Hah!

Thanks for the kind words, Wheelgun. If there is a next one, or a remake of that one, you might tell folks about the purpose of that extra wide shoulder flap on the "shooting side" of your vest.

Silhouette Video

Wheelgun,

Enjoyed your Silhouette intro. Video:
Informative, it flowed nicely; you are easy to understand.

I'm guessing you have conducted presentations before?

Your video should be a Big help to new silhouette shooters.

What benefits does a shooting vest provide?

Benefits of Shooting Vest

http://www.steelchickens.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=46:si lhouette-vest&catid=41ools&Itemid=60

I wonder about the benefits as well. Gotta help to stay organized having those pockets.

A vest helps stabilize the shooter and over time conforms to a shooting position and helps the shooter return to that consistent position with each shot.

It's one of those things that new shooters never believe they need even though all the experienced shooters use them. If you care at all about hitting targets, you need a vest and Chris Winstead makes the best vest by far.

Also take note of the extra wide shoulder flap on the shooter's trigger-finger side. When in shooting position, that extra wide flap will wrap around the butt of the rifle, providing some extra friction to help hold the butt firmly in the pocket of the shoulder.

Wheelgun,
Thank you so much for having put your video together and for Sophia to put up this page. Nice job!! RFC is another place where Metallic Silhouette has additional information into the sport. Pictures/Video can be louder than words!
Congratulations!!
