    I have been eyeing these for over a year.  Finally broke down.  The idea of swinging side to side blasting vermin is too enticing.  :)

    I’ll offer an official review once the summer is over.  

    It is called the Caldwell Stable Table.  Every time I saw it in a sporting goods store, it was $250.  But, Amazon currently has it for $179.99, so I couldn’t resist.  There is a deluxe version with a wood table ($450), but I opted to simply spray the [inexpensive] plastic table version with a bit of plasti-dip to give it some much-need “stick”.  Seems to be working they way I wanted, so far.  Good stickiness (so, the bipod won’t slip) and it adhered to the table well.  I even went so far as to buy the carrying case, with it.  I plan to keep it in the back of my truck most of the time.  It sets up in about 5 min, and weighs around 60lbs.

    “Rocky_in_TX”I got one point I would like to bring up on these.  I have one that is basically the same set up tripod legs, attached seat, rotates.  I agree, I think it would be great for shooting vermin or fun targets, where you could rotate and shoot.  Now, the serious question, I have tried to use this for some pellet on pellet style of target shooting and I swear, I can see my heart beat in the scope and it’s coming from my butt cheeks sitting on the attached seat!

    Am I the only one who seems to carry my arterial pump, in my rump?

    
No, I notice the same using the Caldwell Stable Table.  When using my wood bench it doesn’t exist.

    How can any serious question contain the words “butt cheeks”?  LOL 

    I actually thought this may be an issue (especially if it was hot out), so I ordered a “buffer” in the same shipment.

    Enjoy the cushin!  Hope it keeps your pump out of your rump from showing up in your scope!  (sorry the last part just does not rhyme)  but you get the idea.

    This rhymes: Enjoy the cushin!  Hope it keeps your pump out of your rump and the dope in your scope!
    Thank you, please contain the applause…

    Nice set up.  But I have never seen a Camouflaged Whoopee Cushion before now.  Kind of Sheik and Trendy…
    Oh no now all of us will be running out to buy these cushions in Camouflage…. Cool

    Looks like good fun Ted, have you seen the idleback chairs? They look great, I’ve seen people use them in thick vegetation and be sat for hours blasting away at vermin.

    Nice Ted! I can’t wait to see your review and watch you use this setup for hunting critters.

    I bought a Bog Pod tripod with the shooting rest option for backyard shooting with my family. I may try it for hunting some time. Bob

    blackdieselHere is another seat It’s less than $100

    http://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/big-game-shooting-bench?a=334743

    Their product photo cracks me up!

    The people who set up the photo didn’t understand that you never place a centerfire rifle barrel directly on a rest as shown. That would play havoc with the rifle’s accuracy. :)

    Hey Ted 
                 Mine has served me well. But I think as some others– the table is fine for dispatching Critters but has an inherent Flaw in that the seat is directly connected to the table. Also that the top is made of plastic — diminishing stability even more.
    i have seen a site that sells the table with what appears to be a butcher block wooden top?
    anyway I still use mine on occasion — but that’s why I went with the cement table. I really want stability for  benchrest practice
    enjoy

    Also — I’m not sure what the elements are like in Wisconsin but here in Florida everything rusts!
    i keep sanding and spray painting the rest with Rustouleum– 
    just to keep it from falling apart

    There are paints that will turn rust into a zinc protective coating.  There are phosphorous based paints that work in a similar way.  The thing to do is strip the paint and do it all at once rather than just when the rust pops up somewhere else.

    Here is a bench I made last week, similar to one already posted.  All legs are adjustable in height as well as the stool.  Bench legs are removable as well.
