If anyone has a chance go to your local schools and see if they have any old desk or short tables with the adjustable legs and then you have a pretty good shooting table for out in the field or at your own raange.
Please keep in mind that, since my first cancer, I am partially disabled, and a very light bipod is much, MUCH easier to carry
in and out than a table or desk. When cancer has nuked your energy levels AND your lungs (1st metastasis) were reduced
to near zero capacity, and have, after six years, only healed up to around 60--65% of normal, AND has left me perpetually
anemic, AND destroyed my body's ability to process B-12 on its own (lack of B-12 == fatigue, depression, weakness, and
so on, so I have to give myself injections every other Saturday), every ounce you have to carry can end up feeling like a
ton..... Nice suggestion, but I'll stick with the "sticks" to lighten the weight (the ones I'm buying (Vanguard Scout B62
Aluminum Alloy Bipod) weigh in only 18 oz......
As for the range, I can't shoot where I live. But, a fellow brewer friend of mine lives out in the country (you know the
directions, turn off the paved road, then turn off the dirt road onto the trail, and turn right at the third tree). He's
already got his own shooting range setup, with a table for shooting. :-) (Btw, the directions to his place aren't
quite that bad...but another mutual fellow brewer friend's really are...those were basically the last part of the
directions to his place).
