Portable Caldwell Shooting Benches for Stability

Shooting platforms like Caldwell's Stable Table, Stable Table Lite, and the BR Pivoting Shooting Bench help shooters stabilize themselves when on the range or in the field.

Caldwell offers three shooting benches: Stable Table ($260); Stable Table Lite (pictured, $150); and the BR Pivoting Shooting Bench ($535). Of those, the Stable Table Lite is the most portable and well suited for shooters on the go. For more information, visit caldwellshooting.com.

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!
