To begin with, instead of being a fixed table and bench it is actually collapsible which makes it easy to store if you want to get it out of the way, plus simple to transport if you want to take it on the road with you. By pulling a few pins, the whole thing folds open easily and locks into place in a matter of 10 seconds or less. The shooting bench is roomy at 34 inches long and 22.5 inches wide, providing plenty of space for you the shooter to set up and pop off some rounds without compromising your shooting form. The table itself is padded and covered in what my wife tells me is a “camel” colored 600-denier material around the outside and a black material along the chest rest and center portion of the bench. The raised edges around the perimeter of the table keep your spent brass contained as well as any other shooting accessories you may have sitting on the surface. The seat is adjustable and slides back and forth so the shooter can find the right position and distance that puts them up against the padded chest protector. This option is especially nice if you have young shooters. Because many benches are generally stationary, it can be difficult to set up shooters with the right form simply because the seat and table are too far away for them. Being able to snug the seat closer to the table is helpful for kids or smaller framed shooters. The included, removeable, shooting V 360° rest can be rotated to accommodate left- and right-handed shooters giving this bench even greater versatility. Plus, it has a built-in accessory pocket that holds ammo and other bench essentials and a cup holder to hold your beverages while you work. The folding frame is corrosion-resistant powder-coated steel and weighing in at a little more than 37 pounds, this bench is clearly heavier than a couple of sandbags. However, its size and solid build make for a sturdy platform which is necessary for honing your skills and dialing in your firearms. Once folded, the bench measures just 10-inches high and 60-inches wide and an integrated carry handle makes it easy to pull it out from the closet or carry it to the truck or shooting location.
With spring right around the corner, now is a good time to check out the Herter’s Deluxe Shooting Bench available at Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops.
