    Portable shooters bench

    Does anyone have a potable shooting bench they would be willing to lend / hire me for the weekend of 24th-25th may, been let down on another prepared to pay a modest fee and pay a deposit if required.

    Hi mate I've been looking into building my own and it's dead easy.

    Get something like this, cut yourself a top out of some decent ply and hey presto, cheap bench to suit your hand and body shape!!

    Also loads of plans online and a few vids on youtube.

    Hope it helps mate,

    I bought a cheap 'workmate' from Screwfix, took the ply off the top and replaced it with a shaped piece of kitchen work bench that I had knocking around.
    If anybody local to me wants a bit of black/grey marble effect kitchen work top, enough to make a shooting bench of their own, then get in touch.
    I might remind you, it is 25mm thick and very heavy.

    I have one of the folding MTM ones. Got it cheap on sale. You could have borrowed it (no charge) but getting it to you would be problematic!

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I tried using the one I have and it is too flimsy and 'bouncy' if that makes sense? With the recoil of the rifle it's difficult to follow through correctly. Maybe with a stronger bit of board it may improve though, I'll give it a go and report back,
