    I have read if the idea and LIKE IT! Only I wouldnt shorten the case. No reason for that extra step. Use a FL Maxi case or a european rimmed case as your parent case. BO is limited cause of the AR-15 magazine length. You have no such...

    I stand mostly. Just not comfortable sitting. I have a stool there. My wife will sometimes sit with me. But I never do. I also like my benches 8-10 higher than most. Narrow so you can reach the back and tall works better for me. CW
