To shoot straight, you’ve got to apply the fundamentals of marksmanship: Position; breathing; sight alignment and picture; and trigger control. Within that first fundamental are all the elements that can help a shooter stabilize themselves and their firearm; from bone support and body alignment, to external rests including bipods, bags and benches. Establishing a firm foundation can go a long way towards eliminating shot-to-shot variances. The less you and your firearm move, the better chance you have at stacking shots into satisfying groups.
As many shooters know, a heavy shooting rest placed on a steady shooting bench can make for an ideal shooting platform. But, as with so many things, “ideal” is not always possible. Whether at the range having only rickety or non-existant tables, or on the move afield and needing portable support, there are numerous uses for a shooting bench that can travel with you. Caldwell has just the solution in one of its Stable Tables.
Guns & Ammo’s staff evaluated the Stable Table Lite while on set to film Guns & Ammo TV’s “At The Range” segments. It weighs less than 30 pounds thanks to its aluminum legs and a molded polymer tabletop and seat. Cleverly, the entire assembly is capable of folding flat for easy storage and transport, and the materials resist inclimate weather.
The semi-winged table design accomodates both right- and left-handed shooters, and the adjustable, rotating seat allows discriminating users to fine-tune their alignment.
Yes, a half-ton concrete bench offers great stability, but the Stable Table Lite provides more-than-adequate support at the range or, well, anywhere!
