    I went out the other day to shoot one of the birds to have that night for supper and found out that my .22 had aparently been bumped around and got the sights knocked off target so had to go zero it back in. My sand bag (which was a pantleg filled with corn and sewed shut) had been ripped and dumped so went looking for a good substitute for a sand sock and found a bag of rice. It worked great and reminded me that this could be a nice bonus to having a bag of rice in a BOB. If I needed to do any percise shooting then could lay the rifle along a solid limb, the hood of a vehicle, rocks or whatever and set the bag of rice under the foregrip then just squeeze it around a little to get right on target and help out a lot for any long range or high precision shots. It dosnt weigh much or take a lot of space and then if needed could also be cooked up for a meal.

    Even before the BOB, another good use is to heat the rice bag in the micro for a few minutes and use it as a heat wrap for sore spots on the body.

    Rice, it's not just for the VC.

    Another idea, will birds eat rice. If you put some on the ground where they would see it and wait for some meat to fly in.

    Actualy missed it the first time and the second one broke its neck rather than hitting it in the head.
