non ambi horst?

Anybody build a right or left handed only horst? I want to try a slightly smaller version of the horst by making a right hand only, just trying to figure on stability and how to plan it

Anyone have plans for a rotating shooting bench to use in the ground squirrel/prairie poodle fields? I guess I could design something, but if somebody has already gone through this I don't have to redesign the wheel.... I usually do better modifying an existing design to suit my needs....

I have a towable bench made with a discarded DR grass catcher chasis and Truck box. When you place a bench in the back of a truck with springs and stock suspension you are going to get a lot of rocking from the wind and your own movement on the springs. The only suspension on my towable bench is the rubber tires and they are pretty stiff even with no pressure in them. There are some portable trailer based shooting platforms that cost thousands because they are using a much bigger trailer for the base. If you can find a small utility trailer locally from a DR grass catcher, defunct welder, wood splitter etc you may be able to build something very useful as a portable shooting platform. If you can store it at the property for off road use only you won't have to worry about lights or registration.

Have you looked at the Caldwell BR Pivot bench? I have one with the plastic top. It's been on the back porch for the last 5 years, held up very well. The leveling legs are great. It comes apart in 4 pieces for transport, and came with a carrying bag.
