It’s been so long since I’ve been able to get in the shop. Made from some scrap plywood, This was a “quickie” project. Nuttin fancy, as you can see, but, it works gr8 for target shootin with a rifle. Adjustable up & down, nicely padded for those long days at the range, etc.. Thnks fer lookin. Now get out on the range & practice.

Roger, sometimes the “quickie” projects are the ones that work out the best. I’m gonna have to make one of these. Thanks for the post.

Good job Roger, but you’re gonna have to build a matching stool to sit on cuz I don’t think you can reach it from that hammock…..

Simple and functional. I really like the ability to adjust the height. Its been awhile since I got out to the range and that should make for a very enjoyable afternoon of target practice.

Nice job Roger. I need one of those to shoot snakes off my deck. Figure out a silencer to go with it as my neighbors are getting kinda jumpy.
