highlight the URL of the pic copy and paste it into the message body, then highlight that and press the button that says Img, then preview to make shure it works.

to use your own pics, sign up at photobucket.com and upload your pictures there and use the provided URL from photobucket.

Yes, photobucket is free, and I don't know about the attachment thing I've never used it, I'm new here too, I just know about the Img thing from other forums I'm involved in.

Well, I point out that a typicaly spudgun is only accurate to about 40 MOA - and that's with a riffled barrel. (shooting potatoes)
If you can't aproch that type of accuracy from prone... that's just sad. (I can do about 10 MOA from standing. (pellet rifle))
Addmittedly, these measurments are culmitive - but this would be alot of work to shave off maybe 5-10% of your total inaccuracies.

That said, if you are just looking for "cool factor" - you could attempt to make a replica of the folding meathod used by a real bipod. This is a bit difficult... but should be possible without a machine shop.

Other than that, <a href="http://www.varmintal.com/abifu.htm">varmint al</a> has something he calls a "bi-fir-pod". One could easily make an adaptation for prone use by reducing the leg dimensions.
