Bski, I've shot my Elite both ways and didn't notice much difference. I think the idea behind shooting from the hand grip rail is the same as free floating a rifle barrel. There's no direct interference with the rail during a shot.

Mike is right about the free floating barrel comparison. At long range it can make a big difference.

I have shot mine off the front rail since day one with a trigger stick and gun rest mount. I have no problems getting two inch groups at 60 yards with Swacker Broadheads.
