    Always bring new guns home in the dark and get them into the safe without the wife seeing them .......... then when asked you be saying "what, that old thing........ it's been in the safe for ages .........."
    Tip - never leave the safe door open when your wife is around, otherwise she will take inventory, and then you are screwed!

    Yes well , she still doesn't know about the 590a1 buried in the deep dark corner of the safe and never used when she's around . Unfortunately she now has her license and her own rifle in the same safe but I have hidden the keys and whenever she wants it I retrieve it for her " let me get it for you my dear , and have I told you lately how much I love you" .... Hehehe
    Had to front up with this one though as will be a carry rifle.

    Good advise, but what do you recommend when your wife has a licence and knows where the keys are?

    Arrive home, say "hi honey, look what I bought for you............. (us)"
    or, there is always the "look what I got on special ...... you won't believe how much I saved!"

    Pretty impressed with the Backlanz carbon bipod QD system �� Well thought out and very light.

    In longrange riflery, trajectory is the pure science part. Gravity is a constant for our purposes.

    I have been seriously thinking about them for a while now.
    Apart from the obvious weight saving are they as sturdy as a harris and do the legs have a good adjustment range and quiet to operate?

    I have one of those stocks. Good value. Mine has every spare accessible void filled with No9 lead shot

    @veitnamcam you can’t flick both legs out at once like you can with a Harris, each leg has to be unlocked with a push button and rotated. The leg extension adjustment is easy though, easier that the fiddly wee thumbscrew on the Harris. No spring assistance on this part of the arrangement means all these setup movements are quiet. The combo leg option gives you a third stage alloy extension with detent locks. There’s a small spring that gives the alloy legs a shove when you press the release, and this action can generate a bit of noise.

    I think the carbon work is well done, we’ll see how the 3D printed Titanium parts hold up in time. I shot the 7RM as pictured last weekend off the bipod and had no problems at all.
