Do you ever see the commercials that advertise beds? More specifically, mattresses? They all have the right mattress for you, then they show you the studies and tell you that you will sleep better on a good mattress and their probably right. What about the cabs on large trucks these days? They are simply incredible. They are like a small hotel room with all the amenities, the trucks are easier to drive and much more comfortable than they used to be and this all helps the guy behind the wheel be more efficient and a safer driver. There are things you can do to make your AR15 more comfortable too.

Grips

You hold your gun with your hands, so having comfortable grips could make your gun easier to hold. The forward grip on the AR15 is typically a plastic type of material or aluminum, both being hard to the touch and you may also experience some heat off of the barrel, depending on how you shoot you gun and this may not even bother some people, but there is a vertical grip you can install if you have a grip with rails on it, this would allow you to hold the gun with more comfort. Think about! There are also replacement grips for your right hand as well. There are many different types to choose from and there’s got to be one that feels better in your hand, maybe even one that is slightly padded with a rubber material.

The Stock

The stock can also be replaced, not necessarily a padded stock, but one that allows you to adjust the length. You may feel more comfortable with the gun a bit closer to your body or even further away. You may see through the sites better or see better through a scope if it is closer or, again, further away. Some of these stocks can be purchased with a adjustable pod to assist you when you are laying on the ground to shoot. There is a stock on the market for my AR15, which has two thumb wheels on it, one will adjust the butt pad out for your length, while the other allows you to adjust the cheek rest up or down, yes, an adjustable cheek rest. I thought that was pretty cool. Some of these parts are really slick and you never know they may work really well. By the way, these are commonly referred to as collapsible stocks.

Closing

When you are comfortable doing what ever it is that your doing you just feel better and you are more relaxed and that could make all the difference when you are trying to put a bullet on target.
