Anyone use that T-pod? http://www.botachtactical.com/fabtpod.html
Who had the Tango Down stubby?
t-pod looks like garbage. if you want a combo VFG/bipod get the grip pod (with metal feet) - ive read pretty good things about them.
i use a KAC VFG because the TD one is too big in diameter. try a few out and buy what you like.
Grip pod extends too far for my taste
what barrel length and rail length do you have? you could get a separate bipod and VFG
It's sort of light weight.
Bushy M4 with 14.5 barrel and Y comp perm. attatched
JP Enterprises Carbine Length Handguard
Waiting for my Magpul Buis
Putting my TK10 light on it too. I want to keep this lightweight and balanced.
maybe just get a VFG? how much do you think you'd really use a bipod?
When the world ends and I gotta shoot prone.
Good point. If you have to shoot prone you can be very accurate without a bipod simply by positioning yourself properly.
i've gotten good groups from my 14.5" @ 100yds when using my mag as a monopod YMMV
People do really well without a bipod by using two 30 round mags cinched together with a arredondo mag yoke and then with arredondo badepads. Of course a real bipod is more stable but it works.
I personally never cared for the verticle grip. It doesn't really do anything.
Hell yeah, that's how I run mine.
Thumbs forward FTW.
i should try moving mine all the way out and seeing how it works.
Looks like the handstop the NRA high power guys sometimes use. Again I'm trying to figure out why?
For the fastest possible index the cocked wrist index finger forward is the lastest thinking of what's fastest. All the "go fast" guys seem to be doing and teaching this. Like with pistol the cocked wrist of the support hand helps manage muzzle flip with leverage.
For rifle your often changing hand position on the handguard for the various shooting positions. Where you hold for prone and where you hold for unsupported free hand, and where you hold for barricade are all different. Seems the vert grip kind of limits you for some of these.
Now I do use some small swivel sling studs kind of like markers for hand position. Just something to give tactile feel to know my hand is in the right spot. Makes it easier to hit my shooting grip after a mag change for example, or index the baricade off of for a barricade hold. This is a whole other post in itself though.
That is how Chris Costa teaches it in the magpul video. FWIW I have the TD in foliage and love it.
I bought it.
I've got a full length TD and I really only use half of it at most. I wish I would of went with the smaller length. Thumb forward and I use my thumb on top of the side rail for added support.
i used the M4 handguards that came with the rifle for a bit before switching over to a rail/VFG combo. the VFG is a lot more comfortable for me to shoot with.
the other weekend i put the M4 handguards back on just to see if there was any difference, and it didnt feel near as good as the VFG.
it really just depends on your shooting style, what you're doing with the rifle and what feels good for you. to say "you have to use a VFG" or "using a VFG is ridiculous" are both ignorant statements - its down to what each user prefers.
Who the hell let you know that?
