Do you own one, ever fired one? I have fired a semilar one and with practice it can be very accurate. The full auto weapons were designed for suppressive fire, not accuracy. As most people say; Spray and pray.

Better to have the option of supressive fire ability and never need it. than need it and not have it. The bump fire stocks can be locked so as to be a regular stock. If you wait long enough the decision not to have the option will probably be made for ALL of us!

I would get the stock and the red and just lock the stock when you want semi

Bump fire can be achieved with just about any semi-auto by lighting the trigger pull enough to create a suppression fire ability.
There is no need to buy a special stock and by lighting the trigger pull you will help your long range accuracy.
Putting a red dot or a scope on a gun that can be bump fired can help you put a short burst on target as long as the recoil of the gun is not too much. (pay close attention to the amount of eye releaf you have on the scope or it will bite you)
My AK74s & my ARs with scopes can be bumped and hold tight enough to get 2 to 3 rounds bumped on a 10" gong at 300yds.

Instead of spray and pray, I believe in aim and maim. No number of misses replaces one well placed shot.

Adding a red dot to a bump fire is like putting lipstick on a pig.

Bumpfires are a complete waste of ammo, and time spent st the range. I spend my ammo practicing, not aimlessly pulling the trigger.
I wouldn't bother with it.

But that practice is very expensive.

Depends on your definition of expensive. I can reload 223 for less than i can reload 9mm. 17-20 cents/round for 223. Spend less, shoot more
