    Are you able to post a pic? Is it flat or grooved? How thick?

    I’m seriously considering looking into this as a side business.

    If nothing else, for the home business write offs.
    Maybe in a few days. With the basement renovations going on, I cant get anywhere near it. Everything is piled in there right now. It's just looks like a black rubber mat. Very durable stuff, wont scratch up your guns, protects your bench top, and nothing I've dripped or dropped on it has ever dont the slightest bit of damage to it.

    Buy yourself a Yoga pad. Which is the same thing as one of those blue foam back packing/camping mats that used to be $10 in Wally World. Try Princess Auto for the same thing.
    Or go buy your own towel. snicker. A hunk of scrounged carpet works well too. People are forever doing reno's and leaving their old carpets on the side of the road. If you work or know somebody who works in an office building, the maintenance guy is worth getting to know. Same thing. Carpeting is always being pitched.
    Plan 'B' would be a hunk of indoor/outdoor carpet. Probably a 'purchase' item due to offices not using it much, but it's not horribly expensive or hard to find. Wally World will sell you a polyester carpet for $4.88.

    It may not be what you are looking for but I have used a Real Avid Universal Smart Mat for a few years. It works well for me. It is 43 x 16".

    Does yours have the magnetic parts holder as part of it? If so, have you found any small metal gun parts that have been kept in it have become magnetized and then attract dust? Or is this a non-issue?

    That AR one is nice, but it’d be $50 after tax and shipping.

    Good idea with the yoga mat, too, I’ll check the local buy and sells and Kijiji.
    Donít order from Wolverine Supplies. PM me for details.

    If you are going to buy a 'foam' pad make sure it is a closed-cell foam and not an open-cell foam.

    It does have the magnetic plastic tray. Only the one small space at the one end is magnetized. I do not use the magnetized spot as much as the other parts of the tray that does not have the magnets.

    I have no idea what the difference is between closed cell yoga mat foam and open cell yoga mat foam.

    Is closed cell going to feel more like neoprene?

    Open cell is a bit sponge like. Oil/water are likely to go through it or into it, albeit slowly. You couldn't wipe it off, it would have to be disposed of.

    Cheap, big, and if they keep dog pee from soaking through, Hoppes shouldn't be a problem.
    This is what I use. Just lay it over my regular pad that I take shooting or an old towel. Soaks up the Hoppe's without letting it leak through.
    Adulting is hard. Just let me read books, drink tea, and learn to shoot.
