    Accu-shot Monopods - what say ye?

    I've been looking at these for a whole 2 hours and im wondering what they're like to shoot with. If anyone has used one, are they actually usefull? Are they allowed in long range comps and the like?

    I hate them. They're nowhere near as fast and easy to adjust, stable, or flexible to use as a rear bag, dig into the ground etc. Avoid.

    I brought one second hand from a forum member who can't believe I haven't thrown it away but I quite like it. It certainly doesn't suit every occasion though
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Been there, done that, moved on. Have yet to find myself in a situation where I thought I wish I still owned one.

    I was that person, used it like twice....Then back of the cupboard, I found it hard to set fast, not very stable, and when shooting on angles made the gun hard to shoulder properly.
    As gimp said rear bag.

    I am glad I didn't do my usual trick and buy on impulse. I gotta say they market them well but I did notice they didn't make any claims on range accuracy, just 'siting in'. I don't know what use that would actually be if the device doesn't improve firing accuracy.

    Where to find a really good bag?. Not looking for a caldwells one

    Cheers fellas for the solid advice on these.

    I'm glad I read this, I was going to fit one to the rail on the bottom of my acs stock. You all just saved me $150 odd.
