What do you guys use?
Bipods? is it worth the cash?
Hard cases or Padded bags?
anyting else like lasers/lamping kits?
i've got bipod on the BAM, to be honest, i take more shots without it. it's handy when zeroing and it's great for keeping the rig off the ground like the mini bipod/rest on the EV.
slings.......highly recommended, hands free, way easier to carry the rifle, help to steady the aim.......etc
better safe than sorry, hard cases all the way.
i would put a sling pretty high on your list....i want to get a bi pod and am told you can fit it to your slings swivil so no need to drill any extra holes.
i think that a hard cases gives more protection but using a padded bag isnt too bad, a lot of guys just use a padded carry bag.....bi pod is use full for putting it down while walking around an FT course, or waiting for some one to finish in the next lane
