated lenses for optimal light transmission, this scope works great for rapid target acquisition in tight quarters, yet will easily deliver the kill shot out to the average maximum 200-yard range of most hunters.

TRU-BRITE XTREME Rifle Scope

TRU•BRITE Xtreme Rifle Scope is available in 3-9x, 3-12x, and 4-16x

For those whose long-range endeavors including dropping western game at ranges up to and beyond 300 yards, a scope such as the TRU•BRITE™ Extreme IR Rifle scope is a good candidate. This scope offers several features favored by those who have developed the skill and confidence to make those outside shots, including illuminated Dual•Color Bullet Drop Compensating or standard duplex reticles in red, green, and black, large 44mm or 50mm objective lenses for a wide field-of-view and brightness in low-light conditions, and magnification options covering 3-9X, 3-12X, and 4-16X.

Shooting Basics
Okay, we’re not actually going to cover all of the shooting basics here because most of you already have those well in hand. What we want to zero in on are a few facets of shooting basics that many hunters tend to forget…especially when they are in the field.

First is trigger pull. Precise, consistent shooting accuracy demands precise and consistent trigger pull. There are two techniques to keep in mind when pulling the trigger. One is to position your body, grip, and trigger finger so that you are pulling straight back with the pad of your index finger. This is another example of where proper gun fit comes in. If you aren’t pulling the trigger straight back with the end of your index finger, it means you are pulling the trigger to the side and running the risk of pulling it all out of alignment as the shot breaks. This condition is particularly noticeable when shooting a pistol, but it also has a detrimental effect when shooting rifles as well. Always pull straight back on the trigger in a slow, steady pull. The second technique is to follow through the trigger pull after the shot breaks. Simply put, keep pulling straight back on the trigger after the shot goes off. If you immediately let up on the trigger after the break (for example, to cycle the bolt for a follow-up shot), you risk disturbing the rifle alignment before the bullet leaves the barrel. Following up on the shot also keeps you in place to better see what is happening downrange. Did you hit or miss? Did the animal drop or is it running for cover? Stay calm, follow up the trigger pull, and observe.

Staying calm is also a key part of long-distance shooting accuracy during the shot cycle—particularly breathing control. In order to maintain a steady target lock and execute a well-placed shot when high magnification and adrenaline wreak havoc on platform stability, timing the shot with your breathing cycle is critical. Your body and sight alignment is most stable at the bottom of your breathing cycle (exhale). When you’re ready to make the shot, the goal is to lengthen the bottom of your breathing cycle (not hold your breath!) and break the shot midway through that extension. Focusing on your breathing cycle will help you calm down when things get tense.

Practice Basics
Now that you have your equipment and shooting fundamentals in check, it’s time to put them to practice.

It’s an old saw that bears repeating, but bench performance doesn’t necessarily translate to performance in the field. You may be able to stay in the ten ring at 200 yards from the bench, but it’s tough to do that when you’re stretched across a boulder or leaning your rifle against a tree. Fortunately, practicing under realistic field conditions (or as close to them as you can get) will serve you well when that trophy is standing on the ragged edge of your comfort zone.

Once you have your rifle zeroed, you should spend your practice sessions shooting from various positions away from the bench. Bring your hunting pack to the range, throw it on the ground and practice shooting prone at various distances. Do the same while sitting, shooting freehand, shooting with sling support, and shooting while propped against a vertical support. You may be surprised that your effective maximum shooting distance changes significantly with each shooting position. The same is true if you use shooting sticks or a monopod. Until you actually practice with these supports, you’ll never know your limits or be able to improve your accuracy at longer distances.

A side benefit of practicing for long-distance shots is the improved accuracy you’ll gain when shooting at closer distances. If you are also a bowhunter, you know that when you practice regularly at 50 or 60 yards, those 20- to 30-yard shots are as easy as buttering bread. The same is true when shooting a rifle. The difference is that you must be cognizant of changes in bullet trajectory and parallax changes due to scope magnification. That is one of the advantages of having a scope with a BDC reticle, which is available with TRUGLO’s TRU•BRITE™ Extreme IR Rifle scope. You can calibrate the scope to most centerfire cartridges on the market today, giving you precise and confident shot placement out to 600 yards.

And Finally
TRU-SEE reactive splatter target
Make life easier on yourself and maximize your range time by using high-visibility targets such as the TRU•SEE Splatter targets by TRUGLO. Their bright green impact rings allow you to see your point-of-impact at long distances much better than conventional paper targets. Using TRU•SEE™ Splatter targets will significantly reduce your zeroing time, and keep you from having to wait for the “all clear” every time you need to check your target.

As you can see, a lot goes into extending your effective (ethically lethal) shooting distance. Refine your setup to suit your needs, then practice the basics both on the bench and off. Then, whether that trophy is 20 yards or 200 yards away, you can shoulder your rifle with confidence.

AR Essentials
By Doug HowlettIMG_6307_header While the AR market remains more than steady, though perhaps slightly off-pace from the red hot buying frenzy of 2013, the tactical accessories market is blazing right ahead. It makes sense, now that so many people own an AR or two or more, it is only natural these savvy gunowners will want to trick out and customize their rifles to match their intended purpose or, quite simply, to make them look even cooler.

That is, after all, one of the great attractions of this firearm platform; it is so easily customizable, that every gun can be tricked out to match its owner’s personality and purpose no matter whether it is competition, hunting, self-defense or simply plinking. Following are seven essentials every AR owner will want to consider.

Handguards – Also simply referred to as a rail by many operators, this is where your forward hand will grip the rifle (or for many tactical instructors, just before it) and where you will run your Picatinny rails for rapid attachments of many other accessories. AR-15s with quad-rails certainly had their day—when shooters simply wanted as many railed attachment points as possible. While quad-railed systems are still common, modular systems that allow the addition of any number of small rail panels (M-Lock, Key-Mod, Etc.) are rapidly taking over. These options simply expand the possibilities for accessories.  Consider this the foundation of your platform when it comes to accessories such as lights, bipods, vertical grips and more as this is the area many will attach.

Sighting Systems – Is your AR for varminting or hunting hogs over open fields and hillsides? Then you’ll want a quality variable optic that will allow you to deliver pinpoint accuracy at longer ranges. For more close-up targets or if magnification is not an issue for your hawk eyes, a quality red dot is maybe more up your alley. Since ARs are often used for closer targets (30 to 200 yards) red dot sights provide quick, accurate target acquisition and can be adjusted for extremely bright or low-light shooting.

Tru-Brite 30 Series

Tru-Brite 30 Series 1-6x24mm

Variable magnification optics with a tactical pedigree are the most preferred route for pinpoint accuracy out to ranges beyond 100 yards and having the option to adjust the magnification for both optimal sighting at longer distances and for lower or higher light can be helpful. TRUGLO®’s new TRU•BRITE™ 30 Series of scopes offers shooters a choice of 1-4x or 1-6x from a 30mm tube. The magnification ring boasts a quick adjustment lever, easy to work when wearing tactical gloves and two-precalibrated BDC turrets in calibers .223 (for 55-grain bullets) and .308 (for 168-grain bullets) for adjusting aim out to 800 yards away.  With a true 1x minimum power, and the ability to zoom in to 4x or even 6x, this style optic works well for fast close-range shooting and reaching out to medium distances with precision. This combination often fits the bill for a 5.56mm tactical, yet practical, carbine.

 

TRU--TEC 30mm Red Dot

TRU•TEC 30mm Red Dot with integrated laser

Lasers – Rail-mounted lasers either beneath the barrel, above it or even along the sides can be great for rapid target acquisition, easy sighting as the laser rests directly on the target at the sight of impact thus building confidence in the shooter and work great in low light situations when many defensive situations likely take place. For an ingenious take on the laser, check out the TRUGLO® TRU•TEC™ 30mm Red Dot Sight with an Integrated Laser. The unique combination incorporates a built-in side-mounted laser that gives the shooter a choice between a crisp red dot sighting system or direct laser on the target. A quick detach lever allows for rapid mounting and dismounting of the optic and it is built at a natural co-witness height so it can be used in conjunction with back-up sights.

TRUPOINT Laser Light Combo

TRU•POINT Laser Light Combo

Lights – When it comes to utilizing a firearm for home defense, the majority of situations will be in low light. For that reason, many AR users like to have a weapon-mounted light to help flood the areas where they may need to aim with bright, white light. Manufacturers have done an excellent job of creating lightweight, small-scale lighting systems that attach directly to the Picatinny rail of an AR. Some provide the option to remain on or to turn on only when a grip-mounted button is depressed. A unique take on the latter is the TRU•POINT™ LASER/LIGHT COMBO, which combines both shining light with an optional use laser lighting system. This particular light features a medium-to-wide flood, superior to narrower beams for most defensive purposes. The integrated laser (available in red or green) includes windage and elevation adjustments, allowing the beam to be either aligned to the bore, or zeroed to an exact point-of-impact at a given distance.

Forward Grip – Gripping the handguard with a natural shooting position can twist the wrist of the foreward hand at an almost unnatural angle. Vertical and angled grips can great not only a more comfortable hold, but a surer handle on the front end of an AR when engaged in fast-paced shooting scenarios or tactical simulations. Like virtually everything used in conjunction with the AR, these are designed to quickly attach directly to the rail.

TAC POD Bipod

TAC•POD Adjustable Folding Bipod

Bipods – For a steady rest when shooting at targets down range, a compact, rail-mounted bipod folds out of the way when not needed and with an easy flip, can be set and extended in seconds. The legs adjust independently when shooting from uneven surfaces or lying prone on the ground.

 

Sling – Whether practicing tactical carry techniques or using your AR for hunting, a sling makes toting your rifle a much simpler—and comfortable—task. Think of a rifle sling the way you think of a handgun holster—as a critical implement that connects the weapon to the shooter. Single-point, two-point (similar to a traditional sling) and three-point slings are all an option, with the single-point attaching behind the receiver and worn like a bandolier slung over the torso and a three-point sling, which is slightly more complicated but can hold the gun in a more secure position.

The fun of owning an AR is experimenting with all of these accessories and finding out which setup works best for you and for the type of shooting you typically do.

Comparing Releases
By Brad Fenson
TRR_0013_Wide
I have to admit that I’m extremely fussy when it comes to which mechanical release to use with my bow. I believe it comes from my long-held affinity for marksmanship values stemming from my years of hunting and shooting rifles. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind—the better the trigger, the more accurate and consistent the shot.

A release is an interesting device, capable of holding back extreme weight with a simple hook or caliper. Releasing that weight smoothly and consistently is paramount to anyone being a good archer. The release is likely one of the biggest advancements in archery, as anyone that used to shoot fingers can attest.

When I was at the Archery Trade Association show earlier this year I checked out some new releases and used them to shoot a variety of bows. I learned a few things and have now become even fussier about what I’ll use.

If you’re looking for a new release, try to compare an open-hook with a caliper or jaw-design release. The best way to narrow down your preference is to look at the options.

DETONATOR

The TRUGLO Detonator is streamlined, fast and accurate. It uses an open-hook single-jaw design for fast and easy loading, especially with string loops. Shooting the release, I found it easy to attach to the string loop without even looking, which could save time and reduce movement when hunting. The trigger was sweet and broke clean and crisp. The shooter does have the ability to adjust the trigger pull to make it extremely lightweight.

TRUGLO Detonator with BOA system

The release just felt good in the hand, which is one of the biggest considerations. The forward trigger position adds safety and draw advantages. Plus, the release is made to last with stainless steel wear-free jaws and firing mechanism, and the head itself rotates fully to ensure there is never torque on the string.

My favorite feature of any TRUGLO release is the BOA technology in the release strap. A dial and wire system increases tension on the strap to hold it in place. You simply pop the dial up to release the tension to take the release off or reposition it. The wrist strap itself is easy to adjust with the BOA system, and will fit everyone from junior shooters to people with large wrists. The BOA system was designed for comfort and allows for unlimited adjustment to accommodate different custom fits for clothing or changing conditions—especially in the colder months.

One of the features I liked best on the Detonator was the one-inch of adjustment in the connection rod, allowing you to custom fit the release to your exacting standards. The adjustment increments—six holes spaced at 3/16th of an inch—are extremely fine, allowing for an easy fit your hand, shooting style, and trigger finger.

The rod on the Detonator is notably superior to many other brands, which often offer no adjustment, limited adjustment, or require threading or cutting to shorten the rod-to-trigger length.

When you are glassing, traveling, or just want the release out of the way, there is pivot that locks the release up or down, keeping it out of the way when doing anything besides shooting. Simply click it into the center position when you want to shoot.

NITRUS

Any seasoned archer will immediately see the quality and engineering in the NITRUS line of releases. They are similar looking to the Detonator line, but have a dual caliper jaw design for smooth consistent release from the string or D-loop.

The NITRUS is also available with the BOA or Velcro versions. As described in the Detonator line, this Cadillac of releases comes with the same rod/yoke adjustments.

If you’ve been looking for an upgrade to your current release, the NITRUS is the one you’ll want to check out. It is the top of the line, and is worth a look.

SPEED•SHOT XS BOA

Speed Shot XS BoaThe Speed Shot XS BOA has the dual-jaw design that also works great on D-loops. Like the Detonator, there is over one inch of length adjustment to custom fit the release for any sized shooter and five color matching covers. They also offer the Speed Shot XS BOA in a junior model with specialized wrist strap to accommodate smaller shooters.

The BOA system has been a favorite of mine for many years, as it allows me to keep the release at the perfect length no matter what the conditions.

The caliper or dual-jaw release itself is compact and easy to attach. Simply pull the trigger to open the jaws and grab the D-loop or string.

The Speed Shot XS BOA is an economical option for those looking for a mechanical release. ThSpeed Shot XS BOA is a great entry-level release or one for a junior shooter that might want to look at different options as they grow.

Comparing Arrow Rests
By Brad Fenson

comparing arrow rests brad fenson 1U7A6840

Archers have a tough choice to make when selecting an arrow rest. Do you want a full-capture rest that your arrow shoots through, or do you want a drop-away rest that is limb driven or powered by buss cable? The full capture has no moving parts and ensures your nocked arrow is always in place no matter what angle you hold your bow. A drop-away is thought by many to be more accurate and easy to tune. There is no contact with the rest after the release of the string, allowing your arrow to fly free without any contact.

There isn’t a bad choice when you look at technologies offered today. It comes down to personal preferences and the style of hunting you want to engage in. Are you a consistent treestand hunter, or do you prefer spot-and-stalk? That might be the question that leads you to the perfect rest.

Look at the options below to help you make an informed decision.

 

UP-DRAFT LIMB-DRIVEN DROP-AWAY ARROW REST

TRUGLO UP•DRAFT Drop-Away Arrow Res

A drop-away rest is inherently more beneficial for archers who may have less than perfect form as the arrow leaves the rest sooner, and therefore, you have less time to affect it. It also provides an accuracy advantage for seasoned shooters who pay attention to every little detail of their bow and shooting form.

The UP-DRAFT LIMB-DRIVEN DROP-AWAY ARROW Rest is a good example of a fall-away rest loaded with features to ensure consistency and accuracy. The drop-away operates on a torsion spring that lifts the rest when drawing your arrow and is pulled out of the way with the movement of the limb when the bowstring is released. Thorough design and good quality components ensure there is no launcher bounce back to recontact your arrow.

No bow press required to install this rest and instructions are easy to follow. The drive string can be attached to the top or bottom limbs, providing an advantage depending on the model of your bow, and where accessories may dictate which limb you use. The rest can be used for left or right handed shooters.

Rubber dampeners silence arrow loading where arrows contact the launcher. The rubber inserts can be changed out, and each rest comes with five colors to choose from.

The Up-Draft Limb-Driven Drop-Away Arrow Rest can provide faster arrow stabilization on a well-tuned bow because there is no contact.

MSRP $74.00-$86.00

STORM™ CAPTURE ARROW REST

TRUGLO STORM arrow restOne of the biggest selling features of a full-capture rest is ease of installation. Bolt it on the bow, adjust your windage and elevation to the bow, and you’re done. With no moving parts, you eliminate timing issues associated with a rest driven by the movement of the bow.

TRUGLO’s STORM™ Capture Arrow Rest uses adjustable brushes to hold your arrow at almost any angle. The portion of the rest your arrow sits on, sometimes referred to as the launcher, is designed to have the flexibility to ensure proper arrow flight with minimal contact. The launcher and brushes that hold an arrow are replaceable if you do lots of shooting. Reduced arrow contact means you are ensuring good performance without losing speed and accuracy.

When compared to competitor’s brands, the brushes are designed and placed to eliminate vane contact with the rest, which means less maintenance with arrows and vanes with this rest.

The brushes are narrow to help with vane clearance as the arrow leaves the rest, for fast and quiet arrow release. This rest is durable for hunting but well suited for 3-D and target shooters too.

The rest is quick and easy to install, and can be used for left-and-right–handed bows. There are five color matching inserts to customize your arrow rest.

MSRP $49.00 black only
