I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but......

We've set up a shooting range at the family farm out to 300 yards. We're wanting to build a shooting bench/table. It will need to be somewhat portable. Gotta mow and such ya' know.
Has anyone here built one, or know where I can find some plan suggestions for building a 1 or 2 person shooting bench?

I don't really have any plans for a semi-permanent one, but I have seen one at a police range that was made out of 1.5" galvanized pipe.  The pipe was the framework and the top was made of plywood.  It's heavy enough for fairly stable shoting and can be weighed down for additional stability but it's still light enough to be manhandled for mowing, etc.  I'm not sure if this is what you had in mind or not.  Hope this helps.  You might also want to do a generic web search for shooting benches.

I built one but haven't really tested it out yet.

We have our own little area set up and use a Folding Table that can be purchased from Sam's or Costco for thirty some bucks...   It's very stable, easy to store and a breeze to keep clean...  A bit cluttered in the pic..

Edited, cause I'm gettin' dislexycicyk in my old age...

Thanks for the excellent responses. Never thought about the folding tables, and I like the one man home built one. I may do both.  I will also do a search and see what else may be available.

Thanks again.
