Concrete shooting bench
 
hello
I am on the Board of a new gun club forming in N.GA.
We plan on having Concrete shooting benches and I need the approximate
cost.
We could have many as 16 concrete benches.

regards
Wm Parker

Our gun club poured their own. Sonotube to form the 3 legs and a simple frame to pour the cement for the table. Chairs are not attached but cabled to the bench so they can be moved to either side. The only picture I have is with my spotting scope mount but you might be able to see enough to get an idea of how they are built.

Thank you both for your replies.

I will pass your information to the other Board members.

Would you mind if I ask where your gun club is located in N.GA?

Find the most local to you firm that makes concrete products to find out what it would cost to make a top form to your specs and pour some complete with some crossed rebar inside.
I agree with making your own 3 legged peds as the top will sit on 3 without rocking or need to shim (just like any tripod).

The club I shoot has concrete benches, they sit on concrete blocks laid in a T shape.

I agree with JT.

Unless your Club has money to burn, make your own, (a few at a time) far cheaper than hiring someone to do it.

Decide the measurements required and get someone local to make up/weld the frames for you a few at a time as you need them. Make up two wooden top frames yourselves. Two hours, two lads/ladies, some aggregate & concrete and some mesh for stability.

Its got to be cheaper than hiring in and paying a contractor, unless the contractor is a Club member and is going to see you right.

Definitely make your own. Pretty simple process. One thing to remember, the slab that holds them. I shoot at several clubs where the slab the benches sit on is too lightly constructed. When someone walks on the slab behind the benches, you can see your scope move on the target. These are clubs with solid concrete benches, both the top and the bases. The slab is as important as the benches.

I helped make a few at my club.

I welded up the legs and cross beams out of i beams, and welded some anchors at the top and set it in the forms and we had a concrete truck deliver the structural concrete.

Once poured and set, we attached three boat trailer jacks with wheels on the legs and flipped them over.

that way, we raise the boat jacks and we can wheel them across the concrete pad that is the shooting line.

Regards,
Crankster

Heavy benches on a bad/light base = trouble.

Kinda looks like that 800# is gonna be pushing that base block into the ground over time?

Thomasconnor 12-01-2019 05:51 PM

The center block was a precaution four years ago. It has been removed as it did nothing.

That is a very heavy trailer/platform supported at the corners. I believe it has a 10,000 pound capacity and was used to move a skid loader...Tom

Makes me think I should have kept my dad's dozer trailer after he died.....
Probably could have built a substantial table on it from some of the junk steel/iron too.
Too soon old, too late smart.
