You know, i had an article once in Varmint Hunter mag. Just about every pic. in it had a Harris bipod on it. Believe it or not, for 3 yrs. running Harris Engineering sent me a freebie. Not long ago i killed a 906 yd. coyote with an XP-100 pistol. I wrote it up and sent a letter to Harris Eng. telling them about the shot, and that i was putting their product to good use-- guess what-- got another freebie in the mail. 4 free bipods from those guys. Of course my opinion isn't biased, but... I always use the bipod for coyote hunting, but, then again when we backpack for big game hunting i don't use one (less weight, of course).
