    Well, you'd think. But gun companies do a lot of things that don't make sense.

    If you look at this part of the video, and watch the
    recoil on the right, I'll bet it's shouldered.
    Could be shouldered. Doesn't mean the head was down for a sight picture. With that short of a stock I'd expect to see some face in the picture.

    I'm not arguing, just giving a counter point. I don't have a dog in this one.

    So some points.

    1). I know everyone wants to do Suarez one better. No matter what we do, somebody will post what they think is better or in many cases cheaper. Its almost an in-house joke. "How soon will so-and-so post a cheaper alternative to what Gabe has? Even if it is actually almost three times as costly.

    2). Very, very , very few people in the gun industry know a single mike-foxtrotting thing about gunfighting, killing, or the issues associated with that specific application. They do not listen to people like me because they really don't want to know what we want to use their products for.

    3). They would much rather some mouth-breathing fat kid buy it, then take warm showers with it and fantasize about all manner of things we shan't discuss than to actually train to kill other human beings with it.

    Those foregoing points are truth that I have seen and keep seeing since 1995.

    Some other truths -

    1). If you can't shoulder and cheek at the same time, whatever you are using IS NOT AS GOOD as if you could shoulder and cheek at the same time.

    2). If you want to hit things far away, or surgically hit things up close with that system, you need to shoulder and cheek at the same time.

    That is it boys and girls...I know a thing or two because I have seen a thing or two. Maybe those that have not will one day listen.

    You seem to really like this Johnny. So how about you buy it (its what like $300). Buy it and put up a pic shouldering it.

    It defeats the purpose of even having one. It would just get in the way, and as soon as I had a chance would beat it on someone to get it off. Just my thoughts...

    No problem Brent. And I agree. I don't think he had a sight picture, but they were
    comparing the lack of muzzle flip between the 2 guns, because the gun on the right
    barely moved. Marketing...

    Didn't mean start a $hit storm. I was just commenting on the fact that seem to
    have made it very plain to not shoulder it in the video, but to me they clearly
    had to shoulder it to help make their point of how it reduced recoil. Their way
    of promoting the product, but still maintain plausible deniability should the
    laws or ruling change in the future, perhaps. As CJ pointed out in the first
    post.

    And it's way more expensive than your kit Gabe, so that's another
    strike, too me. I am happy with the brace kit I bought from you. I
    have leave it at home on a lot of my range trips, because if I take it,
    I have a tendency to not shoot anything else.

    I do think it's kind of neat, but I enjoy looking at how poorly some
    companies market their product.

    One thing that this brace has is lawyer protection for stupid people. Red arrow indicates what appears to be a guard to prevent getting your face smashed by the slide.

    I already have an SI purchased brace and an RMR that I am setting up as a PDW. I just sent in an order for some magazines to you for the used G22 that I picked up. I have no use for that other kit lol.
