    Best stock style/brand for my Mossy

    I have a Mossberg 500A in the "cruiser" style configuration with only a pistol-grip on it. Obviously, since I plan on outfitting this as a "trunk gun" for camping, self defense, etc. I want to go ahead and put a full stock on the little mossy. Here are my two questions:

    Normal stock or PG full-stock? -- I've fired both, and I like both, but which one is more accessible if you were pulling this shotgun out of a bag in the trunk of your car? Also, which fits better if you are carrying it on a sling?

    Which brand? -- ATI, Speedfeed, Knoxx? I'm not looking for anything special or high-tech. Just durable and reliable and preferable synthetic. Any suggestions?

    A regular Mossberg stock would work well.

    For a truck gun I'd stick with a normal full size stock like mossberg supplies. A pistol grip could get caught more easily on stuff while trying to pull it out of a trunk or behind a seat.

    As far as slings, it doesn't really matter in my book.

    I like what buckeye says, but I really dearly LOVE my Knoxx stock. It eats up recoil and it also now has my sidesaddle and batteries in it...

    Paladin,
    Call me crazy but I've never thought recoil on a 12 gauge was that severe, even on strings of rapid fire with my 500.

    That's because you are a Marine! You are tougher than a CDAT in the Army haha. I just think that it helps - if it doesn't have to kick then I don't want it to. Also I like the multi positional stock and that I can attach a sidesaddle without doing it on the reciever. Of course, everyone's MMV.

    Knoxx, gets my vote. You won't believe the difference and they're very well made.
