Mr. Davis is a former Naval aviator, an engineer, a machinist, and the owner of Freeport Manufacturing Company. He’s also a competitive rifle shooter of many years standing. Fifteen years ago, a friend came to him with a busted prone scope stand and asked if Harry could make a new one. Harry Davis looked at the stand and saw that it had far too many parts, and those were fragile, so he designed a stand that has very few parts, and is, to put it mildly, robust. In fact, it’s built like a brick shithouse. In fact, there are very few brick shithouses that are put together so solidly as Harry Davis’ scope stand. Best of all, it costs $150.
