I've been messing around with a variety of holds. What I am finding is interesting. To begin with, there are just a whole lot more ways one can hold a pistol like a Contender compared to a rifle or a normal pistol sans forend.
The second matter is that eye relief with scopes becomes a major issue. To me, I am thinking that irons or a red-dot is the way to go. Use Binocs for glassing.
Finally, I read up on the Snipe pod. Seems very interesting because it is so lightweight, supportive, and adjustable. Pricey, though.
I was wondering what people though of the telescoping mono-pods vs. bipods with a contender. I've never used either.
Thanks for all the great guidance.
