Nicely done. You did what you had to do.
And this is precisely why I feel that using some of these ?portable? rests, do a hunter much good from a skill standpoint. Allow me to explain. When you drag a scaled down facsimile of your bench out to the field, you may be increasing your chances, but you aren?t increasing your skills. If all you do is treestand hunting, you will probably be okay. But it you mix it up, you might not be doing yourself any favors. This is why I think offhand practice is the most useful as it is often inevitable that you will end up taking an offhand shot. Or your follow-up shots will probably be offhand. When you get good offhand, everything else is really easy. I would implore everyone serious about handgun hunting to dedicate a good portion of your practice to shooting offhand.
