    I’m having a hard time finding the explanation in terms I can clearly understand. The question is how far out can I extend the brace? I understand I can shoulder it like a stock, but I’m unclear how far out I can extend it. Can someone dumb down the answer for me?

    As far as the buffer tube allows. Its a brace; how or what you brace it against isn't an issue.

    13.5"

    I make mine 13.25" just to have some wiggle room if Johnny Law wants to get OCD with the tape measure...

    I'd like to see some more authoritative evidence then just an article written by a guy named Scott published at the US Concealed Carry website.
    Scott's article does say 13.5 is the limit on length of pull, but he doesn't cite any source other than a verbal phone conversation with Jeff, the head of a gun accessory company.

    Did ATF ever say in writing that having a pistol brace with a length of pull past 13.5 inches makes it a shoulder stock?

    Apparently Jeff also claimed that ATF has banned all styles of fore-grips of any style , even angled, for pistols. Jeff's statement doesn't seem to be true and has not been confirmed by people who have searched the Internet specifically looking for ATF written memos / letters / published statements about this question.

    I just measured the length of pull on my home defense shotgun's
    wood buttstock.
    It comes out about 12.6 inches, and is the perfect size
    for quick snap shooting.
    So if (IF) I were limited to a 13 1/2 inch length of pull
    on a braced pistol, that would be no hardship for me.
