I like the idea!
My personal favorite is the plano customizable case (it's known as a Plano 4 Pistol Case) http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B000P3WPKK
This is a VERY overpriced on, but can be picked up at walmart for roughly $10.
For the chronograph, yes. For the box, just go to costco/ikea (if you have one near by) and ask if they have spare cardboard boxes . They usually have stacks of them that they really want to get rid of.
Would really love to see one, I may actually try to make one myself. I decided to go with this specific box since it was easily accessible and was extremely easy to work with!
Sadly yes . However, what I was thinking about doing was making a small attachment that will both elevate and hold it onto my gun stand. Then I'll simply align the barrel with the chronograph, and that should make things a tad easier (no need to hold the marker, simply have one hand on the trigger and one on the chronographs button).
To be honest, the main point of this station was to solve the reading issues I was having with the chronograph. Now, rather than reading 4 out of every 10 shots, I'm getting about 8-10 out of 10 proper readings.
