Agreed. All I'm saying is that the shooter shouldn't need a bipod on an M4 in order to shoot accurately. Personally, I would much rather have a broomstick in place if the bipod. Then I know I could train my weapon downrange quickly and accurately. I just don't feel like a shooter, in a real world scenario, would often need to place a well aimed shot from the prone where the bipods would add significtly more value than just good solid bone support w/o the bipod. It's looks like a nice setup, it's just curious to see the bipod.
