Because pew pew pew, dammit.
I didn't know much of anything about AR-15 grips (other than the fact that there are a lot of them) so I did some research. I quickly realized I wanted two things:
- A grip that wasn't black
- A nifty storage compartment in the handle
This led me to the Magpul MIAD. It has three backstraps, two finger plates, comes in a variety of colors, has a bunch of storage core options, and was under $30 at Amazon.

I bought the trigger guard at the same time, just because I could.
|This one is mine. Sorry about the glare.|
This is known as "flat dark earth," and the picture makes it look a lot more khaki than it really it. In reality it looks more like "sick baby poop" aka chartreuse.
It also comes with the default storage core capable of holding three .223 rounds:
|I have only the one because I picked it up at the range.|
So that's cool. Now I have something to hold on to when I pick it up.
Finally, I think I'm going to name this rifle Frank, because
- I'm assembling it Frankenstein style, with a mishmash of pieces, and
- Francisco is a Spanish name and Stein is Jewish; therefore, Florida.
Pew pew pew.
