Advanced ‘Ski Bipod’ from Canada

Here’s a product that should interest all F-Class shooters. It is a new bipod that offers unrivaled stability from an ultra-wide footprint. Nick-named the “Ski Bipod”, this impressive unit is custom-crafted by Canadian Henry Rempel, who also conceived the design. The height of the bipod is adjustable as is the distance between the runners or “skis” that contact the ground. And there is a cant adjustment allowing the rifle to be leveled on uneven ground. The reason Henry used ski-like runners rather than flat pads is that this allows the rifle to slide slightly reward during recoil. That eliminates much of the hop and rotation associated with conventional bipods.

Forum member Keith Skjerdal reports: “A lot of F-CLass guys in Canada are using the Ski Bipod made by Henry Remple out of Calgary. It is very well made and steady as a conventional pedestal rest. Even some guys in the USA and Britain have them now. If you want the best, this is it, in my opinion. This makes the trip to the mound easier than with a big pedestal rest. Downside? Well, since the Ski Bipod attaches to your rifle, it counts in your total weight under the rules. The Ski Bipod adds roughly 3.5 pounds to your gun’s weight. The cost is around $400-420 Cdn (this basically covers the cost of materials and all that milling work.)

To get one, contact Henry Rempel from Calgary. He does not have a web site. His home phone number (after 7 pm) is 1-403-272-8416. I think his email is henry.rempel [at] hotmail.com.”

MyOutdoorTV.com Upgrades Website

MyOutdoorTV.com has been relaunched with a new design that gives viewers more options in how they select and watch videos. Now organized into channels that target viewers’ interests, the redesigned site allows easier navigation of MyOutdoorTV’s large library of outdoor programming.

“With our library of titles and individual videos growing so rapidly, we’re making sure the site evolves to keep pace,” said Chris Moise, CEO. “Our new design does a better job of highlighting our award-winning programming by category[.].”

The home page of the redesigned site lists six networks that classify shows by general topic: Wildlife & Nature, Fishing, Hunting/Shooting, The Showroom, State Explorer, and Travel. The viewer can choose a network to explore, or go directly to a favorite show or state by clicking on “Online TV Listings.” One can also use the site’s Search feature to find an activity, species, location, or other keyword.
