    Tamer is an interesting word!

    Question, I am not familer with the Hogue set up but is this in addition to the butt stock or just the pistol grip itself?

    I have shot both set up's and can say that the "PG" in addition to the butt stock is nice to shoot and gives you controlability.

    The pistol grip only! well it aint for everybody that's for sure. I was putting ice on the old wrist trying to get use to it. Never did!

    ETA: After looking that grip over http://www.getgrip.com/main/overview/shotgun.html it would seem that it would be more suited for just the pistol grip http://www.hogueinc.com/getgrip/merc...atid=17&step=4

    The one I shot deffinatly didn't have one on it!

    Why not go for a folding stock? Short confined space use and steady, longer shot accuracy. 12 ga. do recoil hard with a pistol grip and not stock. Especially with full buck or slug loads.

    Agreed. I'd never own a shotgun with only a pistol grip.

    Fired one once. Only once. With a load of 00 buck.

    Thought I'd broken my wrist.

    Oww that hurt.

    I'm with ya acp! I was dumb enough to keep shooting it though. My wrist hurt for a month!

    I can only imagine if you were in a situation and a good grip couldn't be obtained and you had to fire anyway, it probably would break your wrist or sprain/jam it

    Sorbothane is awesome stuff- what the Kick-Eeze recoil pads are made of.

    I know what you mean, acp! But I might be willing to try again, with this material.....

    Re pistol grip shooting. I found that the critical factor for me was orientation of hand to wrist. If gun is low and hand is radially deviated - thumb in other words far off the long axis line of radial bone then it will hurt and likely leave wrist painful.

    If however the gun is high enough (or elbow dropped a bit) then hand angle made with wrist is neutrally aligned - then recoil is absorbed better and transmitted more up the arm rather than increasing traumatically the offset deviation.

    If that makes any sense!

    P95Carry: You always have some good imput! I agree with what you were saying about the neutral alignment when holding the shotgun high with elbow dropped. If you have ever watched and Tactical team or SWAT do an entry exercise that is the way they hold the shotgun with a pistol grip.

    Knoxx makes a pistol grip that absorbs recoil, not all but some. I have their Compstock, it is their version of a standard style stock that absorbs recoil very well. They also make a wire folding stock and a PG with an AR style butt stock on it. I highly recommend this company. www.knoxx.com

    i got a persuader with a vindicator grip on the back and a tac star pistol grip on the front. it kicks, but not as bad as you think. the vindicator grip soaks up some recoil and the one on the front lets my left arm take some of the recoil too.

    Those Knoxx stocks look impressive and the ticket for HD. Awesome, I will have to check it out.

    Those folks at Knoxx don't mess around. Shooting regular 2 3/4" 1oz Sluggers feel like a push on the sholder, the reduced recoils are even better. Very good idea for HD/tactical due to faster follow-up shots. I can shoot all day with no soreness. Although the Magnum loads still pack a whallop.

    I visited the Knoxx booth at SHOT...very impressive videos of their stocks in action. I even got a courtesy follow-up call from the rep I spoke too...that strikes me as good business sense and very profession...for both reasons (the video demos and the follow-up call) I think I'm going to purchase one of their stocks.
