What our customers are saying
Just a quick review of the Black Branch alpha bag…. being new to PRS 22 shooting I wasn’t sure what all I even needed, so I did a lot of research and ended up ordering a gecko II & a alpha bag. The tacky material helped make up my mind. Love them both, especially the alpha pillow bag, great for filling voids, no buckles or anything to poke you, I actually use this a lot for a front bag.

Of course no one took a picture of me using the bag haha but they snagged one of my buddy while he was using it. I let several shooters borrow it yesterday and all of them were super impressed. Even one Wiebad sponsored shooter said “Dude that thing is really badass”. I loved the amount of grip it had. When funds allow it, I’ll definitely be grabbing the support pillow from you guys. —Justin Starkey

Black Branch … I want to thank you so much for such a great product. Shot my first PRS match last month and used what I had … a bag used for sighting in. Needless to say, it didn’t go well. From not having a steady rest to my LOFT problem (Lack Of Freaking Talent) I shot a 19 … out of 100. (no laughing)
Bought the Gecko II and the Alpha pillow bag, didn’t fire a round between matches. Shot a 34 this month and had 8 additional hits that didn’t score because I shot out of order.
The Gecko II was awesome, it gripped whatever I put it on and the grippy stuff on top holds the rifle and helps with recoil. I am so happy I chose this product. The Alpha pillow bag was awesome and helped steady those goofy positional shots. I even laid the Gecko on its side and used as a rear back…..
We ordered the Gecko 2 Elite fill bag and could not be happier. We ordered the Gecko 2 Elite fill bag and could not be happier. My daughter likes the regular fill and i recently ordered one for her on her 12th birthday. The elite fill is 100% worth the up charge and that’s not to say the regular feel isn’t awesome. The elite has a better feel to me and allows a bit more manipulation IMO. The grip on the Gecko, I believe , is what really sets it apart from competitors.
Where the Gecko comes into it’s own is shooting from the bottom legs of tank traps, off of angled bars and from all parts of metal and plastic barrels (of course off of barricades, too). At a recent match it got some interest from shooters after I used it on a tank trap stage (only able to use the bottom of the tank trap legs). That was the only bag that didn’t need to be held in place.
Moose and Elk Hunt with Gecko II. As far as the bag, I like it very much; it is pliable and light weight. I like the versatility of it. There are numerous heights/positions it can be deployed. So all in all I found it a positive product. A few people played with it and liked it.
Most excellent service for sure.
Great Bag! I’m super new to PRS shooting and when attending a recent range day, I asked if anyone had a bag I could test drive for the day. A Gecko II was loaned to me and through the day of shooting, the bag sold itself. There was something about the Elite Fill that just seemed to nestle the rifle the perfect amount and keep it locked in position. Not everyone likes the feel of the Elite Fill, but if you like it, you love it.
The Black Branch Story: Creating Shooting Bags for Competitive Shooters
hile deployed to Iraq, I used my free time to learn how to sew due to demand for uniform repair. Soon my fabric repair services were requested by soldiers all over the FOB because of the constant wear and tear on uniforms. Soldiers began requesting special-order items, such as radio pouches and grenade vests.
fter retiring from active duty, my brother Craig asked me to make him a shooting bag based off of his specifications. After using that bag at a PRS-sanctioned shooting event, Craig asked me to upgrade the bag’s design for him. He wanted a bag that wouldn’t slip or slide on smooth surfaces.
raig’s updated bag drew attention from other competitive shooters. Soon they were reaching out with requests for that bag. What began as a gift from one brother to another led to the creation of the Gecko Series of shooting bags. Based on the success of that upgraded bag, I decided to form Black Branch Shooting Sports.
he feedback I have received has been positive and beyond all expectations.
At Black Branch, we design cutting-edge accessories crafted with impeccable attention to detail and function to give serious competitors a strategic advantage.
