    Which monopod for a precision rifle?

    I want to pick up a monopod for my PR and was looking at an Accu-shot but wondering if I should be considering something else. Which monopod are guys using/recommending?

    Curious why you want to use a monopod? They are harder to stabilize. I use bags, and don't see too many using monopods. A lot of folks using bags as more flexible.

    I agree on the bag, I'm thinking for field use where I'm not packing around a bag and something more expedient than wadding up an outer garment and lower profile than a pack.

    Yep understood. I do see a few folks using them but seems like nearly everybody I see in my area have moved to using bags, mainly for stability and better positional support. This article might be an interesting read on leading bag options; there's one or two in there, like the SAP one which you can even tether to the rifle, that are designed to be more 'carry-able' for field use. FWIW. I've been using the Triad Tactical small one as a GP rear bag and loving it.

    Same. Prefer bag, strapped to back pack.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms, as well as the major Food Groups.

    I have an Accu-Shot and have been pretty happy with it. I run it on a couple of different stocks like the Sopmod on a DMR and on a Tikka TX3 A1. One of the reason is that I like it as a bag rider as well. Im becoming more of a fan especially on a grab and go as I at least always have something. To my knowledge nothing as clean and well constructed as the Accu-Shot
