Most shooting mats are way too formal for me. I don’t do a lot of true precision shooting so I often don’t really need all the features that a hardcore shooting mat offers. However, there are times when it would be nice to have a lightweight ground covering when I am on the range. The RECON Shooting Mat from CrossTac looks pretty much exactly like what I envision as my perfect shooting mat.
It features 2 ply 500D nylon construction. The nylon is polyurethane coated for water resistance. One side of the mat is Multicam and the other is A-TACS AU so you can blend into a variety of environments. Both sides feature what CrossTac calls their Bipod Rail which is a clever piece of sewn down webbing that gives you something to load your bipod against while shooting. The RECON Shooting Mat also has large grommets at each corner so it can be staked down in windy conditions. I could also see something like this serving as an emergency shelter or ground cover.
