    In surfing the net I came across this website/product. Kind of interesting, but kind of geeky looking. Would you be willing to give this try?

    I have thought about something like that...never actually came up with anything and you're right, it is a little strange looking. For some types of shooting, it might be pretty handy. I would definitely give it a try if I had a chance...$325 and up seems a little high though...might be worth it in some types of shooting...seems like all-day sports shooting might be the thing..but, it might be hot and heavy to wear all day though.
     
  4. The guy looks like a human erector set.

    It may offer some stability, but I would think it would be be as wobbly as his legs are. ( and you would probably be laughed at ) :cool:

    Looks a bit overkill to me, like a P&S with a monopod.
     
  7. If it's as bad as the grammar in the ad, I wouldn't go near it.

    The funny thing is i saw someone shooting with one. I though maybe he broke his back?

    somebody else on that sportsshooter page just posted a link to a "gut saver" from Cabela's. Basically, it's just a pocket for a fishing rod that sets on your belt....a bunch of good ideas in that thread.

    This Manfrotto pouch was mentioned on the SS site. Looks kind of simple, but I wonder how much it could hold weight wise? Would have to have some pretty strong stitching to hold a 400/2.8.

  15. I can't even imagine the carnage this would cause in a collision :eek: . Kind regards Graham
     
  16. I'd likely sucker up and buy something like that...

    ... and then never use it and it'd sit in the back of my closet forever to eventually be sold in a yard sale for $3 to some granny who wants to use it for watering her plants.

    So no. I'm not buying it.
