Improvised Shooting Bench
« on: May 25, 2013, 08:04:10 AM »
At our next shoot June 8-9 here in NH I have two individuals signed up with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and as such are both in power wheelchairs.  I would like to be able to provide some sort of shooting bench or rest if they need it.  Is a plastic folding table sufficient and safe enough for this purpose?  If not are there any recommendations for improvising a better solution?

There is some discussion and links in this thread.

I also briefly looked at the Adaptive Appleseed forum threads. A quick scan through them should help. The most common recommendations is contact the shooters in advance and ask them what they need/want.
