Another shooting bench



Log in to see fewer ads
Nothing ya'll haven't seen before, but here is mine. I belong to a range with a covered shooting line, targets out to 300 yards, but I also have a nice place to shoot at a Farm that's very peaceful. I made it heavy, but not so much that I can't move it. 2x6, 2x4, 5/8" Plywood. It is solid. Ordered a Caldwell Rock rest this morning, good price at Midway. This winter I will rebuild the seat, lower it a bit, add hinges to the top of it, so as to store targets, a level, and whatever.

You better see how high That Caldwell Rest sits before you lower the seat.

I have a Rock BR and use a drummer's throne for a seat. Lots of adjustment range, and I think there's a Charlie Watts joke in there somewhere, too...

Thanks. Luckily, I don't have any lefty shooting friends. Nice point on the drummer stool! I will check them out. Got the Caldwell Rock Deluxe rest yesterday, and assembled it. Nice. I was disappointed that it didn't come with rubber feet, just the pointy ones. I was planning to use an old rear bag I have, but after after trying it for size, I may get a Caldwell. I got fast service and good price from Midway!

My neighbor built me a shooting bench, with both sides, for left and right handed shooting,,

on occasion, when I want to shoot in a different direction, I will rotate the bench slightly, then sit on the left handed side,,

I can then shoot "across" the bench top, instead of straight ahead.
So, my dual sided bench gets used on both sides, by right handed shooters only..

Of course,, I am not only shooting at "paper targets",,,

Received my Caldwell Rock deluxe from midway assembled. I made a mistake by not ordering the rubber feet for it. Thanks for the comments and advice.
