While these are all good options and I’ve used many of them with great success, there’s no denying that they can have their shortcomings. Some of the mounts, vices, and jigs can be cost prohibitive to shooters. I totally get it; sometimes it's hard to justify spending a good bit of money on something “just” to steady your gun. They can also be heavy. Let’s face it: most of these items aren’t compact. Most options don’t fit in your range bag, and if they do (like shooting bags), they’ll weigh your range bag down in a hurry.
