What bags do you use, how much were they, what do you use them for, and why do you like them?

I've got a pump pillow ($100) for barricade support and str8 laced for a rear bag ($60).  I use a bt silo rail mount bag for front support on barricades.  I think it was around $100.

My wife made me some really nice bags, 15" x 8" x 4",   8" x 7" x 4",   8" x 7" x 3", and 8" x 5" x 2". And we put adjustable velcro straps on all 4.

I'm in the process of ordering a Goody Bag from Sarges Shooting Bags  I found him after a few guys from the MoST group recommended him.  It measures 10"x8"x4".  I'll post a review of it in the gear reviews when it comes in and I get a good chance to play with it.

One thing I'd ask from the other responders here is what type of fill you're using in yours?  Or maybe asked another way, is how firm is your bag?

My pump pillow is quite firm.  My str8 laced is... Hard to describe.  Firm, yet pliable. You'd have to try it.

The 2 big bags have extra-firm foam, and the 2 small bags have Christmas snow from Menards (we left it in the bags and poked a few holes.)

I've got a few bags that my girlfriend made. Making them is a breeze, and cost maybe $5 a bag!

Fabric: duck canvas
Fill: poly beads
Other: nylon strap

Just ordered a "Fat Bag" from Armageddon Gear for position shooting & anxious to try it out. It was half the price of the Wiebad.

I just got both the regular and the large I really like both and you can get both for the price of the pump pillow

I've got both fat bags as well.  Good stuff, great price.  I shot a match this weekend that allowed you to use only 1 bag the entire match.  No going back and forth.  I used the large fatbag ant I only had issues on tight barricades.  Believe it or not, it worked awsome as a rear rest.  I used the small end of the wedge to support my rifle, and hugged the large end like a pillow.  It was a solid set up.

Wiebad pump - $106.  I use it a lot.  Mostly under the elbow or against my body on the trigger finger side.  Also using it on the rooftop now, but just learned that at a class. 

Wiebad tac pad - $70.  I don't use it as much.  Sometimes I sit on it or put it under a leg.  I've used it as a rear bag when the back really needs lifted.  I use it on the front for some barricades. 

SAP run-n-gun- $60. I use this all the time.  As a rear bag and sometimes on the front for barricades. 

Armegeddon X-Wing - $35. This one gets used on the front for barricades mostly.  I also use it as a rear bag when trying for a tight group.

Custom bags from a person in Utah. He makes great bags and they work excellent fit a lot less than Wiebad.
