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:

Positives:

  1. It’s heavy – 6.2lbs
  2. It’s small.
  3. The media: densely packed, dead sand, I’m guessing. 
  4. Handle-strap works brilliantly. 
  5. 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.

Negatives:

  1. 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. 
  2. It’s small. If you need a bag to take up volume, this will never satisfy that need. 

Summation: 

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:

“You go to war with the rear bag you have”
