After losing one hand-held bipod and beating another into unusability over the past few years I decided to spend a few bucks and get a couple of good replacements for myself and my son for the upcoming rifle hunting season. To that end I settled on the [URL="http://www.primos.com/products/trigger-sticks/bi-pod/"]"Gen2" version of Primos' bipod[/URL], having been pretty happy with the performance and durability of the Gen1 version (which is the one that I somehow managed to lose).

Despite the ridiculous MSRP shown on the Primos product web page I was able to find it [URL="https://www.natchezss.com/primos-trigger-stick-bipod-gen2.html"]at Natchez Shooters Supplies on sale for $74.99[/URL], which was cheaper than anyplace else even with the high-as-a-kite $18 shipping cost (which made no sense considering how light and compact the bipods are in the collapsed position). When the box arrived 2 days ago I figured out why the shipping cost was so much. Whoever packaged them for shipping seems to have been unaware of the fact that the legs can be telescoped to the fully shortened position even in their packaging (which only covers the top part of the handle, and still allows for manipulation of the trigger to unlock the legs), so they shipped them in a configuration that was 37" longer than necessary, which required them to use an unnecessarily long box....which no doubt added significantly to the volume-based cost of shipping.


Nice sticks though. I especially like the ability to quickly drop the legs and lock them into position all with one hand for use as a quickly deployed monopod for those cases where you unexpectedly happen across game while walking.
