cheap silencing material
I saw a tip on another forum to check in the sewing/craft department at Walmart for cheap rest and arrowshelf silencing material. It's called Prestofelt and it comes in 9" x 12" sheets for 97 cents. It's got the peel off backing just like moleskin but it's thicker and tougher and it's made in the good old USA..... It comes in several colors. I got some black and some dark green.
Walmart haters (Bunny ) can check at their local craft/hobby store, I guess....

Good tip man, thanks!That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

Will definitely try this out. I put a limbsavers dropaway pad on my vulcan and I think it is nosier then the old moleskin..

Though I haven't tried it, when I was looking to see if the sticky backed felt was available locally I spotted velcro loop with self adhesive backing. The adhesive is pretty waterproof...it's a bit fuzzy...and you can either tease it up with a small comb to make it "fuzzier" or trim it down with scissors to make it shorter.
If I can't find the felt do you think a strip or two of that would work?

I've never personally tried it, but I've heard that people use it and it works great.

I work at walmart and get 10% discount. So 10% of 1 dollar is what? 10 cents? You pay 0.97, I pay 0.87"I have a passion for whitetail deer, not a passion for killing them. The fact that I deer hunt does not make me their enemy, but their guardian."
