    Yes, I did build them myself. The thread Jerome provided is very informative as well. You can make the dang things to suite your own personal needs. Mine are about 5 to 6 inches taller than me, and you can spread them out to adjust to almost any terrain.

    Like I said the bamboo was cut at approx 6ft. 6 in. and the wrapping is Hemp rope, some super glue, and some electrical tape and " Viola " shooting sticks.

    wouldn't dream of bringing this one buddy. That rifle was the first grabbed from the safe, and has never assaulted anyone. It's no different than a Browning BAR, just cosmetics. I only backed up G.I.Joe from the brush mate, honors to the foot soldiers....
