Are you a little obsessed with accuracy? Let’s see if you can relate to any of the following statements.

Your rifle is equipped with an ultra-match-grade barrel that was precision-rifled by the best barrel-maker in the world using classified materials that were mined from a nearby asteroid. You backed it up with a National Match bolt that was made and fitted with the very tools that helped build one of the Mars Rovers. You further backed that up with an accurized trigger that was finely tuned by blind monks from the Himalayas. On top of all that, the rejected glass that wasn’t good enough for the scope you’re using is now being used on the Hubble Space Telescope.

If even a fraction of this were true, we’d say that you’re obsessed with — or at least, deeply care about — the accuracy of your shot. So what gives when the shots are pulling to the left and right and up and down?

Regardless of how accurate your rifle is, if you can’t hold it still, you’re not going to get the most out of it. Long guns can be heavy to hold stable when unsupported and quickly tire the shooter, causing an inability to steadily lock on to a target. Whether you’re sitting at a shooting bench, lying prone on the ground or somewhere out in the field, a bipod can help you steady your shot to get the precise hit you’re looking for.

One look and it seems as if bipod options are more plentiful than selfie sticks at Comic-Con. Some are lightweight and simple to use, while others feature complex designs and are chock-full of features – and there’s everything in between.

With so many bipods on the market, it can be a daunting experience to pick one that will work for you. In this buyer’s guide, we focused on short-height bipods from about 6 to 10 inches in height.

We took a look at a few standout bipods from the crowd and included enough detail for you to make an informed decision on your next purchase.
