going to build a new bench this spring
« on: January 01, 2021, 11:14:25 PM »
i think its time to build a new shooting bench , i went out to cover it up today and just decided its time , i built it out of scrap wood from the job sites so it didnt hold up more than a few years  , this time im going to spring for pressure treated ,route the edges , make it for righty lefty

i have a hillbilly range , we just take card board box's with a orange spray bomb dots , i have 32 acres and have a small timbered mountain about 200 feet high i use for a back drop ,and shoot from a small hill so trajectory is down

never cared for ranges , always got a Gym vibe from them , flex'n ,lol , theres that and i dont have to worry about getting shot by bubba

You're a lucky man, Hoop.

Yor "hillbilly" range is likely better than most non-hillbilly ranges. And you're definitely right about bubba.

Sounds like a good plan. Iíd love to have enough land to do that.

I consider myself blessed to have an outdoor 100m target range with gongs our to 400m just 15í from my house. $70 per year for my wife and me and counts towards my CMP eligibility. Iíve never even shot at an indoor range, it hasnít appealed to me enough to give it a try  :))

Thereís also some BLM land not far away when I want a tougher terrain experience with no people.

 :)) Me too! The longest range we have around here is 300 m and it takes me about half an hour to get there. Having your own private range I can only dream about.

I envy all these guys who can just drive to the desert and shoot away. We just don't have the land here to do this.

i sorta evolved over the years , very slowly i might add , i use to use the back of a chair i kept on my hill for a rest with a sandbag , and then maybe 5 years ago i slapped together a bench from scrap wood ,didnt put any thought into a plan , this time im going to have comfort in mind , and decent materials , also going to build a rack for weapons not in use and i have a spool i nabbed from the job that the lineman left that had heavy electrical cable on it im going to make into a table in case we get a jam and need a place to work on

going to bring hillbilly into the 21st century

Sometimes a basic or slightly modified picnic table can work pretty well.Can be used in multi positions for lefty or righty.

But it does give you an excuse to stop and eat. 'Man, I ran out of ammo, lets eat.' After getting done eating 'Oh look, I found more ammo' chuckles1 dance2 thumb1
