Shooting Bench

Postby Shepard » Tue Jun 03, 2014 10:56 am

Here are some pictures of my new shooting bench. The top and the angle wedges and pipe flanges came from Ben Chappell. I got the pipe for the legs. Its build very well -- Ben did a great job. His plans are very heavy duty. The legs are 2 inch pipe. I say its strong enough to put a car engine on it and have room for more weight. He wanted it heavy so it would move. The only movement will be the earth shaking its so strong.

It's looks great Jerry. Do you mind standing to shoot it? You will be able to see groundhogs better from a standing bench.

I really do like the fact I can stand and shoot. I feel my body is in a better position. Makes me feel younger.

Hey Shep maybe mount some wheels from a Razor style scooter at one end and a handle on the other. If you had a way to clamp the legs to the bottom you could roll the entire bench away when your done.

you could use a simple 1/4 inch bolt for an axle.

The whole tablet breaks down into 4 pieces. The whole table weighs 75-80lbs. Even though it's heavy it was made to travel. I have to drill a 1/2" hole in the top of the leg to put a round rod through to take the legs on and off. They tighten very nicely on the pipe thread. There are places we go to shoot a 1000 yd and there are no benches. This makes any place a great place to shoot.

I needed to show the little update I did to my shooting table Ben built me. I made a bracket that holds my market umbrella to the table. Makes it nice and shady.

I have shot standing and sitting off of this bench. When shooting in WV -- Ben said he saw my bench move according to my breathing. I had several fliers during this shoot. So --- I cut the legs down to 31 inches and am using a drummers throne for a seat. The seat has a screw to adjust the height. I post some pictures of it the next time I use it. Ben did a great job designing it.

I picked up one of these wheeled shooting benches several years ago
keep it in the greenhouse and roll it in and out between rain storms up here in the NW
