Default Shooting Bench

Nice Work!!!

All you need now is one of those portable tents to keep dry and not get sunburn, open on all sides and of course, the Bar-B-Que and ice chest.

Great place to spend time. Congrats!!

That thing looks great. I'd like to see picture of the top from looking downward at it.

Thanks. I wanted to make it to last. I figure as I get older I won't want to be fixing things, or too old to even be able to!! This past weekend my grandson and his dad used it for a couple of hours. That's one reason I made it, for other folks to use. Sometimes it gets allot of use.

Thanks. I hope to never live where I can't have somewhere to shoot.

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
Thanks. It is the backstop. I made a retaining wall about 4 feet tall into a hillside. Gives me a good level and flat place to sit targets. I've got visions of sitting there and talking guns too. Gonna have a roof over it next year hopefully so I figure that'll be a great place to hang a porch swing.

Thanks. I plan to put a roof over it next year, open on all sides like you mention too and have a place where we can stand our guns too.

Thanks. Sorry it took me so long to get the picture, I just did see the last two post today. Got almost all of it in the picture by standing on a step ladder on the tailgate of my truck. If you want any measurements let me know. I can sketch something up.

Default best shooting set up ever.....

Wow, if any shooting bench/setup were to make into Home & Garden magazine, that should be the one. Awesome job, making civil engineers jealous without even trying....i just like looking at it. I have to add the property provides an ideal setting for that also...but still....

Thanks for sharing too!!
