Shooting sticks (weapon mount)
Shooting sticks are portable weapon mounts used by field shooters, like hunters, snipers and metallic silhouette black-powder rifle shooters, similar to a monopod, bipod or tripod, with one, two or three legs. They are commonly used on rifles to provide a forward rest and reduce motion. Shooting sticks permit the operator to rest the weapon on the ground, a low wall, or other object, reducing operator fatigue and permitting increased accuracy. Shooting sticks can be of fixed or adjustable length and can be homemade products by their operators or factory products.
