    I've the "predator" with the extended mag. Pistol grip came with the gun, but I've yet to add it on.

    Thought about a scope, say a 3-9 x 40. And maybe a rifled barrel for variety.

    But I haven't figured out how to carry it in a shoulder holster (j/k)

    This probably would have been better asked under the shotgun forum....

    I am not sure what the "predator" is, but I have an 8 shot "persuader" or some call it the "cruiser". I bought it NEW at a gun show a few years ago for $200. It came with a pistol grip, and heat shield.
    When I got it, it looked like this:

    At the same gun show I purchased a folding stock, a 6 shot side sadle, and I tactical light w/bracket.
    It now looks like this:


    I liked this floding stock so much I got one on an SKS.

    I don't recommend the pistol grip for a shotgun. There is a lot of recoil & accuracy will suffer.

    Another alternative is something like this:
    - It has a Hogue overmolded stock, which is shorter than normal, making the length of pull less & making it a lot easy to move in close quarters while still giving you a shoulder plant.
    - It has a Surefire light attached to barrel that is activated by my thumb.
    - On top is a Aimpoint red dot scope w/8MOA dot. This can be used with BOTH eyes open.
    - It also has an oversized safety.
    - I put a sling on it, since I use it as a vermin dispatcher at night. It has killed foxes, skunks, racoons, opposum, snakes & one coyote. Once varmint is dispatched I can sling the weapon & remove carcass.

    I do not agree with this statement at all. How far away will the BG be that I am shooting at? Across the room? Down the hall that is all of 10 feet long? My Mossberg has the pistol grip and I notice no drop in accuracy at all.
    And that grip does make it a lot easier to navigate in the house with.

    I had a pistol grip on mine and went back to the regular stock as soon as I could. The pistol grip just didn't feel right; I had to fumble around looking for the slide release. It also pulled my thumb away from the safety. Finally, it kept me from keeping extra rounds on the stock.
    I would highly reccomend the TacStar side saddle with either set up. They have a six round

    and a four round
    http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpag...eitemid=456542
    the also have an accessory that allows you to mount the light using the side saddle.

    FYI, I do NOT work for TacStar or Midway.

    on mine accuracy sucks unless its fairly close with a pistol grip and 18" barrel. but its fun as hell to shoot. You make a good point with a distance of the BG however. In a home defence your going to be close. all you need to do is get it pointed in his direction and pull the trigger, no aiming required. I find the pistol grip makes this easy and fast compared to a full stock. Its not a bird or skeet gun, its a home defense gun.

    I agree, pistol grips are good in tight spots and cool of course. Recoil is greater, but more than manageable .(moss power line 2000) Sorry no pics.

    i really dont agree with this. First, it is a shotgun and your in your house. There is no such thing as accuracy. And recoil isnt a problem if you go from the hip. Granted, it takes time to get good at, but that is with any gun and shooting style.
