    DIY shooting sticks

    Ive made loads of these folding sticks for myself and others and found them to be very effective in single and double styles, there made from garden stakes and bicycle wheel inner tubing..

    Seen the stakes online here Gardman Garden Stake Green, 07908

    I find the double ones work really well and give you a good steady shot, there made simply by putting the inner tubing around two sticks about 10" from the top and to make the double ones simply make two sets and join them at the bottoms with more inner tubing.

    If using double crossed sticks or as some call them quad sticks. Trim down the end of the rear stick that points towards the shooter flush with the top of the stock. Doing so allows you to shoot without having the end of the stick, sticking out across your face and eye. No pun intended.

    I'm gonna give this quad-stick thingy a go this weeekend, just for the fun of it..I'm usually happy with just cross-sticks, but let's see..do you place the butt (of the rifle..) in the back sticks, or put it behind the trigger area?

    I put the back sticks just in front of the trigger guard as the sticks can poke you in the face if the butt is resting on them.

    I am right handed and have the left rear stick trimmed by ~2 inches, however it supports the stock to the rear of the swivel. As per attached photo (not me). For good control over elevation, the front and rear supports need to be as far apart from each other as possible. Ideally with a stutzen the four sticks would support the butt and the muzzle.

    As per JCS.

    Reflecting my brief stint at sea, the tops of the left hand sticks are finished off with red electrical tape. Rgds JCS
