A HUNT TO REMEMBER Friday, November 9, 2012
Good morning Dawn and Kenny from Alsice, Alberta Canada. Before I left on my hunting trip to Alberta, I scoured the Internet in search of a bi-pod or tri-pod that would connect to my rifle and provide enough stability to enable me to make longer shots and not not have my target dancing around in my scope.
At 65, my shooting steadiness is not what it was thirty years ago. Add to this the fact that I would have to be downing mucho coffee to keep warm enough to spend all day in a blind in snow and freezing temperatures, and one has a recipe for disaster.
The last thing I wanted to do was spend thousands of dollars on a hunt, travel from PA to Alberta and then choke when I had to make the shot.
Luckily, I finally found the Kenco website and was able to talk with Kenny at great length about my situation. He was an amazing help and was extremely patient with my many questions. Needless to say, I bought the Kenco tripod, got it in two days, short four times with it, packed it away and headed to Alberta.
Attached are the photos of my trophy mule deer and whitetail that I took. Without your tripod, I would have come home empty handed and disgusted and ashamed.
My 265 lb. 4 x 4 mulie was shot at 356 yards--right through the heart with my .280 Remington/156 grain Norma ammo and it dropped in its tracks. Two days later, I took this unbelievable 289 lb. 8-point Whitetail at just under 400 yards and drilled it right through both shoulder blades--it went less than 30 yards.
So thanks for designing and building and selling one of the most useful and, in my opinion, one of the best engineered and built tripod on the market.
Sincerely, Bill Benigni, Everett, PA
RECEIVED MY STEADY SHOT
Just received the Steady Shot I ordered Monday. Took about 20 minutes to get it together. I can tell that this will be a great piece of gear for the field and target shooting. I have already staged ALL of my old benches and mounts, etc by the garbage. Wish I had seen this 20 years ago (or whenever you started to make them).
One recommendation. Add a couple of close up photos of the top and bottom tripod castings and how they go together with the pivot knob, etc. That was the only part of the assembly that took me a few minutes to figure out. Everything else was clear in the photos.
I'll be shooting tomorrow and fully expect this to be a painless event compared to all the other rigamarole I have put up with in the past. Seems it should take 5 minutes or less to set up and tear down.
Thanks for the quick turnaround.

A GREAT TRAINING DEVICE
The Steady Shot Tripod is a great device to give the young shooters the confidence to sight in and squeeze the trigger.
Here is a picture of my eight year old daughter shooting a 17 caliber off the tripod.
Thanks for a great product.
