I went with mossberg,either are safe bets, I also did the whole pistol grip collapsible stock thing with my shotgun for a while there as well. I ended up putting a conventional stock back on it. For me the pistol grip really dies nothing for a shotgun,and the ergonomics are much better with the typical shotty stock IMO

Why do you want the pistol grip? Looks? I'd much rather buy a standard stocked mossberg and put the money saved towards ammo. That stuff isn't getting any cheaper and you're going to need to practice.

Same here and I wish I had a normal stock. The pg beats the crap our of your wrist and if you try to get a cheakweld it slams you in the face. I leave the skeet range looking like I got beat up sometimes. Which for all intensive purposes, I did.

Remington quality is third-world at this point IMO, however, for a true pitol grip the safety is in a better spot.

There was a post here some time back by an attorney. He laid out what would happen to you in court if you were involved in a justified shooting. You will most likely be sued by the perpetrator or his family. He stressed what would happen in court if you use a tactical style shotgun with all kinds of aftermarket features like pistol grips etc. The attorney will crucify you to make you look bad to the jury. After all he was just trying to turn his life around and was the kindest guy you were ever attacked by. Get the standard stock, preferably wood and dont gimmick it up with sights and lights and lasers. Dont modify it because he will do and say anything to make you look like a blood thirsty killer who was laying in wait for his client to show up. I have a Nova with extended mag tube and sights. It is in the safe. I keep a 20 gauge double handy. No action keeps it short and it has a walnut stock. Easy to load and unload.

many states that have passed Castle Laws have provided no recourse for your attacker to file a civil lawsuit or his family against you if the shooting was justified. in other words, he took his chances breaking into your home and got shot, if he survives, he can't sue you for damages, if he dies in the course of a criminal act, then his family can't sue you for wrongful death.

so in reality, the firearm you choose to defend your home with is really irrelevent. because if the shooting was justified, then the firearm used will be of little importance, because it will never see the courthouse th begin with.

True, many states have passed laws protecting the victim of a crime but many states have not. In states like CA and IL you can be pretty sure of going to court. How dare you defend yourself.
