An Inexpensive 3-Position Offhand Stand - page 3 / 3





3 / 3

Next you make the top and ammo holders. I use a 4x6 piece of ¾ plywood for these as I want some stability.

I cut the top and mount it to the painter pole adapters. I also like to get some old (or cheap) mousepads and glue fit pieces to the top so the guns do not slip. If you do not have any old mousepads, office supply stores often have their brand name one for about $3. You can get two stand tops covered with one of these.

I then cut out the ammo holders to grip the top portion of the extendable pole. I use a 3/16 bolt and wing-nut to clamp the holder in place. I’ve also stapled Velcro to the top of the pictured holder and then can place the other side of the tape to a pellet tin or pellet holder to keep it from falling off during slight bumps.

As you can see the stand also doubles to keep the rifle off the ground, as well as being a convenient storage bucket to haul equipment to and from the line. My shooter can put their pellets, gloves, sweatshirt and other items in the bucket and keep them from being lost (hopefully). If you have to travel to matches, the parts easily come apart, the buckets can be stacked, and many of these can be transported together.
