Get off the bench

I have been thinking about all the times I have been to the range. I have only seen a few people that didn't use the bench and usually bags or a gun rest to shoot from. I think a lot of people would be very disapointed on how much their groups will open if they didn't have a bench to steady their rifles.

Probably what would be much more important than seeing how tight you can group your shots is to see how fast from a standing position you can place 5 to 10 rounds in a 10" circle at 100 yards.
I will have to admit that I am as guilty as anybody about spending the day at the range and using the bench instead of free style shooting.

I can't stand bench rest shooting! I usually don't go to ranges because you spend most of the time behind the red line waiting for people to replace their targets. I use the range at work or my shooting area on public land. When I shoot, it is always on the move or shooting drills with multiple targets. Rifle is prone, kneeling, or off hand. It is amazing how many people have never shot on the move because all their shooting has been done a t a shooting lane in a club.
