Default Need a shooting bench

I was asked to help with a youth hunt. A friend runs a ranch in South Texas that takes gold star kids (children of fallen soldiers) hunting. There are a few kids that have been offered this opportunity that are from the DFW area.

Short background why I was chosen to help.
7 years Army
Graduated U.S. Army Sniper School September 2010 Ft Benning, GA
2 Deployments to Iraq total of 23 months

Most of these kids have never shot a rifle and my part in helping is to familiarize them with a rifle and proper fundamentals prior to the hunt.

I would like to make it as easy as possible on these kids and have a decent shooting bench for them.

If you are close to Joshua and have one for sale let me know.

Thanks in advance.

I've seen some really good ones for sale here lately.

Lyssy and Eckels has one in Llano that is a pretty solid setup - all welded metal and nice and heavy.

I'll be glad to kick in to help buy one for these kids....

Llano is a little far from me. Thanks a ton for the offer though.

I have a portable bench that I made, it is set up on a black and Decker work mate table, I also have a Caldwell sure shot, I have a special needs son that uses them, you are more than welcome to borrow them if you like, I am in Southlake but I can have them in north Fort Worth right off of I 35 where my shop is.

Very generous offer sir and much appreciated. I talked to a good friend of mine Mr Woody Kerr and he building one that will shoot left or right handed and only charging me materials! Stand up guy, and does great work!

Gotta bump this up as a thanks to Mr. Woody Kerr. He came through on the shooting bench and it turned out perfect!

Been a NRA RO for a long time and have instructed/introduced children into shooting firearms. One thing that is important is being able to adapt to the different physical sizes of kids to adults. One size doesn't fit all, it's nice to have adjustability specially in the height of the seat. I built this one and it will accept short skinny to tall and fat people in seconds.
