Re: BIPODS? Anyone use them? Are they worth it? Harris...
I own two Harris bipods, one swivel, one not. For me, I dislike using them in almost all hunting applications.
For the heavy BR LR style of rifle, they bounce and wiggle too much to be accurate at long range. For walking about, they add weight and are a pain to adjust for height when Bambi has sighted you from across the clear cut.
I will use the swivel model when in my truck and need a quick rest to take a shot. For this situation, the bipod is great.
For the other two situations (mostly how I hunt), I prefer to use proper stand/rests or natural objects. I always hunt with a backpack so can easily use it for a rest. I also spend a lot of time shooting off my hind legs. Where I hunt, the vegetation gets in the way or there just isn't enough time so shooting offhand or kneeling is the only option.
Good luck with the Harris. For a product, it is certainly one of the best made bipods. For useage, you either like them or hate them...bipods that is.
