    Bench Build

    My good mate and myself built a bench on his farm in 45mins with what was lying around pretty much.
    we have gongs at 150yds/200/300/350/400 yds that can all be shot from this bench, next time we are free we will be building a 100yd zeroing frame with a 6" gong underneath. The bench suites our style and height excellently and were stoked how well it turned out for a couple of rough buggers.
