Caldwell Shooting Supplies, a division of Battenfeld Technologies, introduced the next-generation model of the company's famous Lead Sled. The new Lead Sled 3 incorporates a number of upgrades designed to help shooters at the range.

The Lead Sled 3 is designed to secure a firearm onto a shooting bench and keep it trained on the target with minimal input from the shooter, allowing gun owners to accurately test firearms or zero scopes or iron sights. The rest is also designed to reduce felt recoil by up to 95 percent.

The new rest features a skeletonized front rest that is constructed from non-marring materials, ensuring that a firearm's finish won't be damaged while using the Lead Sled. Caldwell also improved the rear buttstock cradle by including an advanced recoil-reducing pad and a cradle made from the same non-marring materials found in the front rest.

The company also incorporated a "no-wobble" elevation ram at the front of the sled that allows shooters to easily stay on target for follow-up shots. The rest features four inches of elevation adjustment with the combined use of the adjustment wheel at the front of the rest and a rear foot that is also adjustable for height. The unit uses three separate feet that are made from non-marring material to avoid damage to a shooting bench.

In addition, Caldwell's Lead Sled 3 is designed to hold up to 100 pounds of lead shot or two 25-pound barbell weights. The suggested retail price on the new Caldwell Lead Sled 3 is $159.99.

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.
