    Film: Spotting and shooting sticks

    Just a short film I made that briefly touches spotting and use of shooting sticks.

    Thanks guys.
    That is the Blaser R93 with my 6,5x55 barrel and Atec Maxim Titanium moderator. It is bigger/ heavier than my CTM, but suppression is noticably better and is better suited for range work. I don't take this moderator hunting.

    Have you tried the two stick setup instead of the tripod?

    Thinking about making one, to much scrub around this place!

    Yes, it is ok for kneeling/sitting position. I think the model I used was called "safari stix" or similar, collapsible and extremely lightweight. Ok for shorter range, I find that the tripod helps with balance as it will hold you when you lean.

    Both work fine, just a little more versatility in the tripod. I also use the tripod when I need a "high bipod", that is prone with backpack under chest to get over the shrub.

    Another fine tutorial. Like how you had reloaded for the next shot before the gong sounded. Thought you would have been holding the hot can to keep your hands warm - or is that on the cutting room floor and we don't get to see it?
