    Is there an advantage to having the sling mounts on the side of the gun? Just seems awkward to me (visually).

    Probably lies flatter against your body, but I agree with you on the visual.

    I don't have the luxury of experience, so I'll take your word if it isn't anything to be concerned about. There are many mount options and they are to the side.

    It makes a big difference on comfort when you shoulder the gun...and the holder for extra shells and the watertight battery storage are nice little bonuses.
    Does the cheekpiece help with recoil at all, instead of having an unadorned "tube" on or under under your cheekbone? Not concerned so much about an AR-15, but I wonder about something stouter, and particularly about a shotgun.

    Also, I think I notice that if you want a shell carrier on your buttstock, you're SOL with a cheekpiece? Surely someone has a solution to that. I haven't tried to figure out if you ever put a shell carrier out past the receiver.

    The cheekpiece? No. The stock itself is what contains a recoil-reduction mechanism.

    Although it isn't obvious because of the straight-on angle of the photo, the Midway link shows you the side of the cheekpiece (opposite the side you put your cheek against) that sports a holder for 5 spare shells.

    Well, that makes sense. I saw a stock over the weekend that if you added the cheek piece, you couldn't add a shell carrier, or at least you couldn't add the shell carrier the site was recommending as an accessory. I thought that was kinda dumb, considering they were from the same manufacturer, if I recall.
