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.
It's really all about the range you're shooting at, < 200 yards and it probably doesn't make a huge difference. If you start shooting long range(and it's one of the reasons the AR-15 is a popular match rifle), then even small movements can throw you way off target.
That's why I like the concept of the grippod. It's seems like a decent compromise between the two!
