I was on empty desert land. There were like a broken tv, fridge etc. I was purely testing to see it functioned properly, rather than aiming on anything yet.

U meant by the term "pistol" or able to shoulder it without the stock?
If u meant by the term "pistol", i haven't heard or read anything which prohibits us to shoulder it.
I just pushed the buffer tube with the foam against my shoulder.
