+1 same here. If your going to use it in the field train with it at the range.

Re: bipod or improvised rest?

I think so. I am 5'11" and I can use the sitting model comfortably kneeling. I measured it once for a guy on the nosler forum and my barrel is 40" off the ground kneeling with the bipod comfortably. I shoot alot that way to get over vegetation in my hunting area.
