Bipods, bipods and more bipods.

There is a lot of choice out there in bipods – and new manufactures seem to be coming onto the market every day with even more options.

However, like I seem to be constantly saying, it’s important to start with the end goal in mind, and work backwards, rather than get caught up in marketing hype and end up with something that is cool, but maybe not what you are actually after.

Hunting, target shooting, what?

So. The big question is, is this for hunting, is this for target shooting? Likely it’s for a bit of both – but what is the priority? Lightweight hunting bipods are available, as are heavier, but more stable target/tactical bipods. And while one will work for the other purpose, you often find that you sacrifice something when going to either end of the spectrum.

Of course, it’s hard to go wrong with a Harris Bipod. Though, as I suggest – there are a few modifications/add-ons that in my view are pretty much essential.
