      No law against having a 12 and a 20.

      :D

      If I see one, I will holler.

      I just never have been a Mossy fan, but they have improved in the past 15 or 20 years.

            I have a Remington 870 12 Gauge. My wife is not very receptive to pistols so I thought the 20 Gauge tactical may be a good option. I will try ordering one. Thanks

              Only "bad" thing about pistol gripped shotguns is that most people cannot move the safety to "fire" without breaking their grip to do so.

                I dont like the pistol grip at all. It just doesnt feel right.

                    i got a a nice S&W J frame 38 at a pawn shop for my wife.




                    That was a dang good trade.


                    :bwahaha:



                    Seriously, I have a great wife. A few years ago we were out having dinner and out of the blue she asked if I needed another gun safe.

                      Pistol grip shotguns are only good for movie gun battles in my opinion

                        If the safety is on the trigger guard, like A Remington or a Benelli, then ok. But a tang safety with a pistol grip sucks.

                        I had an 870 turkey gun with a pistol grip and collapsible stock. Hardest rectilinear gun I have ever shot. Traded it in on a G17.

                          Safety is up top on Mossbergs and is easier to access(thumb) than the 870 where it is behind the trigger guard. The main problem I could see with an autoloader being pistol gripped is perhaps someone might not put enough shoulder behind it to cycle properly....now all Brad needs is one of these contraptions

                              I'm a simple man who likes simple things with simple stocks/grips with simple safeties where i simply slide my simple thumb up and over in a simple short, smooth motion while never breaking my simple grip to move my simple safety simply forward.... ;)

                              Santa Claus brought me a Remington 1100 for Christmas in 1973, so the safety on the trigger guard is quite ingrained in me.

                                  Mine was stolen '77 or so. The replacement was stolen in '80 or so. I switched to the 870 so I could shoot 3 inch buckshot, still have the 870.

                                      Pistol grip ONLY (no stock) are useless.

                                      Stock w a pistol grip isnt my thing but they arent useless.

                                        Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.

                                        The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
