    mossberg 500/Butler Creek Folding Stock

    I am thinking of picking up a Mossberg 500 for HD. I was thinking of getting this one from Buds, Mossberg 50521 500SP 12 18 6SH CB PGK PRK for Sale at Buds Gun Shop $267.00 and getting this stock for it. http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id/24828.
    my question is can you still operate the shotgun with the stock folded ? I am sure you can get one shot off, but it looks like the stock would cover the ejection port. I was thinking pistol grip to get through the narrow halls in my house, then have the stock for once i get into the more open rooms.

    anyone have it and have pics with it folded and open ?

    Here is my Mossy. IMO POA is hard with the pistol grip my Mossy requires just as much aim as my .45 a compact tack stock is my recomendation.

    Personally, I would stay away from any shotgun with a folding stock or by using a pistol type grip alone. A shotgun at close quarter range will need to be aimed just as a handgun or rifle will. You will not be able to get the accuracy needed in a self defense situation with the pistol type grip. Now, if you want to combine the pistol grip with a full size butt stock? ... this is a good setup.

    The single pistol grip looks cool but is extremely difficult to control recoil and much harder to aim accurately. YMMV

    Why not just tuck the full stock under your arm, then extend and mount when needed? Seems to me like your monkeying around with a lot for no reason.

    Top folders are designed for storage issues, not for tactical purposes.

    I had the side folder on my Moss 500 and
    ended up taking it off. It just gets in the way.
    Get a pump grip instead for better control.

    You aren't going to want to be manipulating a folding stock while clearing a structure (although clearing by oneself is pretty much always a bad idea, you should instead hole up in a secure location with your shottie covering the avenue of approach, and then call in the professionals, aka police to do the clearing). Short stocking like SIXTO suggested would be a better idea. If you need to have some sort of pistol grip, go with either a full buttstock with a pistol grip, or an M-4 style collapsible stock. But be forewarned, in my experience the mossberg's safety is best manipulated with a normal stock

    Ditto, what they said.

    Other than looking "tacti-cool" I'd rather have the control that a stock provides. You can have both (mine's shown below), or get a collapsible stock, I think Tapco makes one. A shotgun can be very useful for defending a position, or in the open, but if you are going to go clear rooms in confined spaces, you may want to consider something other than a shotgun.

    I've had folders & pistol grip (shoulder) stocks on my social 870 shotgun. Eventually decided to ditch 'em & follow the old-school shottie pros -> simplify all things. FYI, your thumb is a l-o-n-g way from that Mossey's top-tang safety when you go to a pistol grip (of any sort).
