The most ridiculous gun myth is that gun owners always agree on which weapons is the best.

you rather grab an 18.5" shotgun with a pistol grip and a light attached, or a 28" O/U?
Both will do the job, it's just that you will look cooler with the tactical in your ninja pajamas.

Woops. I don't wear any pj's, but who's going to be looking at me anyways with a shotgun pointed at their head?

I never really thought about it, but I can't agree more.

you dont aim shotguns, you point them...thus the other myth....shotguns need pistol grips.

have you ever tried to shoot a pg stock shotgun at waist level?
ever try to shoot a shotgun with one hand with a pistol grip?

pg advantages are a myth.
case closed.

1. most people don't try to shoot from the hip.

2. Why on earth would you want to shoot a shotgun one handed?

Just to clarify, are you talking about shotguns with just a pistol grip, or shotguns with a pistol grip and stock?

If your talking about just the grip, then I agree that the shotgun is somewhat limited in what it can do. If your talking about a pistol grip and stock, I disagree.
