So I am thinking of getting a bipod for me new toy (Ruger mini 14). And in looking at some available models they can duel as a vertical grip. So being somewhat inexperienced with rifle shooting, is there an advantage to using a vertical grip, does it make aiming more stable, does it make weapon retention more easy, etc.?
**Off topic a bit but if anyone can point me in the direction of some condensed quality information on how to properly use a rifle, it would be greatly appreciated**
