Re: Bipod Vs Sling Vs Shooting Sticks

Depends on the type of shooting. Shooting sticks if under 200 yds mostly, Biopod if longer than 200 and have time prone shooting. Sling if stalkeing and have very little time to get shot off.

Re: Bipod Vs Sling Vs Shooting Sticks

i use all three. the sling is of course always on the rifle. The only time the bi-pod comes off the rifle is on high country hunts when I need to fit it into my scabbard. and the shooting sticks are always accessable on the side of my pack. Get good with your sling before you even buy a bi-pod so that your bi-pod is a tool not a crutch.

Re: Bipod Vs Sling Vs Shooting Sticks

I use a bi-pod but I would like to try a shooting stick, I want to buy a bi-pod that you can use when you sit down insted of the prone position might buy a shooting stick when I get that new bi-pod. What shooting stick do you fellas recommend?
