Bench Dimensions Camp Perry

Post by SmokinNJokin on Sun Nov 15, 2015 3:39 pm

Folks,
One of the biggest surprises for me my first time at camp Perry was how low the benches were - anyone happen to know the dimensions on one of those 2-person benches? I want to build a replica in the back yard. Can't seem to find any actual measurements anywhere.
Thanks!

I was reading the rules a long time ago and thought it said each bench should be 4 foot wide and i got a laugh out of that because I have never shot a 2700 where they were 4 foot most seam to be 3 foot or less.

Height kind of depends on how deep the mud is. Smile

Make yourself a perfect bench, then make another one 4 inches too short, 4 inches too narrow, 2 inches too shallow, and 2 inches off-level.

My Platoon sergeant told me to practice with someone spraying me with a garden hose, as well. He thought it a fine joke... my neighbors think I am a nutjob dry firing in the backyard with the sprinkler spraying on me!
