1.  Standard Rests 

Rifles are fired utilizing sand bag front rests which may be supported on a pedestal that does not co-act with the sand bag to restrict upward and/or rearward movement, and rear rests comprised of a sand bag which supports the rifle between the rear of the pistol grip and the toe of the butt stock. The front rest may NOT be attached in any way to the rear rest. The rear rest must not be mechanical in nature. The front or the rear rest may NOT be attached to the table.

GUIDING MEANS will NOT be allowed. Any device, addition, contour or dimension on any rifle of any class, designed or adapted to co-act with mating or reciprocal features of a rest to guide its return to firing position shall be conclusively deemed to constitute guiding means.

2.  Unrestricted Rests may incorporate guiding means and adjustments for elevation and windage in either or both components. Unrestricted rests may be of one-piece construction for front and rear. Rests may NOT be attached to the bench.
