That would be me. I intended to buy a pistol grip with a fold out stock thing but was talked out of it by the gun store employee who basically said I would hate it, it would be awful etc. So I bought a Mossberg Maverick 12G and it is too LONG for me. Had no problem shooting it and I didn't fall over either but it is too long for me to pump it easily. This is going to be for home defense. I will practice of course but it is not going to be used to hunt or any other purpose. I have several handguns and a AR 15 but would like to have a shotgun as well. I am not small, 5'5", just average length arms. I gave the Maverick to my 6' son. Suggestions?
