"Where to you put your vertical hand grip? "

I keep it in my jeans most of the time, except when I have to pee or have a better use for it.

I simply glue a tie tack or a hat pin on the forestock for a handstop. They are easy to shape. If you like to change the medallion it can be attached with two sided tape.

I have a carbine length AR with the Magpul MOE handguard. For me, right in the middle works standing and shooting (I have always held my hand right in front of the trigger guard while shooting a long rifle, that equates to the same position with the stock completely extended out)

I also have toyed around with different shooting positions and I think it really comes down to shoulder width, arm length and how your cheek weld lines up. In other words they are adjustable for that reason, individual preference and build

I had been battling with deciding weather or not I like the VHG for a while now. I bought an AFG today and it feels really good. Will take it to the range this weekend and see. I have an AK coming in and cant wait to get out there anyway.
I do like shooting with a bipod though. Any recommendations on a good bipod I could use in tandem with the VFG?

Get a Grip Pod. If you want both thats probably the best weight less clutter option.

I've had all kinds of VFGs and AFGs. I don't like em. I think a lot of people get em because cool guys with beards have em. Sometimes simplicity is the best option.
