Tips and Tricks: Tripod Work with the Gunwerks Competition Verdict

We got to spend some time out in the Wyoming countryside playing with our new Gunwerks Competition Verdict, working on tripod fundamentals for long range shooting.

We figured we’d take a second and make a quick Tips & Tricks entry on some of the secrets we employ to successfully connect at distance.

Tripods can be a hugely effective, may we say max effective, tool to increase stability in awkward positions commonly encountered in field conditions.  The tripod has become an integral component of the precision rifle kit, and is used by competitors, hunters, and MIL/LEO to increase their stability from an elevated position.  In the wise words of Shadow Tech - makers of the Hog Saddle, "a shot is rarely taken from prone."

With the exception of the Missouri Steel Tactical PRS Club-Series (MOST), who outlaws the tripod's use in competitions for unknown reasons, tripods have taken the nation by storm.  You'll see them everywhere.

Check out this video to see how we're using them today and let us know where you think their utilization will take us tomorrow!
