Bi-Pod for Gunsite Scout

I would like to get a Bi-Pod for my GSR but don't have a clue as to what to buy. I was looking at the Harris website and I see that some are fixed and some swivel. There are different height ranges and some other options. Mostly I'd be using it firing from a bench but also some prone position shooting. I've never used one before so I'm lost on this one.

I would have thought that I would have a few responses by now. Do I need a breath mint?

I know its 9 days later but I figured I would submit a response. I have a Harris on mine and it works exceptionally well mounted to the front sling stud. It is the fixed 9 inch that extends to about 17inches. I am not sure of the model number, however. I have found that the Harris are higher quality (better springs and hardware) than the cheaper ones form big box stores. Hope this helps!

Step 1: Buy and mount bipod.

Step 2: Go hunting/scouting with bipod mounted.

Step 3: Bipod gets hung up on brush, spooks game with noise, and generally is a hindrance to shooting.

Step 4: Remove bipod, get a Ching Sling.

Bipods are great tools, but for a very specific purpose. Stationary positions, with heavy, long rifles. Unless you're doing lots of plains shooting from one site, the bipod will just get in the way, and add weight.

Go to scoutrifle.org. Meet and learn from Gunsite alumni, students of the Colonel, and other scout shooters. Buy one of Andy's slings (or win one, during his periodic drawings). Or make your own pseudo-ching, like I did (until I got a decent one). Trust me, you'll be a lot better off, and a lot happier, than you would if you spent the money on a bipod.

Harris has long been the gold standard of bipods. There are many more expensive bipods like the Kengs and Versapod, not necessarily better than the Harris, but some mount to a Picatinny rail and some models have Q.D. release. Nice features, but they are 2 to 3 times the price of a Harris. The 6 to 9 inch Harris is probably the most popular, easier to shoot prone or from the bench with it compared to the taller models. Spend the extra bucks and get the notched leg /swivel version.

Ching sling from Andy's Leather and never look back. It is perfection on the scout.
