Excerpt from the article "Wyoming Outdoor Product Days" - Back several months ago, I was invited by the Wyoming Business Council to attend a gathering of about six writers in Cody, Wyoming to have a look at some outdoor products that are manufactured in that state. My immediate response was “I’m in!” The event took place last week (August 25 through 28, 2008), and I am back home in Tennessee reflecting upon the wonderful time that I had visiting Wyoming.
…Royal Stukey was letting us use one of his excellent shooting benches while at the range. Even with a strong Wyoming wind blowing, his shooting bench was very stable. It is hard to tell the difference between a cheap bench and one of Royal’s benches just by looking at pictures in a catalog, but these benches are nothing like the cheap imported stuff that you might see advertised elsewhere. Royal uses a unique method to attach the legs to assure a solid connection, and it proved itself at the range. Unless you have a stable platform, you cannot realize the most accuracy from your rifle or handloads, and the bench is also portable enough for setting up as a varmint shooting bench. This thing is made from heavy plywood and pipe, not thin wall tubing. It weighs 65 pounds, and is built to last, and built in Wyoming.
