I have the cheaper of the two and it's great for spending a couple of hours at the range. Fits between the benches at Chabot at a reasonable angle, rolls up small, etc. For an Appleseed I actually prefer my carpet square because it's larger and more plush which is nice for dropping down onto it and spending all day, but that would be a pain to drag to and from the regular benches for a quick shoot and it wouldn't really fit, anyway.

I was gonna order this mat from Midway, but they want to charge $15 shipping on a $25 item. I know $40 would still be a good deal, but charging over 50% of the item price for shipping is just ridiculous to me!

They're pretty big and bulky.

Got mine and am pretty happy with it. Nice thick padding.

Ordered the Pro Series Mat today. I agree that their shipping is strange, but it does seem to represent actual cost. After playing around with their options I found it cheapest to purchase the mat separately from my other stuff (10/22 parts and a couple boxes of Wolf Match) because everything else could be shipped "standard ground" but the mat had to ship UPS ground.

I have one that I bought during their black Friday sale, can't go wrong. And for that price, I was originally planning on picking up a exercise mat to use but saw this and went for it. Yea shipping was a bit much but it was worth it.

What makes a shooting mat good? I'm thinking about just using a piece of carpet.

Carpet is perfectly suitable.

These are great mats at regular price and even better on sale. Nothing like shooting in comfort all day at Appleseed.

Thanks for the heads-up on the sale...I bought one when I saw your post (pennys dad) two weeks ago. It arrived in plenty of time for Piru's Appleseed (which was today) and it was worth the money (on sale). I figured we will be using it to practice NPA, transitions, and dry fire...at home. Thanks again!
