  RASS. Rapid Acquisition Shooting System. I don't have a photo to show but you can check it out on the RCBS website. This shooting system is fully adjustable to fit any size . It' fits in the bed of my truck and that way you don't have to break it down and set it up when you move. Best suited for use a large private land where you can continually move to new spots.Once you try it you will want to buy one!!

Here are the tables I made for my sons and I to shoot prairie dogs with.

 

I made the tables out of 3/4" vinyl covered particle board.  Once the shape was cut I cut 1"x1" angle iron to go around the perimeter to make it stiffer and to provide a lip to keep rounds from rolling off.  The corners of the angle iron was welded and ground smooth. Then screws were used to attach it to the particle board.  The legs are standard buffet table legs.  

Dimensions of table.

I put scraps from the cutout under the front legs to raise the front and allow the front legs to fold over rear.

I sure like the looks of those shooting benches/tables. The look to be rock solid.

They are pretty heavy which makes them very stable as long as the ground is not soft.

I am banking on heavy and stable, I use an adjustable height lightweight table right now, but I have to counter weight it or it's too unstable.
