    Yes, my home defense shotgun has a pistol grip stock. In shooting mine, it's NOT about recoil mitigation, but what I feel is added control of the weapon. While my HDS is by the bed, handy, it will most probably not be the gun I grab for home defense. I shoot skeet about once a month, & have no issue with trading off with a standard shotgun (both are pump shotguns), but feel for my home lay-out, the pistol grip has an added value.

    This land abounds in ruffians and varmints. Their numbers are legion, their evil skills commensurate.

    Doesnt make sense for a traditional shotgun with traditional controls. I see people with Mossberg 500s with pistol grips and they now have made it impossible to attenuate the safety or action release. Why would you add something to the gun that literally worsens the ergonomics and usability?

    I bought my Mossberg 500 shotgun with a pistol grip and a collapsible stock the day Obama got elected. I wanted the shortest, legal shotgun for home protection so I could get around my house without getting the shotgun caught on furniture or doorways.---Sturgis

    I dislike pistol grips on longguns in general. I'm more of an M1 Carbine/Mini-14 kind of guy when it comes to that stuff.

    As a matter of fact I don't even own any shotguns with polymer stocks much less ones with pistol grips.
