      Steve Gilley sent me a photo of a new F Class Bi-Pod and asked me to get the photo up on the chat forum and he would log in later and describe the thing. Stay tuned for the details. WWE

      might need to change the little adjusting rods on the right side [looking at it ) they may hang up on a mat or something (saw something similar in blakley GA some time ago and it happened to them on recoil. just some friendly input
      other than that it works pretty darn good

      Yes Larry I also saw that one at Blakley last year and liked it. I didn’t know that he had an issue with it but I can see that happening. I have not tried it yet but it seems to be really well machined with absolutely no slop in the joints. I have noticed that for large height adjustments it takes lots of turns on the little wheel! It is made by a small time machinist in Arizona that is called Firefox Engineering. Bryan bought one after seeing a blog on Accurate Shooter site and I thought I would give it a try also. There is no Web site for this rest but if anybody wants one I have the phone ##.

      The feet on this rest appear that they would grip the ground very well. The feet on my Seb Joy Pod are as slick as a snow ski. What would be the benefits of one over the other? WWE

      I’ve seen the joy pods (and other bipods) fitted spikes to push into the ground. I don’t know of any prohibition against that; do any of you folks know?
