    Police SWAT sniper

    I'm always adding new equipment to me gear bag. I'm looking for recommendation for a tri-pod with a shooting platform Nothing to fancy but durable and needs to collapse small enough to fit into a backpack

    Are you building a personal rifle? Your post says you're SWAT, you should have that already unless you suffer from a severe budget and training deficit.

    My experience over the years, is that much like snipers used to be in the military, police Sniper teams are the red headed stepchildren of SWAT.

    When I started, I was issued a Remington 700p sws (rifle, Harris bipod, leupold vx3 3.5-10x40, sling, and pelican case to hold it). Other than uniforms, I have had to come out of pocket for every other piece of equipment, or go without, including a lot of my training ammo.

    Money that is allocated for equipment usually ends up going to the entry teams. Having attended large training events with snipers from several different teams present, it seems to be rather common, sadly.

    Someone already beat me to it, but I was going to say manfrotto tripod with pistol grip ball head, and hog saddle.

    Trekker. You hit it the nail on the head. Our team snipers are the step children. All of our gear and weapons are out of pocket with the exception of ammo and some training. So I buy one piece at a time.

    Buying equipment is common for smaller multi jurisdictional (on call) teams... large departments big budgets tend to provide more equipment. I had a choice to provide my own or use the departments older (beat up) Rem 700 with 8 yr old scope... I chose to provide my own.

    I do belong to a regional team where the budget is limited and most guys purchase a lot of their own equipment Which has its pros and cons. I can purchase the gear I feel is best for me downside in the money I have to fork out
