One would think that after all the years I've been shooting/hunting & with all the rifles that I have had & still have . . . that I would have a gun vise! I always made do with laying them on the bench, across my lap or between my legs.
I finally decided to build one. It isn't like I'm an amateur woodworker because I've been doing cabinet work & building furniture all my life. Go figure. So anyway I've been looking at various plans on the net. Some very simple . . . some unecessarily complicated. It's not like we're building a piano here!
I finally settled upon a set of plans that will do the job at little cost. See attached.
