I Was looking to purchase a shooting tripod but could not decide on which model, looking on the forum i noticed that a lot of stalkers use B&Q poles, as i am living in france at the moment i went to my local garden centre and found 2mtr alumimium plastic coverd poles at 2.4 euros each, i soon made up a tripod and went off to my local range to try it.
my results were poor to say the least i got a 4inch group at 50 yards and a 7inch at 100 so back to the drawing board. I found a mention of quad sticks on the forum so i added two more sticks. i placed the rifle so it sat between the fore and aft supports and fixed the distance between them using twine. today i went back to the range with my new contraption and put six rounds of 58gr vmax in a half inch group at 100 yards which is far better than i can do on the bench, at the moment i find it a bit of a fiddle to set up but i am going to take it out rabbiting when i am back in the uk to see if i can get quick at it.
