Shooting off your house’s deck

OK, for those who don’t live in the city…

There has got to be a better way to get a better rest.

The only augment I have used is a sandbag, but I would like to see photos of someone’s “deck rail bench” contraption/setup to get ideas on how/what to construct.

Suggestions?

I don't have a 'deck' but the kitchen window when open with the screen and the kitchen table against the wall is quite convenient. When the wife isn't home.

Re: Shooting off your house’s deck

Really! I'm serious...

All I can conger in my pee-brain is some type of hooks that will keep everything from coming back into me.

That leaves the "only leg" remaining.

One has to be able to move the sitting stool or chair so the whole enchilada (a Texas term) with you...

If you can watch Oprah and click off a downrange target a 500 yards, you guys have got something on the ball...

And bye the bye, doesn't your wife know what spent gun powder smells like?

This should have been posted in the 'humor' section!

I envy you!

Re: Shooting off your house’s deck

He's probably got a fan behind him blowing the smell out the window. What I really want to know is what warning system Roy has in place that gives him enough lead time to put the fan up, put the screen back in place, close the window and get the gun, ammo etc into the appropriate room before the Misses walks through the front door.

+1 this should be in the humor section...Thanks Roy.
