I am in favor of using some sort of shooting support. I have used a Harris bipod and a set of homemade shooting sticks. Both have their advanteges and disadvanteges. Was wondering what you guys use and why do you like it.

I use the Harris bipods. I like the convenience of having it mounted permanantly on the forearm if needed for a good rest from the prone position for a looooooong shot. Also handy if I go to the range and happen to forget my rests.

Jason uses a bipod but is looking to get one a bit longer. I myself usualy shoot from a sitting position and rest my elbows on my knees. Makes for a much steadier shot than no rest at all. No matter what you use, having a steady rest can mean the differance between some tasty venison or tag soup. :D

I have a couple of the Harris bi pods and love the shorter ones...
my taller set just doesnt seem to give the same support. ( then again I'm talking driving tacks ) for hunting they work fine.

I always rant about carryin/holdin my own rifle, but with my .223 and the LRH rifle I been working up lately I really need to try a Harris bipod. Not sure whether the Harris 9-13 or 13.5 -23" is the right length for me, but I guess I'll work that out. My hope is to find one that will work good on both rifles and then I can just swap it back and forth. My friend in Gysum has a 13.5 -27 on his Mod 70 Coyote and after shooting it last yr I kind of thought the longest one was unstable. I see Harris also has one that pivots a bit at the attachment point, but that
seems to defeat the bipod purpose.

Here's a link to some: http://www.midwayusa...ng?brandid=1167

Good luck.
