After I learned how to actually use my VFG, it turned out that I was able to move the firearm much faster between targets.

The key, I found, is not to hold the VFG with a death grip, but rather to use it to pull the rifle back into the shoulder, using the bicep for pressure...

Exactly. I don't own an AR15 yet, but have been shooting the Army's for about a decade now. I found recently that switching my front hand from barrel support to pulling back on the magazine well (not the magazine) is much more stable. When I do buy my AR, I will definitely invest in a forward grip.

Go to a gun show or gun shop and try the feel of several before you decide to buy one. That way you don't just make do with the first available, but get one that feels right.

I use a folding VG and find it works good, took some time to get acquainted to but over all is good. I put my flashlights PSI switch on the grip and it works great. I found when I have to stand around for a long time it helps hold the rifle up rather then letting it hang on my tac sling around my neck.
