Re: shooting table

Here's one you can build yourself. Thicker the plywood, heavier the bench.

portable shooting bench plans

Re: shooting table

almost any solid device will suffice in supporting a gun as we all know.
type of terrain plays a major roll in how we should select a shooting bench.
for relativly flat terrain any of those shown would work at least fairly well.
but for uneven/hilly terrain adjustable legs are a must.
joels pictures dont do his justice in that regard.
he was too focused on his damned gun when he took that.
but look at the terrain under and in front of his bench.
now picture any of the others sitting on that spot.
also look at what the guns are sitting on.
what angle would the other guns be pointing if they were sitting on that spot?
what would need to be done in order to change that angle?
how long would that take? say for example your gun was pointed at a mid
elevation level on the opposite hillside. well you of coarse could have used
a bipod which would have been better. but you'd be taking your eyes off the
animal in order to make bipod leg adjustments. and or adding to or taking
away rear bags. and possibly both.
joel on the other hand simply winds his up or down without ever taking his
eye away from the scope.
now in the rare event, you failed to execute a perfect first round hit
or even worse made a bad hit, what could happen? well its entirly possible
the animal could be hobbeling down hill as fast as it could still go. and there
you are doing what?
want to know what joels doing? well he's still right on that animal waiting
for an oppurtunity to shoot again right now
and it was probably another miss
for the record i never saw that bench or had anything to do with it.
could it be improved upon? yeah it could, it could be more like mine.
but its close, its close.
