    Stock on HD gun

    I have just been wondering what do you guys think would be better for my shot gun.. It has a pistol grip with a shoulder stock, or would just a pistol grip be better? Its a 12 gauge..

    I prefer a stock with pistol grip, it just points better for me.

    I have a CAR style stock on mine. It's this gun as a matter of fact:

    I prefer a traditional stock, but with a youth length of pull. I've got a 12" Hogue stock on my HD gun. The shorter stock doesn't hamper pointability, makes it more manuverable and makes it more comfortable for the fiancee to shoot. I also just like the looks better than a pistol-gripped shotgun.

    I agree, I like the shoulder stock and the pistol grip combo. That CAR stock is pretty slick, I may have to pick one of those up.

    Buttstock. Definitely.

    I really don't understand why anyone would NOT want it. Better for aim (yes, even with a shotgun, it is good to aim instead of simply point in the general direction), better control, easier follow up shots...

    I guess I see PG'd shotguns as useless "tacticool". Sure, the CDI factor is through the roof, but their practical application for the average guy is nada.

    Yes, certain LE/military applications call for it--breaching tool, for example-- but how often are you going to be doing that if something goes bump in the night.

    I have a Knoxx SpecOps recoil reducing stock on mine almost no recoil or muzzle flip at all. Its adjustable and IMO a stock gives you a stable platform to be shooting from. I think pistol gripped shot guns are cooler looking than they are functional

    Shoulder stock with a pistol grip. You can always chicken wing it to shorten it up. The opposite can not be said for just a pistol grip.

    +1. Great stock if a little more expensive than others, but worth every penny.

    personaly i prefer pistolgrip with a stock. its comfy and useful. pistol grip alone its only good for breaching, rifle stock is not as comfy and useless if you gotta breach a door(im thinking work on that last bit) if i've got a grip with stock i can effectivly do alot more.

    Regular old fashioned stock is the best IMO. If we are talking about autoloaders, then an addition of a pistol grip might be useful.

    The pistol grip without the stock takes away two points of contact with the gun, thus taking away one of the biggest advantages of having a long gun. Recoil control suffers as well. Whether you want a pistol grip or not, at least use a stock.

    Try out both from different positions and see what works best for you. There's a lot of sound ideas posted here but what it comes down to is that everyone is different and has their own preferences. I personally have a pistol-grip without buttstock on my 12 but I would prefer to have a Knoxx SpecOps RRS. I just haven't bothered to drop the cash on yet because I do fine with what I have.

    Like I said, try both - decide for yourself. If you have the money, take a defensive shotgun course and see if it changes your opinion. In the end, the only people it should matter to are you and the thug on the other end.
