I have several handguns and am looking to add a Mossberg to the arsenal. I've shot standard 12 gauge shotguns but never the pistol grip. From what I've read and seen in videos, the 590 with the pistol grip is pretty sweet. What are some of the pros and cons for the pistol grip?

pistol grip shotgun

i personally dont care for a pistol grip since it takes away the control of a shotgun and after a few good strong shells they hurt your wrist

what about....

Good point. What about the adjustable tactical stock? Would that be the best of both worlds? The primary use will be range shooting and of course, defense.

ok, one more question

since control (or lack thereof) is the key with the pistol grip, what is you guy's opinion on the barrel stabilizer with the pistol grip?

thanks for the input and the feedback. Sounds like I should look more to the tactical stock or at least find friends with the full compliment of all the various models. :)

There are many mossberg pitol grips....but greasy is right, it loses control of the weapon. Stick with a colapsable stock with pistol grip for about 60 bucks

Pistol grip shotguns

are worthless for home defense. You don't need to be able to conceal a gun in your home and at close ranges like you find in a house, you still need to aim as even a 14" barrel has almost no spread in the 6-8 feet in which you will likely be firing.
