I am after some portable shooting benches I have seen them advertised before do people still make them if so does anyone know where I can get some from. I need to be able to shoot a Ruger Precision rifle of it using a bipod.
Due to the NRA screwing up access to the range we have been using 9 months of the year for the last four years I have had to change the type of ranges I book so as a Club we can carry on. Unfortunately, my member's average age is 66 so they struggle to shoot prone so I would like to acquire some portable suitable shooting benches for My Club Members to use.

Diggle has four ranges with covered firing-points all with concrete benches - at 100, 300, 600 and 1000 yards.

Is it possible for clubs to book ranges at Diggle for the sole use of the club members?

I think our club would be interested in booking a day as well, I tried the web site but it doesn't work.

Yeh - we're just swapping servers and updating the site at the same time so it will be down for a week or so. Again, PM me on targetshooteronline2icloud.com and tell me what you want.
