    I needed 2 benches, one for me and one for my son, that I could fold to take in the truck so I made these. I started with a set of 28" Rugged Buddy legs and used their shooting bench idea with a bit of tweaking.

    They fold up really well and with the shorter 28" versions they take up a lot less room in the truck. I just use a stool rather than a chair to sit on (again, it's smaller and takes up less room). Each one cost me under $75 and they are first class.

    I also made a set of adjustable front rests too. I just slip on as many spacers as I want and am good to go. I had everything but the leather rest so I've got about $9 in each of them.

    They work well when we go out in the plains for some longer range shooting.

    I've had them for years and they are solid and work great.

    BTW: I also made the gun rack. It also folds flat to everything fits in the truck. I had the scrap wood, hardware, stain, and even the felt and glue. The only thing I bought was the brass chain so I've got like $2.80 in it.

    That's really nice.

    I just use one of those little 4x4' folding poker tables.

    I like your rifle rack too.

    Nice work, I need to build another shooting bench. My last was made with 2x6, and 3/4 OSB board, very sturdy, but not very portable. The weather got to it after several years, and I got tired of mowing around it. Your simple folding setup may just be the ticket.
