While shooting during practice sessions and rifle matches itís nice to have your kit organized and easily accessible. This is especially helpful if you will be moving from stage to stage. Iím not a big gear person and when I got started in long range precision rifle shooting I would make what I already had work. My first bag was a Camelbak. I really liked the water system and beefy construction compared to a JanSport school back pack. The original purpose of the Camelbak was for hiking around Southern Nevada. It didnít take long and I soon adapted it for hauling around gear, ammunition and other necessities to keep my rifle fed and running. The Camelbak served me well but it wasnít long before I found myself wishing it was bigger. I also hated digging around trying to find a particular item.

For my 28th birthday my Dad got me a 5.11 Tactical Rush 24 VTAC back pack. I have been very impressed with it. I am approaching one year of using the bag for my shooting needs. The bag sees weekly and often daily use. It spends a fair amount of time riding in the back of my truck or Daneís Jeep along with steel targets and target stands. When shooting rifle matches I hump it around filled with the materials I need for the match. I like to travel light and I leave my drag bag in the truck. I carry my rifle on my shoulder using my TAB Gear sling while wearing the 5.11 backpack. I feel well prepared for the stages I face without being weighted down or burdened by keeping track of multiple packs. I have also found the backpack makes a useful front rest or can be used to help steady awkward shooting positions...
