DryFire Shooting Stand
"Some of the best instructions ever! Very nice design of stand as well."
"A little pricey but a very neat and tidy solution to setting up DryFire and it certainly hides all the wires! It goes back against the wall when I'm not using it and I put a table lamp and magazines on it."
"It was easy - why doesn't IKEA write instructions like yours?"
We originally designed the DryFire Shooting Stand to make life easy for us when giving demonstrations or when attending exhibitions and shooting shows.
Apart from trailing wires looking messy they also present the risk of tripping and damaging yourself or expensive equipment.
We have taken our tried and tested design and had it manufactured from solid Baltic plywood (no chipboard or veneer here!) by a local company using state-of-the-art CNC routing machines. We are now offering it for sale.
The key design features are:
- Provides a location for the DryFire simulator at the same height every time you use the system.
- Provides a location for a laptop so you can select layouts and targets and see the result of each shot in front of you even if you are not using the projection version of DryFire.
Keeping the laptop display lower than the simulator means you have total freedom of gun movement over the system while standing behind it to shoot.
- Provides plenty of space for a mains distribution block to power the simulator, the laptop and a PC projector if you are using one.
- Strategically placed holes so cables can be run from anything to anything without looking ugly.
- Straightforward to assemble. Please click here for instructions.
- Small and light enough to be quickly stored away between shooting sessions.
- Space to store other stuff. We use it to store leaflets and things at exhibitions.
A projector like the Optoma GT1080e or GT1080Darbee (both 315mm x 224mm x 114mm) can be stored on the lower right shelf when not in use.
Short-throw projectors require different distances to provide the maximum display size so they are best placed on the floor in front of the stand when using DryFire - this makes them invisible while shooting.
- Dimensions: 690mm x 600mm x 310mm (27.2" x 23.6" x 12.2").
- Weight: 10.6 kg (23.4 lbs).
- Manufacturing material: solid 12mm Baltic plywood panels (10 off).
- Manufacturing process: CNC routed, sanded, lacquer sprayed.
- Assembly method: screw-on fixings (29 off) for push-fit panels - using pre-drilled holes.
We like well designed things so we have selected Button-fix Type 2 push-fit fixings for the 10 plywood panels that make up the Shooting Stand. These fixings were originally developed for holding wooden panels to walls but, even though they add a fair bit to the manufacturing price (we use 29 of them!), they are ideal for our purpose and make assembly very straightforward. You can find details of the fixings on the Button-fix web site.
- Assembly time: less than 1 hour.
- Assembly instruction: see here.
- Delivered as a flat-pack package: 700mm x 420mm x 100mm weighing just under 12 kg.
