    Knee pads?

    I'm going to a class and need to buy some knee pads, can you please suggest something I can buy locally that are decent?

    I would look at volleyball knee pads. Not a lot of money and they are plentiful.

    Volleyball knee pads will certainly work. I prefer wearing a pair of "tactical" pants, such as those made by 5.11 that have interior pockets into which you can place foam pads. These remain in place all the time and do not constrict circulation.

    There are two Army Navy surplus stores on the Southeast side of Indy within a few miles of one another. Both have bins full of surplus knee pads.
    Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong,
    seldom turns out the way it does in a song.

    What kind of surface will your knees be meeting? If it's gravel or something similarly hard or abrasive, I would consider knee pads with a hard shell.

    Crye pants ... or arcteryx knee pads.

    You need to dress the part if you want to shoot good.

    Masonry knee pads from Home Depot or Lowe's. They are flat, so no rolling, and jelly filled for added comfort.

    Have used them at carbine and general purpose rifle classes for a long time.
    Herman Cain had ryyyeeetttts too. Wear a damn mask.

    I've never used knee pads or wished I'd had them, but on gravel ranges I've wished I'd had elbow pads a few times.

    Medium speed. Moderate drag.
