Why I use Atlas bipods - #1

I haven't had a lot of personal experience with Atlas bipods so far but just enough to wonder how I got along without Atlas in the past.

Some tasks I will never trust to an ordinary bipod again.

    Len, surely a Harris will hold up your dirty socks?!


    On a serious note, the Atlas will spoil you in a quick hurry as it adapts to less than ideal terrain situations MUCH easier, thus ensuring I get the most stability possible for my shot.

    I completely understand the Harris for drying the socks. The Harris is a very versatile bipod. You might consider the leg extensions though, to get the whole sock off the ground. Nice pair of boots also. But, how, exactly, does the Hershey's Bar fit into this scenario? Are they a sponser? :-)

    Whether you are shooting LR or drying clothes buy Atlas at the LRH Store and never look back.
