Don't get too cheap of a bi-pod as the cheap ones can be shatty when it comes to shooting with them.

Or you could use shooting sticks.

I know that one. I've seen one lose a nut or two when the rifle was shot.
So I'll probably get when in the middle of high end and cheap.

I never thought of that at all. I might buy some and see how they go, worse case is I've got something I can sell off at the next auction and make some money back on.

Damn dude, I was thinking that they'd be closer to $20.00. I don't know very many, if any who would be $80.00 for a couple of sticks, regardless of what their made of.

I was actually thinking of doing that. Least the making I the shooting sticks part. There's a lot of dowels that aren't used in shop class so might find some nice sized ones and then just give the ends a little more grip some how and then find a way to keep them together.

I always carried a hiking staff and used it if I needed a brace.
