I'm new to this too and just received the Jim Owen's scope stand. It is not a thing of art but it WORKS WELL. It has a much larger tripod area than the others and I found once I set it for prone with all the sections collapsed I could raise it for scoring and when needed to go back prone, I just collapsed it and it looked good.
Jim Owens said I was one of the eight for the previous batch so you should call him. If money were no object, I'd buy a Giraud, just cause he's a heck of a nice guy. His products need no pimping.
