Default Wanting a Tipton gun vise...

But I'm also checking out the Tipton "best" gun vise, but it's twice as much... Is it worth it for someone who's guns are just a hobby?

I have both. It's just a hobby for me as well. The "best" vice is much more versatile though.

I have the less expensive Tipton and the MTM " Maintainence ctr"

What really runs a lot are the "Bench Shooting" rests, a few I saw were well north of $350. I have the K-Zone from MTM, and I have extra bags to mount and Stabilize both the rest and the Stock of the Long gun. You can always buy a "Vice" Block to fit the gun your working on and secure it to your workbench. The bench I have was left here by a prior owner, about 6 Ft. Long and 3Ft. Deep, it looks similar to, but not Quite like the bench Harbor Freight sells. It's got one very long Draw, and three smaller ones.
