I think it looks good. What did you use to fill it with? We would also drop 2 sides down off it to use on a saw horse or in some cases the side of a pick-up truck. The sides we would put rice in to help hold it in place.

OR.... you could just fold up a jacket, towel, backpack or whatever. What ever happened to the old military sling and position rest to put a bullet on target. LOL

Here's another Shooting Bag.
Now I know why they cost so much, it is a lot of work to make them.

Great looking bags. I usually make my own using legs cut from old jeans and filling them with sand and sewing shut. A little heavy but they work.

Way too fancy!!
I use old shot bags or just cut the leg off an old pair of jeans. Being a farmer I use wheat to fill. Works great as long as it does not get wet
