The proper stance for that setup, apparently, is the "Taco grip"

The names of the Weaver and isosceles stances make sense, but where the gently caress does the taco part of that come from?

Also that looks like an excellent way to inadvertently burn the gently caress out of your forearm.

Yeah this is the more money than sense picture. M1A tacti-lol'ed up with what looks like a cold steel tanto and a stipple gripped glock.

That's the Troy stock, right? I dunno, it still looks better than the Sage. I'd take it & and ACOG if I wanted to play M1A bedazzle magic fashion designer.

It took me a moment to find it, but this is the right way to hold/eat a taco.

I take both the stock and the ACOG if given them but to drop that much on them for your M1A just seems crazy to me.

For the price of that Chasis set up you could have another M1A

Dig that his left forearm is actually forward of the muzzle. Yeah I know it's "only" a 22 but I prefer to keep my limbs behind the gun no matter the caliber.

You know, I could still see him setting up at the range, loading his hand-rolled crispy shell with only the best ground beef, cheese & veggies, taking the time to line up his angle of attack just right... and then glaring at the kids down the lane bag-dumping an order of Taco Bell burritos, all laughing and hollering.

Come to think of it, this is an element of gün-meets at public ranges that we have been heretofore lax in realizing its full potential.

In think that may just be a casual hold, but pinky-free grips are not uncommon. I've read that the pinky supposedly unbalances the gun by putting unnecessary pressure on the bottom of the grip, possibly causing you to shot low. I can't say I take too much stock in it, though.
