The mini pixi tripod was not tall enough for the bench height. I'm 6' 1" and had to crouch too low. Although a taller chair may have worked fine. I think it would be great if shooting prone. BTW: my first outing was a total failure BUT after speaking with Richard @LabRadar he corrected what I was doing wrong & shared some tips. As soon as I get back to the range & confirm, I post a range report along with his tips.
