Thread: Portable hitch shooting bench

    Portable hitch shooting bench

    I haven't even finished my trailer project and I stumbled across this idea, so I drew some plans up and added my own twist to it....

    Exploded view



    Folded up for travel




    Shooter ready



    Give me your ideas and I can improve my design!

    Looks awesome so far. Aside from the beer holder additions (top priority IMO), what do you think about installing a heavy duty ball-and-socket joint for the pivot point? If you could find one that's strong enough that locks down tight, it would be really beneficial... not only could it fold up vertically, and come down parallel with the ground, but could also swivel left and right. Without the swiveling action, you're basically forced to square up the back of your truck with the target.

    would be cool if you could rig it up to sit in the hitch of your truck or something like that if you take it out to a field..

    I read your last post, Wayne, and thought to myself, "What the heck?!?!? Did I miss something here? Man, they probably thought my idea made no sense at all!"
