So, what say ye??
If you are considering a bi pod there are things you need to remember when using one.
They can effect the zero so the rifle must be sighted in using the bi pod and the same
procedure should be used for hunting as for practice. (Pushing forward on the bi pod
is the most common while shooting).
They are very handy in tall grass and can make a difference, But again, practice with the
bi pod in the sitting position or if shooting in short or no grass the prone position is best.
If conditions vary from hunt to hunt two bi pods of different lengths may be required and
can be changed out based on the conditions when arriving at the shooting sight.
Or install the one needed for sitting (Taller) and use the improvised rest for the prone shooting.
