Is that the best shape for that?

A link on James‘ blog sent me over to Guns & Coffee: Meat on the Gun, where I saw this picture:

I couldn’t help but stare at that contorted right hand and wonder if that was actually the best shape for the grip down there.

The AR-15 uses a standard pistol grip, which works great when you hold a pistol at arm’s length:

But it doesn’t look all that comfortable when employed on a rifle about a foot from one’s shoulder.  Perhaps it’s time to design a new, straight down grip, or even one that juts slightly forward?  Maybe I’ll make a million bucks with my new design!
