Lyman Off-Hand Rifle Rest

The Lyman off-hand rifle rest, shown in the drawing, designed for sighting and testing rifles, is most useful for beginners in rifle shooting. It consists of a platform about five feet long by three feet wide placed lengthwise with the target. This platform is boarded up on three sides, viz.: On the right hand side (facing the target) and at both ends to the height of about five feet. From the top of these sides a covering of boards is so placed that when the shooter stands on the platform the right arm and the left hand rest on this covering, allowing the shooter to take the same position as when shooting off-hand. There are so many riflemen who learn to shoot in bad positions that this rest will not be comfortable to some. Those who will appreciate it most are the riflemen who shoot with the left hand well out on the barrel, the right elbow elevated and the butt of the rifle against the shoulder (not on the arm), or, in other words, those who hold a rifle about the same way they hold a shot-gun. With this rest it is easy to take the right position and keep it when firing. One can learn to tell where the bullet strikes before the marker shows it. It is especially good for the beginner in rifle shooting, for he is not liable to fall into that most common and worst of all faults, flinching. This habit of flinching comes principally from the fear of the report and recoil. When the rifle is held properly, the recoil is felt very little, even with heavy charges; and if one is to be a successful shot at any kind of shooting, he must have the courage not to consider the noise and kick of the gun, for any danger to the shooter is simply imaginary.
