Can you operate a rifle w/o a thumbhole but with a pistol grip? Have you shot a thumbholed rifle and shown a marked improvement?
I do operate a break action, single shot, rifle with a thumbhole stock. I had operated my semi-automatic, Ruger Ranch Rifle, equipped with a pistol grip, folding stock and removable magazine for years. That rifle has been returned to its original wood stock to conform with the law but I am unable to safely and accurately operate the rifle in this configuration.
