B&T Industries L.L.C. was founded by two Kansans to bring a unique design to shooting sports. The idea was established when a friend forgot to bring his sandbag and resorted to a time-honored solution: putting dirt in the sock he had been wearing. In 2000 the patented Accu-Shot monopod was introduced to the market. The Accu-Shot monopod provided portable stability and support needed in a lightweight mechanical device attached to the rifle. B&T Industries LLC did the same thing with the Atlas bipod in 2010, offering several patented features in a lightweight strong package that is favored by civilians, law enforcement and military riflemen nationwide.
