Re: rear support in a sitting position

Finally got to the store today. I picked up the stoney point tripod and tag along. I played with them in the living room. My initial impression is, this is one slick system!

It took me a minute to figure out the best place to rest the tag along on my pistol grip stock. Finally settled on two good places. The first is right between my knuckles. The other good spot is in front of the trigger guard. I am impressed with the versatility and ease of use. I could pivot and raise and lower elevation way better than I'd hoped. Stability is great too. Way better than the Harris with a monopod or backpack under the but.

To those who recomended these, thanks for the good advice! To Roy, better get ya some!

I'm going to use these in the field this weekend. Hopefully will have a pic of a coyote or two.

Re: rear support in a sitting position

I use two sitting positions:

1. Backpack. I backpack hunt, therefore I have a backpack with me 90% of the time. With the pack standing upright in front of me, I grasp the forearm with my left hand, lay it on the upright pack, and pull into my shoulder. Right elbow on right knee.

2. Sling supported. Having shot a bit of Highpower, I am comfortable using a sling. With a scoped magnum, you can't shoot as low, or cross-legged, but it is still pretty good (and better, if combined with the backpack).
