    I was lookin at Russ M `s pic of that bull pup thingy...
    the pod looks like it mounts on the top of that thing.
    i would asume this lowers the center of gravity of the rifle.
    seems like all our hunting rifles have them mounted on the bottom usually on the sling mount.
    any pro`s or cons to this ? would it actually be better ? any one play with the idea or have one for LR?

    I have a Harris bi-pod that I've been using for the last 12 years and there are certainly times when I thought that it wasn't stable enough. I understand the wisdom of a lower center of gravity cause it certainly helps with with stability as does a larger foot print.

    Sinclair International has new F-Class Bipod that looks really good for Prone target shooting. I wish I could get one, I really like shooting prone, but they are $200. They also don't fold, so they are useless for mountain hunting.

    I guess I'll stick with my Harris for now.
