Default Need Help!! Shooting Bench!!

6 months ago or a little longer, I printed out several pics of a cheap, light weight shooting bench. This shooting bench looked a little like a streched out letter Z. The person who built the one that I printed stated how one could stabilize it better by making the legs a little longer. This bench was made of 2x8's or 2x10', and looked as though you could throw it one handed into the back of a pickup truck. I don't recall where I downloaded the pictures from. Since I down loaded the pictures, I have been in and out of the hospital 4 times and had to quit my job. I sure would appreciate it if someone could help me locate it.

Bob I hope all is well with you my friend! Here is a table from WM I've used for shooting, light weight and easy to carry.

I've seen some like these at Cabela's and Academy Sports.

I just received news that the OP has passed away on June 15th, God bless his family and thank you Bob for your service. I confirmed with his daughter this morning.

I can't tell you how sad I am. River Rat and I formed a friendship off line. I helped him get his dog back when he was in rehab and the dog was sent to a shelter. We exchanged PM's quite regularly and an occasional phone call. I hadn't heard from him in a while. I am truly deeply saddened by this news. He was a good, kind, generous, honest man.

I wonder where his dog is.

He was great friend! I had met him on another gun board and we would exchange jokes thru email and post on FB. He worked for a brass reseller and he sent me a box of 223 brass for reloading and a rail for my mini 14.
I noticed I had not seen any emails or activity lately and knew he was in bad health.

I will miss him too!
