School me on pistol cheek-rests

This would be to get a more accurate platform without all the anxiety of SBR and stock laws. Plus the cheekrest would be far shorter than a brace or stock anyway. 

My other thought was to just purchase the picatinny rail buffer tube adapter and make one.

    if braces go the way of the Akins Accelerator, then I’ll just go back to the circa 2017 pistol tube with a cane tip on it to keep it upright in the safe

    This…. But I like the one on your link.  Looks like it’ll do the job.  My only concern is that with the company calling it a cheek rest, they are de facto to saying hey, I made the tube into a stock, which in no bueno…

    It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎

    Wait, so I can just buy the fixed picatinny buffer adaptor with the tube on it and add something soft. Doesn't have to have a stock on it. Like you said, soft rubber tip. 

    Maybe drill this dog toy? LMBO. But looks like it might make a great cheek rest.

    Uhm, that's interesting!  Short, compact, and gives me the third point of contact. Please, let's hear the pros and cons

    A member here suggested a tennis ball to me years ago.  Never got around to trying it, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.
