There have bin some posts lately concerning using trecking poles with looped velcro and Y attatchments as a bipod shooting rest. You don't really need these extra gadgets to make an effective shooting tool out of a set of poles.

Place your poles about 6 inches apart in front of you. Place the strap from the left pole over the right pole's handle to below the grip, do the same with the opposit pole. Now, cross your poles so that the handles and straps form cradle to support your firearm, be it handgun or long gun.

The height of the bipod can be varied by how far apart you spred the tips of your poles and using the shortening and lengthing pole adjustments.

This technique is relatively quick and easy, provides a soft stable surface to rest your gun on, and, if you grasp the bipod at the X and lock your elbow, provedes a steady shooting platform that is lighter and faster than having to fool with the attachments. Rusty.

Thanks Rusty for sharing. Real interesting idea, now that I got a pair of them. And on top of that you gave me a good reason to go out and do a little target practice this weekend.
