Terry, if you want to shoot bench rest, I would agree with the guys that are saying to get a mechanical front rest. You're just not going to shoot as well with a bi pod. Go to any match and count how many bi pods are being used. The number will be zero.

Agree with Hynzie that the Bald Eagle rest is a very good starter rest. Can be had for less than $200 and with a very simple, less than $10 mod, it can be a great front rest. 

I'll also say +1 for the JJ rest. It's what I use and is excellent. Now would I like to have the NOTA Joy Stick rest? Absolutely. Just don't feel like laying out the money right now.
