    Another is to get two Molle pouches and make one out of them too... If it was a dedicated shooting bad then you may as well get one to make life alittle better....

    The snipers I shot with all made thereís but there is better options, one of the reasons I started this in the first place. Bipods have their place but I would rather shoot off a bag personally. Plus a bag can be adjusted better for hight where bipod legs are limited. If your spot is canted, lots of reasons mainly being more stable of shooting position....

    Consider, though: it doesn’t ruin the rest of the day when you plant your bipod legs in the mud. Shooting off a bag is a lot better when it’s not raining.

    Everything is mission specific. Sometimes a bipod goes with you, sometimes not. Depends on the rifle, depends what you’re doing and where.

    A tripod might even be the right tool for some things. Or the rifle and nothing else but the environment.

    Be adaptable and creative. Don’t be dependent on any one tool and don’t limit yourself from using tools when they are useful.

    I was just thinking about this the other night, if training picks up you guys should do a recce type event. Cross between Guerilla Sniper and team tactics. That could be kinda cool.... Just thinking out loud ...

    I like your thinking!

    I generally use a bipod and all of my precision rifles are thus equipped, but I do occasionally practice with a ruck just for the experience. One I carry is a Sandpiper. I use it as a go bag and it usually rides in the truck, but have used it plenty for camping and hiking. Had the thing for at least 10 years now and it has served admirably. Still in great shape.

    If you want a really good pack that carries well, check out Hill People Gear. They don't really have anything they call a "3 day pack", but they have stuff similar in size.

    The Hill brothers are hunters, backpacks and former wildland firefighters, so they kinda know what it's like to live with a pack on your back.
