OK, so sitting or kneeling shots a bipod that you use for prone is probably not going to work. I have a shooting stick that folds into 3's and it fits nicely in the side compartment of my back pack. I use this bipod stick for glassing as well and it goes with me everywhere. If I have to make a shot outside of the prone position I go to the stick. I feel like I have my bases covered with set up except the fact I would like to have quick detach so the rifle fits a bit better in a scabbard etc.
Very good advice. Thank you. I do use a Stony Point now. Love it! Here is the thing. I have one that is like 6 years old. no problems with it splitting. Its so old and used the pads on the feet are about wore thru. Noticing this I bought 2 newer ones.... rubber split just like you mentioned. Still the old one is going strong. I need to come up with a solution to their problem, add a second stud and run both a prone bipod and have the quick attach for the Stony Point.
What are the lengths recommended for the prone bipods?
