    Hi

    i bought a tripod online, had 5 star reviews but to me personally it’s a piece of junk. Held in by Velcro on the rifle rest so the rifle matter what moves left/right up/down, so when sighting in its impossible to hold the sight on the target and twist the windage etc without some movement.

    is there any quality made piece that literally can clamp the rifle in place and be confident there won’t be movement when making adjustments?

    this particular one is for standing while shooting

    Something like this ?  http://stores.hogsaddle.com/slik-dx700pro-tripod-black/

    I'm sure there are others, just searched on standing tripod and looked for an image of one that held the rifle…

    For the right price you can find anything.  I think this unit is $550

    From me… no. Just thought that maybe an example of what you have in mind might (maybe certainly) be helpful.

    If nothing else, an adapter does exist that will take you from a picatinny rail to a tripod standard bolt. It wasn't easy to find and I have NO memory of where I got it. But with that adapter and a really good tripod (and a rail on your rifle that you trust to hold the weight) your be set (as long as you have a REALLY good tripod).

    Really right stuff has a S.O.A.R plate that mounts to a ball head and a picatinny. I think it's $80. I already had a tripod, ball head and makeshift hog saddle so the RRS plate was worth it. RRS is great stuff but expensive. If you have a camera tripod, this is the way to go!

    I also am in the market for a good standing Tripod, 

    100 dollars are a little over seems OK for my budget.

    If you've got the mount and are just looking for a tri-pod, I picked up a good Bogen (probably 40 years old) off eBay for a pittance. The older Bogen's (now made by Manfrotto out of Italy) were built like tanks, and could really take a pounding.  I demonstrated one of my ancient, used tripods to my wife by supporting me on the tripod.  They can be had for under $100, I paid around $40 for mine, just depends on the market at the time you look.

    Lots of good choices out there

    I made a mount this summer for my heavy duty tripod with a picatinny rail riser I had in my shop, it works ok but I need a bit longer bolt for the rail mount so it’s a bit stronger where it mounts to the tripod adapter.

    Hi anyone use this: https://www.bipodshootingstick.com/shop/bipodshootingstick/ or this: http://hammersbinoculars.stores.yahoo.net/hasateshtrwi.html

    Personally, I'm looking for a light quality tripod or two-pod shooting with Taipan Veteran Standard .25 because I will use it as I walk through the woods.

    Primos are probably good but very expensive and Caldwell Fieldpod Magnum but expensive are quite large.

    I'm still not sure if it's a tripod or a twopod because I have no experience but it should be light and mobile but at the same time qualitative! Any ideas for <$100?

    Thanks for the information, but I do not know if I can choose the right mounting adapter for the rifle …

    I personally can not make such an adapter, so I'm looking for something done in the factory.

    I may also be wrong but it seems to me that it is big enough to go with it plus the rifle and the other accessories, considering that I am a relatively small person …

    If I was shooting down on the ground or on a table there are many variations, but when shooting straight the device should be light and mobile but also have to fix the rifle well especially when shooting long distance and / or small game.

    Also important (I think) is the fact that Taipan Veteran Standard 25 is relatively short, unlike classic rifles, that is, the rifle is quite close to the shooter and I think not every variant of the stand will be suitable so I hope the owner's advice the bullpup who uses such a stand.

    Greetings.

    I use the RRS SOAR picatinny to ARCA clamp to mount my airgun to my tripod setup. Tripod is RRS with a UniqBall gimbal tripod head.

    I'm primarily a powder burner shooter that just got into airguns to practice out to 200+ yards out of the backyard. So a lot of equipment, such as this tripod, has been carried over from that. This setup has made it easy to get hits at my 200 yard target with this .22 airgun shooting 18 grain JSB Diabolo pellets.
