Magpul's new Angled Fore Grip is the best thing since sliced bread. On second thought, it's probably safer to call it the best thing since the vertical fore grip. The AFG is revolutionary. You might even call it "dynamic." After all, it hails from the company's think tank for shooting: Magpul Dynamics. Whatever superlative you call it, make no mistake… the AFG is going to improve the way you shoot-- guaranteed! ***
*** Note: The AFG is going to improve the way you shoot--- probably!
For one thing, it's certainly designed better than the TextEdit application on my Apple MacBook. It was quite frustrating writing this particular newsletter. Every time I typed "afg" the program automatically changed it to the word "fag." I can't figure out if my Mac is homophobic or flaming. I knew I should've never downloaded those Depeche Mode tracks!
The AFG is one of Magpul's "theory-based products," which basically means there was a lot of forward thinking involved in its development. The innovative design really takes the vertical fore grip to the next level by incorporating better body geometry. Magpul says the AFG "takes into account natural body mechanics and provides a comfortable and stable user interface that reduces fatigue and allows for more precise weapon control." In recent years, a lot of schools have been coaxing shooters into a more forward grip position, aligning the high hand with the bore-- not unlike what you do with you support hand while shooting a pistol. This not only makes sense, but the practice also helps mitigate recoil and facilitates faster and more accurate follow-up shots.
If this is all sounding too crazy on paper, Magpul can help. They've produced a professional series of instructional DVDs. Whatever your skill level, you can definitely glean something substantial from these videos. In other words, they're well worth the price of admission. Trust me. I watched them this weekend. I couldn't hear what the instructors were saying because the Depeche Mode was cranked up, but I got the gist of it.
All joking aside, do yourself a favor and give Magpul's new Angled Fore Grip a try. I think you'll like it. That's all for today, my friends.
Have a good one and God bless. -- Evan
