Most Versatile Shooting Bag
After a few years of use, I have come to realize that the one shooting bag that is probably the most used is the Wiebad weighted rifle bag known as a DRC Fortune Cookie.
Here are it’s attributes which can be both a positive and a negative depending on the application:
- It’s heavy – 6.2lbs
- It’s small.
- The media: densely packed, dead sand, I’m guessing.
- Handle-strap works brilliantly.
- The comma shape works well in a myriad of applications: car windows, ledges, fence posts, rear bag support, front of the rifle, back of the rifle, cradling the rifle, comma up, comma down, half-moon on it’s side.
- It’s heavy. 6.2lbs and it feels like it. Imagine lugging around a dead, fat-ass cat. Not going to be your first choice for mountain goat hunting. There are AR-15 rifles that weigh less than this bag.
- It’s small. If you need a bag to take up volume, this will never satisfy that need.
I am not qualified to review or postulate opinions about precision rifle gear. The truth is, all gear is as specialized as the use case. But of the gear I own, and the use cases I encounter, I reach for the Wiebad Fortune Cookie first. Then adjust as needed. A military philosopher once said it better than I ever could:
