I'm redoing my work area in my basement and have added new workbenches. I have considered building from the start but found the following and said the hell with it.
I can't say how tickled I am to have found this workbench at Home Depot. It's sturdy as a rock, requires no assembly and very well put together. The photo on HD's site does not justify this bugger.
For $70, why build one? The material you need may run cheaper, but you have to acquire it, cut it and build it. So this thing for the cost is worth it because it's a no brainer. I love working with wood, but my basement is hard to work in with lengths of wood. One swing the wrong way, I can take out a boiler or water heater. And for the folks that would like a new bench but are not skilled in building, this one is for you!
It makes a great reloading bench or anything else. It's stainable or paintable.. I fasten mine to the wall to make it strurdier because I have no need to move it. But it's legs fold into itself and the shelf on the bottom slips in and makes it whole and sturdy. Want to move or stow it? Just remove shelf and fold it in. Here is a link to it. HD's photo sux.. In fact, the top they show is not the one you get. You get one even better. It's a type of saw dust particle board. Very strong... (Check out the review someone gave with his phtos for more shots and he added casters... Here is a shot of mine assembled and in place.

i do buy from amazon, but i don't see any way i'll get anything from them in time for this match. i've got my belt pretty decently set up i think. got 3 pistol mags and 3 rifle mags on it. i only had a triple rifle mag pouch, so i gotta go with that.
for the shotgun, i've got an 870 pump that has a 6 shell caddy bolted on the side of it. i can't transfer that to my ati though. i think my mossie(that one's kept at the shop) has an elastic 5 or 6 shell caddy that goes on the buttstock. gonna check that tomorrow. i'd rather use the semi auto, but for my first time out, if i can carry them on the 870, then i'll use that.
also, reading the rules again. shotgun ammo. on quinton's link in the OP, it says #6, 7.5, or 8, plus the slugs. in the rules, it says no bigger than #6 birdshot. i'm going to either dicks sporting goods or bobs little sport shop to grab the shotgun ammo i need, so i wanna be sure on which i can/should be getting.
for pistol and rifle, i can safely presume plain old ball ammo?
thanks for all the help guys
