It doesn't yet Mike. I'm planning that for when you come up.
Maverick, you'd think people would be smarter than that. The building it was in was pretty far away from my brother's house, so getting in and out would be possible without being detected. Now it's at a building at my house where it's much closer. There will soon be an alarm with a bullhorn outside pointed right at my bedroom window.

No kidding. Smart decision on the move and the alarm.

Gun Bench

The configuration pretty much stays the same but it is not always this neat.

How do you like that Lee Load All Doc?
I've considered getting into shotgun stuff, but I'm not sure I'd like it. The Load All seems like an inexpensive way to see whether it's for me.

Up dated my bench a tad.

I added a LCT. Bought the upgraded kit from Kemph with extra turrets, powder measures and risers and a few other odds and ends.




I will build a storage system for the dressed out turrets soon as my back stops hurting. I am setup for 9mm, .38/.357 and .45acp. As of today I have loaded 9mm,124/147 grain, .38, 148grain LWC, 125/158gn +P, .357 full house 125/140/158gn mag's. And some .45acp 230gn ammo. All bullets are XPT-HP. Powders used to this point are 2400, Herco, TiteGrounp and Clay's. All metered great. Also have a double disk kit and charge bar. They also worked out well.

I have enjoyed this upgrade!

Wife and I built it last Sunday and didn't even "get into it". We wrestled the top to the basement then attached the predrilled legs, etc. Need to cut some shelves for the bottom and it's ready. She has coated it with 4 layers of poly- and it's slick as glass. It's 8 ft long and 30 inches wide. Legs are 4x4's and surface is 39.5 inches. The lip is a 2x6 notched into a 2x6. More pics when it's a "working bench".

This is my workbench. One end for reloading, the other for cleaning, maintaining and building guns. That's my new AR15 that I just put together. (On the living room coffee table. ) Planning on mounting other presses beside my RCBS as I purchase them. Hopefully line up two or three. I spaced the legs on the back so that I can put shelving over my reloading area and clip my lights on the shelves over the presses, just haven't got that far yet-I just got it put back together last night.

Thanks. My best friend and I spend a lot of quality time in the gun room.



When the kids grew up and left home, the wife got the oldest daughter's room and turned it into the "princess room" for the granddaughter. Lots of pastel colors, dolls, baby bed, rocker, etc. I will spare you pictures of that. But when the son left, I snagged his room, put a deadbolt lock on the door, and made it my own.

When in doubt about anything manly, though, you should always consult a copy of "The Big Damned Book of Sheer Manliness".

The VonHoffman brothers are my heros.

Looks like you have the basics. Most of us didn't start with much more than you are showing. Good ammo can come from compact set ups.

Gonzo, I started reloading shotgun shells with a press mounted to a square sheet of plywood, clamped to a bench at the range.

Granted I haven't moved upwards very much, but I go in fits and spurts.

Gonzo,

Looks like you have a good start to build upon. When you need more equipment, you might want to take a look in the Trading Post area.

My Bench!

I used this thread for ideas for my own bench. Started a year ago and now have what I feel is a fairly respectable setup. Thanks to everyone who posted and acted as my reloading muse.

Setup is a Hornady single stage for rifle and a Lee Classic Turret for pistol.

The first photo is an early one and the second one I took today.
