    I would think that the lead sled would enhance safety when shooting from a bench.

      They are used frequently at Brookhaven. It is no different than using a front and rear rest other than it being one piece.

        They only request (at Crookhaven) when using the sled if standing behind the rifle to have 1 knee on the bench seat

          Even that doesn't matter, as long as you're seated. No standing, kneeling or prone. But you can shoot from the shoulder if you;re seated. You don't have to use the bench.
          I'm probably going to regret asking this, but what is their reason for wanting you seated to shoot?

            I don't know. I suppose you're just less likely to sweep? They don't give reasons.

              Not certain but I think it has to do with the low awning. Standing might make it more likely that a putt will shoot the awning. I have a vague recollection of them telling me that but wouldn’t bet on it.

                Either of these could be correct. Neither doesn't make sense. Thanks.

                    It's a "no blue sky" range. You can't see the top of the berms, so theoretically, a bullet can't escape the range. Look at the support posts and the overhead. They're all shot to hell. WTF are people aiming at?!!

                    They really get pissed when they hear a clang from someone hitting a target holder.

                      It never ceases to amaze me how many people shoot the ceiling. I wonder if they can't aim AT ALL, if it was a negligent discharge, if it was recoil they couldn't control followed by an early second squeeze, etc. I've done some stupid things at ranges in my life, but I have never shot the ceiling.
