Re: Choate tactical vs. Hogue
Can't speak to the Hogue, but the Choate is HEAVY .... OMG heavy.
I have a 6BR tactical rifle mounted on one and, while it is very well made and a very stable platform, I wouldn't want to carry it very far (rifle total weight 18#)
I'd suggest you consider how much weight you want to carry around - and for how long you'll need to carry it.
I have a great woman, fantastic kids, a warm place to sleep and an accurate rifle. Life is good ..............
