We spend so much time talking about guns and gear and espresso recipes, that sometimes we forget the simpler aspects of shooting. Shooting benches are something most shooters don’t take enough time to consider, but they should. Our recent time with DOA Shooting Benches at the 2018 Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous cemented them as our No. 1.

We had approximately 30 benches from DOA out on the range in Montana and not one failed us. Not to mention, they were incredibly easy to set up; there’s something to be said for that when you have 30 manufacturers on the range over the course of three days. This isn’t an ad. We’re just telling you the facts about why we like them so much.

Our resident long-range specialist and Ballistic Precision Editor-at-Large Sean Utley had this to say of DOA Shooting Benches: “With products like DOA Shooting Benches I typically look for what’s wrong with it as opposed to what’s right. I can honestly say that I haven’t found anything wrong with it yet, other than I don’t own one … yet.”
