This style seems like perfect HD weapon. I don't understand why anyone wants a rear stock when the furthest range you'd probably be shooting is 20 feet?
Exactly what model is this?
that's the model i have; i added a stock to mine on the advice of others here. it's the breacher model. it's harder to aim with the pistol grip only; the stock makes aiming a whole lot more accurate, and cuts the recoil way down. pistol grips are only cool in the movies.:image035:
The shotgun in the photo is the Mossberg 500A Cruiser Tactical.

Really? I don't have a lot of trouble with mine. Maybe Brownie or FlagFlyFish will chime in and back me up. I have that exact model and shoot skeet with it. From the relaxed position to hitting the clay is usually around half a second - 3/4 second from the throw (either of you, if I'm giving myself too much credit then lemme know - I'd kinda like to get a solid time down). Now I'll never go pro with it and I won't hit with quite the same accuracy as some of the other guys but I'm fast out of the gate and hit with decent regularity on a clay. Regardless, that little bead sight on the end is all you need for a follow-up with a missed first shot. I've even shot skeet using a two-handed pistol style grip on that rig.
Now I can also push 100+ rounds at a time with this thing. I've got meaty mitts and my wrists never complain. The mileage will vary according to the user. Sure the pistol grip is cool but I only know a few guys who can shoot it with the same gusto. Really, to make it completely practical shotgun, I would suggest a pistol-grip or normal buttstock... Again, whatever the end user prefers. As I said in my post, I'm planning to eventually pick up one of those Knoxx Tacticals. I've got about 1200 rounds through mine though and it never complains - even during the hottest sessions.
I'm not a fan of the pistol grip shotguns and think they are a horrible idea for most people, but one can shoot them very accurately with a little practice.
I agree with SixBravo's post 100%.
The buttstock adds extra length, which would (I think) cause some restriction in the tight confines of a hallway or other closed area. The Japanese Samurai used to carry two swords (long and short) just for this reason. So it would seem natural that in a closed-in HD situation, one would want a shorter weapon????
Someone please explain the seeming preference for buttstock in HD shottie.

Am still awaiting arrival of my Remington 870P 12ga SBS. Should be any day now.
