A Varmint Bench With A Twist

If you do much shooting in the Prairie Dog Towns out west, you need some type of shooting bench. I wanted a bench that had the following atributes:

Easy to carry
Cheap to build
Would allow use of a professional “benchrest” front rest.
Sturdy

The first requirement is all relative. As long as I can throw it on top of the Jeep or in the back of the Pick-Up, I’m a happy camper. I would set a cost of less than $200 for the second. The third specification took a bit of head scratching. And the last meant Three legs of a very sturdy nature with the seat not attached to the bench. Every bench I’ve tried with the seat attached had way to much movement for accurate distance shooting.

Here’s what I came up with:

Motorcycle Mobile Office

My job allows me to work on the road as long as I have access to the internet and E-Mails. For years I’ve been carrying around my IBM LapTop in a Pelican case in one of my painers. But every time I wanted to access the computer, it was a chore to get it out, hook it up to the battery or find a 117V outlet.

I mostly camp when motorcycle touring so having the ability to recharge the laptops batteries while on the road was also something needed.

I started with a Pelican case. I attached it to the motorcycle with a very heavy duty Touratech mount that locks the Pelican case to the motorcycle, but allows very easy removal.
