Ok.. If my wife gets piss*d..I'll talk to ya guys a lot more in the next month.
No problem...but the so-called "meatgrinder" uses the same principal as railed forearms on AR's. It allows you to attach whatever accessories - such as lights, lasers, vertical grips, etc. If you look through the Ergo site, you'll see covers that snap on over the rails to prevent the grinder from getting you

For "less-expensive" alternatives....Cheaper than Dirt lights & lasersstocks and grips
the ladder-style handguard covers, as well as the solid ones are easy to trim to fit around whatever accessory you might have mounted to your rails. I showed you the "meatgrinder" forearm, because it allows you the most flexibility to mount anything to. the covers were designed to cover up the rails you aren't using, to protect your hands.
if you go to the Blackhawk site, they have a full review of that stock from Knoxx Industries. I have the Spec-Ops stock on my 500 and 590, and swear by them. My wife, my son, even younger nephews and nieces used to run away from the chance to shoot the shotguns. Not anymore. With that stock on the gun, you have more accurate aiming than a pistol grip alone would offer, it's collapsible to keep it short enough for close quarters like in the house, and the stock absorbs more recoil than most semi-auto shotguns out there, allowing you faster follow-up shots.
But it all comes down to what you are trying to be able to do with the gun, and what you want it to look like.
