Personally, I would go with a Bi-pod. I've been shooting off of sand bags at my range with my mossy since I've had it (not even a month yet) and the bags are a little bit of a pain to move around.
If you plan on getting your own set a bags, it would just mean more weight to carry with you to the range, however far/close that may be. With a bi-pod, you basically grab your rifle and your set. You also have more control over the hight with a bi-pod then you do with using sand bags.
But like you said, it's also a personal choice too, so someone might take the bags over the pod.
