Thread: My Shooting Bench and solution to the flinch

    My Shooting Bench and solution to the flinch

    Well after i developed a flinch i decided it my be down to poor shooting position more than anything so i got about designing a shooting bench. My master plan involved making a bench that could fit on top of a workmate to save having to make a full table. So i popped off to B&Q and bought a piece of Ply 2 foot by 4 foot. I then spent several hours penciling on different possible designs until i settled on what i then had someone who is a bit more handy then me cut out with his jigsaw (something i don't own anyway.) I then nailed a piece of wood to the under-side of the table that would be used to hold the top in place between the vice of the workmate. After a couple of coats of varnish it was finished and all i needed was a stool to shoot off that i acquired from argos for a fiver. Anyway went out this afternoon to give it a go and it was highly successful. I managed to get the gun zeroed in 5 shots and there was no flinch so i assume that had arisen due to a bad shooting position. Its a good system as it collapses very small for storage. I just need to varnish the underside and the sides and maybe re-do the wood bar that fits in the vice as its not in a straight line but it doesn't bother me as it works fine. Thanks for all the advice on how to get over the flinch and im glad i managed.

    I have seen the problem George the bolt is on the wrong side of the rifle and you have the bench top on the stalkmate upsidedown

    I was going to make a "smart" comment on the bolt and backwards table but thought I would leave that to others

    Glad to hear your sorted, or on the way to being sorted.

    Just shot a perfect clover leaf at 100 yards with it and the flinch is gone. Will give prone shooting a go and then i will know im over it but i think it was mainly down to a bad stance first off.
