|I am a C 3-4 quad, without the use of hands or arms, and I have no problems at all zeroing in on target. With the SR-77 it's been great to get back into shooting again so now instead of watching while my friends shoot targets I can be part of it, a sport I love. The beautiful thing about the shooting rest is that you can go from shooting targets with an air rifle to hunting deer with a hi-powered with ease. The shooting rest is completely safe, using reasonable care, to both you and those with you.
