    Plastic BB"s for an airsoft gun or similar plastic beads from a craft store (AC Moore etc)
    Fill a plastic bag with material and tie a knot.
    Leave bag so that the bag is lightly flexible.
    Place knot end into a stocking and tie off like above.
    Place knot end into a sock and do again like above.
    Home made bag complete.

    Get some poly pellets/doll fill from the internet or arts and craft store
    fill a sock to desired level
    cut off excess and sew shut(doesn't have to be pretty or perfect stitches)
    put that sock in another sock and cut excess and sew shut and cover thread with some shoe goo for protection
    Done unles you want to sew on some 550 cord to use as carry/ stock attachment point

    I make my own. Then fill it with the poly pellets.

    I made my own by filling a gun sock with plastic BB's, then zip tying the end shut. Then I put that inside another gun sock with the zip tied end in first and tied it shut. Works great, but I think now I want a wedge style... I do have a sewing machine that I made a shooting mat with so I could make my own, but I just don't want to.

    Can anyone recommend a good lightweight, water resistant, wedge style bag with filler included?

    I sell mine, but without filler as it gets more costly to ship em that way. Mine are made from twill and are light weight. They could get wet, as long as you let them dry out afterwards.

    These are the two styles I have made. One is just round with a handle. The other is the one I like best. It is patterned after the str8 laced bags.

    Mine are full of either airsoft bb's or dry beans. The next one I make will be poly beads.

    Use 1000d fabric so that they will last. I like the coated 1000d so that they are water resistant. The cords are 550 paracord.
