    supporting your hobby with stuff u make

    if you are a shooter or a reenactor u need to be able to store your guns and keep them clean. I drilled a couple of 3/8 inch holes for cleaning rods in the top horizontal of the Rifle racks I made. I made schemels to sit on in camp. I am going to make pellet stops for air gun shooting. no they wont be pretty, but they will allow me to shoot/and or store/clean rifles.
