Shooting bench
 
1 Attachment(s)
Thought I'd post a picture of my shooting bench. I made a wood form and poured the bench top out of concrete. It's got rebar in it to reinforce the top and also tie the legs in. They are welded to 1/4" thick plates that were put into the bottom of the form. It sits on three concrete pillars. Around that I made a 10' square patio out of local creek rocks. The 4 corners have concrete pillars on footers that I plan to build a roof over next year sometime.

Thats an awesome piece of work there...man how I envy you folks that can build a private range on your own land.

I LIKE!!! Thats a GREAT set-up :)

What am I look'in at Jim, 100 yds out to the backstop?? Kinda hard to judge from the pic.

I don't think I'd even need to shoot to enjoy it. With a setting like that, give me a cold one and I can just TALK guns for hours. ;) Ken
